CIRCE by Madeline Miller

Details

Set in the world of ancient Greek mythology, Circe is the fantastical tale of a fierce young woman—half titan, half nymph—who dares to challenge the gods.

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.
