When gods and goddesses abruptly overthrow Earth, humans are given two choices – worship or die. Desperate to survive, Olivia and her family devote their days to fulfilling the will of the gods. But the wrath of the gods is insatiable and unpredictable. With her hope crushed, Olivia is resigned to her bleak fate . . . until she meets Nature.


Immediately, Olivia knows this charismatic girl with color-changing eyes isn’t normal. Nature looks like a teenager yet she has the power to control the weather and converse with animals. Nature opens Olivia’s eyes to a hidden world that had always existed in harmony with her own. However, know-it-all butterflies and mystical creatures aren’t the only secrets revealed as Olivia discovers the dark plan of the gods.


When Nature decides to confront the gods, Olivia is catapulted to the forefront of humanity’s battle for survival. Faced with monster-infested pathways and ever-looming traps, Olivia must rely on her courage, strength, and newfound gifts. Nature and the world depend on it. But will it be enough?


The Nature of Gods is a fantasy adventure appropriate for tweens and middle grade readers.
