I love me a good Greek myth! Circe, the goddess from Homer's Odyssey who turns Odysseus' men into pigs, gets to tell her own story here. Despite being born the daughter of Helios, a powerful Titan, Circe's gender relegates her being more or less an object of men's desires. Even a goddess lacks power in the court of her father. A chance encounter with the doomed Prometheus has far reaching consequences. Circe, eventually banned by her father and Zeus to the island of Aiaia, begins to discover her true powers. The arrival of Odysseus has far reaching implications that will see Circe eventually make a decision that will change her life forever. If you love Greek mythology, you'll enjoy this read and discover that being a goddess isn't all it's cracked up to be.
