About the Book
Immortality isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, especially for the 3,375-year-old virgin of Mount Olympus. Cupid’s coddled, humdrum existence takes a sharp turn for the worse when his mischievous aim sends a love-tipped arrow into the wrong rump, and the God of Love gets a taste of his own medicine.
Banished from Mount Olympus, Cupid plunges to Earth and lands in present-day Tarra, Indiana, where mortals go on about their daily routines, oblivious to the capricious gods stirring the pot from above. Delighted to discover his wings and pubescent pudge have transformed into an impressive human form, Cupid swiftly leaves his virginity behind. His carnal spree is cut short when he falls passionately in love for the first time in his immortal life, and the full measure of his punishment becomes clear: he must find the Right Love match for the mortal he desperately loves, and then he must let her go.
To fulfill his divine mission, Cupid must survive the violent throes of his own coming of age while battling the powerful gods conspiring against him. FIRST QUIVER explores the meaning of love with an irreverent, contemporary take on classical mythology and the original dysfunctional family.
Can I just say that this book was just too cute? I mean not only was the premise uniquely comical but the story was also surprisingly heartfelt. And I am such a sucker for anything Greek god related so it was already a win in my book. But this book just gave you exactly what you’d expect and then some with just a sharp wit and just every emotion on the spectrum.
I mean, once you start reading this one you’ll think to yourself: what’s not to love? First Quiver is a book that doesn’t take itself too seriously (you know one of those types of books) but also doesn’t fall into the trap of becoming a pointless book. Plus I got to realize that Cupid is under-appreciated! I mean after reading this fun story I’m ready for even more Cupid inspired books!
This is just one of those books that are a joy to read. The type that you could pick up whenever, settle down, and find yourself smiling as you read it. And I don’t know about you, but that’s something that I find much needed lately. And I love a cheesy but well done story, they’re just so satisfying!
