Waiting on Wednesday: Legacy of Kings (Bloods of Gods and Royals #1) by Eleanor Herman

My TBR list is always growing and I thought it would be fun to share my anticipation for those books with all of you. This is not my own original meme; it belongs to Breaking the Spine. It specifically spotlights upcoming releases. As it implies in the title, I'll be posting this meme on Wednesdays. Please feel free to comment and let me know what books you guys are waiting on as well!

Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Expected Publication Date: August 25, 2015
Pre-order it: Amazon | Barnes & Noble |

Synopsis: 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.

I love fiction novels based on real events in our history. Perhaps one of the things that kept me awake in all of my history courses is taking the information I was given and changing them into movies in my head. Therefore, I love books and movies that have done just that. Legacy of Kings seems like it's going to fit in that category. It has been described to me as Game of Thrones but with some extremely hot guys. Who can say no to that? Not me, that's for sure.

I was lucky enough to be able to get my hands on a physical ARC of this at BEA, so I'm not actually having to wait on this one for long. Eleanor was gracious enough to let me take this picture of her at BEA for this post.

Don't you guys just love her outfit? Be sure to check out the links below for more information about this author and Legacy of Kings.
