A thousand lives.A thousand possibilities.One fate.Marguerite Caine grew up surrounded by cutting-edge scientific theories, thanks to her brilliant physicist parents. Yet nothing is more astounding than her mother's latest invention—a device called the Firebird, which allows people to leap into alternate dimensions.When Marguerite's father is murdered, all the evidence points to one person—Paul, her parents' enigmatic star student. Before the law can touch him, Paul escapes into another dimension, having committed what seems like the perfect crime. But he didn't count on Marguerite. She doesn't know if she can kill a man, but she's going to find out.With the help of another physics student, Theo, Marguerite chases Paul through various dimensions. In each new world Marguerite leaps to, she meets another version of Paul that has her doubting his guilt and questioning her heart. Is she doomed to repeat the same betrayal?As Marguerite races through these wildly different lives—a grand duchess in a Tsarist Russia, a club-hopping orphan in a futuristic London, a refugee from worldwide flooding on a station in the heart of the ocean—she is swept into an epic love affair as dangerous as it is irresistible.

I listened to this on audiobook, which worked quite well. I enjoyed the narration (even the cheesy Russian and British accents, which helped set the tone), and it moved quickly.
I instinctively rear away from love triangles, and I could feel this one coming very early on. I'm grateful that she chose between the two of them fairly quickly and didn't waver on her decision, even if she still held attraction for the un-chosen.
I really loved the Russia portion of the book. Compared to the time in the other dimensions, it may have been a bit long, but I really enjoyed the character and relationship development that happened in that time. I loved the Anastasia vibe; very romantic and beautiful.
The writing style had a lot of "telling" instead of showing--particularly in explaining Marguerite's thought process directly. Because it's first-person and YA, this is certainly forgivable and added to the character development, but at times probably could have been trimmed down.
The book ends on a very resolved, satisfying note, but I'm still interested to see what the sequels bring.

Generally, there was too much hand-holding for me in the story. Everyone was just tripping over themselves to make sure Meg is alright. She never takes responsibility for anything b/c everyone is too much in love with her. And the modern version of 'noble idiocy' with regards to Paul and his secrets... When is it ever a good idea to hide things away and miscommunicate due the fear of hurting another? It is never worth the headache.

I liked the book. Just with reservations.
