A dark and epic feminist retelling that boldly reclaims the myth of the most formidable and feared witch in Ancient Greece

Shunned. Persecuted. Tormented.
Medea longs for a different life. Since childhood, she has been separated from her sister, shunned by her mother, and persecuted and tormented by her brother and father. All because of a unique and dangerous talent- witchcraft.

Fierce. Powerful. Sorceress.
But when a dashing young hero, Jason, arrives to claim the famed Golden Fleece that her father protects, Medea sees her opportunity to escape. Her offer to help Jason overcome the trials set by her father sets in motion a journey that will test every ounce of her strength, magic and loyalty; a journey that will see her battle monsters, dethrone kings and fall in love.

When faced with the ultimate betrayal, Medea is driven to an act of desperation so brutal it rips apart the lives of everyone involved...

Industry Reviews
A fiery and dramatic novel, starring one of mythology's most notorious women, this is a fascinating descent into darkness * Jennifer Saint *

So delightfully devastating! A deeply humanising, visceral portrayal of one of myth's most controversial figures, Rosie Hewlett's Medea explores the polarising possibilities of humanity, from our capacity for pain and heartbreak to our potential for vengeance and retribution * Bea Fitzgerald. bestselling author of Girl, Goddess, Queen *

An incredible tale of love and power as spellbinding and complex as Medea herself * Phoenicia Rogerson, author of Herc *

Deliciously dark in its portrayal of obsession, manipulation and the terrible temptations of power, Medea is a compelling read, every bit as enthralling as it's heroine * Elizabeth Lee, author of Cunning Women *

Dark, visceral, unrelenting, searing - it's the story of Medea we have been waiting for, and more. The female villain par excellence takes the stage to give her version of events, in a tale that is as gripping as it is powerful and uncompromising * Emily Hauser *
