Blood Song

Blood Song - Anthony  Ryan Simply the best indie book I have read. In the beginning of the book we are introduced to a character who is held captive by people despising him - he conquered their lands unprovoked and killed a well-liked heir to the Emperor. Fate brought a historian to him who became interested in how this person became Empire's enemy number 1. The book is the story of a child who would eventually grow up to lead an army to bring a war to a neutral nation.

There are two reasons I did not give 5 stars to this book. First, the plot is very slow-moving at some points, at least for me. Second, I am not sure the direction the next book would take. Still, my recommendation is - buy this book now, it is well worth it.
