Realm ~ Alexandrea Weis

May 25, 2019

Paperback: 383 pages
• Publisher: Vesuvian Books (May 14, 2019)

Roxana is just a teenager when Alexander the Great takes over her home and she has no choice but to submit to the invading forces.

She is brought to the conquering Alexander to learn her decided fate, which she is not hopeful about, given her stark background with no education and no wealth whatsoever.

Much to her surprise, she is taken as a bride by Alexander, catapulting her life path toward fame and glory.

Glamorous as the job sounds, stepping as the Kong’s consort is far from easy…or safe.

Roxana soon learns that she must contend with threats from every angle, making her life far harder than it would have been has she struggled along in mediocre oblivion.

I read this book shortly after finishing Game of Thrones and there are so many parallels to a certain mother of dragons. Though this book is mostly historically accurate while Martin’s is fictional, it did make me wonder if Dany was modeled after Roxana.

Over all, a fabulous and adventurous story. Definitely a good one for plunging into the start of summer if you’re up for some fallen (and reclaimed) kingdoms.
