For the first time in three years, Aya is finally free, but with his freedom comes the pain of all he’s lost. Seeing Akad and Marduk together makes him realize how badly he has messed up. By betraying Marduk, he ruined his chance with the one god he desires more than anything.
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.

I really liked this book very much. Since the previous book i wanted to know more about Aya, so this was perfect for me. I think Aya was an amazing character, it was very interesting, his emotions were so well transmited that i couldn’t help to feel bad for all he thing he was going throu. It was so interesting, i couldn’t put it down, it keep my attention all the time.
It was hard for me, not to compare it with the previous book, and i notice that the things i didn’t liked from it weren’t present on this one.
I think the development the character had was very good. Akad, who was one of my favourites, was a bit diferent from what i remember, but he kept his charm and he was now a stronger character, with much more ability to fight for the things he believe in. One of the things i used to love of him was his intereaction with his father and that was very minimun on this book, but still enjoyable the few moments they had together.
About Marduk, i think this character had so much improvement that all the dislike i had for him was gone. I found his emotions much more believable and i got to care as much for him as for the other characters.
It was a great book, a realy good plot, but maybe not to everyone since had some very violent elements that might not be suitable to all readers, but having read the warnings, i’ll definetly woul’d recomend this book to anyone who might like dark theme stories.
Definetly i’ll keep my eyes on the author.
