Circe

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.

I am so sad that this book is over! ??
The beginning was very slow and confusing with so many characters being introduced all at the same time. I just couldn’t keep up with all the different names and creatures, so I struggled with that. But after the first six chapters the pace of the story picks up and then I just couldn’t put the book down! I loved every page from that point on. Circe is the classic underdog that everybody hopes will conquer all in the end. And by everybody I mean the readers because she sure wasn’t loved in this book and I honestly don’t know why! I really enjoyed her journey, her development and the goddess that she became. And the ending... [sigh] spectacular! Even if you don’t know anything about Greek mythology, I still think you should give this book a chance. Just to read about this strong woman who made a name for herself by deciding to stop trying to please everyone. And what woman wouldn’t love to do the same?

I absolutely adored this book. I feel like it went by so fast! I swear the beginning is a bit slow but afterward, the story will pick up and you will begin to love the characters. The themes in this book are wonderful, I loved how she made the female protagonist, independent and reflective. Definitely a book worth the hype.
