Is it sin, or is it love? When is it a sin to truly love? Dorian seeks to rid himself of sin, to purify his soul, so his deeply held secrets will bother him no longer, leaving him free to pursue a socially acceptable life and marriage. But is it even possible? His only hope is to leave the world of the living and walk the Path of Redemption, hoping to survive Perdition and pass through to Veritas. But his closest friend, Osval, refuses to let him undertake the transformative journey on his own. Despite Dorian's protests, Osval holds firm, and the two young men set off together on a journey to begin life anew.

Sobre el autor

"Marie Brown has lived in many locations across the United States, but spends most of her time exploring the realms of imagination. Currently located in Colorado, her brief moments of free time are spent in front of her computer, frequently covered in cats."Blah.Yeah, okay, that's all true. But I'm tired of hiding behind a bland, third-person pseudo-bio, utterly lacking in personality.Hi! I'm Marie Brown, and I write a lot. I self-publish through Smashwords and Amazon because I got tired of getting "well-written, but not our thing" rejection letters. Because, you see, most of my fiction tends to include characters that are either bi or just plain homosexual, and despite increasing acceptance of human sexuality and its many variations across the world, heroes and heroines are still supposed to be straight.Well, mine aren't. So if you're brave, and you don't mind that the main character of a story either isn't interested in sex at all, or is quite likely to hop in bed with someone of the same gender, then give my writings a chance. Come explore my fantasy worlds, or my science fiction worlds, or even spend some time with an occasional random love story set on Earth.And by the way, just this once, I wrote this entire blurb without a cat on my keyboard.

An Unpleasant Evening

You should have attended the Purification with me, Leola said, fluttering her lashes coyly as Dorian lead her from the dance floor.

I believe your father and brothers provided suitable chaperones, Dorian responded, not looking at his companion.

Yes, of course, but it would have been better if you had attended as well.

We discussed this before, many times, Dorian said, keeping his tone polite and noncommittal. You know I had too much to do at work to leave for any length of time. I trust you enjoyed yourself?

Oh, yes! Leola sighed dreamily. It was wonderful. I've never had the opportunity to actually watch as someone's soul was cleansed and purified of sin. I could actually see the sin as it left, thick oily clouds of it.

That wasn't sin, it was smoke, Dorian snapped, disgust getting the better of discretion. He shook Leola's hand off his arm and stepped away from her. From a man burning alive.

Of course it was sin! I know he was burning, of course, it is the only way to purify such vile and disgusting sin and make a soul fit to enter into Veritas. What is wrong with you, dear? You sound as if you'd rather that poor man went straight to Perdition, rather than his reward.

I can't help but think of how he felt, that's all, Dorian said, running his hand through his hair as his guts roiled. Standing there in front of cheering folk, tied hand and foot to a stake, as the flames crept closer and began to burn, with all the gathered crowd just waiting for his screams to begin. . . The Purifications sicken me.

You shock me, sir! Leola's eyes widened, and she stepped back a pace. People in the crowd around them began paying closer attention to the altercation in their midst.

"Have you no compassion? That was a man, I'm telling you, of flesh, and bone, and intellect. Would you wish to feel the flames eating at your body?"

Leola sniffed, tossing her hair. "If I were to become a vile pervert, of course I would want to be Purified. It is, after all, the only way to enter into Veritas. What is wrong with you, Dorian?"

Dorian glanced at their avid audience and sighed. Some battles just didn't warrant the cost of fighting. Nothing is wrong, my dear, he said, feeling the lie like molten lead eating his tongue. "I am just a touch out of sorts this evening. Please excuse me. I feel the need for
