Realm“Based on a true story.

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.

Looking for a well-developed YA Historical story? 

Realm is based on a true story surrounding the life of Alexander the Great and his first wife. We get to follow a strong female lead as she fights for herself and the attention of her conquering husband in the mostly, male-dominant society. She knows how to take care of herself while also striving for power and greatness. 

This story is fast-paced and features a ton of great world building. You really feel like you are there on the page through all the ups and downs.

There is passion, depth, strength, and love. I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. This is the perfect novel if you are looking for adventure diving deep inside history.

I feel like the author did a great job in conveying a well-researched world while also providing an enticing story for us to read.
