Lost City of Gold - new archaeology adventure story by Rai Aren

Hi there,

I wanted to share my latest fun archaeology adventure work with you. It's a short novel called Lost City of Gold and it's the first story in my new Ancient Quest Mystery series. Here's a little more about the story:

A dangerous adventure beckons deep in the Amazon jungle…

Reckless treasure-hunter Rick Braeden sets out into the uncharted reaches of the Amazon jungle in a dangerous search of the fabled Lost City of Gold. It’s a quest for an ancient city shrouded in mystery that he believes will place him in the history books and bring him all of the riches and redemption that have eluded him. He also hopes to succeed where more than one hundred others, who were either lost or died in the attempt, have failed. As he embarks on his journey something or someone deep in the jungle waits and watches…

Here's the link on Amazon:


Lost City of Gold on Amazon




I hope you'll check it out! If you enjoy the story, I'd welcome a review. Feel free to drop me a line at rai-tavius@secretofthesands.com as well if you'd like to share your feedback. This is my first short work (it's approx. 25,000 words in length), and I had an absolute ball writing it. This story was a lot of fun for me :) I'm excited to pen some more!

Happy reading always!
