Titan goddess, Daughter of Helios, Unloved child, Witch, Lover of Odysseus, all I knew of Circe was that she turned Odysseus’ sailors into pigs….

In her marvellous retelling of this Greek Myth, Madeline Miller places the focus firmly on Circe – a goddess with more than the touch of the mortal about her than usual.

Wyntertide – Andrew Caldecott

The second novel in Andrew Caldecott QC‘s magical realism / fantasy fiction trilogy, set in the independent enclave of Rotherweird.

At first glance a typical market town and surrounding countryside setting, but where the study of history is limited to 1800 onwards, and society has gone its own way since Elizabethan times.

We meet many of the characters first introduced in Rotherweird, and some new faces, both fiendish and friendly. And the plot thickens….

One more to go. Hazel’s just ordered it. Magic!
