ABOUT

Title: Legacy of Kings

Author: Eleanor Herman

Series: Blood of Gods and Royals #1

Publisher: Harlequin Teen

Release Date: August 25th 2015

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 newcomer Katerina, who must navigate the dark secrets of court life while hiding her own mission: kill the Queen. But Kat’s first love, Jacob, will go to unthinkable lengths to win her, even if it means competing for her heart with Hephaestion, a murderer sheltered by the prince. And far across the sea, Zofia, a Persian princess and Alexander’s unmet fiancée, wants to alter her destiny by seeking the famed and deadly Spirit Eaters.

Weaving fantasy with the salacious and fascinating details of real history, New York Times bestselling author 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.

During finals I got kind of obsessed with reading about Alexander the Great instead of studying. (bad choices I know) His life is pretty interesting and I was really into learning about him and his life. I'm excited to read this book since it is kind of based on Alexander with, of course, supernatural elements thrown in.

I'm excited to see how Eleanor Herman writes this story since this novel kind of has a lot of things that I love like Ancient Greece, Alexander the Great and fantasy! :D


Happy Reading!
