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.

The book seemed glitchy and the narrator would reappear themselves about 3-4 times throughout the book.

Otherwise the information was super useful and great!

It was to heavy on FBI undercover work and not focused enough on art for me to really love this book. I did finish it , and found it interesting and compelling. I’d recommend it for some one who is interested in how undercover agents operate.
