Toy of the Gods

Toy of the Gods


When an Inca god strands a group of tourists in the Amazon, former adventurer Leslie Kicklighter must lead the group of tourists to safety, or face the ultimate consequences.

They’ll have to get past armed bandits hired to kill them, angry villagers who think they are out for their land, a banana plantation owner with a secret to keep and even drunken monkeys — all while hoping the god doesn’t want any more from them.

Toy Of The Gods is a novel of one woman’s heroism, and how a group of strangers band together and attempt to survive an impossible journey with plenty of action, sex, thrills, and fun.
