Comments New World

  • Sharon Michael

    The author takes elements of the American frontier, mixes well with intriguing elements of a fantasy world and comes up with a quirky, fun read. Great characters that could have walked out of a frontier novel, fantasy beasts that work anywhere and a quest plot that is never boring.It is truly delightful when one of the 'free downloads' end up being one of my 5-star reviews and I have another author to put on my 'look for' lists.


  • Stitchywoman

    Great little quick coming of age read. This was a fast paced enjoyable story. It was fun to watch Simon grow and find his strengths. My only complaint is that there is no sequel. I would enjoy reading more about Simon and his uncle.


  • J

    This novel is an easy and relatively entertaining read. Don't let the synopsis' brief mention of dwarves and elves mislead you- this is no kind of high, epic fantasy. It certainly falls more in the Folktale vein. Generally I found the plot to be composed of many overused story-writing tropes (i.e. scrawny character tormented by bullies but later comes into his own, quest in pursuit of vengeance, unlikely traveling companions develop reluctant bond, etc). The author does present some interesting [...]


  • Doniella

    Steve White is one of the new brilliant creators in fiction. New worlds, unseen and yet vaguely familiar. He is able to carry us into other worlds believable and yet unfamiliar.

    RefreshingA breath of fresh air in this genre, let's put it this way I had never read any of this authors books or so much as heard his name I stumbled across it on my kindle, as soon as I have finished typing I will be downloading the sequel and looking at his other offerings if you enjoy a great original thought provoking story then read this, and five gets you ten you buy the sequel!


  • Troy Sehlinger

    Not too shabbyQuality read about a new-ish world, but similar to North America. Tendencies of American folklore mixed with fantasy fiction. Characters are way more intriguing than the story and realm. Would be interested to read about Tiberius' past or future endeavors.


  • Tomi

    A quick read with some interesting creatures. I couldn't really warm up to the story, but did read it through to a rather predictable ending.


  • markingle

    Great fantasy bookFantasy books are great to read no matter the fantasy is about.I choose this rating on the story itself.New World great reading.


  • Linda

    On the largely unexplored continent of Mira, there are strange and wonderful creatures: hairy "hills" with tusks and trunks (mammoths?); flying, telepathic, fire-breathing dragons; and a humanoid race with green skin, called "vivets", who live in the forest and protect themselves by using gold nuggets as slingshot pellets.There are also pirates and murderers who want to make Mira their own private lair.


  • Danny

    Really good. Colonial Fantasy. Maybe I like it because both of the main characters don't think much of other people, and are only mainly interested in surviving independently of civilization.


  • Victoria Gaile

    Well, I got it free for the Kindle, because it was auto-recommended as similar to Pat Wrede's Thirteenth Child books which I like a lot. Sadly, the resemblance was superficial: this book consisted essentially of violence, travelogue, and corny dialect. The fantasy creatures were interesting, but there wasn't enough in the way of plot or non-nasty characters to sustain the book. Also, the only women in the book were briefly-appearing plot devices at the beginning and the end: a mother who hands o [...]


  • James Latimer

    Downloaded this book a while ago because it was free, and sounded interesting. It ended up being one of the few free books that really hooked my interest, and, while not perfect, it's really worth a read. First, this sort of "New World" or "Frontier Fantasy" isn't that common, and I found it quite refreshing. The wildlife and survival elements were nicely woven in, and the incorporation of American mythology made me realise how rich and fantastic it is. It tends to be ignored in most of fantasy [...]


  • Ken

    FunWhat a fun book. It's basically a tale of a foreign land, could be Australia or America, b u t I tend more to America. It's filled with American Tall Tales about the animals and natives already here. The author mixes in prehistoric animals like the Sabre-tooth Tiger and wholly mammoths, and giant Thunderbirds. There's pirated, errant knights murdering villages, weird natives, and lots of wildlife previously in tall tales. It's a hoot. And the two main characters, a young orphan boy and his gr [...]


  • Raena

    I am always wary of free kindle books but I try to take a chance on them every once in a while. I am glad that I took a chance on New World. The ebook was actually proofread and there were very few grammatical errors with the exception of when Bogg spoke, but those were intentional. The story was exciting and moved at a very good pace. The characters were believable and interesting. I was initially annoyed by the world building because in the beginning of the book it seemed unnecessary. The "exc [...]


  • Bob

    This is a fantasy novel about a young boy and his adventure in the company of his “Uncle” as they pursue a group of armed men who had attacked the boy’s village, killing many including the boy’s father. The “Uncle” was loner (mountain man) who had come to the village in need of supplies arriving just after the marauders had left. Not liking what he found and with the promise of a reward he vows to find and kill the marauders. The young boy, thin and not very strong but with a sharp m [...]


  • Dannica Zulestin

    SooooI kind of enjoyed this book, but I'm not sure I can call it good.First and foremost, there's some blatant racism. The land appears to be some sort of alternate, magical America, and the colonists are human, but all the natives are some kind of elvish creature. I mean it's possible that there are human Native Americans around somewhere and there are just some Fae in addition to them, but we don't see any. And I don't like the implications of that. Calling Native Americans magical and inhuman [...]


  • Kathie Zingler

    GoodFascinating plot. People are landing in the new world and settle along it's shores. The interior is considered very dangerous. The little people live there, deep green and intelligent. Simon and his uncle, the wilderness man, track down the pirate killers is Simon' father and the murdered brother of great uncle Bogg. A classic coming of age plot with 12 year old Simon not only learning how to survive , but teaching his old uncle a few new tricks. Simon learns to communicate with the green pe [...]


  • Hollie

    A great read! A mix of Frontier, Fantasy, and Pirates. A combination I wasn't sure about until this author put them all together. I can't wait to read more of his work. I even signed up for his newsletter. I wasn't sure when I first read the reviews. If your looking for romance your in the wrong book I only remember three women in the whole book and they were supporting characters that made brief appearances. The majority of the book Bogg and the boy are in the wilds of a fantastic world. I can' [...]


  • Sharon Shearer

    Best fantasy writing I've read in awhileI received this novel free as my Prime monthly option. I consumed it in a couple days and speedily bought the sequel. Although Mr White's stories have a more backwoods, unsophisticated flavor than Rothfuss' fantasy series (acclaimed by George R R Martin, Orson Scott Card, and Ursula Le Guin), I enjoyed them as much. Both protagonists in the first book, Simon & Bogg, and even Lis from the second novel, hold their own as developed characters -- apart or [...]


  • David Henry

    New WorldCombining elements of high fantasy, folk legend,and fairy tale, this book is unlike anything I've read before. Something absolutely unique to my reading experience. It is well written, and gallops along at breakneck speed. In it, you'll find a little bit of everything (in a good way!) It's set in a kind of alternet, slightly sideways version of what would seem to be North American pre-colonial days. It's not called America, but the vibe is certainly there. You'll meet pirates, mountain [...]


  • Kyra Halland

    I tore through New World and its sequel Hair of the Bear in about three days all together. Exciting, scary, funny, fast-moving (and even emotional and thought-provoking) adventures through the frontier of Fantasyland's New World in the company of the inimitable Tiberius Bogg. Wonderful reading for anyone who wants a taste of the frontier in their fantasy. I would particularly recommend them for teen boys, junior high age and up, who enjoy fantasy and adventure. As the mom of two former teenage b [...]


  • Deborah

    Steven White has done a great job of keeping the readers attention throughout the book. In a land called Mira,Simon Jones,a twelve-year-old printer's son and his long-lost uncle Tiberius Bogg,a mountain man that is used to being alone. Are offered a reward if they go after the men that attacked the village and murdered several men including Simone's father. A wonderful coming of age story. A great adventure. I hope there will be a sequel to tell the story of further adventures of Simone and his [...]


  • Tara

    Meh. Creatures that exist as convenient. Deus ex machina dreams. Only one female character who is around for more than a single scene, unless you count the animals. Set-in-his-ways old man who lives off the land unwillingly takes on his great-nephew. He's harsh and stern, but the boy can see that uncle is just protecting and guiding him. Besides, he isn't being beaten and that's a step up. I mean, it wasn't bad and I did finish it. It was just.I know this story. I'm rather tired of this story.


  • Maria

    A story about friendship, about growing up. About friendship between a boy and a man, uncle and nephew. A exciting journey, in a strange (yet not too strange) land.This was a great read; not too long, not too short. Just enough. The characters were credible, both the good guys and the bad. I liked that you could read both parts view. I liked that the main characters weren't perfect. I liked that "the bad guys" were more than just "the bad guys". I am glad I got to experience this book, and I'm c [...]


  • Cheryl Brandt

    This is a coming of age story that is fast-paced and imaginative. The language is redolent of the era of the mountain man, but in a place where all the wild stories are true. Simon watches his village be destroyed by five marauders, and then follows his new-found uncle into the wilderness on an adventure to avenge his father, and maybe learn how to take care of himselfFun, quick to read and a wonderfully imagined world and creatures.Very much fun, recommended.


  • Steve

    Even though we share most of a name, I just couldn't read this book. It's trapped between genres and not very well steeped in either. It reads like a fantasy book with thematic elements that go along but it is intermixed with childish phraseology that derails the reader and discombobulates the story.


  • Albert

    This is an interesting take on a fantasy novel. It takes place in a stylized America shortly after colonization, with majority of the continent largely unsettled. There are no ostentatious displays of magic, but the wild frontier setting is interestingly and well done, making the story seem…novel.


  • Amy Krohn

    I read this ebook while exercising on the treadmill. It's a different sort of book for me, but I found myself wanting to get back to it! The setting is much like early America with some fun differences. There is a bit more explicit violence than I care for, but the characterization of Bogg and Simon was so well done that I could keep going despite the violence.


  • Jacque Holst

    EnjoyableA nice read. Story line is tight and well developed, does not wander or leave open unanswered questions. The growing relationship between the old man and the young boy is the heart of the story


  • Danelle

    A fun book - great for a free e-book. There were many places where the author could have easily expanded the story; not quite plot holes, just missed opportunities for more detail. I suppose these just allow me to use my own imagination to fill the gaps!
