'A bold and subversive retelling of the goddess's story,' this #1 New York Times bestseller is 'both epic and intimate in its scope, recasting the most infamous female figure from the Odyssey as a hero in her own right' (Alexandra Alter, The New York Times).

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.

  • Willow B.

    Fun short read, great for a drive. The reader is amazing

  • Aminata S.

    Entertaining all the way through! Nice way to revisit Greek mythology.

  • Brenda B.

    This was an exquisite book, an epic tale full of love, life, violence, and death. Ms. Miller brings Greek mythology alive! Her writing was beautifully complemented by the narrator, whose voice could be a siren’s. Between the story and the narration, I found it hard to put this down.

  • Sarah D.

    Took me a while to get into but 1/4 way in - I was transfixed. Somehow her exile to the island and closeness to nature resonated beautifully in this lockdown period.

  • Julianna S.

    Truly wonderful. I wanted it to never end.

  • Sebastiaan T.

    The narration made the book great for me.

  • Christine S.

    Wonderful story and great narration.
