It reimagines the life of a young Prince Alexander before he became Alexander the Great. Filled with political intrigue and adventure this series brings the ancient Greek world alive with its rich historical detail, infusing it with myth and magic. The Last Epic Battle The realms of ancient Greece, Egypt, and Persia come to vivid life with rich historical detail as Herman intertwines myth and magic while reuniting Prince Alexander of Macedon with his friends in one last, epic stand against the Spirit Eaters. The Fates, a Palace of Gold and the Fabled Gordion Knot Once again, the story alternates between Prince Alexander and a cast of fascinating characters, each with their own viewpoints, moving the story into a broad sweep across empires as the last battle unfolds. As Prince Alexander searches for the Water of Life while trying to unravel the very threads of Fate, his travels will take him to the famous palace of King Midas and the unsolvable Gordian Knot where his path finally crosses with the runaway Persian Princess Zofia. Amazons, Spirit Eaters and Honey Bees While spying on the Aesarian Lords, Kat and Jacob uncover a horrible secret about the very nature of the Spirit Easters, while Princess Cynane is building an army of new Amazons yet, hiding her very identity as she trains these warrior women. In the Cimmerian forest, Joseph makes a discovery which nearly cost him his life, but can be used against the Persian army. Pegasus, the Muses, the Fountain of Youth and Threads of Fate Throughout the series, and especially in this concluding volume in the Blood of Gods and Royals series, we see Alexander, now a King, and those closest to him, not only battling forces of magic and monster, of war and political intrigue but against the invisible ties of the Fates themselves. The ending here especially brings them all together and I loved the conclusion the story takes. I will admit, that for those many threads and character's voices to finally come together, it took some patience as far as reading goes. Imagine four books later and you have a lot to recapture for your readers and closure to bring. In the End This series was everything I could have wanted for an inspired story about a young Alexander the Great. The ancient world and its history are brought to vivid life as Herman magically infuses it all with the legends and myths surrounding Alexander. Recommended for: I highly recommend this series to fans of the genre and readers fascinated by the legendary Alexander the Great. I will definitely be picking up more of Eleanor Herman's books!

Herman's series takes you on a thrilling journey following compelling protagonists and a plot full of twists and intrigue. Dawn of Legends wraps up the series, finally answering the question on how Alexander became just so Great. ​I was sent an early copy of this book to read and review honestly, so this is going to be an honest review for y’all. Also! Exciting, I’m again involved with a book tour to bring publicity to Dawn of Legends. I’ll attach the plan with dates at the bottom of this post so y’all can see all the different posts on different blogs :). Don’t forget to check back on Thursday the 28th to see a guest post on this blog! Back to the review. For those of you who don’t know, The Blood of Gods and Royals is a fantasy series about Alexander of Macedon in his a teenage years. The first book in the series is absolutely fantastic, and I highly recommend it, if you have yet to check it out. I have a review from a couple of years back— it’s called Legacy of Kings. If you have yet to even start the series, stop reading now! You’re about to enter spoiler territory for the last three books in my review of the fourth and final book. I have quite a few criticisms for Dawn of Legends, but let’s start out with the good, shall we? Or should I say great? The absolute best part of this book was its detail in the world. It would go in depth describing things that you wouldn’t even think of, painting a very realistic picture in the reader’s head. The world building touches all the senses. You really feel like you’re there, experiencing everything that the characters are. That was most definitely my favorite part— its intricate world. Now... On to my criticisms of the story. If I’m being completely honest, I had a lot of issues with the book. It’s always difficult to write a compelling finale, and unfortunately, Dawn of Legends fell short. Somehow Dawn of Legends managed to have a pacing of simultaneously feeling entirely too fast and too slow. Parts of the novel I just felt like were either unneeded, or moving much too snail-like for my taste, while vital, big moments seemed to just pass by in the blink of an eye. Problems were too easy to solve, sometimes feeling as if they were fixed in the next paragraph. All the answers were just too convenient— like two people just happening to run into each other in a vast world, when it became necessary for the plot. I couldn’t truly feel the height of the peril because most of the problems were resolved too quickly for me to even think of worrying about them. The writing also felt too obvious, as if the foreshadowing was laid down just a little too heavily. Maybe it’s because I read too much, but I knew everything that was going to happen due to the lack of subtlety in the writing. Another issue with the writing was that it summarized things that had already occurred in way too much detail. This came in handy when I forgot things that occurred in past books, but in the later part of the story there were paragraphs summarizing things that had literally occurred earlier in the book. I also felt detached from the story, which is never great when reading a novel. I don’t know if this was due to the writing style, the characters, the plot or a mixture of all three, but I just couldn’t dive into the story in the way in which I would’ve liked to. The choice of point of views for vital moments was a little off, too. For instance, a reunion that I’ve been waiting many, many books to see was told from the point of view of not one of the two characters and also didn’t even show the reunion moment. Needless to say I was a bit disappointed about that. And my last big issue was more on me than on the book itself, but there were just too many point of views in this book that I just could not bring myself to care about in the slightest. Going in the only characters I was super invested in were Kat, Alex, Heph, and Jacob. I knew I’d have to deal with points of view from Cyn and Zofia, but what I was not anticipating was the plethora of other POVS shown throughout the book. But like I said before, that wasn’t exactly a writing issue, it was more on me. A more minor issue is that I was disappointed in the amount of scenes some characters got together— for example, Kat and Alex have quite possibly my favorite relationship in the book, and I would’ve loved to see more of that now that Alex is Alex but sadly, they’re hardly in any scenes together. All in all, I hate to say it but Dawn of Legends was not the finale I hoped for. It fell short of my expectations. I would have to give it 4-5/10 stars, it was not a very fun read for me. Again, I’d like to state that I was totally in love with the first book and (most of) the characters it introduced. It’s plot was intriguing and it felt well written. Perhaps the reason Dawn of Legends doesn’t contain the same magic as Legacy of Kings (for me, at least) is because the writing style on a bigger scale just didn’t give enough sense of peril, which lead to my disinterest or lack of connection with the characters and plot. Synopsis: Prince Alexander of Macedon has battled both men and monsters, but his final war will determine his fate…and the future of all mankind. While Macedon’s enemies close in from all corners of the earth, Alexander must fulfill one last prophecy that dictates only he—and he alone—can ensure humanity’s survival against the age of the deadly Spirit Eaters. As the threads of fate draw Alexander closer to his destiny, an exiled queen will meet a runaway princess, a young sorceress will set the final path of her heart and generals will choose their final battles. Before the light of victory can shine, enemies must become allies, Death must be tamed and hearts must break. Who will rise and who will die? All is revealed in the epic finale to New York Times bestselling author Eleanor Herman’s rich and fantastical Blood of Gods and Royals series. QUICK SPOILERS. DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE NOVEL. I was extremely disappointed and annoyed with Kat during this novel. Usually she’s one of my favorite characters, but her whole “choice” thing with Heph and Jacob was just getting on my nerves. Seriously, both boys proposed to her and she’s still unsure and just going with it on both. Then when she actually chose, I didn’t feel it. It didn’t feel real or intense to me. Honestly, a lot about Jacob and Kat was disappointing for me during this novel. I didn’t get to see their reunion at all, or even feel some of it because it was during Heph’s POV, and then their slowly falling back in love and connecting was just explained, instead of shown to me. I didn’t actually get to feel their relationship, it was just basically summarized. The ending of the novel was still bittersweet for me. It had a total Eragon vibe. Kat leaves, and will probably never to see Alex again ( :( ). The rest of the ending was all happy endings, which was fine, and Alex is set on his journey to become the Great. Anyway, thanks for reading and don’t forget to follow the book tour! -Anj

    Wow, this was disappointing. I had such high hopes and now I’m sad. This book just fell so unbelievably flat for me. I used to sing praises for this series, loving how it was so different from everything I’ve read before. Loving how diverse the characters were, how exciting the plot was, how many surprising twists and turns we went through on the way. And yet, there was none of that in this book.

Not to mention how it’s been over a year since reading the previous book and forgetting everything, nothing about this book was memorable. First of all, the story has evolved into one that had far too many POVs and intertwined way too many plot lines which ultimately caused the overall story to suffer. I began to care less and less about what was happening to majority of the characters and by then end I didn’t care at all. There was also this habit of having a POV for a character maybe once and then never hearing from them again which makes me wonder why we wasted time on them in the first place. I feel like whatever I used to love about my favourite characters was essentially obliterated here: Hephaestion became whiney, Katerina lost her spunk, and there was nothing all that great about Alexander anymore. And don’t get me started on what Cynane did and how the whole idea of only men can be powerful was the only point in her character’s story anymore. This book made me want to scream so much. I have no idea how I can read three books and love them all just to get to this disastrous finale. Ugh, I’m just so angry I wasted my time on this disappointment.

Together, their paths crisscross in this fourth and final installment of the magnificent series, The Blood of Gods and Royals. I had the highest of expectations with DAWN OF LEGENDS and it sure does not disappoint. I am very happy and satisfied with the series as a whole. Only, I wished Herman had given us a drawn-out recap instead of the brief remarks we got in the beginning chapters. Still, instead of a long recap of previous novels, Herman dived right into the story of the conclusion to The Blood of Gods and Royals series. Herman gives us some new chapters from perspectives we haven't read from before which is a bit daunting at first because the cast of this series is so huge! However, each chapter easily flows into the next in chronological order so it is quite easy to follow along despite such a large cast of characters. Each of their stories intertwine one way or another --- which is different from previous books when they all seemed to be separate from the other. When they all connect, structured works so seamlessly. From LEGACY OF KINGS to DAWN OF LEGENDS, it isn’t hard to find that in each new book, Herman's writing steadily blossomed into an epic, storytelling masterpiece that readers will want to read again and again. Once again, it is hard to ignore the masterful way Herman writes battle scenes. The tactics and strategies that arise are absolutely genius. If Herman wasn’t an author, I would think her a magnificent queen of her own palace that constantly wars with neighboring cities. Herman uses mythology and other Greek tales to parallel alongside the characters' ideas and actions. Sure, it shows readers that these ideas been done before but I think in doing so really captures the essence of the story. It is, after all, a re-imagining of Alexander the Great. It also is believable as these characters have also grown up with knowing these tales and of course, they would implement some in their daily lives. Herman puts Heph and Alexander on a path I certainly didn't see coming. There was absolutely nothing leading up to this new development. I had always loved their relationship because it was two remarkable close friends who would do anything for each other. In DAWN OF LEGENDS, Herman changed the dynamic --- like she was doing for lots of the other relationships too --- and flipped their friendship upside down. This new dynamic Heph and Alexander had didn't last very long though as in the end, it is not mentioned again as if the whole relationship was forgotten. The Cynane and Pyrolithos dynamic is, also, very interesting and at times confusing as they now share one body. Readers get two different perspectives from both a female and male point of view which makes such a unique reading experience. Readers have been seeing this brew for quite a while but the love triangle seems much more prominent in this book as the characters are constantly moving away or toward a certain character. The scenes of pining for each other’s arms emphasize their bond but making it into a triangle was rather unnecessary as Kat herself seems uninterested in becoming too serious with anyone. This is rather unfortunate since she basically strings these two along and it's completely unfair to do so. Arridheus' character arc has been a long time coming. He's rarely mentioned but his chapters are always so riveting. His story is extremely compelling and it’s upsetting that other characters have been given up looking for the missing prince. In DAWN OF LEGENDS, we get an entirely different Arridheus than the one we have met before and this new development truly reflects what he has been through during these four books. Near the end, there are several time jumps. It is realistic in its chronology but it does put gaps in the story that I wish were filled. Since this is the finale, I only wished we received a bit more explanation on to the characters’ choices as it seemed the Fates and their destinies had it all mapped out for them. The jumps truly make the ending feel a bit rushed which is terribly upsetting because I could stay in this series forever. With every book in this series thus far, readers will not want to miss the Author’s Note. Readers can certainly tell when extensive research has been done and it is most clear that Herman has gone all out for DAWN OF LEGENDS. It is so interesting to also learn what elements of her plot was taken from historical facts and what was of her own making. DAWN OF LEGENDS is the finale of The Blood of Gods and Royals series. It truly leaves readers on an epic note. Herman ties every loose end up, going through each and every character and finishing their story. Some stories were sad and heartbreaking, some were adorable and happy but all of them were satisfactory. Overall, DAWN OF LEGENDS was an epic finale to the series. This wonderful re-imagining of Alexander the Great once again wows readers with its fantastical elements, extensive cast of characters and action-packed plot. Reviewed by Jeanna Michel

At times, the variety of perspectives gets confusing and jumbled, although I appreciate that the author doesn't skimp on details and allows for richer storytelling. With that said, I struggled with how fickle the romantic relationships were. Kat was initially one of my favorite characters, but in this book, she was too indecisive. I wasn't satisfied with the endings for some characters, but overall most loose ends were tied up. I received an e-copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

She was a childhood friend growing up within the same household, only family he has since, his parents and siblings were killed.

I was so hoping for Heph and Kat to get together as the end. Alex ending was prefect in my mind.

My favorite character was always Alex, and from what I could tell as I skimmed the last hundred or so pages of the book , everyone ends up happily ever after, (view spoiler)[ except Jacob apparently dies, Kat chooses Jacob (the whole love triangle thing got on my nerves), Heph gets married, Alex and Zofia have/had a thing? Like he asked her to marry him and she turned him down? Idk guys. I’m not the best source of info, considering I DNF at 63% It wasn’t a bad book, you guys, it really wasn’t.

Though I’d definitely recommend reading all the books one after the other since anyone reading these boooks after me no longer has to wait for a whole YEAR no I’m not salty .

    I'm a little bummed that I didn't love any of the books in the series as much as the first one. In this book the love triangle really started to grate. And Kat, who was once my favourite character, kind of got on my nerves. But this was still a really interesting book and I enjoyed it a lot! I love all the history and how everything weaves together. The author's note at the end was a great read!

    * OK, this is my fault for starting on book 4. For the most part, I had no trouble following along, but I suspect I would have got much more out of it had I read the previous 3 books and been invested in the characters. Nevertheless, it's well written and appealing. * I received a free copy of the book in a Goodreads giveaway.

    I loved this series. The characters were real, the scenery was magnificent, the story was great. I was never big on history, but if history was taught the way she introduces it in the acknowledgements, I think more people would enjoy it.

    Wow. Just WOW! I was so excited to see how this series would end and it kind of blew me away, now that I've read it. The way Herman writes this story through like 10 different perspectives is so well done becuase that could easily end in disaster and confusion. Each book added a couple more perspectives, and somehow she figured out how to make this feel perfectly normal. The complicated story lines Herman weaves throughout this series require views from multiple perspectives to really understand Wow. Just WOW!

I have never seen Outlander, but I did recently start watching Game of Thrones, so I totally see her influence there in the intense battle scenes. In my interview with Herman last year, she mentioned that GOT influenced her writing, but that she didn't get quite as graphic in this series (the blood and gore being in writing rather than visual certainly helps with that). However, heads are rolling in this series, the villains are ruthless, and Herman's characters are tested time and time again.
