Throughout time man has waged a war within himself as he strives for enlightenment while struggling with his humanity. Us-Yri, Mitra, and Halifax are all this man, and it takes all they are and all they long to be to fulfill their destiny.
For every man to achieve greatness, he must overcome adversity, and there is none so great as the desires of the flesh. Representing this desire are Set, Vayu, and Shaun, who lead their lovers on a journey of exquisite pleasure and unbearable torment.
Since the beginning, man has always wanted more, and when it is given in copious quantities the outcome is usually disastrous. Us-Yri, Mitra, and even Halifax burn with desire for men they should not want, to the point where all else is neglected. Set and Vayu play upon this need, only to find their hearts as traitorous as their actions. Only Shaun has the whole story, but even he is tempted. Will these men find balance in their hearts and souls, or are they forever doomed to repeat mistakes of the past?
With an open heart and mind, this story can send a message much greater than the sum of its parts. Equality and balance is imperative to a healthy life, but even more so for spiritual well being, and what you read here really brings that truth home. Yes, this is an erotic tale of men loving men, but that is what makes their story so much more intriguing. Their love and desire for each other is unconventional and all consuming, affronting societal and spiritual beliefs, but it is that struggle that allows them to transcend beyond their human boundaries.
