Eros and Psyche is a novel that explores the original Greek myth but attempts to flesh out and modernize the myth as well. The story follows the separate histories of Eros, the son of Aphrodite and god of love, and Psyche, the mortal beauty destined to marry a monster. Their lives remain apart until Eros, in disgrace and in disguise, saves the life of the child Psyche, throwing the universe out of balance. As Psyche grows up, she flees her curse of marrying a monster to live with the Amazons and have her own independence. But destiny has forced Eros and Psyche together, and only together can they bring back balance to the universe and save each other.
