A sophomore release, The White Faced Bear is R. Scott McCoy’s pulse-quickening concoction of action, horror, and Native American folklore.

The story follows Jeff Bennett, who has come to Kodiak to fulfill a promise to his recently deceased father. His arrival stirs an unknown enemy—Aouachala, a Sun’Aq shaman trapped forever in the body of a brown bear. To destroy the bloodline of his adversary, he uses his powers to hunt Jeff and anyone else who gets in the way. Jeff must seek the assistance and friendship of Merrick Polasky, a descendant of Aouachala as well as a modern day shaman who has yet to realize his powers, in order to save himself and Kodiak. From Alaska to Minnesota to the desolation of Siberia, the men must work together to defeat the White Faced Bear, but before they can take down the powerful magician, they must learn to say goodbye to their fathers and conquer their inner demons.

Indeed, this is a ‘man’s book’ all the way through. The primary characters possess extraordinary survival and hunting skills, are extremely intelligent and dead-on marksmen. (If you want to learn a thing or two about firearms and effective ammunition, this is the book for you!) They work hard, play harder, enjoy a few beers at the bar at the end of a long day… and do not shirk away from a good brawl when the mood hits them. These are the underdogs you root for in the movies. They always win.
