Carol V says:
Completely absorbing and poetic, this book will take you through a whirlwind of Greek gods and heroes while still feeling firmly planted in reality.
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. Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of Greek mythology's most famous figures.
