Spying on Gods by David G. Barnett (Audiobook)



A drunken, naked frenzy leads to a nightmare summoned to earth. A nightmare not meant to be witnessed by human eyes. Because if it is, the village will pay–and pay it does.

But the road to redemption leads them straight into the mouth of a hellish realm and the arms of an ancient god–benevolent until its rules are broken.

"I was completely enchanted by Barnett’s astonishingly inventive concept. Spying on Gods is unlike anything I can recall ever reading. Ingenuity goes a long way in my mind, and Barnett delivers in spades."
