So this review is based mostly on the writing, which is superb, reminiscent of the language used in Cold Mountain. For me it overshadowed the plot, which seemed to be hidden by the descriptive prose.
The front matter mentioned 2 editors. They and the author make for a potent combination.

Since the story is very short, the characters are not the best developed, but they still have a genuine sweetness to them. I was a tad surprised by the sweetness inside the God of Chaos, but that inner love is fairly common in tales like this. I enjoyed the story, but overall, I feel that if this story was worked on a bit further, adding more length, character descriptions, and environmental details that this book would definitely rate much higher. There's so much story here left untold, and I'd love to see it fully bloomed.
This is definitely an author to watch, I can see great things in their future!
Note: I received this book as a free galley for review.
The main character, Celestra, is preoccupied on getting the blessing of her King and passing the test the Genesis Tree will give her so she can go away and make her own world. But she won't be able to do any of these things alone. This is where Tydus comes in. He's been watching Celestra from afar, loving her from afar. Unfortunately, he's infamous for loving other goddesses as well. Somehow these two fall in love.
But there are others out there trying to hold Celestra back from her dream. Like the Queen (dun, dun, duuuuun)
Together, Celestra and Tydus will fight to be together. They will fight for the chance to build their own world.
Will this get them their happy ending? Or a tragic one?
I really liked this short story. It's fairy-tale-like. Dream-inducing. Just like a Disney princess movie, except for an older audience. It's sugary sweet and easily likable.
I highly recommend this to anyone who likes a short love story that will make them smile for the rest of the day. :)
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.
