Her grandfather kidnapped.
An ancient instrument of death in her hands.
A warrior from the past determined to stop her.
When sixteen-year-old Aria York loses her parents, she thinks nothing worse can happen. But then her grandfather is kidnapped by a mysterious Egyptian sect and she is being hunted by two competing tribes. Both want King Tut’s trumpet of war and will lie and steal to obtain the legendary instrument.
When Aria plays the magical trumpet she forgets her grief. Instead, she feels triumph and greed and anger flow through her veins, and chaos erupts in San Francisco. She wants nothing more than to rescue her grandfather, but finds herself trusting a tortured warrior who insists she hand over the trumpet or risk enveloping the world in war.
Aria wants to believe him, but knows there’s something even bigger at stake. As each precious hour passes, she’s forced to ask: Is she playing the trumpet or is the trumpet playing her?
Shocked by her family’s plans to wed her to a stranger, sixteen-year-old Princess Adria must decide whether to flee the underwater Kingdom of Merta or fight to keep her rightful place. When Kai, the criminal she’d rescued informs her of a plot to kidnap her future sister-in-law, Adria decides to take action to prove her loyalty.
Sparks flew between her and Kai when they met during a hurricane misadventure, but she can’t trust her judgment about him. Especially when Kai won’t help her stop the kidnapping because he’s on his own secret mission. A mission that he refuses to divulge.
In a case of mistaken identity, Adria is kidnapped and whisked away to a mysterious glacial underwater world of ice and evil where she learns that everything isn’t rainbow fish and roses, that there are Atlanteans who suffer and slave, and that being cold isn’t a state of body, but a state of mind.
With Kai as her prison guard, the two teens grow closer, and Adria must choose between loyalty to her kingdom or her dreams.
Stands Alone: Yes
Brought up to believe she is a rightful heir of Atlantis and the destructive Seer of legend, Sky plots to destroy the society that rejected her. On a spy mission, she plans to use a human close to the Atlantean princesses to learn more about her intended targets. Instead, Sky saves the air-breather and exposes her own special powers.
Reef is on an undercover mission of his own. Pretending to work with the Separatists, he’s trying to determine which side of the Atlantean war deserves the support of his people. Reef is from the Kingdom of Merta in the Atlantic Ocean, an entire kingdom the Atlanteans didn’t know existed. Their support could help turn the tide of the war, but only if Reef’s people choose their side wisely.
The two teens work together to uncover the battle tactics of both the Separatists and Royalists. But as their time together leads to love, Sky’s forced to rethink her view on everything. When her mission morphs from spying to murder, she doesn’t want Reef to know he’s partnered with a killer. But Reef has secrets of his own…
