Review Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman

Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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.

Game of Thrones + Greek Mythology+ Magic = THIS BOOK.

Since a few days ago, I wanted to read this book and you know what ... I REALLY like it.


This book is epic, fun and really good. I'm pleased that this book have ACTUAL historical reference and it's a retelling Alexander the Great(even thought that I haven't read about him but probably will do at the end of this review).

I am very glad that in this book that females are fierce and willing to do anything they want. And the males are not mean and they are strong. 

Story: Is totally different between the main characters, every single character have their own ambitions and goals and differs between each other but pretty much in the synopsis tells you everything you need to know about it to begin with the book.
Characters: In this book we have 7 main characters: Katerina, Alexander, Cynane, Jacob, Zofia, Hephaestion and Olympias.
Narrative: It's a steady and in third person, between the 7 main characters.
Setting: In 336 BC in both Macedonia and Persia, in which the Greek mythology and magic exist.
Cover: Really PRETTY.

CONCLUSION: I really like it, it was epic like Game of Thrones but with Alexander The Grea (not like a good fan fiction of the British history like GoT) and in an actual place which I really like.

And now pretty much I have to wait until September of 2016 to know what is going to happen next.

Really ?!?!?!


THAT'S TO FARR!!!!!!!!!!!!


READ THE BOOK !!!! You will not regret reading it!!!!!!!!
