As priests, we are meant to obey, but our duties are to our gods—not mere men.
Zeal is back, and he’s seen by more people every day. The God of Temptation grows stronger, but High Priest Kinen has found the one thing that can stop a god: disbelief. The return of our gods means an end to his power, and Kinen isn’t ready to lose.
Over time, the priests of our temple have surrendered their power in the name of our god. We’re trained to obey, to help, and to be Zeal’s tools when he cannot help himself. Now, that has become a problem.
Power is given, never taken, and we have surrendered far too much. It’s time for things to change, before our complacency destroys our gods. And yet, habits are such hard things to break.
What we need is a rebellion…and I’m going to start it.
Our gods never expected blind obedience, so it’s time to give into the temptation to fight back. But will the price for this be more than I can pay? I just can’t believe this is what my path was meant for, or is this all just a game between gods and men? Because we, the Priests of Temptation, have been betrayed.
I have prayed.
I have obeyed.
Now I’m doing it my way.

A student of Meisner method acting and obsessed with books, film, music, and art, Aaron came to the world of audiobooks not only as a gifted actor, but as an avid fan, chasing after his favorite narrators’ latest work with voracious enthusiasm. In addition to narrating over 300 audiobooks under various names, Aaron can be been heard in podcasts, radio dramas, animations, video games, commercials, and infomercials all around the world. Known for his deep voice, dynamic versatility, extensive use of dialects and accents, and submersing himself fully into his characters and stories, he brings a wonderfully unique, emotional, and engaging experience to his listeners. He’s a fan favorite across multiple genres and can often be found interacting and enjoying their company as a prominent streamer in the Twitch community, playing music, sipping great coffee, or just rolling around on the floor with his pups.
