Summary 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.

My Thoughts:

I don’t read a lot of time travel books, but I’m glad I picked this one up. This was one of those books where you thought you knew what was happening, but then there was a twist or a turn. I loved that I didn’t know where the book was going; it kept me intrigued and made me want to read as much as I could.

I found it interesting that 17 years old you could find your one true love. It was also interesting that this one true love wasn’t only attainable. I couldn’t imagine finding out who my sole mate is only to find out he passed away years before.

I’m not a history fan by any means, but this book didn’t bore me with all of the historian references and going back in time. It actually was very interesting!

I am very glad I had a chance to read this book!
