The Holy White Fire has been wielded by heroes throughout history to banish the Demons of Nightmare. When the one hero falls, the Holy White Fire passes to the next hero - it passes into the hands of 11-year-old William 'Bully' Exeter. Bully is a normal boy, in a normal school, with normal friends...
Normal for a boy six feet tall, 300 pounds and still growing. Normal for a boy with an abusive father and a fanatical mother. Normal for a boy with a crush on his best friend, Scott. Normal for a boy who can disappear in a Green world of monsters and man-beasts and become a legendary Bear Spirit warrior.
Before Bully can understand the power he has inherited, the Demon Despair will trap Bully inside his own frail and overgrowing body. Bully must find a way to become a hero that can stop Nightmare from destroying not only his family, but from extinguishing the Holy White Fire all together. To live is to leave everything behind, finding the strength and courage to protect what is truly important.
The Dance of All Beings Cycle begins - Hope vs Despair - The White vs. Nightmare - as the magic of gods and the creatures of myth return to the Blasted Earth.
Bully the Bear also includes a Discussion Guide for Book Clubs, Journaling, or Self-contemplation.
