A magic realism-fueled romantic comedy filled with adventure, laughs, and modern takes on ancient mythologies!
While it’s commonly believed that Cupid and Eros are two names for the same god, they are in fact colleagues, each the god of love in their respective pantheon. They still match up mortals and do their best to stem the tide of infidelity and divorce, but besides their common mission they are as different as night and day. Cupid is the original “nice guy,” sweet, charming, but constantly in the “friend zone.” Eros on the other hand is sexy as hell, and irresistible to anything with a pulse— mortal, god, or anything in between. He’s the ultimate romantic; she’s the ultimate personification of passion and unbridled sensuality. Those very differences are what makes them such a good team – their successful match rate is the highest in the godly realms. And off the clock they’re equally close. Neither can remember a time when they weren’t inseparable, and most other gods tend to think of them as a unit, too.
Alas, Cupid is depressed these days and has been ever since his love, Psyche, ran away with that dermatologist. He goes about his duties, all the while hoping that it’ll be his turn soon. That some Egyptian goddess will dance with him at the inter-pantheon mixer, or that a mortal woman will fall for him instead of her dictated match.
But Eros is growing tired of her partner’s moping. Existence just hasn’t seemed quite the same since Cupid fell into his funk. After eons of having the best wingman (no pun intended) in all of the godly realms, Eros is beginning to miss the “true” cupid.
At its heart, the story of a guy/girl friendship that has withstood millennia, the further adventures of cupid and eros follows two love gods trying to figure out for themselves what this thing they create in the world really means, and how you find it when a heart tipped arrow just doesn’t seem to do the trick.
