TLC Book Tours Book Review: Realm

About Realm

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

When her homeland is conquered by the mighty Alexander the Great, Roxana—the daughter of a mere chieftain—is torn from her simple life and thrown into a world of war and intrigue.

Terrified, the sixteen-year-old girl of renowned beauty is brought before the greatest ruler the world has ever known. Her life is in his hands; her future his to decide.

Without formal education or noble blood, Roxana is chosen by the Greek conqueror to be his bride. Soon she comes to know profound happiness and unyielding desire in her warrior’s arms.

However, being the king’s consort comes at a heavy price. To survive her husband’s treacherous kingdom, she must endure continuous warfare, deadly plots, jealous rivals, victory-hungry generals, and the stigma of being a barbarian. Persian blood will keep her from claiming the grandest title of all—queen—but her reign will seal the fate of an empire.

History tells his story. This is hers.

Review:   I was drawn to this book because I love historical fiction. This is cross between fiction and historical romance.

Roxana is  strong woman of her time, perhaps too strong as you read it because she really does act a bit modern, not wanting marriage and wanting to do more manly things.

I don't know much about Alexander the Great, so this was a learning experience for me while reading. Its based on a true events but still a work of fiction and for me it was one that you couldn't put down

I really loved Roxana and her relationship with Alexander which was exceedingly complex.

I love how this gives you information about a lesser known person in history even though it's a fictional book. Very cool. Thanks for being on this tour! Sara @ TLC Book Tours
