A Veil of Gods and Kings is a retelling of the Greek myth about the Demi-god Apollo and his lover, prince Hyacinth.

They are polar opposites. One is a happy-go-lucky god who runs away from responsibility. The other is a prince with his entire kingdom on his shoulders. They are forced to spend time together and we watch how they slowly balance each other while falling in love.

This is the first book of a series and it has little action (there is more later), but it was a treat to observe how a loving relationship can not only make…

Apollo is a god who refuses to take his position as god of the sun.

Until his father forces him to either ascend immediately, or spend the year being mentored under the obnoxious Prince Hyacinth. Forced together, Apollo and Hyacinth grapple with their mutual disdain for each other, but eventually irritation turns into love.

Apollo and Hyacinth are the sweetest opposites attract couple. One is an uptight responsible prince, the other is a rebel demi-god. They get together, they give the other what they’ve lacked, and make each other better.

These are two good-natured characters who love humanity and work…

From Reni's list on MM fantasies in alternate worlds.
