Lepidoptera by Doug Hauger is an epic and philosophical masterpiece that spans 2,000 years of human history. It is the story of two esteemed guardians that exist in an immortal world of love and hate, war and peace ...life and death.
Hieronymous, a centurion in the Roman Armies of Caesar, fights against the barbarian hordes of Gaul and becomes a decorated hero. But a bloody raid against the Morini tribe causes him to question his own morality. Hieronymous dies in the war and crosses over to the Lepidoptera and becomes a guardian in the Void. Maya, his guide and maker, teaches him why they exist in this desolate place. Hieronymous will face many battles and learn many lessons while struggling to overcome his own self-doubts and confront horrors that threaten to condemn him to hell. Can he escape the bounds that put him into purgatory? What secret is Maya holding that can be her and Hieronymous salvation?
Hauger takes the reader on a historical and surreal journey-from the Roman battlegrounds of 54 BC, to the crucifixion of Christ, 3rd century China, numerous wars and historical events in the 20th century. Brilliantly written and seen through the eyes of those existing in purgatory, Lepidoptera is a spellbinding tale that explores how our choices can make the difference between heaven and hell.
