"Readers who love myth and magic will devour it!"

"Fantasy just the way I like it."

—Cinda Williams Chima, New York Times bestselling author of The Seven Realms series

Fantasy, magic, royalty and danger swirl together in Voice of Gods, the ebook prequel to Legacy of Kings by New York Times bestselling author Eleanor Herman!

As the end of an age approaches, gods whisper horrors, families scheme for power and one woman may hold the secret to a lost legacy.

At nineteen, Ada of Caria yearns to take the Snake Blood throne from her mad older siblings. She seeks the help of a young orphaned girl named Helen, the first True Oracle to have walked the earth in more than three hundred years.

Helen may be able to channel the voice of the gods, but she hates her gift and will do anything to get rid of it—even lie to her best friend, Myrtale, the priestess-princess of Epirus who is destined to marry King Philip II of Macedon even though she loves another.

And in the shadows lurks a handsome green-eyed stranger who has more at stake—and more to lose—than anyone could possibly imagine.

Amid jealousy and heartbreak, torrid affairs and secret rendezvous, it is spoken by the gods that either Helen or Myrtale—newly named Olympias—will carry the destiny of the known world within her womb.

The prequel to Legacy of Kings, Voice of Gods traces the intricate web of love and betrayal that led up to the birth of history's most powerful leader, Alexander the Great.

Voice of Gods by Eleanor Herman is a prequel novella to her Blood of Gods and Royals series - Legacy of Kings being the first official one. Interestingly enough, I read novella's very rarely, but I really wanted to read Voice of Gods because I wanted to return to this particular world (I had read Legacy of Kings beforehand). And right at the start I instantly felt back at home in the world. The writing sucked me right in and I had absolutely no problems envisioning the world that the words were creating in my mind. Voice of Gods, being a prequel novella, takes place before the Legacy of Kings story line happens. It is actually mostly the story of Helen and of Olympias - of how they came to be who they were as the reader will come to know them later in Legacy of Kings. Now, I read Voice of Gods long after I read Legacy of Kings, so I was continually trying to remember how things in this story were relating to what I had read back then. Who characters were, the relationships between them, etc. It wasn't very easy to do sometimes, but then again, not all of these characters were present in Legacy of Kings. Voice of Gods is told from a couple of different point of views, however, there were not nearly as many as I encountered when I read Legacy of Kings...which was nice especially since this story line was much shorter. It would have been hard to get to know too many different story tellers in a novella, so I am thankful that Eleanor Herman kept it at a minimum in her novella. The whole time I read Voice of Gods I had kept my eyes open for spoilers for Legacy of Kings, and I am happy to report that I don't think I came across any. We, the readers, simply got to understand how certain older characters got to where they were for the time that Legacy of Kings goes through. Eleanor Herman did a great job keeping her story under wraps while giving us an introduction to this world! Also, you don't have to feel like you have to read the novella, but I do think it makes some things that happen in Legacy of Kings a bit more clear and I appreciated it. I kind of wish I had read it before I had read Legacy of Kings, but it definitely is not necessary to do so. Reading it later one while waiting for the next book, Empire of Dust, to release allowed me to visit a world that I had been missing.

Wish it was a full novel once I started reading. Story truncated but still decently entertaining.
