Of course, their old adversary Dr. Khalid is close behind as the kids press on in search of the lost city of stone gods. But he is not the worst of their problems. This time Adam will clash with a terrible enemy who adopts the persona of an evil Aztec god, Tezcatlipoca, and is keen to revive the ancient tradition of human sacrifice. Adam, Justin, and Tukum must play a dreadful ball game of life and death and maybe survive. Will they emerge alive from the jungle? Will Dr. Khalid find the third Stone of Power before they do?
Kim let out a piercing scream as a small group of about ten people materialized out of the bushes. They must have been there all the time. Adam was amazed at how they had blended in with the environment. The tribesmen were not much taller than Justin, but they were muscular and looked strong. They wore loincloths and carried spears. Some carried bows. Black paint was daubed across their eye sockets, forming a mask. Tattoos and strange ritual scars ornamented their light-brown skin. Some wore armbands, and decorations around their ankles; a few wore elaborate necklaces of wooden beads. Thick plugs went through most of their earlobes. They all had longish black hair, cut so that the fringes came down to the top of their paint masks. Their dark eyes glittered as they stared back at the trio.
