One drop cures the common cold. A drink cures cancer and other terminal diseases. And, submerging yourself in its water brings immortality. Or it could get you killed.

  John Profit needs to find some answers about his father's mysterious death. Traveling to Antarctica in search of closure, he meets Cara Criest, the strong-willed, clever scientist determined to challenge his beliefs.
  
  Through wit and courage, they soon discover the archeological find of the century--The Tomb of Hercules. Perilous trials lurk within the tomb, but also an artifact that unlocks more than just doors to hidden chambers. The quest begins.
  
  The unlikely pair set off on a twisted path, hunting a lost legend at all corners of the globe. Using John's extensive network of contacts, he and Cara move closer to unraveling an ancient secret. But, more is at play than they realize.
  
  The race is on and danger lurks at every turn! A shadow organization--Ascension--tracks their every move, waiting for an opportunity to take the prize they've risked their lives for. Time is running out... John and Cara must stay one step ahead or lose everything.

 To survive is not enough. For the one that grabs the prize, rules the world!
Join the chase now!

How did you do that font effect? I wanted to create a font out of gold foil but idk how.

Thanks! (and thank you for all the Votes!)  I did the cover in Adobe Illustrator.  Basically getting the gold nugget background then generating a clipping mask with the actual font, which was stock/generic.  Took a little time.
