Circe by Madeline Miller

Circe by Madeline Miller

A spellbinding literary masterpiece that breathes life into the captivating world of Greek mythology. It is basically the Odyssey, as told from the perspective of the powerful enchantress Circe.

Set against the backdrop of the enchanting island of Aiaia, where Circe resides, the novel beautifully weaves together elements of mythology, magic, and human emotion. As a daughter of the sun god Helios, Circe discovers her own extraordinary powers of sorcery, leading her on a journey of self-discovery, love, and empowerment.

What sets “Circe” apart is its vivid portrayal of the mythical landscape, including the island of Crete. The connection with Crete adds an extra layer of depth to the narrative, as it plays a significant role in Circe’s journey. The island’s rich history and mythology intertwine seamlessly with Circe’s own story, enhancing the novel’s authenticity and transporting readers to a world where gods and mortals coexist.
