Bob Greenwade has created a compelling universe where we move from world to world in search of a master criminal.
Bear Waters accepts a job to solve the crime of the Silver Dirk. People have been hurt but what seems strange to Bear is that they are never killed. Still, blood is drawn which leads our intrepid investigator to believe that the mysterious silver dirk attacker is part of a sinister cult hell bent on summoning the Old Gods which doesn’t just mean the end of one world but possibly the universe (or at least five worlds).
The story is imaginative and my only gripe was that there were quite a few discussions about what things were in ‘our’ world. This shouldn’t put you off however as it is a great read and cleverly written.
Fans of sci-fi might spot the red shirts and Dr Hoo references. I might be reading too much into it but they made me giggle appreciatively.
This book was a great read and I could have carried on reading when it reached the end. Fans of The Dresden Files will enjoy this but the similarities are only superficial. This is an original work which made me glad I set up the Fantasy Book Club for under $3 on Amazon Discussions.
I recommend this one!
Just so you know, Ceri: the second half of the story (Realm Hunter: Trail of the Elder Gods) should be now available at Amazon in Kindle format. It’s also at Lulu in paperback, PDF, and ePub formats.
