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.
This was a fun, fantastic book
Really enjoyed the story and the writing style.
New World: A Frontier Fantasy Novel
The book was well written. I enjoyed the main characters' development throughout the book and the introduction of the vivets and a dragon. The beginning dragged a bit but towards the end it was more action-packed.
Interesting mix of real and fantasy worlds. Tastes smells and fantasy for a fantastic story!
