More:

When she turned to the universe of humans, she discovered that only the power of magic could morph rivals into monsters and menace the gods. Circe was threatened and deported to a deserted island as a punishment. But she hones her clandestine craft there. 

Along with wild beasts and famous figures of all the mythology, she passes the paths; the characters include Minotaur, Daedalus, and his fated son Icarus. This is the fact that the paths are brimming with danger, particularly for the woman who stands alone and facing the anger of God and men. 

Eventually, she finds herself pitted against the most dreadful and vindictive of the Olympians. Circe wants to protect what is most near and dear to her. For this purpose, she gathered all her strengths and powers, regardless of whether she belongs to the God who has created her or the world where she came to love.
