Why am I waiting…
So apparently Legacy of Kings comes out August 18th 2015, NOT
August 25th 2015.
I’m really excited to get my hands on this one! I’ve never read a book about Alexander the Great and it’s been awhile since I’ve read a historical fiction novel, luckily Eleanor Herman seems to be well known within the historical fiction genre. Also, that cover. BEAUTIFUL!!!
