As this season of Game of Thrones comes to an end and with little information about the release of Winds of Winter it’s time to find something to fill the void. Our suggestion is to read Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman.
The Legacy of Kings weaves magic into the salacious and violent details of real history. The story is based on the greatest emperor in the known world, Alexander the Great. Eleanor Herman is a historian who uses the real events from Greek history to craft a novel that is both infused with magic and filled with historical facts. This novel has everything a Game of Thrones fan could ask for in a book.
When discussing her book Herman said, “blending real history with the conversation, action, emotions and fantasy aspects of Legacy of Kings makes the story explosively exciting. I want readers to smell the blood on the battlefield, hear the delicate strumming of a lyre, feel the heat of an ancient Greek summer sun on their faces, see the beauty of the temples and palaces, and taste the dark wine, full of lees, poured from a red-and-black painted Greek vase.”
Here’s a look at how the characters from Legacy of Kings match up with those from Game of Thrones.
Let’s take a look at Zofia, one of the female leads who can best be compared to Daenerys. Even though she is engaged to Alexander, Zofia has a different plan for her future.
Legacy of Kings releases on August 25. To learn more about the novel and Eleanor Herman visit her website.
