"Weis has skillfully written an ancient historical tale told primarily from Roxana’s viewpoint ... Roxana is an interesting historical figure to explore, but her fate is ultimately controlled by the ambitious men who surround her. Realm is an engaging historical with elements of steamy romance about Roxana’s impact on Alexander’s legacy." ~Historical Novel Society

"A riveting saga of a novel, author Alexandrea Weis' "Realm" is deftly written and thoroughly entertaining read from cover to cover. This is the stuff of which block-buster movies are made! Certain to be an immediate and enduringly popular addition to any community library's Historical Fiction collection." ~Midwest Book Review
