Waiting on Wednesday: 05/20/15

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

Legacy of Kings (Blood of Gods and Royals, #1)

Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman

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 fiancĂ©e, 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.

Why I'm Waiting: Although I'm extremely thankful for what I got, this was the one ARC that I wanted and didn't get at RT. It has a mix of historical fiction and fantasy and the gods and that is exactly the mix I'm looking for to aide in my historical fiction challenge. Plus, its a retelling and we all know how much I love those!

  1. Ooohhhh! Most intrigued with this one! So new to me but loving that cover! Is it morbid that the blood on the sword is getting me excited before I even read the cover description?! LOL!
