Den mægtigste af alle titanerne, solguden Helios, får datteren Circe med den nymfen Perse. Circe besidder dog hverken sin fars styrke eller sin mors dragende ydre. Derfor drager gudedatteren til menneskernes verden i håb om at finde selskab, men i stedet lærer hun sine egne kræfter at kende. Hun er en magtfuld troldkvinde, hvis kræfter kan forvandle hendes fjender til monstre og true selv de olympiske guder.

"Circe" fortæller historien om troldkvinden Kirkes liv og skildrer blandt andet hendes møder med mytologiske figurer såsom minotauren, Ikaros, Medea og Odysseus.

"Circe" er skrevet af den amerikanske forfatter Madeline Miller, der debuterede i 2011 med den anmelderroste roman "The Song of Achilles". Madeline Miller er uddannet indenfor oldtidskundskab og underviser til daglig highschool-elever i latin, græsk og Shakespeare.

Forlagets beskrivelse #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER--NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR, The Washington Post, People, Time, Amazon, Entertainment Weekly, Bustle, Newsweek, the A.V. Club, Christian Science Monitor and Refinery 29, Buzzfeed, Paste, Audible, Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, Thrillist, NYPL, Self Real Simple, Goodreads, Boston Globe, Electric Literature, BookPage, the Guardian, Book Riot, Seattle Times, and Business Insider

"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.
