Psyche And Eros Synopsis

“Startlingly lovely. This is Greek mythology as it’s meant to be told—witty, indulgent, deeply felt.” — Grace D. Li, New York Times bestselling author of Portrait of a Thief

“In Luna McNamara’s poetic and nervy retelling we get a new glimpse of how love strengthens perception and perception, love.” — Gregory Maguire, New York Times bestselling author of Wicked

In this utterly transporting retelling of Greek mythology, the god of desire is cursed to fall for a spirited young mortal woman, but if she looks upon his face they will be parted forever—an epic adventure and love story for the ages, sure to satisfy fans of Madeline Miller and V.E. Schwab

Who said true love is a myth?

A prophecy claims that Psyche, princess of Mycenae, will conquer a monster feared by the gods. Beloved by her family but at odds with her society’s expectations for women, Psyche trains to become a hero, mastering blade and bow.

When Psyche angers Aphrodite, the love goddess enlists Eros, god of desire, to help deliver a cruel curse. Eros is the last born of the eldest gods, dry-witted and jaded, unsure of his place in the cosmos. The last thing he wants is to become involved in the chaos of the mortal world, but when he pricks himself with the arrow intended for Psyche, Eros is doomed to yearn for a woman who will be torn from him the moment their eyes meet.

A joyous and subversive tale of gods, monsters, and the human heart and soul, Psyche and Eros dazzles the senses while exploring notions of trust, sacrifice, and what it truly means to be a hero. With unforgettably vivid characters, spellbinding prose, and delicious tension, Luna McNamara has crafted a shimmering and propulsive debut novel about a love so strong it defies the will of Olympus.

“Luna McNamara’s sweeping retelling adds a gorgeous luster and depth to a beloved myth. Every page is a breathless, swoonworthy adventure.” — Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Tale of the Flower Bride and The Gilded Wolves series

“A beautiful retelling, breathing new life into a beloved myth. Luna McNamara weaves an enthralling tale of adventure, romance, and star-crossed lovers, in an enchanting world of ancient gods and legends.” — Sue Lynn Tan, bestselling author of Daughter of the Moon Goddess
