Book Review: New World: a Frontier Fantasy Novel by Steven W. White

It’s book review time. Before I get to my review, here’s the low down on the book:

New World: a Frontier Fantasy Novel

Format read in: Kindle

Price at time of purchase: $0.00

Price now: Kindle $0.00 (Amazon)

Genre: Fantasy, Science Fiction

Goodreads synopsis:

Across the sea lies a newly discovered continent, a world whose forests and beasts are unknown to the recorded memory of elves, dwarves, or men.

In this land called Mira, the brutal sacking of a young colony links the fates of two opposite characters: a twelve-year-old printer’s son named Simon Jones and his long-lost uncle Tiberius Bogg, one of Mira’s legendary mountain men.

Simon is small, but smart; scared but determined. Bogg, with his raccoon-skin cap and smart-talking grammar abuse, is fast as a splintercat and stealthy as a hidebehind. Together, they turn the tables and pursue their attackers (a cruel knight and his soldiers from the old country) through a wilderness full of extraordinary creatures – jackelopes and thunderbirds, fur-bearing trout and four-legged hills – all culled from American tall tales, Indian legends, and backwoods folklore.

My review:

What I liked about New World: a Frontier Fantasy Novel:

* It made me laugh. The situations that Bogg and Simon get themselves into are hilarious

* I loved the story line.  It was definetly attention grabbing.

* Bogg’s character. For some reason, I have a mental image of him that made me laugh

What I disliked about New World: a Frontier Fantasy Novel:

* The knights. They just rubbed me the wrong way.

* and that’s it

Book I am reading now:
