After everything that happened last semester and so many of the people she loves depending on her, Kaia Vespasian knows the best thing to do is keep her mouth shut, her butt in her chair, and her head down. In a few months she’ll be a certified Historian, and with the position could come some leverage.

When the Elders announce that inconsistencies have been found in the

*It's published!* I NEED THIS.



Trisha just hit us with the cover out of nowhere, I almost had a heart attack when I saw this on Facebook. I am so excited. And slightly terrified because of the title. Still waiting for the synopsis. Please be gentle towards my feelings Trisha.

This is one of those cases where I throw the book at you and yell "READ IT.". Well, if you haven't read the first one, I throw that at you and tell you to read it. I looooved the first book so much, and was so excited for this sequel (and, for now at least, conclusion). And you'll be happy to hear that it made my favorite books of 2016 list!

I can say nothing about this book without

"I didn't want to leave my friends, didn't want to leave this place of hope, actually, but we had responsibilities - ones that no longer felt too much for my small shoulders."

So, I can't say much about this book without spoiling the first novel, but this book suffered a serious case of the sequel syndrome. Return Once More was one of my favorite, favorite reads from last year, and I'm undoubtedly the biggest sucker when it comes to time travel and historical fiction. The ending of the

Over the course of the past few years, I've discovered I love a good time travel book. Be it a Young Adult novel or not, mixing it with Historical Fiction or not, I love the delving into the past or diving into the future if explored properly. Where Return Once More was a simple and straight-forward time travel book that I found completely delightful, Exist Once More seems to be a book filled with conflicting ideas.

With this sequel, which I know was a difficult one for the author to get out to

Not exactly better than book 1 but a great read nonetheless since I didn't have to deal with teenage love too much. Plus I already mentioned the author has a great writing style. I found it difficult to skim.

Just Wow.

I first fell in love with The Historians in book1 - Return Once More - last year and have been trying to find the second book for ages. How amazing was it when Amazon told me there was a sequel! The only downside is this is the last Historians Book *cue sadness*. Trisha Leigh paints a world so perfectly "natural" that I was swept up in the characters and the world she has created in the future.

Loved the conclusion to the first book. Lots of adventure, angst, fighting the system and young love!
I don't think anyone understands how ready I am for this book to be released

This was not as good as the first one but I still feel that Trisha Leigh did not disappoint. I still very much enjoyed this second book!

Kaia was still as lovable as ever. How can you not love someone as loyal to those she cares about and brave as her? I'm glad she hasn't forgotten Caesarion with everything that was going on like the Return Project and the cliffhanger in Book 1. I couldn't help but smile every time his name was mentioned.

Although I missed Analeigh, I was happy with the

It's a good book. I think this book's a bit unusual, like dystopian, sci-fi and time travel? Unusual. But in a good way.

In the end of book one, I hoped that Kaia would be together with Oz. And, I know she couldn't move on from Caesarion, because he was her first love and True. But, I just love Oz. The main reason is, I always love glasses, especially a guy with glasses, and Oz happened to be just that. A guy with glasses.

I have some issues though. Like, isn't time supposed to be constant thing?

So this was a surprising book. Just a little ebook I picked up on good. Amazing actually. Probably one of my favs.

I enjoyed the first book, but I feel the plot in this book was a little bit rushed. But I enjoyed it nonetheless.

Very much enjoyed this conclusion to The Historian's duology. Seeing all the characters again was like coming back to school after a long summer and I was very excited to see what was going to happen after the cliffhanger of the last book.

There were definitely some parts that I thought could have used a little more explanation so that the reader didn't feel as lost as Kaia did, but it did aid in the big mystery. I even did a re-read of Return Once More before I read this one, and because of

I absolutely loved the first book and begged and pleaded and maybe even stalked the author to get her to write more. I had to have more of Kaia, Sarah, Oz, and the rest of the gang. The premise for this story was just so unique and it's so well written that I craved more. Plus, I had to find out what was happening!

I am really glad that Trisha Leigh decided to write a second book. I also really liked the ending and how she left it open for more stories should she decide to write more. This world

I hate that I could only give this one three stars. I absolutely adored the first one. I didn't hate this one, but I didn't love it either. The problem was that the book was just so slow. It took longer than I thought it would to read this one because it took me so incredibly long to get interested in it. The time travel was still interesting. I got tired of Sarah and Kaia's fighting. Sarah was upset with Kaia over something that wasn't even her fault and I don't even know why she was still with ...more

I bought this as soon as I heard it was out and loved that this was a two-part series as opposed to a trilogy. It wrapped things up a little quick at the end, but it was great to see how the characters from Return Once More - which I loved - finished their story without any needless side trips. As with the first novel I just adored all the trips into history and exploration of the nuances of time travel.

Thanks Trisha for writing this - the cliffhanger at the end of the first book almost killed
