Levity: A Gay Fairy Tale

Blurb

Cursed as an infant with a lack of physical and emotional gravity, Prince Efrosin can’t keep his feet on the ground or his head out of the clouds. Laughing his way through life, he’s never been weighed down by love and lust.

Then one fateful day, his tenuous tie to the earth is severed and he blows away on the wind. He’s rescued by Dmitri, a handsome young woodsman who suffers from a mysterious curse of his own, and the two strangers are irresistibly drawn together. Experiencing sex and love for the first time, they dive into a delightfully sensual and passionate affair.

But the evil witch who cursed them is planning her ultimate revenge. Efrosin and Dmitri must fight to find their fairy tale ending and live happily ever after.

This is a retold fairy tale with an erotic twist. Previously published as Earthly Desires.

Review

This was the most beautifully written fairytale. It was incredibly sweet and it had the most fascinating characters.

Prince Efrosin has been cursed with the inability to keep his feet on the ground. He is also unable to experience deep feelings, he just laughs at anything that evokes any kind of emotion. One day he finds himself free of his tie to earth and he meets Dmitri, a woodsman who rescued him, and a new adventure full of love and passion begins for the two young men. But not everything is joy and happiness, since the curse they both have threatens to keep them apart.

This was an unexpectedly beautiful book, It’s written as a fairytale and I’m not fond of fairytales, but the story sounds different and I wanted to try it. I’m happily surprised by it. It is very well written. The plot is very good, it’s unexpected and sweet. It has a steady pace, and the world created by the authors is great.

The ability of the authors to transmit the characters’ emotions was one of the things that attracted me the most. There were moments when I couldn’t help laughing at the most unfunny things, just because Efrosin found it so amusing. I was able to feel all kinds of emotions while reading this book, it was great.

The main characters were very likable; Dmitri was sweet, kind and so nice. But, for me, Efrosin worked the magic; he was pure joy. I loved that character, he was such a delight to read. The relationship between them was very endearing, it was built too fast for me, but I guess it was suitable for the book’s length.

The story kept my attention the whole time, there was always something interesting going on. It took enough time to develop the plot, got into the backstory of the main characters and it managed to build a believable relationship in such a few pages.

Overall, it was a very interesting story. I think not only readers who love fairytales would like it, but it can also be enjoyed by anyone who likes to laugh and to read books that are mostly free of angst.
