    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.

    Greece in the age of heroes. Patroclus, an awkward young prince, has been exiled to the kingdom of Phthia to be raised in the shadow of King Peleus and his golden son, Achilles. “The best of all the Greeks”—strong, beautiful, and the child of a goddess—Achilles is everything the shamed Patroclus is not. Yet despite their differences, the boys become steadfast companions. Their bond deepens as they grow into young men and become skilled in the arts of war and medicine—much to the displeasure and the fury of Achilles’ mother, Thetis, a cruel sea goddess with a hatred of mortals.

    Der Mythos von Circe - modern und fesselnd neu erzählt. Circe, Tochter des Sonnengotts Helios, ist anders: Denn sie besitzt Zauberkräfte. Von ihrer Familie missachtet und von Zeus verbannt, führt sie ein zurückgezogenes Leben auf der Insel Aiaia unter wilden Tieren, die sie gezähmt hat. In der Abgeschiedenheit entwickelt sie ihre magischen Fährigkeiten weiter, bis sie sich wahrhaftig eine Hexe nennen kann. Doch sie bleibt nicht lange allein: Als Hermes, Daidalos, Odysseus, Iason, Medea und die mächtige Athene ihre Wege kreuzen, muss sich Circe die Frage stellen.
