In the realm of Greek mythology, where gods and mortals collide, Madeline Miller’s “Circe” weaves a mesmerizing tale of power, love, and the indomitable strength of a woman in a man’s world. This #1 New York Times bestseller takes readers on an enchanting journey through the life of Circe, the formidable sorceress of The Odyssey.

Born into the illustrious house of Helios, the sun god and mightiest of the Titans, Circe is an extraordinary character who defies expectations from the start. Unlike her powerful father or alluring mother, she is a strange kid searching for her true place in the world. It is through her encounters with mortals that Circe discovers her own power—the power of witchcraft. With this mystical ability, she can transform her rivals into monsters and even challenge the gods themselves.

However, such power comes at a price. Threatened by her abilities, Zeus banishes Circe to a deserted island, forcing her to refine her occult craft and face numerous mythological figures along the way. From the Minotaur to Daedalus and his ill-fated son Icarus, as well as the infamous Medea and cunning Odysseus, Circe’s path intertwines with these iconic characters.

Yet, danger lurks on this desolate island where Circe stands alone. Unwittingly drawing the wrath of both gods and men, she finds herself pitted against one of the most vengeful Olympians. To protect what she holds dear, Circe must summon every ounce of strength and decide whether she truly belongs among the gods she is born from or with the mortals she has come to love.

Miller’s storytelling prowess shines through in “Circe,” creating unforgettably vivid characters that leap off the page.
