Set in the City of Sunsport, a City inspired by Waterford City, The Legend of Circe: Circe’s Awakening tells the story of Circe Goodwin a normal teenage girl. She is loved by her adopted father, goes to school, hangs out with her friends, and can fire energy blasts from her hands. Wait… That’s not normal. Yeah, Circe doesn’t think so either. Attending Sunsport Super School’s basic hero training course to learn to control her new powers; Circe will learn a lot about herself, her past, and her powers, while making new friends and maybe more…
Get ready for a fun, exciting adventure, as Circe and her classmates are about to get a crash course in being a hero. But keep your eyes open, for secrets lurk everywhere,
many of which will shape Circe’s past, present, and future.
