Hello everyone! Welcome to my tour stop for Return Once More.
I LOVED this story. Return Once More was an amazing read! It had everything I love about YA fiction, and still managed to be unique. In this historical/sci-fi/time traveling/dystopian the fate of the future rests in the hands of a few. Check out my review here.

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.
A few lanterns lit the interior of the rickety wooden building. It smelled of animals and hay, of spicy earth and poop. Between the lanterns, the last beams of setting sun pierced the cracks in the ancient wood, combining with the warmth spilling through my body and casting the whole moment in a surreal glow.
“Why must you leave, Kaia? We don’t have long. I had hoped we would spend these days together. I promise to behave.” His voice was soft, coaxing.
In another lifetime, another past or present or future, I would have done anything he’d asked. And I wouldn’t have wanted him to behave.
“Do you think I’m insane? Not right?” I tapped my head, unsure if the translation came through correctly when a Greek word that wouldn’t quite fit into English fell from my lips.
He frowned and reached out, setting his hands on my hips. His long fingers wound around my back, pressing lightly through the thin fabric and weakening my knees. This molecular compatibility thing wreaked havoc on my basic motor function. And with keeping down dinner.
“I do not know what to think of you, Kaia. You are clearly something different. The things you say, they do not seem possible. And yet…”
“And yet?” I pressed.
“And yet they feel not only possible, but true. If a man cannot trust one’s heart, then what can he trust?”
My chest filled with happiness and I grinned up at him, struggling to breathe. “Your heart says you can trust me?”
“My heart seems to know you, even if I do not. Yet.”
