“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”

I love fantasy, so I’m always excited to find new fantasy books being release. I’m particularly excited about this book, because it was written by a historian and I think that will give the details of this book a feeling of realness that will make it very interesting to read.  Also, I’m intrigue to see how the author reimagines the story of Alexander the Great, and how all the other characters that are described in the synopsis come into play.  I can’t wait to read it!

  1. This sounds really interesting. I'm usually quite wary of books that feature actual historic figures, which may be because I graduated with a degree in History haha. But this does sound like an interesting mix of fact and fiction so I'm definitely intrigued.


  2. I am definitely interested in this book. I didn't know it was written by a historian, that should make things a bit more accurate – for lack of a better word. I had almost forgotten about this book, too, even though I've been waiting to hear more reviews before I commit myself to buying it.


  3. I'm super excited for this book too! I love that the book is historical but has a fantasy twist to it, and I've always wanted to know more about Alexander the Great. Great pick!
