Because it's the season of giving.
Like most authors, I read -- a lot. Looking back at 2019, I did meet my goals on Goodreads: over 15,000 pages, spread across 50 books (pages more important, as GR lists short stories as "books" too).
Anyway. About a third of the books I read and reviewed are indie published. Most were good, but I'd like to draw your attention to a few exceptional ones. These are the ones where everything just comes together beautifully, from cover to story and everything in between.
The first two are both Epic Fantasy. The first focused on the individual swordsman, doing an amazing job of making the reader understand both historical combat and modern weapon-forging techniques. The second is a grand military-scale epic, that is both true to the real historical period backdrop and doesn't lose sight of the importance of relationships.
