Molly Reviews: Blood of the Sphinx by J. Johanis (Virgin Kings Book 1)

Enter Sasha’s dark world where half-naked warriors fight in the arena for sexual dominance.

Son of Cleopatra and Julius Caesar, Sasha is the king of kings. He’s the pharaoh, and he’s supposed to be the most powerful man in Egypt, but he’s convinced there’s something wrong with him. Maybe he’s in heat or maybe he’s just cursed, but no pharaoh should have such an insatiable need to be mated by another man. Even worse, the man he desires has never shown an inkling of interest in him.

When the young pharaoh finds himself the sole ruler of Egypt and under siege by the Romans, he has to find a way to deal with the desires consuming him or all will be lost.

*Historically inspired dark erotica. Contains graphic violence and non-con.

Where To Buy:

If you’re not into stories with dubious consent and non con, give this one a pass. But if that’s your thing, you should pick this one up for sure! This book was so sensual and exciting. I loved being transported to ancient Egypt and a slightly mythical version of it. Ms. Johanis set up the world and the time period quickly and I was immersed from the beginning. It was fascinating seeing Sasha and Adrian as they grew together over the course of the story. The scenes where Sasha had someone forcing themselves on him but he was enjoying it because of the changes happening had my heart pounding. But oh my gosh when he was finally with Adrian? My Kindle burst into flames. There was also lots of emotion coming from both Sasha and Adrian before they got together. I loved when they could finally be together though. You could feel their contentment. I enjoyed the historical elements in the story and how closely to facts it could be. You can tell Ms. Johanis did her research and knows the history. I was worried Sasha and Adrian weren’t going to get together as I read. The scene where Sasha handles the Romans was so good. I would love to know more about how he and Adrian handle the future and how Sasha’s changes effect his reign. But seriously, I can’t wait for more of this series to come out!
