Echo in Time (Echo Trilogy, #1)

by Lindsey Fairleigh

Their love is destined to shatter the boundaries of timeâ?¦

Archaeology grad student Alexandra Larson’s world is turned upside down when her mother shares her deepest, darkest secretâ??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 seeâ?¦knows things she couldn’t possibly know. Terrifying things. Deadly things.

To distract her from the surreal changes taking over her life, Lex leaps at the chance to join an Egyptian excavation run by Oxford’s enigmatic Professor Marcus Bahur. But the distraction might be more than she bargained for. While deciphering the secrets of a mysterious stone tablet, Lex falls headlong into a prophecy created by a dying god over four millennia ago. She must rely on her frightening new psychic powers to dig up the truth. And it doesn’t take long for her visions to convince her that both Professor Bahur and his excavation are much more than they seemâ?¦

The past clashes with the present in this paranormal tale of ancient prophecies and warring gods. If you like Egyptian mythology, steamy romance, and headstrong characters who won’t give up until they discover the truth, then you’ll love the first installment in author Lindsey Fairleigh’s sprawling time travel adventure.

Caught in Between (The In-Betweens Book 1)

by Alison L. Perry

She’s not like the othersâ?¦

Sixteen-year-old Sadie is a vampire who faints at the sight of blood, trips over her own feet, and can only, at best, be called cute.
As the imperfect middle child in a perfect vampire family, she struggles to fit into a world where she is different from everyone else.
Forced to follow her parents’ wishes by attending University, the local finishing school for graceful young vampires, she soon becomes the laughingstock of her oh-so-perfect class. But when the most popular boy on campus comes to her rescue and calls her “beautiful,” Sadie becomes the target of a group of mean girls who rule the school.
Plagued by a series of embarrassing failures, Sadie is kicked out of University and must face reality: she doesn’t belong with vampires. And when a mysterious elder vampire seeks her out with vague and cryptic conversation, she’s even more convinced that something is amiss.
With no other acceptable choice for her future, Sadie must convince her traditional vampire parents to let her do something unheard of for vampires her age. But questions continue to plague her. Is she truly a vampire? Or is she something else?



The Dragon’s Blade: The Reborn King

by Michael R. Miller

Arrogant. Scornful. Full of pride. Darnuir, Prince of Dragons, cares nothing for the damage he’s doing to the faltering alliance against the demonic forces of the Shadow. He thinks himself invincible – right up till a mortal wound forces him to undergo a dangerous rebirthing spell, leaving him a helpless babe in human hands.

Twenty years pass and demonic forces are once again poised to sweep across the land. With the alliance between humanity, dragons, and fairies fracturing, Darnuir will have to uncover the secrets of his past, seek redemption for his sins, and rally the disparate races if they are to survive.

Only Darnuir can do this. For he’s the last member of the royal bloodline and only he can wield the Dragon’s Blade…

His second chance is the world’s last hope.



The Dragon Who Didn’t Fly (A Dragon’s Guide to Destiny Book 1)

by C. M. Barrett

He Must Fly to Save His World

After naming Druid the Dragon of Destiny, his parents abandoned him in a swamp, and he bitterly vowed to never fly again.

Now his destiny is looking a lot like death. Malvern Frost, a cunning and malicious opportunist, wants to destroy the swamp and turn it into real estate. Only the dragon’s presence prevents him from realizing his dream of wealth and power.

Exploiting a centuries-old fear of the allegedly vicious creature few have seen, the would-be tycoon tries to ignite the humans’ terror into murderous rage. Enthusiasm for killing the dragon builds, and Frost realizes that with his rising popularity, he could topple the current government and establish himself as dictator.

Druid needs allies, but those he meetsâ??a kitten who hasn’t learned diplomacy and a young woman who’s afraid to reveal her psychic giftsâ??don’t know how to save him from death and the nation from tyranny. They must overcome communication difficulties, mutual mistrust, and delusions of human superiority before it’s too late. And Druid must abandon his vow and fly.

Who will like this book and this series?

Anyone who:

  • loves animals, especially if you are owned by a cat.
  • Wants to be able to stop reading for the night without the fear that a crazed killer is hiding beneath the bed.
  • Doesn’t want beloved characters killed off except for very good reasons.
  • Likes books with humor.
  • Can happily read a book without a single sword fight, epic battle, or buckets of blood.
  • Likes characters who are ordinary beings learning that the magic of love can make them heroic.

What makes the Dragon’s Guide to Destiny series special?

I wanted to write the kinds of books that I like to read. My childhood love for mythology turned into a love for fantasy fiction. I particularly enjoy reading and writing those stories that transplant the essential human issues to other worlds, thus giving us a different way to view them.

In The Dragon Who Didn’t Fly, people believe that the dragon is a rabid killer who hungers for human flesh. They think he breathes fire, a misconception that creates a near-fatal misunderstanding. In truth, he’s a peaceful, water-breathing dragon who puts out fires.

When I recently re-read The Dragon Who Didn’t Fly, I was surprised that some of the subplots seemed to foreshadow the present. Where did this unscrupulous but crafty real estate mogul and would-be dictator come from? One reviewer called the book a cautionary tale. This was perhaps truer than he knew.

It didn’t take any psychic ability to write about the condition of the environment and nature and the need to recognize that we humans share the planet with other species whose right to thrive is as great as ours. I do not get heavy-handed about this, though. I’m as tired of lectures as you probably are. I want the books I read to entertain me and have humorous elements. The same is true of the fantasies I write. I want to enjoy writing them and for you to enjoy reading them. Inspiration is optional.

In what order should the books be read?
