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?

Tut's Trumpet: Soul Warriors Book 2My Review
Tut's Trumpet by Allie Burton

A gifted musician, Aria was always being driven from one event to another, until that fateful trip that killed her parents and turned her heart from the beauty and joy of her music. With only her grandfather left, she moves in with him and enters into a dark world of murder, music, curses and dangerous addictions. After a mysterious meeting involving an ancient trumpet, purported to have belonged to King Tut and having been warned NOT to touch it, (hello, wave a red flag in the face of a teen, here), Aria figures her grandfather will never know. Upon touching the trumpet, Aria’s world is changed forever, from her very first note. Now being chased by two different factions and having her grandfather kidnapped, Aria is forced to rely on an ancient being from the past, who once was also cursed by the Trumpet of War. There are two trumpets, one evil and one good, and their powers are dangerous. Aria finds she is changing as she becomes enthralled by the call of the trumpet, will she forever be its victim, angry and lost or will she find the strength in love, commitment and the determination to find her only living relative? How can she have feelings for a man sworn to destroy her and steal the trumpet? Chaos, curses, kidnapping and crushes…and Aria stuck in the middle…

Tut’s Trumpet by Allie Burton is spellbinding, dark and furious as the chaos is unleashed and felt throughout! This concert of words will hit both high and low notes with the subtle nuisances fueled by Allie Burton as composer and conductor as she masterfully guides us at a rapid-fire pace into another world. Aria is 100% teen, with that touch of attitude and that feeling of invincibility of youth. When push comes to shove, and only then, does Aria relent and allow someone far older and wiser take the reins, but don’t expect her to go quietly! Fascinating reading with touches of myth, history, legends and more! Did I mention the magic of romance?

I received this copy from Allie Burton in exchange for my honest review.
