Fantasy Romance, LGBTQ
The day before his coming-of-age ceremony, Eirik has a fight with his best friend—who had pointed out that, adopted by a pair of traveling warriors as Eirik was, how can he know who his ancestors are to celebrate them? Embarrassed and angry, he's not in the mood for the story his fathers insist on telling him.
Despite himself, however, Eirik becomes engrossed in the tale of the son of the god of Love who has never felt pain, and the son of the god of Envy who always does, how they struggle with each other and their community, and how, ultimately, they trick the underworld out of a very special prize.

A bittersweet and unusual story, entertaining, charming, with a lot of emotions and beautiful characters.
After having a fight with his best friend, Eirik is not in the mood to listen to the story his father is telling. But getting to know about the son of the god of Love who has never felt pain, and the son of the god of Envy who always does, start being more related to his own story than he could expect.
It is really hard to tell what it is about without giving much away. I'm just saying there's more to the story than the blurb gives away. It's fast paced and easy to read, enjoyable and with a writing style that remind me of fairy tales. I loved the way it was written but most of all I loved the characters. Among them, the one that I liked the most was Saeter. He wasn't good. He did bad things, but I think getting to know what was on his mind made him a more likable character. I do think there was a lot of love in him and even though the story wasn't extremely romantic, it did have some lovely moments.
Recommended to readers who like fantasy books with low heat level and M/M pairing.
