As the tale takes grip, the reader becomes haunted, just as the characters are haunted by a sense of guilt and betrayal. One of the finest of Linklater's later, deeper, darker novels, The Dark of Summer combines national and family histories as it sets out to understand the past, redeem the corrosion of memory and find meaning in a world of divided loyalties.

Summer Reading: Great Books for Birders and Nature Lovers
Circe—daughter of the Sun—is no mere mortal, but she lacks the power of her fellow immortals and is banished to an island by Zeus. In this novel she begins to learn the power of witchcraft, and encounters characters and creatures plucked out of Greek mythology, like the Minotaur and Odysseus himself. The first two books weave a compelling tale of powerful immortals, a world deeply divided between magic users and the rest of society, and a dark and lurking threat on the other side of a powerful magical barrier.
The third book releases later this year.
