In Macedon, war rises like smoke, forbidden romance blooms and ancient magic tempered with rage threatens to turn an empire to dust 

After winning his first battle, Prince Alexander fights to become the ruler his kingdom demands—but the line between leader and tyrant blurs with each new threat. 

Meanwhile, Hephaestion, cast aside by Alexander for killing the wrong man, must conceal the devastating secret of a divine prophecy from Katerina even as the two of them are thrust together on a dangerous mission to Egypt. 

The warrior, Jacob, determined to forget his first love, vows to eradicate the ancient Blood Magics and believes that royal prisoner Cynane holds the key to Macedon's undoing. 

And in chains, the Persian princess Zofia still longs to find the Spirit Eaters, but first must grapple with the secrets of her handsome—and deadly—captor. 

New York Times bestselling author Eleanor Herman entwines the real scandals of history with epic fantasy to reimagine the world's most brilliant ruler, Alexander the Great, in the second book of the Blood of Gods and Royals series.


I saw this sequel on NetGalley & obviously.. I had to request! 😁 I dived into it just as I got it! Everything's just the same! Alexander & his fights! God they are just so cinematic! Katerina & Hephaestion! The bomb duo! Jacob is obviously a bitch! Zofia! I pity her! 😭 
Zofia was my most favourite character! Her bravery is just amazing! Cynane is well cynane! *rolls eyes* total Aghhh I hate her! I didn't found Alex & Katerina interesting this time instead Olympias was hot af this time TBH! 
Talking about the plot... it was pretty slow! It took me a long time to finish this book! The book was kinda dragging on! So i won't the say that the plot was hot like the first book! But still it was pretty good!
Overall, Historical Fiction readers! You don't wanna miss this series! Trust me!
Happy Reading! <3
