SHORTLISTED FOR THE WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2019 Woman. Witch. Myth.
Mortal. Outcast. Lover. Destroyer. Survivor. CIRCE. In the house of Helios,
god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. Circe is a
strange child - not powerful and terrible, like her father, nor gorgeous
and mercenary like her mother. Scorned and rejected, Circe grows up in the
shadows, at home in neither the world of gods or mortals. But Circe has a
dark power of her own: witchcraft. When her gift threatens the gods, she is
banished to the island of Aiaia where she hones her occult craft, casting
spells, gathering strange herbs and taming wild beasts. Yet a woman who
stands alone will never be left in peace for long - and among her island's
guests is an unexpected visitor: the mortal Odysseus, for whom Circe will
risk everything. So Circe sets forth her tale, a vivid, mesmerizing epic of
family rivalry, love and loss - the defiant, inextinguishable song of woman
burning hot and bright through the darkness of a man's world. THE NUMBER
