Episode 5: THE ASSUMPTION OF THE LAMB
Jake Jaxson's year-in-the-making erotic fantasy epic ANSWERED PRAYERS continues with THE ASSUMPTION OF THE LAMB, the second part of a two-part story centered on a mysterious orphan boy known only as the Lamb. The last time we saw the Lamb, he'd just been expelled from a strict boarding school for attempting to escape after being bullied by his cruel classmates Pain, Cain, and Vain. His benevolent yet frustrated guardian, Moloch, consequentially transfers the Lamb to the care of his father, Seth, Son of Snakes, and a new chapter begins.
Once under Seth's guidance, the Lamb begins to excel. Like others before him, he realizes he's being prepared for something much more. Yet the Lamb's fate is not in Seth's hands alone -- a much larger battle is being fought by Moloch and his brother Jinks, a fight that will soon also consume the Lamb.
Going from an orphan boy to a position of great power, the Lamb's greatest fears still linger beneath the surface dictating his every move. He is balancing on a thread of chance, and before he knows it, his vulnerability is exploited by his old classmates creating a imbalance of power that gives the Lamb untold and unexpected strength. With Seth standing in his way, the Lamb is eager to seduce, manipulate, and transform himself into anything (or anyone) to overcome and hide his greatest weaknesses.
Featuring career-making performances by Max Ryder, Max Carter, and the legendary Dean Monroe, with special appearances by Jake Bass, Duncan Black, Frankie Valentine, and Jasper Robinson, THE ASSUMPTION OF THE LAMB explores the responsibilities of power and the tremendous consequences of fear and their impact on self realized possibility.
Episode 6: THE REDEEMER
Jake Jaxson's erotic fantasy epic ANSWERED PRAYERS continues with the fifth installment of the series, The Redeemer. Picking up from where the titillating two-part The Lamb left off, The Redeemer is centered around a once-mortal boy experiencing life in between two deaths. We've seen Puck (Levi Karter) before as one of the Sons of Chaos, but now he has been summoned to inherit an ancient legacy he's unprepared to accept.
Puck embarks on a journey of self-discovery, not knowing, and ultimately possibility. Equipped with both independence and responsibility, Puck learns he has been chosen to replace his father Jinks (Jake Bass) as a guardian to the tree of knowledge. All the while the Lamb, having banished Seth and Moloch and killed Jinks, is still more powerful than ever. Puck must find the ability to confront him, but until then, he develops a special bond with Seth. Where Seth failed with the Lamb, Puck succeeds. They explore the bond they share, and discover that redemption can only be achieved through balanced reciprocity, the possibility in the unknown, and love without shared expectations.
Episode 7: THE ACTOR
Jake Jaxson's wildly erotic morality play ANSWERED PRAYERS comes to its grand conclusion in this final installment, The Actor. Equal parts mysterious, sexy, thought-provoking, and satisfying, the series introduces us to one final human archetype after the Banker, the Healer, the Bully, the Lamb, and the Redeemer for one thrilling finale.
The Actor (Tayte Hanson) is a struggling thespian dealing with the ups and downs of becoming a working actor when he inexplicably gets caught in the throes of an ancient family battle made worse by The Lamb (Levi Michaels), a once gifted orphan boy who saw the demise of both Jinks and Moloch. Now equipped with their otherworldly powers, he has escaped his first death and become and made flesh. However, The Lamb is aging rapidly with his powers limited to that of his aging body. While powerful, his mind is still provoked by fear and madness, and he finds his strength and comfort by provoking and consuming the fears of man. The Bully (Chris Harder) returns as one of his victims, himself filled with fear and shame as he faces continued upset for his hypocritical double life, and The Actor is set to be next. But not before Puck (Levi Karter), the son of Jinks, has a chance to stop him.
Using slick and subtle powers of his own, Puck connects to the better nature of The Actor while The Lamb seeks to harvest him for the all-consuming fear that lay beneath. However, The Lamb's confounding ways are unexpectedly tried and tested, and as a result, the balance of the light and the dark brings both an end and a new beginning.
