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.
Content Advisory: Graphic violence, abuse, & dub-con.



Marduk, Akad, and Aya, are back in book 2 of this series and Dream God takes place immediately following Claimed by the Order.  Marduk and Aya must face the Council in trial against The Order after strong allegations are made. Naturally, nothing is cut and dry when J. Johanis is writing a book. There is serious miscommunication, betrayal, serious violations, and absolute heartbreak. My heart shattered for Aya a few times in this story. Not only is he forced to face his accusers, NOT get out unscathed in the least, he has to watch two loves fall in love. UHG! Kill me now with the all this pain. I won’t tell you the turn out but I will say I couldn’t put it down and J. Johanis does karma REALLY well!!! This has been a very dark, sinister, rough, depraved series so far and I have no doubt book 3 will takes us back to the darkness. Back to the horror, and yet, it will mend us nicely.

 Be sure to check out book 1 in this series: Claimed by the Order

He failed to save himself. Is he strong enough to save his lover?

Young and eager to join the social playground of the gods, Marduk enters his first day of college at the exotic mountain retreat at the Temple of Power. But he swiftly falls into the clutches of a secret order. Confronted by the powerful gods who wish to claim him, Marduk is defenseless. His only way out: to lure another virgin god into the Order.

Content Advisory: m/m sex, graphic violence, non-con, & abuse. Intended for mature readers.

Right off the bat the author gives you trigger warnings. As a matter of fact she warns you on all the sites you can purchase this book AND she even warns you again before you actually start the story. So, if you proceed after all that then you really can’t complain about the brutality of this book. And it is brutal. Without giving much away, it’s about a group called The Order which is filled with Gods. These Gods take a pet and well, this pet pretty much suffers until a new pet takes his spot and he or she becomes a member of The Order as well. That’s it in a nutshell. Currently, Marduk is the flavor of the month and it’s ugly. It’s horrific what he goes through. Betrayed by a friend. He is thoroughly violated. But he also falls in love and as they say, all you need is love. This is a dark erotic fantasy. A sexual story deviant in nature. It is also extremely well written. Though not for everyone J. Johanis does an outstanding job bringing you into the terrifying, thrilling, and erotic world. Her descriptions are so detailed and it’s got quite an ensemble. Not once did I find myself confused.
Dark as this is. Violent as this is. It is also an amazing story.
