Circe by Madeline Miller is one of our Top Ten Audiobooks of 2018. It is based on Greek mythology, but as Alexandra Alter of The New York Times says, Miller has managed to recast “the most infamous female figure from the Odyssey as a hero in her own right.”
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.

[pb_blockquote author=”Beth Albrecht, The Magic Tree Bookstore”]This remarkable journey into mythology brings the ancient gods directly and viscerally into the present. Circe is a perfect mashup of elegant language, glorious storytelling, and exquisitely modern sensibilities. Miller’s telling left me awed and moved by Circe and her story, all while wishing I could invite her over for a glass of wine on the porch. How this amazing author so perfectly melds the human and the divine, creating a story both immediate and epic, is dazzling.[/pb_blockquote]
