Legacy of Kings
by Eleanor Herman

Weaving the fantasy appeal of Game of Thrones with the shocking details of real history, New York Times bestselling author of Sex with Kings Eleanor Herman reimagines the greatest emperor the world has ever known, Alexander the Great, in book one of the Blood of Gods and Royals series.

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, Macedon’s sixteen-year-old heir, is on the brink of discovering his fated role in conquering the known world, but finds himself drawn to a newcomer…

Katerina must navigate the dark secrets of court life while keeping her own mission hidden: kill the queen. But she doesn't account for her first love…

Jacob will go to unthinkable lengths to win Katerina, even if it means competing 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.
I heard about this one for the first time a couple of weeks ago, while scrolling through Goodreads and I'm really intrigued by it. One of my closest friends loves Alexander the Great, and keeps telling me to read Mary Renault's fictional trilogy following his character (I believe the main events of the trilogy are historically accurate).
This one, however, throws in something a little extra in that it has a nice fantasy twist. It sounds utterly epic, so I really can't wait to get it on my shelves and give it a read! This is definitely going on the Christmas wishlist!

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)
