Back Cover Blurb:

Her mother imprisoned by a murderous Egyptian cult.
An ancient instrument with powers to ensnare her teenage soul forever.
A handsome warrior who trusts her with his life and who she must betray.

Piper Akins hates working with brainy Soul Warrior Math to find the ancient trumpet of peace. She was chosen for the search because Piper doesn’t slip into unconsciousness when the trumpet is played—a connection from an unknown, but powerful father.

Math was chosen for the quest because of his brilliance, but he wants to prove to his warrior brothers that he’s strong and more than just a brain. When Piper tricks him, he realizes he’s failed at both.

As they pursue their mission, Math helps Piper discover her hereditary magic and teaches her to use the powers. She finds her true self and is drawn to him as they create their own kind of magic. Until Piper is ordered to betray Math to save her dying mother.

My Review:

Burton takes readers back into her world of mystery and mythology with a wildly creative and one of a kind story and I loved each and every moment of it. Her seamless storytelling combines with her larger than life descriptions to create a fantastic whole. This is one of those rare novels that will be loved by teens and adults alike.

Characters in this novel are age appropriate, yet also appealing to older readers. They engaged my imagination and my intellect. I enjoyed getting to know each one of them as individuals and in their interactions with one another. Their interactions with one another were so real and welcoming, yet added greatly to the intricate plot of this tale.

What a wildly imaginative and one of a kind novel! Burton definitely kicks her series up a notch with this fast paced novel that held me captive. I loved each and every moment of it.
