Book jacket summary
Amber and Trendon are on summer break, and life seems like it's finally back to normal. However, their vacation ends abruptly when a mysterious messenger summons them to Egypt. Dorothy and her team have found an ancient artifact, the final Weapon of Might, and they need Amber's connection with the Shomehr to recover it.
The mission goes smoothly -- until they obtain the artifact. Then everything goes wrong -- very wrong. Friends become enemies, and enemies become allies. Now Amber and Trendon must race against time before the Weapons of Might are united and the Finisher's Fury is unleashed.
This action-packed adventure from bestselling author Frank L. Cole promises entertainment, excitement, and enigma as it brings the Guardians series to an electrifying conclusion.
Silence settled in the room as I thought through my options. Who was I kidding? I needed to be back in the hunt to be truly happy. I could rest once we found the final artifact.
"Okay." I tucked the tickets back into the envelope. "I'll do it."
"You'll go to Egypt?" he asked, clapping his hands together.
"I'll go to Egypt."
I feel like I've been holding my breath since I started reading!
Frank has save the best for last in this exciting series. Amber and Trendon (who is still a favorite) are taken to Egypt to help Dorothy for the last time. Only, Dorothy doesn't really seem like herself. Even her appearance has changed. Her temper is always right on the surface and snaps at everyone. Right away there are snags in their journey to find that last artifact. Something happens to Dorothy, the Architects (bad guys) are closing in and Amber finds out some interesting things about her "gift" (having the ability to talk to the Shomehr). On old enemy makes an appearance and throw everyone and everything into more confusion. This awesome conclusion is action-packed with humor (lovingly from Trendon), mystery and lots of adventure.
4 out of 5 stars. Frank's Guardians series is one that I will enjoy over and over. My kids, I know, will enjoy this as much I did. I have loved all of Frank's books and very excited to read more from him. I am happy to say that Frank is a pal and when I read his books, I am reminded what a cool guy he is. Frank is also the author of the Hashbrown Winters series, which I also loved. And, his agent just sold his new series The Summoner's Handbook to Delacorte of Random House!
