It's not on here, but I really enjoyed Book 1 of "The Villorian Chronicles: The Mage's Apprentice" by Cobalt.

Synopsis: Queen Meliantha needs to find a new female apprentice with enough magical potential to teach. Local peasant Ferand has wanted all of his life to one day become a strong and noble Villorian Knight. Only one of them is going to get what they want...

Quick statistic: Word count is 113,876 within 21 chapters. Published: 06/27/18
Link to story: Book 1 of The Villorian Chronicles

And, yeah, this is a Gender Bender with Politics, Medieval Fantasy, and War. In my opinion, pretty nifty stuff, and it totally surprised me how everything turned out. :blob_popcorn:

Home turf I would have to say Reincarnated Vampire wants to enjoy her life. Surprisingly good novel, maybe one day the author could get it published.

Outside of home turf would be This one. Surprisingly good as well. A lot of work went into this one.

Worldwide it has to be my novel Providence of Wisdom /s. Jk mine is total thrash.
Thank you for mentioning secret organization. I've never heard of it but it sounds so interesting!


For me, I wouldn't say I have a favorite novel of the year. But I'm currently reading and enjoying The Crystal Shard by R. A. Salvatore. I tried reading his first trilogy but I found the premise, characters, and settings completely uninteresting. I'm a fan of fantasy novels and I've been looking for something with a D&D feel, with a party of adventurers seeking action and treasure in a fantasy world. But I haven't been able to find anything truly interesting to me.

Aching God and Kings of the Wyld were close. I loved their settings that felt exactly like D&D, but I felt their mostly human characters to be boring. And the old man going back for one last time schtick felt, idk, tired and bland?

There are multiple protagonists in The Crystal Shard and each with their own interesting personalities and motivations. And the plot, it is so seemingly boring and conventional, but it's done in such an interesting way; an evil wizard raising an army of goblins and orcs against a town of humans and dwarves. I absolutely love it. They build it up and pace it extremely well, really earning the plot developments.

And near the start, one of the characters, a halfing, has this seemingly cheat item, but the plot shifts and changes in a way that punishes the halfing severely for using the cheat item. I loved how organic and sensible it was.

I believe that's all I can say without spoiling anything major, but if anyone hasn't already read it and thinks that it may interest them then I wholeheartedly recommend it. Though people probably don't read much western novels here.

I am currently fond of a novel named 'The novel's Mob' by Lycan. It is a great novel with amazing character development. You may read it if you have time. It is currently posted on scribble hub and webnovel.
