Waiting on Wednesday: Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

So, I love fantasy and historical novels. I also love those two put together and this book is set in Ancient History and I'm hoping it will be fabulous! It's my WOW pick this week:

Legacy of Kings (Blood of Gods and Royals, #1)Legacy of Kings 
(Blood of Gods and Royals #1)
by Eleanor Herman
YA Urban Fantasy
Hardcover, 384 pages
August 25th 2015 by Harlequin Teen


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.

    Looks great... I got it through kindle unlimited! Thanks for the review!

  5. I definitely want to read this one. I hope you enjoy!

    Check out my WoW - Under the Lights!

  6. Aw, how fun! Glad you enjoyed this one, Tressa. Writing a romance - or any story, in novella length is tough. But I think Amber does a really nice job with this story. Plus, it's nice to have a NA story in the inspirational world. Those are kinda rare. :)

  7. OOOOH, this sounds fantastic, and I love the cover!

  8. Thanks! I haven't read any fiction about Alexander, so I'm really looking forward to it!

  9. Thanks, Grace! That is exactly how I feel. :)

  10. That one is on my list too.

  11. They're very rare. I feel like Jenny B. Jones' Parker series turned into NA for the last book and I loved it. I think there need to be a lot more of them.


I love comments! I try to read and reply to them all. Feel free to agree or disagree and generally share your thoughts with me.
