Amy and Dan head for China without a firm plan; however, their in-flight movie provides them with a clue, leading them to the Forbidden City. While in the city, they hear about the last emperor, who perks their interest. Dan decides to search for the movie clue while Amy creates a distraction.

After they're asked to leave the city, the siblings launch into a huge argument. Amy can't help but wonder what their family lines really mean and if their parents were the people from her memories. Dan can't believe his sister is questioning their parents' goodness. He takes off fuming, hoping to cool down.

Instead, he's kidnapped. He meets up with Jonas Wizard, who takes him under his wing, assuring him that he will help Dan find his sister. He also shows his young cousin the finer ways of life and they team up to search for clues. Is Jonas actually interested in Dan, or this another family member using him to find the clues?

Meanwhile, Amy and Nellie search everywhere for Dan but to no avail. They decide to keep searching for the clues in an effort to eventually meet up with him again. Will the siblings be separated while discovering the next clues, or will something happen to bring them back together?

With only two more books in the series to go, I can't wait for the conclusion of this thrilling action-orientated series. I love the danger, the clues, the puzzles, and the history behind each of the books.
