Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman


My Comments:

This book sounds so interesting! I love the idea that they are using real history and mixing fantasy with it according to the goodreads synopsis!

The Book:

Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Genre: YA Fantasy Historical Fiction
Pages: 428

Goodreads Synopsis:

Imagine a time when the gods turn a blind eye to the agony of men, when the last of the hellions roam the plains and evil stirs beyond the edges of the map. A time when cities burn, and in their ashes, empires rise.

Alexander, Macedonia’s sixteen-year-old heir, is on the brink of discovering his fated role in conquering the known world but finds himself drawn to a newcomer…

Katerina must navigate the dark secrets of court life while hiding her own mission: kill the Queen. But she doesn’t account for her first love…

Jacob will go to unthinkable lengths to win Katerina, even if it means having to compete for her heart with Hephaestion, a murderer sheltered by the prince.

And far across the sea, Zofia, a Persian princess and Alexander’s unmet betrothed, wants to alter her destiny by seeking the famed and deadly Spirit Eaters.

Weaving fantasy with the shocking details of real history, New York Times bestselling author of Sex with Kings Eleanor Herman reimagines the greatest emperor the world has ever known, Alexander the Great, in the first book of the Blood of Gods and Royals series.

The Whole Series:

  1. I have read this! It’s good. Not entirely historically accurate but it has fantasy elements mixed into it, making it even more interesting. It has great action and suspense. You get the villain POV as well and overall it is a great adventure. I still have to read the sequel and people say it is better than the first!
