Beschreibung

In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child - not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother. Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power - the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves.

Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus, the murderous Medea, and, of course, wily Odysseus.

But there is danger, too, for a woman who stands alone, and Circe unwittingly draws the wrath of both men and gods, ultimately finding herself pitted against one of the most terrifying and vengeful of the Olympians. To protect what she loves most, Circe must summon all her strength and choose, once and for all, whether she belongs with the gods she is born from, or the mortals she has come to love.

With unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language and page-turning suspense, Circe is a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man's world.

In this story, Circe begins her life a shunned member of her family, mocked at every turn and ridiculed for showing weakness.

In this story, Circe begins her life a shunned member of her family, mocked at every turn and ridiculed for showing weakness. She grows into her power much later, after being humiliated and punished by both gods and mortal men. In exile she learns how to use her witchcraft - turning to vengeance and growing into a fearful witch, tired of men’s cruel games. Yet somehow she still manages to show empathy for those who have kindness in their hearts... Such an amazing, fresh look on the tale of Circe, a woman who’s fed up with always being handed the short end of the stick. This beautifully designed hardcover edition is also too pretty to pass up. It's now one of the prettiest books I own.

One of the best books I read this year!!

Miller swept me off my feet with the story of Circe’s life.Born a goddess to one of the greatest Titans she was meant for something big but Circe was despised and hated by her family for all her resemblance to mortals and differences to the divine. However much the hatred and rejection, she grew into a powerful and self-determined divinity. Circe’s story is one of rejection, loss and self-discovery,and it encompasses centuries of greek mythology and legends. This read was an absolute delight and I’m already excited to read Miller“The Song of Achilles”.

So I really really honestly loved this so much! Greek Mythology is like my favorite mythology, and I love the way this is told like one! Or, well, written. It had me captivated from page one - I love Circes growth and how she hadles all that is hurled her way. She is not a perfect goddess in any sense, and she embraces her flaws and just wants to be different, wants to be herself. I had not anticipated the way it would end and I loved that as well! If you love Greek Mythology and badass women, you will totally love this. <3
