Book Review: One Realm Beyond

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."


I confess that I haven't read anything YA or Teen in ages and I hesitated to get started on this book. Looking back, I have no idea why! This book grabbed me from page one and I had to force myself to put it aside at night to get some sleep. In fact, I had planned on finishing it tonight, but instead I grabbed it off the nightstand when I went up to get my phone charger and next thing I knew, it was done! I'm in love with Bixby, want to know more about Dukmee and am holding my breath to find out what happened to Cantor's mentors. Did I mention that the dragons can shape shift? Oh please tell me that the author will be publishing the next book soon...before I pass out from all that breath holding....
