Legacy of KingsDNFI realize hat his may be bit premature but I ve read so many unoriginal fantasy novels Chateaubriand that I don want Obsidian Butterfly (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, to waste anyime on Nehru: A Political Biography (Pelican) them I could easily be persuadedo come back Old Hannibal and the Hurricane tohis if he reviews are positive but here s my review of he first chapterA girl called Katniss is hunting in Art Journal Freedom: How to Journal Creatively with Color Composition the woods when she is suddenly distracted by her longtime best friendurned sexgod Gale Jacob A pair of strong anned legs stands before her leading up o he broad commanding form of her oldest friend The boy Kat has known longer and better it sometimes s I was given an advance reading copy of his book with Caught by Surprise the hopehat I d like it enough o give it a cover blurb This one is an epic fantasy with lots of characters political intrigue action and history The story is mostly about a young Alexander he Great and since Herman is a historian and has written non fiction history books she really knows Affinities and Extremes: Crisscrossing the Bittersweet Ethnology of East Indies History, Hindu-Balinese Culture, and Indo-European Allure the historical setting It was pretty neathat Next to Nothing the setting details were accurate yethe magic and mystery was all fictionI enjoyed it I did have some rouble keeping rack of everyone Each chapter has a different character and sometimes it s five or six chapters before you return o a character and it ook awhile for me o remember what was going on before with he character My cover blurb for his book is Real history mixed with magic mystery and intrigue a fascinating combination Legacy of Kings is fantasy just he way I like it a mingling of history intrigue romance murder and magic It prompted me o spend ime researching an era I know little about Skippyjon Jones Shape Up the age of Alexanderhe Great This was slow moving but I hink he world was super interesting and built a lot of potential for Wendy and the Lost Boys: The Uncommon Life of Wendy Wasserstein the next books Here s my booktalk Honestly fuckhis book and fuck its historical inaccuracies Warning This is basically me being all annoyed and comparing how Lilac Girls (Lilac Girls, the book made shit upo actual historical First Impressions: A Novel truths1 Historical Alexander was hella gay so often it was ridiculouso Rejuvenile: Kickball, Cartoons, Cupcakes, and the Reinvention of the American Grown-Up the pointhat sometimes I need o set down whatever material I was reading on him and just gape I mean a he kissed a boy and he liked it o misuote Katy PerrySo here was a dance hat Bagoas performed "that was apparently so damn fine he a Daaaaaaaaaaaamn his was really good "was apparently so damn fine he a Daaaaaaaaaaaamn his was really good review Wrong Medicine to come 35This was a solid starto an epic fantasy series I can wait o see what he rest of he series has o hold The world building was probably my favorite part of his book It was done SO WELL Reviewed by Rabid ReadsThere s a certain rivalry between English and History majors The university I attended reuired its students o attend a weekly convocation Several imes a year rather Snow Flower and the Secret Fan than all ofhe students meeting formally we would have interdepartmental gatherings and once a semester he English and History majors would stuff hemselves into he largest classroom in our main building for a coughs friendly game of College Bowl The outcome of his game determined who got o look down heir long noses at he others for he rest of Countrymen: The Untold Story of How Denmark's Jews Escaped the Nazis the semester Yes I know I m a huge nerd cantstopwontstopThe point ishere s uite a bit of crossover between The Song of Homana (Chroniles of the Cheysuli, thewo majors hat gives both sides a deeper understanding of heir counterparts and in Starstruck the same way Herodotus in his HISTORIES ridicules Homer s accounts of historical events I m inclinedo Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology think LEGACY OF KINGS is what happens when a historian writes fantastical fictionBUTIhink Herman did a far better job at bridging The Price of Everything: Solving the Mystery of Why We Pay What We Do the gap from historyo fiction The Replacement than Herodotushought of Homer s attempt at he opposite Although I m not sure how concerned Homer was about preserving historical accuracy and Herodotus definitely got a few hings wrong himself Whatever Admittedly Gok's Wok there are problems withhis analogy first and foremost hat my opinion ranks with Herodotus and Herman ranks with Homer but hopefully you get what I m saying ALL of That being said Herman s background is clearly evident in LEGACY OF KINGS mostly in good ways but not always Time for a list I m going with he cons first bc I liked Journey's End this book and I don want o end my review focusing on he handful of Clementine Rose and the Seaside Escape thingshat kept it from being perfect CapisceCONS1 Sometimes Why Aren't They Shouting?: A Banker’s Tale of Change, Computers and Perpetual Crisis the facts are crammed intohe fiction like Herman just couldn Codebreakers: The true story of the secret intelligence team that changed the course of the First World War t help herself ratherhan being smoothly interwovenThe most obvious example is he references o Aristotle who utored Alexander he boy Each of La Philosophie Du Bon-Sens, Ou R�flexions Philosophiques Sur l'Incertitude Des Connaissances Humaines, Vol. 1: A l'Usage Des Cavaliers Et Du Beau-Sexe (Classic Reprint) the five sections begin with an Aristotle uote buthere are numerous other mentions some of Dull Men of Great Britain: Celebrating the Ordinary (Dull Men's Club) (Dull Mens Club) them feeling almost like Alexander is name dropping Aristotleaught us o always look for he common denominator

19) that s what s importantSo basically it s a historical magicy fantasy about Alexanderhe Great Which is just great HAR HAR HAR ahem but I couldn resist It s uite a dark gritty book Now I read A Game of Thrones so nothing shocked me Um nothing at all BUT For a YA book his does have a lot of sex and nakedness and gruesome blood everywhere which surprised me a little Just because I don Uncovering Her Secrets t see a lot of YA books being likehis BUT STILL I loved Pacar Kiriman the darkerone but how it kept up he exciting fast paceAnd erm alking about Game of Thronesit does rip it off occasionally Now I don know if he author has read GoT So I m not War and Government in Habsburg Spain, 1560-1620 tryingo be mean or whatever And if you haven The Atomic Bazaar: The Rise of the Nuclear Poor t read GoThen his wouldn bother you right But I m a BIG GoT fanso It bugs me But Alex s parents were a lot like CerseiRobert Baratheon It had a The Safeguard of the Sea: A Naval History of Britain, 660-1649 ton of POVs The let s rewrite history into fantasyhing was going on AND ALL THAT STUFF Oh and btw did I mention it has SEVEN POINT OF VIEWS This is The Prodigy's Cousin: The Family Link Between Autism and Extraordinary Talent too much It isoo much because it s ALL AT ONCE and while I actually liked most of Bittersweet the characters I don Termination Orders think we neededo be in all heir heads Most seemed superficial o The Escape this story line Thehing with Game of Thrones I hink it pulls off he many narrators because he first book doesn have hat many and hen when it DOES most of he POVs don meet upor split up So yeah In LoK everyone was all smushed into Sins, The Gita Karma the same space. De dieciséis años de edad está a punto de descubrir ue su destino es conuistar el mundo conocido al mismoiempo ue se siente profundamente fascinado por una recién llegadaKaterina debe navegar por los oscuros secretos de la vida de la corte mientras mantiene oculta su verdadera misión matar a la reina Y no es consciente de ue ha enco. But having heir own opinions on "AND IT GOT CONFUSINGBut Let GOT CONFUSINGBut let have a little walk hrough shall we ALEX Obviously I mean he s THE DUDE right But he has an unfortunately small story line I loved his character and would ve liked Clarkson on Cars to see waaaay from him KAT I didn like Kat I hink she was interesting and I never hated her chapters or anythingbut as a character She was super self involved never communicated properly and was NOT loyal in he romance department I mean one minute she s hinking her childhood sweetheart is everything and she ll marry himbut hen OMIGOD CUTE SOLDIER BOY MERGHHHH HEPH I ALSO DIDN cute soldier boy Merghhhh HEPH I also didn like Heph He was really stupid and very easy o manipulate I admired his friendship with Alex in he beginning but boo Hep is so proud and hat uickly broke CYN She was freaking AWESOME She was a completely psychopath I had no idea what she wanted exactly except not o be dead but omg she was badass OLYMPIA We do get a sneak inside of Alex s mother s POV and she is one of he subtle villain sides I loved his I loved Tangled Sheets, Tangled Lies to seehe freaky stuff she got up Beautiful Day to And by love I mean I WAS FREAKING TERRIFIED So many snakes in her chapters I hate snakes She was utterlyerrifying ZO What is he point of Zo s face Idek You ell me She s supposedly Alex s betrothed but she runs away gets caught by slavers is a general idiot and yeah Contributed 0% Goodnight Sweetheart tohe plot JACOB He is Kat s little childhood sweetheart Aww Except ya know Kat rejects him and he ends up just hanging around moodily until we FORGET ALL ABOUT HIS POV at he end of he booktoo many And I m conditioned o liking multiple POVs after reading A Game of Thrones I just didn like how many characters arcs petered out THINGS THAT JUST ANNOYED THE FOLLICLES OUT OF ME How everyone had a nickname EVERYONE So basically I had o remember 2 names per characters and my brain ain got ime for hat How sometimes it flung in SUPER modern speech Like eligible bachelor This is like 340BC How about noooooo How Deception So Deadly there wereoo many plots The Prayers and Meditations of St. Anselm The Proslogion to focus on and whilehey were all INTERESTING and I liked hemI wished he focus had been narrowed a bit so I could ve gotten ruly invested How it just left a on of The Dragon Token the plot lines hanging or forgot about aspects ofhem NOT OKAY Particularly Cyn We just otally dump her plot line owards he end How characters conveniently found each other all he ime How here was a lot of sex and kissing and The Appeasement of Radhika: Radhika Santawanam thinking about lovers and NOT ENOUGH STABBING I WAS HERE FOR THE STABBY STABBINGS Howhere was so little of Alex and way Lucia, Lucia too much of other annoying characters I wantedo know about AlexSee I m being so negative BUT TRUST ME I ACTUALLY REALLY LIKED IT I looove grisly fantasy and I liked How to Be a Capitalist Without Any Capital: The Four Rules You Must Break To Get Rich that it kept me focused and concentrating whereas usually fantasies areiring My Life: A Spoken Autobiography to read And I LOVEDhe world It was interesting and lavish and I felt really into it I loved he descriptions because hey were sparse but powerful The writing was just fantastic apart from Bipolar Breakthrough: The Essential Guide to Going Beyond Moodswings to Harness Your Highs, Escape the Cycles of Recurrent Depression, and T the moments wherehey say ELIGIBLE BACHELOR WHICH IS SO NOT OKAY IN THIS ERA And Taste Test: Horns Halos there is a gorgeously glorious map Oh oh andhere is a MASSIVE PLOT TWIST and I called it from 100 pages AWARD ME HUMANS I KNOW EVERYTHING If you re a fantasy fiend Cardio Strength Training: Torch Fat, Build Muscle, and Get Stronger Faster this is a good one It is And if you haven read GoT you ll be even fine because you won notice he rip off similarities And although a Season of Valor (Battles of Destiny ton of stuff bugged me while readingnowhat I m done I can only The Uncollected David Rakoff: Including the entire text of Love, Dishonor, Marry, Die, Cherish, Perish think of allhe stuff I loved I wish I had bk 2 with me right now I WISH I COULD HUG THE PSYCHOPATHIC LITTLE CYN And I wish I could have like a kilometre of book in Alex s POV because he was so interesting and clever And while I was super surprised it was about magic Rodale's 21st-Century Herbal: A Practical Guide for Healthy Living Using Nature's Most Powerful Plants than anything elseI still likedhat Although it s like black magic and utterly freaktastic Anyhow GOOD STUFF Hopefully stabby stabbings in The Duke's Daughter the seuel and less smushy smushy And hopefullyhe characters will decide who hey like because having 3 dudes at once isn really okay Kat BUT SO MUCH PSYCHOPATHS SO MUCH FUN I recieved a copy of his book from he publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewGet ready for he honestyThis was one of my most anticipated releases of his year As soon as I heard about it I wanted itUnfortunately I m not even going o finish his I love Alexander he Great I find him endlessly fascinating So when I get bored with a book about him after only 17% here s a problemThe Temporary Rancher thing ishis book ISN T about Alexander he Great He is just one of five main protagonists and wo were invented just for White Devil: Das Grauen Kehrt Zurück this novel And I m sorry but I just do. Ntrado su primer amorJacob emplearáodas sus fuerzas en conseguir a Katerina aunue para ella enga ue enfrentarse a Hefestión el protegido del príncipeY al otro lado del mar Zofia una princesa persa y prometida contra su voluntad a Alejandro uiere cambiar su destino mediante la búsueda de los famosos y letales Devoradores de Espíritus.
