Tears of the Goddess (The Goddess Series, #1) by R.M. Prioleau
Celestra, Goddess of Beauty, aspires to leave her home of Siyr, the god-realm, to travel the cosmos and create a new world of her own. But her dreams cannot be fulfilled unless she is one of the seven chosen to undergo a trial put forth by the Genesis Spirit—a trial in which she alone must nourish a Genesis Seed with tears from her heart.
Tydus, God of Chaos, is renowned and adored by many in Siyr, but his heart has always yearned for only one—Celestra. Unlike most Siyran goddesses, Celestra is unyielding and determined, but Tydus’s attempts to win her heart go unnoticed as she keeps her attention focused on her trial.
This fanciful tale of romance and determination tells the story of two lovers who strive for happiness and realize how much they need one another
For a very short story this was very well rounded with an instant draw to the characters. It's very romantic in a fairytale way. The danger they face together and love for each other was touching and cute.
A very strong lead female character, determined but also a softer side. Although a very short story (only took about an hour to read through) the characters and world are well developed and detailed.
There is some sexual scenes, but very light and non-graphic. A very fun and quick read.
