Magic in Ancient Macedonia
In Legacy of Kings, Eleanor Herman brings her prowess as a historian and storyteller to the world of ancient Macedonia where a young Alexander the Great is poised to take the throne.
I have always loved ancient history and mythology, and I love a well done alternate history. In many ways, this book was meant for me. Told through a number of perspectives, the book follows several characters on their roads to self-discovery.
Filled with magic, political drama, curses, and journeys but rooted in real places and events, Legacy of Kings is a great pick for both fantasy lovers and history lovers. I enjoyed seeing how Ms. Herman incorporated the mythology and personalities of the ancient world into her fictional version of events.
I enjoyed the audio version. Graham Halstead narrates for the male characters' chapters, and Jennifer Grace narrates for the female characters' chapters. I will listen to the sequels.
