  • Circe

    Madeline Miller

    Product Code: BWGOK
    Paperback
    Longlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction 2019, Circe is a captivating story that has been praised as "a triumph" by The Times.

    In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. Circe is a strange child - not powerful and terrible, like her father, nor gorgeous and mercenary like her mother. Scorned and rejected, Circe grows up in the shadows, at home in neither the world of gods of mortals. But Circe has a dark power of her own: witchcraft.

    When her gift threatens the gods, she is banished to the island of Aiaia where she hones her occult craft, casting spells, gathering strange herbs and taming wild beasts. Yet a woman who stands alone will never be left in peace for long. So Circe sets forth her tale, a vivid, mesmerising epic of family rivalry, love and loss.

    Orange Prize-winning author Madeline Miller tells the story of the mythological witch Circe in this historical fantasy.

    Inspired by Homer's Odyssey, it follows Circe as she is scorned and rejected by her kin for not having the look nor the voice of divinity. She is banished to the remote island of Aiaia after casting a dark spell and it's here where she learns to harness her occult craft.

    However, she's not alone and comes across many gods, heroes and monsters as she is faced with the decision of heading back to where she's from or staying with the mortals she has come to love.
