The first book in an imaginative new paranormal romance/historical mystery trilogy.
"...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.

"*What a superb novel! Lex is a strong female lead who does not give an inch to her deliciously seductive, alpha male lover, Marcus. They do not immediately jump into bed, and the slow build of sexual tension is sensual, steamy, and all the more satisfying for the anticipation."
"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 who are looking to break out of the normal vampire, werewolves, ghost and ghoul reads that are currently flooding their bookshelves."
--Eryn Bagley, PureTextuality.com
"I was just blown away by the way she incorporated the Egyptian mythology into the story and used it to create a believable explanation for the Egyptian gods...Even if you aren't the biggest ancient Egyptian fan, I highly recommend Echo Prophecy. It's a well-written, fast-paced novel with just enough romantic tension to keep the slow parts interesting."
--Carrie Slager, The Mad Reviewer
