Staff Reviews

Circe, having vexed her father Helios, is banished to an island to live in solitude forever. But of course, as everyone knows, Odysseus arrives...eventually. Since Circe is an immortal being, she's got a lot of living to do before that happens! This novel is my most favorite read this year so far- it has a perfect mix of Greek mythology, witchery, drama, magic, monsters, and romance. The writing is excellent- I couldn't put it down!

— Noelle

Miller expands on the story Circe, a little-known figure in Greek mythology to create an insightful portrayal of humanity. This is some of the most beautiful writing I've ever experienced. As a society, we are flooded with tales of ordinary to extraordinary, of the special, chosen hero. But what about the power of the ordinary? And of choice? Perhaps a strong will can best even the gods of Olympus.

“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.”
