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 be free from their grasp.

Aya stops by today to talk about regrets. I have to say his regrets are a little bit heartbreaking but at the same time, so deep. Read and enjoy!
I have a lot of regrets, so this is a hard question. At first I thought my biggest regret was that I didn’t listen to my mother. I imagined that if I had listened to her, I would have never been claimed by Seth and never inducted into the Order.
As a dream god I’m able to dream walk in the present or past. No one can see me except for powerful spirits and gods. Due to the danger this posed, my mother wouldn’t let me leave the house until I turned seventeen. She told me if a spirit saw me in the flesh, he may recognize me for who I was and bring harm to me. She also warned against intentionally making myself visible in a dream. However, I was young and impatient. I was curious about the gods and had a crush on a dangerous deity. I went out on a dream walk with the intention of laying eyes on a sinister god named Seth. I never imagined that Seth would see me in the dream and make me his prisoner.
Despite regretting this incident, I realize that I most likely would have been inducted into the Order whether I met Seth or not. So my biggest regret is betraying the one god that I desired more than anything. Due to my moment of weakness, Marduk suffered unimaginably. If I could take back anything it would be that moment when I cared about saving myself more than the god I loved.
