Echo in Time (Echo Trilogy #1) by Lindsey Fairleigh

Their love is destined to shatter the boundaries of time…

Archaeology grad student Alexandra Larson’s world is turned upside down when her mother shares her deepest, darkest secret—that she doesn’t know the true identity of Lex’s father. The revelation sparks a change within Lex, and her dreams become far too real. She sees things she shouldn’t be able to see…knows things she couldn’t possibly know. Terrifying things. Deadly things.

Echo in Time was a fun read for me. I was excited to read this and could not put it down. I have always loved time travel, historical, and mythological stories. This one had all three plus a love story. 

 Ancient Egypt has always been a favorite. With this story, I believe the mix of archeology/mythology and romance blended nicely. The best thing is the characters explain enough of the Egyptian lore for those who are not familiar with Egypt. They can understand what the characters are talking about without being dropped with too much information to over barren them and slow down the story. The author sprinkled the information throughout the story well. The way the author does the time travel feels like the way George R. R. Martin did on Game of Thrones for the three-eye raven.  

Lex Larson felt realistic. Her reactions to information she receives throughout the story felt credible. I have read stories where characters are okay with what they received and jumps right in. I dislike those kinds of characters. What will work for me on those is if the personality matches the character. With Lex, the confusion, frustration, and working things out in her head felt true to her. 

Marcus Bahur was an interesting character. The conflict of who he is and how he feels for Lex was something I enjoyed reading. He is a protector. He will protect those he cares about and those they assign him to guard. The bantering he did with Lex was cute. Marcus’s secretive demeanor matches his character and personality well.

I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading the rest in this trilogy. I recommend this book to those who love a Game of Thrones Three Eye Raven time warp feel and Ancient Egypt.

I give this book a 5/5

Rating: 5 out of 5.
