Originally published: 2018.
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.

You’re in for a real treat with this book, as Madeline Miller weaves a rich tale of Circe, a young girl born to a God and nymph. Despite her parentage, Circe is neither powerful, nor alluring - so how did she become the feared witch of Aiaia? I really enjoyed this book, as Madeline Millers wonderfully descriptive language made the mythology come alive. It is easy to believe you are there alongside Circe to bear witness to her story. This was a real page turner! I will definitely be adding Madeline millers A song of Achilles to my to be read list.
