    The Song of Achilles

    Miller,Madeline
    Kiadó: Bloomsbury
    Greece in the age of heroes. Patroclus, an awkward young prince, has been exiled to the court of King Peleus and his perfect son Achilles. Despite their differences, Achilles befriends the shamed prince, and as they grow into young men skilled in thearts of war and medicine, their bond blossoms into something deeper - despite the displeasure of Achilles's mother Thetis, a cruel sea goddess. But when word comes that Helen of Sparta has been kidnapped, Achilles must go to war in distant Troy andfulfill his destiny. Torn between love and fear for his friend, Patroclus goes with him, little knowing that the years that follow will test everything they hold dear.Profoundly moving and breathtakingly original, this rendering of the epic Trojan War is a dazzling feat of the imagination, a devastating love story, and an almighty battle between gods and kings, peace and glory, immortal fame and the human heart.Gyönyörű történet istenekről és istennőkről, királyokról és királynőkről, halhatatlanságról és az emberi szívről. A fiatal Patroklosz királyok sarja, mégis száműzik otthonából, amikor akaratlanul egy fiú halálát okozza. Az ifjú a híres-neves hős, Péleuszkirály udvarába kerül, ahol együtt nevelkedik a király fiával, Akhilleusszal. Az aranyszőke hajú herceg már gyermekként is erős, gyors és vonzó - ellenállhatatlan mindazok számára, akik találkoznak vele. Arra rendeltetett, hogy egy napon ő legyen alegkiválóbb görög. Patroklosz és Akhilleusz nem is különbözhetne jobban egymástól, mégis különleges, eltéphetetlen kötelék szövődik közöttük. Amikor Parisz, a trójai királyfi elrabolja a gyönyörű Helenét Spártából, Hellász minden hősét harcba szólítják atrójaiak ellen. Akhilleusz nem tud ellenállni az istenek által neki ígért dicsőség és hírnév csábításának, így csatlakozik a görög seregekhez. Patroklosz pedig félelem és a barátja iránt érzett szeretet között őrlődve követi őt Trója falai alá, nohatudja, a sors szörnyű áldozatot követel majd mindkettőjüktől.

Circe is a strange child - not powerful and terrible, like her father, nor gorgeous and mercenary like hermother. Scorned and rejected, Circe grows up in theshadows, at home in neither the world of gods or mortals. But Circe has a dark power of her own: witchcraft. When her gift threatens the gods, she is banished to the island of Aiaia where she hones her occult craft, casting spells, gathering strangeherbs and taming wild beasts. Yet a woman who stands alone will never be left in peace for long - and among her island's guests is an unexpected visitor: the mortal Odysseus, for whom Circe will risk everything.So Circe sets forth her tale, a vivid, mesmerizing epic of family rivalry, love and loss - the defiant, inextinguishable song of woman burning hot and bright through the darkness of a man's world.A novel to be gobbled greedily in a single sitting - ObserverCirce is poised to become the literary sensation of the summer, as much for the quality of its writing as its timeliness - Sunday Times MagazineAz Akhilleusz dala szerzőjének merész, káprázatos és várva várt új regénye, amely kiválóan rajzolja újra azOdüsszeiából ismert hatalmas varázslónő, Kirké életét.A leghatalmasabb titán, a Napisten, Héliosz házában egy kislány születik. Kirké furcsa gyermek - nem rendelkezik hatalommal, mint az apja, sem azzal a rosszindulatú vonzerővel, mint az anyja.Ám amikor társaságért a halandók világa felé fordul, felfedezi, hogy mégiscsak van egy különleges tehetsége: a varázslás képessége, amelynek révén szörnyekké tudja változtatni a riválisait, ráadásul még az istenekre is veszélyt jelenthet.Fenyegetettségében Zeusz száműzi őt egy lakatlan szigetre, ahol az istennő tökéletesíti titkos tudományát, vadállatokat szelídít, és a híres mitológiai alakok közül többel is találkozik: a vérszomjas Minótaurosszal, az ügyes kezű Daidalosszal, a gyilkosMédeiával és persze a fortélyos Odüsszeusszal is.Ám egy nőnek veszélyes egyedül élni, Kirké pedig akaratlanul is magára vonja mind az emberek, mind az istenek haragját, és végül az egyik legrettegettebb olümposzi istennel találja szemközt magát. Hogy megvédje, amit a leginkább szeret, minden erejétössze kell szednie, és egyszer s mindenkorra választania kell az istenek és a halandók világa között.Madeline Miller regénye mámorító eposz a családi vetélkedésről, intrikáról, szerelemről és veszteségről, illetve a férfiak uralta világban is rendíthetetlen női erőről.
