Echo Prophecy Excerpt: Prologue

“Meswett, know yourself and you shall know the gods.

Meswett, trust yourself and you shall trust the gods.
So it ends, from start to finish,
as found in writing.”

—taken from the Prophecy of Nuin, Old Kingdom, c. 2180 BCE

I thought I knew people. I didn’t.

I thought I could trust my family and my friends. I couldn’t.

I thought I at least had some idea of who I am. Wrong.

But here’s the real kicker: I never thought I’d be in the heart of an ancient temple, driven by desperation and hatred, ready to kill my own father.

Screaming, I launch myself at him. My rage and sorrow are so great that I no longer have room for any other emotions. Coherent thought is foreign to me. I have one purpose—to destroy him.

He doesn’t see me coming. He can’t see me coming. I’m moving too quickly, bending time to my will. It’s impossible, but that doesn’t make it any less real.


My father doesn’t have time to finish the question. I’ve already torn the gun from his grasp and pressed the muzzle against the side of his head.

I flex my index finger.

COVER REVEAL: Echo Prophecy

Steeped in ancient Egyptian mythology, Echo Prophecy, the first book of the Echo Trilogy, is a story of discovery, of an ancient, hidden past, and above all else, of a love that transcends the boundaries of time.

Here's Echo Prophecy's shiny new cover (special thanks to Scarlett Rugers, my amazing cover designer!):

“…we only see what we want to see…what we expect to see…"

A prophecy that has dictated the course of history for four millennia.
A mysterious power hidden in an Egyptian temple.
A love foretold by a dying god.

Millennia-old, god-inspiring Heru is doing his damndest to avert catastrophe for his people, the Netjer-At, mythic gods of time. Over four thousand years have passed since he heard his grandfather utter his final words—his prophecy. Heru has spent most of his long life doing whatever he can to circumvent the prophecy—searching, recruiting…killing. Now, as prophesied events draw inescapably near, only one woman can save his people…or destroy them.

Alexandra Larson, an ambitious and independent archaeology grad student, has a knack for deciphering ancient texts and a penchant for giving new life to long-forgotten secrets. When her mom visits her in Seattle and divulges a secret of her own, Lex spirals into an epic identity crisis. When her dreams begin revealing things about the past she couldn’t possibly know, she fears for her sanity. And when the future bleeds into her dreams, she fears for her life.

Meanwhile, the excavation of a lifetime is fast approaching, and the alluring excavation director, Marcus Bahur, seems to have eyes only for Lex. He also seems to have an overabundance of secrets. Fortunately for Lex, uncovering secrets is her specialty.

Echo Prophecy is a historical mystery/paranormal romance novel for adult readers.
***Contains adult content.***
