Book Review: Return Once More by Trisha Leigh

From Goodreads:
If you could learn the identity of your one true love—even though you will never meet— would you?

Years have passed since refugees from a ruined earth took to space, eventually settling a new system of planets. Science has not only made the leaps necessary to allow time travel, but the process engineered a strange side effect—predicting your one true love.

If you could save your one true love from an untimely death, would you be able to resist?

Sixteen-year-old Kaia Vespasian is an apprentice to the Historians—a group charged with using time travel to document the triumphs and failures of the past—and she can’t resist a peek at her long-dead soul mate in Ancient Egypt. Before she knows it, she’s broken every rule in the book, and the consequences of getting caught could destroy more than just her new romance.

Or would you have the strength to watch him die?

But when Kaia notices a fellow classmate snooping around in a time where he doesn’t belong, she suspects he has a secret of his own—and the conspiracy she uncovers could threaten the entire universe. If her experience has taught her anything, to changing history means facing the consequences. The Historians trained her to observe and record the past, but Kaia never guessed she might have to protect it— in a race across time to save her only chance at a future.

I absolutely loved this book.  It wasn't perfect, I had a couple of issues with the time travel stuff and the one true love thing didn't make much sense, but I just didn't care because there was just something about this book!

Time travel moral dilemmas, action, romance.  Twists and turns, twists and turns.  

That ending.  Jaw dropping.  Need. Next. Book. Right. Now.

  1. Sounds like a really good time. A jaw dropping ending, I'm all for it.

  2. Oo I can't remember if I've heard of this one. Something about it feels familiar but it wasn't on my radar. I'm trying to take a page from your book and finish all the series I have hanging out there but it definitely sounds like I need to give this one a try!
