Win a signed copy of Circe

Circe

Circe is the amazing sequel to The Song of Achilles by Madelline Miller.

"I remember Circe was one of the challenges met by Odysseus, the one who turned men into pigs. The beautiful character who narrates this story is that same “wicked witch” but a far cry from how Homer portrayed her. She is lovely, misunderstood, wilful and brilliant, a strong woman slowly growing into her power." - Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Sea of Ghosts by Alan Campbell

Leaving the behind the imaginings of Deepgate, Alan Campbell introduces a new world, a new cast of characters in a novel that reads like a cross between Stephen Deas and Joe Abercrombie. Thrown out of the Graveyard corps by a corrupt and weak emperor, Granger has to turn to running his own prison. It's not a lucrative business but if he keeps his head down, doesn't succumb to pity or morals then he may just survive. But when two unexpected prisoners enter his life then his world is turned upside down. Ianthe is young, blind and deaf she can only see or hear through other people's senses. This makes her unique in a world held to ransom by the powerful Haurstaf a sisterhood of telepaths who consider the young girl a threat to their power. She's also Granger's daughter...
