Without hesitation, they request help from the one person they know that they can count on to find Taylor and bring him home to safety… Special Agent Gordy Googleberry. As Gordy scrambles intelligence, all clues lead him directly to the Yucatan Peninsula and to the legend of a cursed city rumored to be hidden deep in the Lacandon Jungle. The closer that Gordy gets to the Lost City of Demona the more danger he encounters. Even worse, Gordy quickly realizes that Agent Taylor is in the clutches of their crazed archenemy, the Chameleon. When Gordy finally breaks through the edge of the jungle, he stumbles into the middle of a diabolical plot involving an ancient relic and into an evil darkness much bigger than himself. Can Gordy save Agent Taylor in time? Can he stop the Chameleon from unleashing catastrophic evil in the world? Will he be willing to face his greatest fears and even risk his life for a friend? Is there anything powerful enough to break the curse? In The Lost City of Demona light clashes with darkness all leading up to a showdown of Biblical proportions… And in the center of it all is just an ordinary teenager learning how to unleash the power inside him.
