Bear Waters, one of the top bounty hunters in the city of Northport, is in trouble. He is in pursuit of a mad cultist whom the Sheriff’s Guard has called the Silver Dirk, after the weapon he uses to attack — but never kill — his victims. After some consultation, he has deduced that the Silver Dirk is preparing for an ancient ritual intended to summon the Elder Gods, those ancient beings of horror from primordial days. But in his pursuit, he — along with his friend and ally, Grace Hilltop of the Sheriff’s Guard — has been transported to a world that we would find very familiar, but that they find amazing and unfamiliar. Getting home is but one issue facing Waters and Hilltop. They have to get home before the Silver Dirk can succeed in his plan, threatening the well-being of more than one world.

Jun 10, 2011Realm Hunter: Pursuit of the Silver Dirk is one of the most interesting books I’ve read in awhile. It is a blend of science fiction and fantasy, with even a little mysterious twist. The book is told from the perspective of Bear Waters, a bounty hunter in a world where Ghoul’s Room and lycanthrope’s are vulnerable to silver. Before long, we come to realize that Bear’s world isn’t the only world out there. There are others, one of them being our own, and they are all similar in different ways. The Silver Dirk is a man that is believed to come from “our” world, World One, a doctor named Eric Bennadict. He is committing various crimes on World Two, which lead Bear to finding out about the different realms that exist. We follow Bear on his pursuit of the Silver Dirk, which takes him to various worlds and to encounters of dinosaurs and different people. All the while, he and his friends are trying to figure out just what the Silver Dirk’s motives are. I really enjoyed Bear as a character,... More > and despite the fact that he said he often rambled in retellings, the ramblings were a bit much at the beginning. This made the book hard to get through no matter how interested I was in the story. It took me a little longer to read than I would have liked, but it was definitely worth finishing. The story really picked up at the end for me and I really can’t wait to read the second one and find out what happens next!< Less
Feb 7, 2011This is a wonderful book. It combines science with fantasy in a remarkably refreshing way. The main character, "Bear Waters," is both intelligent and compassionate in his search for the "Silver Dirk!" Teamwork is the key to discovering the mystery behind the cult summoning the "Elder Gods," from which no good can come, putting more than one realm at risk of destruction. Kudos to the author, Bob Greenwade, for creating compelling characters and a story that the reader, (at least this reader) finds fascinating. I look forward to the next book in this series. Sincerely, Cathy Jones-Foster
