What a great extension to the adventures of Simon and Bogg.

I thouroghly enjoyed New World and I was delighted to find that Mr White had creared a sequel.

The Hair of the Bear develops the well wrought characters and adds layers to Mira. The story clips along at a quick pace and is over all too soon.

Please read New World first, this book is a worthy sequel.

Well done Mr White, can we have more please?

HASH(0x9d782024) out of 5 stars Brilliant, unique and complex frontier fantasy, five-stars 22 Jun. 2014
By Captain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Although New World was published three years ago, I didn't know about it until this sequel came up on my Amazon recommendations a few days ago. When I saw that New World had 75 mostly five-star reviews, dating from 2011, and was free, I of course "bought" it. I'm a sucker for frontier fantasy, with more outdoorsmanship than politics, and New World exceeded my expectations in all respects. The world is truly new, with unique and very deadly predators over and above the human villains. It's a tale of a world where the human settlers stay on the coast where they arrived because the interior is so dangerous. But the interior is where the mass murdering group of pirates flee after decimating a village, so that's where our heroes go to exact revenge.

In this sequel, and without giving away too much to those who haven't read New World yet, another tale of revenge begins, this time focusing on a woman who is the baddest soldier in her homeland/the mainland, a major in the crown's guard who is in charge of chasing down the worst criminals of the land. She is also royalty and won't let anyone remind her of that. She's tough, she's mean and she's a born leader, and she shows up in the New World ready to chase down the person who murdered a loved one. And she doesn't care about the tales of what awaits anyone foolish enough to go into the interior.

This and the original book are set in an amazingly unique and complex ecosystem, and the heroes must battle the elements along with the villains at every step. Woodcraft features prominently, magic less so but is still present. At their base these stories are about human development as the heroes and villains deal with the surroundings and with each other. There is a new race of sentients that figures prominently in the events.

The boy Simon has changed dramatically, as has his uncle Bogg. Their evolving relationship is heartwarming, and the introduction of a no-holds-barred femme fatale allows the tale to become even more complex and rich. Again, even amidst this unique and complex new world, it's the character development that underscores the plot.

Like the original book, this is a can't miss new and unique sword and sorcery tale for all fans of the genre. It's brilliant.

HASH(0x9fff2054) out of 5 stars Another delightful book! 16 April 2015
By The Sycamore Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Steven W. White does it again. I liked the sequel just as much as the first book. Bogg and Simon are so likable and well-intentioned. And the added character of the Major in this book kept things interesting. I found delight in following all of their adventures and spending time in the world the author created. I can't wait until another of these comes out.
HASH(0x9fff2990) out of 5 stars Engaging fantasy 7 Nov. 2015
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I purchased this sequel after receiving New World as my monthly Prime offering. I believe I read it even faster than the first novel (and I'm a pretty fast reader). I'm hoping I won't have to leave Simon, Bogg, or even Lis yet -- and that Steve White is hard at work on the third novel of this series. The creatures are imaginative. I enjoy trying to picture how they look, move and sound. The wild man seems an unusual manifestation of a deity (if that's what he is). The storytelling has a backwoods flavor that reminds me of a yarn spun by Dan'l Boone.
HASH(0x9db6b15c) out of 5 stars Good Second Entry into a Delightful Series 26 Nov. 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Not quite as good as the first book in the series but still delightful and original. Simon's adventures include a very exciting exploration of vIvet society and history. The main problem was that the portions of the story concerning Bogg and the Algolan warrior were often tedious and slowed the story down.and the warrior herself was not an interesting.character. But still a book worth reading for the enjoyable tale of Simon and the vIvet Ee.
HASH(0x9de772dc) out of 5 stars Another interesting read! 6 May 2015

Well done on the novel Sir! You managed to get me to purchase a follow up of the first, I normally get a free first book and don't spend any money, but Mr. White you got me!

I normally read a few pages and fall asleep for the night, but I get dug into your stories and read chapters keeping up later than I'd like.

I recommend this book if you are into fiction and a good change.
