When sixteen-year-old Aria York loses her parents, she thinks nothing worse can happen. Then her grandfather is kidnapped by a mysterious Egyptian cult and she is being hunted by two competing sects. Both want King Tut’s trumpet of war and will kill to obtain the legendary instrument.

Aria wants to believe him, but knows there’s something even bigger at stake. A secret so powerful neither teen understands the implications. As each precious hour passes, she’s forced to ask: Is she playing the trumpet or is the trumpet playing her?

Book Review

Falcon is one of the Xanders who was reanimated in the first book of the series. It doesn't matter too much if you haven't read the first book in terms of following the story in this one. You can still understand what's happening all throughout, but it does give a nice sense of continuity if you read the first book.

Aria (like her musical name) is pulled by the power of the trumpet of war. As she plays the trumpet she forgets the real world and is sucked in to a place where only the trumpet's music and she exist. It's only when she quits playing that she realizes that she's inciting riots and worse by releasing the magic of the music.

Falcon was addicted to the trumpet in a previous life, and he doesn't want Aria to struggle like he did. He's trying to save her, despite herself, and they both have to fight the cult that is throwing temptation her way. Can they survive the chaos unleashed when Aria plays the trumpet of war?
OMG what a sequel! I'm still feeling the rush of riding on the top of the bus. Yes I would totally recommend this book and probably this whole series, I know I can't wait to read the next book.
