“…we only see what we want to see…what we expect to see…”
Discover what’s hidden–a powerful, mythic race, an ancient Egyptian prophecy, and a love strong enough to shatter the boundaries of time.
Alexandra Larson isn’t human…but she doesn’t know that. As far as Lex is concerned, she’s simply an ambitious and independent archaeology grad student with a knack for deciphering ancient languages, especially the various forms of Egyptian. When she’s recruited to work on her dream excavation, her translating skills uncover the secret entrance to an underground Egyptian temple concealed within Djeser-Djeseru–the famous mortuary temple of Queen Hatchepsut. Lex is beyond thrilled by her discovery…as is the enigmatic and alluring excavation director, Marcus Bahur.
As the relationship between Lex and Marcus heats up, a series of shocking revelations leave the young archaeologist reeling. Once Lex discovers the truth of her ancient Egyptian roots–the truth of her more-than-human nature–the people she trusts most make one final, terrifying revelation: Lex is the central figure of a four-thousand-year-old prophecy. She is the only thing standing between the power to alter the very fabric of time and an evil megalomaniac…who also happens to be her father. As events set in motion over four millennia ago lead Lex and Marcus from Seattle to the heart of Egypt, the fate of mankind depends on one thing: the strength of Lex’s love.
Echo Prophecy offers a new twist on ancient Egyptian mythology that effortlessly captures the reader. The more I read, the more I did not want to put my tablet down. Pulling from the Egyptian myth surrounding the gods Horus and Seth, Lindsey Fairleigh has articulated a tale as old as time, while masterfully assimilating a modern twist into the pages of Echo Prophecy. A must read for those that who are looking to break out of the normal vampire, werewolves, ghost and ghoul reads that are currently flooding their bookshelves.
Puretextuality readers are sure to devour the pages of this book. Lindsey Fairleigh has her own style of writing that shows a deep knowledge of Egyptology while keeping the tone fresh and light, much like the personality of the tale’s heroine, Alexandra Larson. I highly recommend taking a moment to pick up Echo Prophecy, though I do warn, you might not be able to put it down.
A big thank you to Net Galley for allowing me to review this book.
