Publisher's Description

Cantor D’Ahma waited his whole life for this day. Born with a gift to jump between worlds, the young realm walker is finally ready to leave his elderly mentor and accept his role as protector and defender of the realms.

But mere hours after he steps through his first portal, Cantor discovers that his job will be more dangerous and difficult than he ever imagined. The realms are plagued with crime and cruelty, and even members of the once-noble Realm Walkers Guild can no longer be trusted. To make matters worse, his first assignment—finding a dragon to assist him on his quest—has led him to Bridger, who is clearly inept and won’t leave him alone.

With the help of his new friends Bixby and Dukmee, Cantor must uncover the secrets of the corrupt guild before they become too powerful to be stopped. But his skills aren’t progressing as fast as he would like, and as he finds himself deeper and deeper in the guild’s layers of deceit, Cantor struggles to determine where his true allegiance lies.

    Great premise, but fell short for me.

    Cantor DAhma was born destined to be a realm walker, a protector and defender of the many worlds that exist in the universe. When he finally leaves his mentor and sets out to find his dragon, the preferred companion of realm walkers, he finds himself caught up in an adventure he hadnt expected. Teamed up with a fellow walker, Bixby, and dragon named Bridger, who has set his sights on being Cantors companion, whether Cantor likes it or not, Cantor must uncover the truth about the realm walker guild, the leaders of which have become corrupt and power-hungry.

    While I enjoyed the premise of the book, I found it to be a little slow. This is likely due to the fact that this is the first book of the series, and there is a lot of information to present about this new world, which is, in fact, made of many worlds. So, perhaps the second in the series will be a faster pace. I also found that I didnt completely connect with any of the characters. They are all very well drawn out, but I never got that feeling that I wanted to follow their journey. Characters, for me, is a large part of what makes a book enjoyable, and these left me wanting just a bit more.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Blogging for Books in return for an honest review.

    This is the first novel I have read by Donita K. Paul and what an epic novel it was! She has a fascinating way of weaving me into the story that it constantly left me turning pages as soon as I could!

    My favorite thing about One Realm Beyond was the dragons! They were so very awesome and were nothing like how I read in other fantasy stories! Bridger is quite hilarious and I love his sister's beauty/spunk! Not only were these dragons utterly amazing, but so was Bixby! I loved her quirky ways and especially her clothing! She has such a big heart!

    The overall plot of the story was a very interesting one! The book was never really slow, but it gradually begins to pick up the excitement as the story keeps going! I wouldn't say that your really left hanging at the end where your not satisfied with the cliff hanger, but I am eagerly anticipating book two! There was so much that happened and so much more that NEEDS to happen!

    If you enjoy a fantasy mixed kind of YA action novel this one I would recommend! It's an exciting journey all the way through and sure to be even more exciting as the series progresses!

    I give One Realm Beyond by Donita K. Paul a 4.5 out of 5 stars!

    Cantor is destined for great things. He's just been given the title of realm walker, and much is expected from him. His sacred oath to protect the realms is crucial to mankind. Leaving his mentor, Ahma, behind, he sets off for adventure. Cantor leaps through a portal on his first journey into a new realm, but this time as a true realm walker. As a young man, he finds the feeling of independence refreshing.

    On his trek, Cantor meets a clumsy, shape-shifting dragon by the name of Bridger - who is determined to become his companion. With a dragon on his heels, a talk of rebellion within the council of realm walkers, and a whole new host of whimsical creatures in his path, Cantor must bravely face his life-long journey as a realm walker.

    Choosing faith over fear, he must do whatever it takes to protect the realms, even if that means starting a fierce revolution within the council.

    {My Thoughts:}

    I'm an avid reader of fantasy - it's my favorite genre. Most of what my bookish-mind devours is actually Christian fantasy with a twinge of medieval flair. Usually, these consist of sword-fighting, castles, kings, and the fight between good and evil. I often try to stay away from any book that incorporates too much magic (this is difficult to do), and I often find Christian fantasy to be allegorical - which is what I prefer.

    I was eager to pick up One Realm Beyond by Donita K. Paul. She's well-known for her stories on dragons. I've never read any of her books, but I've noticed her passion for writing fantasy. I was not disappointed with this one. My expectations of her writing were indeed met. Cantor's story engulfed me. My mind was filled with amusement, fear, joy, and sadness. I connected with all of the characters and was drawn into their plight.

    I was struck with this book's unique take on the story's structure. It lacked any obvious plot path. Like a true adventure, I didn't know what to expect in One Realm Beyond. The weaving of the story surprised me, and I really enjoyed that feeling of being left hanging in mid-air from it.

    It's allegorical in that there's a being that watches over the realms: Primen. The characters also visit a "sanctuary," and sing songs - a-kin to a church service. Some of its meaning is easy to ascertain, but other parts may be hidden. I want to go back and chew on what I read. I don't want to miss any significant part. Overall, it's not preachy, but balanced well.

    The tale left me hanging at the end, and I wanted to continue reading. It was so hard to let go and put it away with my stack of books. I am now impatiently waiting for Donita's next title to be released - which I hope will be soon! In the meantime, I fully intend to check out her other collection of works.

    Well done, Donita. I'm impressed. You've won a new fan.

    I highly, highly, completely, and definitely recommend One Realm Beyond to fantasy readers. As with most fantasy, there's violence, tense situations, and a guarantee that you will be drawn into the story. One Realm Beyond not only made it in my top reads of this year, but in my top reads ever list! It's whimsical, magical, and full of charm. A must read!

    I'm not a big fantasy lover, but this story carried me along. It's like taking reality and adding a lot of fun to it. I'd pass this along to friends of all ages, Christian or non. Donita K. Paul has created a set of characters who are distinct from each other, well drawn, enjoyable, and make for great relationships.

    This review was written for One Realm Beyond - eBook.
    Two young people ready to spread their wings and take on the challenge to become realm walkers set out on a quest with a checklist and a plan. But when things don't happen according to their expectations, and they are joined by unlikely companions, their plan begins to unravel while a bigger picture is revealed and the real adventure begins. And since this is book one, this is just the beginning of the battle between the good and evil taking place amidst the realms.

    This story typifies Donita K Paul's writing style. She sets her characters out to accomplish a task but the real story takes place on the way. They must learn to adapt to whatever life throws at them while they grow in their skills and knowledge before finally nearing their initial task.

    I love the mix of companions from a petite but spunky young heroine, a naïve but strongly convicted young hero and two Mor dragons - one who is always one tale whacking away from disaster and his sister who is a diplomat with a talent for persuasion and fashion. Their vast differences compliment each other's weakness but their interchange makes for some interesting events. Like when you try to move an enormously growing but knocked out dragon in a too small wooden cart.

    Sure to be as much of an adventure as the Dragonkeeper series, the Realm Walkers will not disappoint fantasy lovers. Jump in, cross the realms into One Realm Beyond.
