Thirteen top novels set in the world of myth

Her new novel is Miraculum.

At LitReactor Post tagged thirteen novels set in the world of myth, including:
Circe by Madeline Miller

If there’s anyone to dominate the field of novelized Greek myths, it’s Madeline Miller. Circe—Miller’s most recent novel—tells the story of the goddess/witch/sorceress most famous for changing Odysseus and his men into swine. As with her previous novel, Song of Achilles, and her short novella, Galatea, Miller gets us into the heads of characters who previously seemed little more than statues, oil paintings or glossed-over footnotes. Aside from the direct mythological link, Circe is a dazzling, compulsive read all on its own.
