Welcome to the Pre-Squee, a new weekly feature here at the Bookworms and at The Book Swarm. Some books, though they might not be coming out for a few months, need an early squee — we just can’t hold in our excitement about them! Sure, we’ll do full reviews closer to the release date but this feature gives us a chance to share a little bit of our love, whether it be for the story, cover, characters, or whatever. We’re quite flexible in our book love.
So today we Squee about
Legacy of Kings
Series: Blood of Gods and Royals #1
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.
Everyone who loves Fantasy Listen Up! This book is FANTASTIC! It’s epic, it mixes a little bit of historical fiction ( A 16 year old Alexander The Great) with wonderful, imaginative magical elements and creates an incredible setting! This is one of these books that just deserve the label epic as it is full of a rich, deep cast of characters that keep growing and… I just feel that we are just at the early beginning of this legendary story.
So … pre-order, add them to your lists and keep your eyes open for legacy of Kings coming in August!!
