Although this book has a fairly predictable plot, it's a cute and comforting story of the unusual love between two opposites. When Celestra is given a seed that she must nurture using her own tears into fruition, she tries every kind of self torture to bring tears to her eyes to attempt to nourish the little seed. When Tydus comes into the picture making her cry tears of joy, Celestra's seed miraculously sprouts, only later to become victim to a jealous woman's hatred.

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.

For a short story, Tears of the Goddess is remarkably cute. The romance is somewhat sugary and cliched, but it's not annoying in any way. It's an adorable read that I breezed by without any difficulty at all. The world building is really impressive, it's not the usual thing so that really took me by surprise. I had a clear image of how everything would look like and I loved it! The writing was smooth and poetic, super easy to get through but not easy enough to bore.

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. :)

I always feel inadequate when reading genres that are unfamiliar. My understanding of fantasy is very limited, limited to the works of Tolkien and C S Lewis. But I read them 40 years ago and do not know the current "rules" of the fantasy genre, what is allegedly allowed and not allowed.
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.

For a very short story this was very well rounded with an instant draw to the characters. It's very romantic in a fairytale way. The danger they face together and love for each other was touching and cute.

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.
