    #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER”Fængslende.” Donna Tartt”Vildt romantisk.” Time”Nervepirrende og spændende … smukt gjort.” Washington Post”Stærk, opfindsom, lidenskabelig og smukt skrevet.” Boston GlobeMadeline Millers mesterlige genfortælling af Homers Iliade – den klassiske myte om den trojanske krig – handler om Patroklos, en akavet ung prins, som sendes i eksil hos kong Peleus og dennes søn Achilleus. Achilleus er stærk, smuk og søn af en gudinde – alt det, som den forsigtige Patroklos ikke er. Trods deres forskelligheder spirer et venskab imellem dem. Drengene trænes i kamp og undervises i lægekunst, og efterhånden som de vokser op, udvikler deres venskab sig til kærlighed. Da den smukke Helena kidnappes af en trojansk prins, sender grækerne deres stærke helt Achilleus i krig mod Troja. Patroklos frygter for sin ven og tager med ham, uvidende om, at de næste år kan koste ham alt.Achilleus’ sang er en storladen og følelsesfuld roman om krig, ære og udødelig kærlighed.

    Circe, en särpräglad flicka utan sin fars krafter eller sin mors förföriska förmåga, upptäcker sin talang för häxkonster när hon ger sig in i den dödliga världen. Hon kan förvandla sina fiender till monster, men hennes krafter leder till att hon förvisas till en öde ö. Där slipar hon sina mörka konster och möter mytiska figurer som Medea och Minotauren. Omedveten om hoten från både människor och gudar måste Circe välja mellan sin födelsevärld och den hon har lärt sig älska för att skydda allt hon håller kärt.
