Circe by Madeline Miller


‘I love a Greek mythological retelling, and this one in particular sparked my obsession! Rejected by man and god, Circe moves to a remote island and learns the art of magic, spells and witchcraft. For too long women in Greek myths have been reduced to femme fatales, and Madeline Miller is rectifying this one heroine at a time. An empowering story of revenge!’ – Helena

In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe has neither the look nor the voice of divinity, and is scorned and rejected by her kin. Increasingly isolated, she turns to mortals for companionship, leading her to discover a power forbidden to the gods: witchcraft. When love drives Circe to cast a dark spell, wrathful Zeus banishes her to the remote island of Aiaia. There she learns to harness her occult craft, drawing strength from nature. But she will not always be alone; many are destined to pass through Circe’s place of exile, entwining their fates with hers. The messenger god, Hermes. The craftsman, Daedalus. A ship bearing a golden fleece. And wily Odysseus, on his epic voyage home.
