The Novel - Toy of the Gods

When a recently awakened Inca god strands a group of tourists in the Amazon, a reluctant former adventurer 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 to exploit the land, a banana plantation owner who has a secret that he’ll do anything to keep, and even drunken monkeys—all while hoping the god doesn’t want any more from them.

Here's my video I made when the book was in presales.
