This was the most beautifully written fairytale. It was incredibly sweet and it had the most fascinating characters.
Prince Efrosin has been cursed with the inability to keep his feet on the ground. He is also unable to experience deep feelings, he just laughs at anything that evokes any kind of emotion. One day he finds himself free of his tie to earth and he meets Dmitri, a woodsman who rescued him, and a new adventure full of love and passion begins for the two young men. But not everything is joy and happiness, since the curse they both have threatens to keep them apart.
This was an unexpectedly beautiful book, It's written as a fairytale and I'm not fond of fairytales, but the story sounds different and I wanted to try it. I'm happily surprised by it.
It is very well written. The plot is very good, it's unexpected and sweet. It has a steady pace, and the world created by the authors is great.
The ability of the authors to transmit the characters' emotions was one of the things that attracted me the most. There were moments when I couldn't help laughing at the most unfunny things, just because Efrosin found it so amusing. I was able to feel all kinds of emotions while reading this book, it was great.
The main characters were very likable; Dmitri was sweet, kind and so nice. But, for me, Efrosin worked the magic; he was pure joy. I loved that character, he was such a delight to read. The relationship between them was very endearing, it was built too fast for me, but I guess it was suitable for the book's length.
The story kept my attention the whole time, there was always something interesting going on. It took enough time to develop the plot, got into the backstory of the main characters and it managed to build a believable relationship in such a few pages.
Overall, it was a very interesting story. I think not only readers who love fairytales would like it, but it can also be enjoyed by anyone who likes to laugh and to read books that are mostly free of angst.

This is the tale about Efrosin and Dmitri, two polar opposites who are both under a curse. Will they be able to break the curses and be together, or is their love doomed to failure?
This book was exceptionally well-written, especially Efrosin's character. He annoyed me to start with as his way of speaking was SOO over the top, but I quickly realized just how much this suited him and his character. I found myself feeling sorry for this character that had annoyed me, as he admitted that he couldn't feel sad, bad or mad (or any other negative emotion). The levity didn't just affect his physical form, but his mental one, too.
Dmitri is Efrosin's opposite; he is bound to the land. He can't ever leave and can only interact with those that come to him. Efrosin is a rich Prince, he is a poor farmer. And yet, these two have something so intense between them that all bets are off with them behaving in a decorous manner!
A short story, packed full of emotion, humour, sadness and curses. Definitely recommended.
