Aya needs time to heal and put his world back together, but the trial against the Order looms over him. As the trial begins, Akad, Marduk, and Aya are ensnared in a web of jealousy, backstabbing, and cut-throat politics. Were they crazy to think they could stand up to the Order? If the gods of the Order can still rip their lives apart, their chances of receiving justice may be next to impossible. But if they fail to bring the Order down, Aya may never truly be free.

Review: So, once I got this, I couldn't wait to read it. And I didn't really. The first book was amazing, and this book was just as amazing. I flew through it. So, I have a new love for Marduk. I have to sympathize with him. The guy can't catch a break. Even though he ends up with Akad, Akad is a supreme god and must take a wife. In addition to that, they're working to take down the order, which means they have to help Aya. A hitch is thrown in as they head to trial, in that the younger and weaker gods, i.e Marduk and Aya, can't resist the power of Siren, the head of the council and in order to move must have sex with another god. And of course the Order isn't willing to just lie down and take their punishment. Aya's past is revealed, and the reason he ends up connected to Seth originally. Aya is a dream god, and while he isn't all powerful, he does have significant power and finally starts using it. I absolutely must read the third book whenever it's out. I couldn't put it down
