Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4–7—Realm Walkers have the ability to travel easily between the nine worlds and the mandate to help maintain the peace and prosperity of those worlds. Young Cantor can't wait to start his official training, but first he must find his Constant (as in companion)—a shape-shifting dragon partner. Unfortunately, it's the goofy, over-eager, and just plain annoying Bridger who shows up. And yet, he proves he's much more than he seems to be. The same holds true with the other companions of the road who join Cantor in his travels, including Bixby, a tiny and talented young woman who knows she is destined for some great, as yet undiscovered work. Add to that an ultrafeminine and wily spy (who happens to be a dragon), a mysterious mentor, and an even more mysterious warrior angel, all of whom join in the fight to uncover and end corruption in the Realm Walkers Guild. Faith and honor are highlighted in this decent start to what should turn out to be a pleasantly entertaining middle-grade fantasy/adventure series.—Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library

From Booklist

Possessing the rare ability to move between worlds, Cantor D’Ahma has waited his whole life to become a realm walker—a wanderer who helps the less fortunate—and his opportunity has finally come. With the blessing of his mentors, Cantor strikes out to find his “constant” (a dragon companion) and make his way to the formal realm walker training hall. During his journey, an unusual cohort forms around him, including a spritely girl named Bixby and a clumsy, shape-shifting dragon determined to be Cantor’s constant. Evidence of corruption within the guild responsible for the realm walkers adds a layer of intrigue and tension to the plot. Paul builds her world with care, guiding readers through its structure and beliefs. Action is minimal but explosive, making this a novel that will hold particular appeal for readers who like to immerse themselves in characters and journeying through fantasy worlds. First in the Realm Walkers series, this lays the groundwork for developments of epic proportions. Grades 5-8. --Julia Smith

Filled to the brim with imaginative ideas, memorable characters, and Christian themes woven into the story, One Realm Beyond is the beginning of the new 'Realm Walkers' series by Donita K. Paul. I think there are going to be three novels in total, but I'm not entirely sure. What I am sure of, however, is that this is a fantastic start! The book may seem slow paced to some, but Mrs. Paul puts a lot into building up the plot and fleshing out the world(Or should I say worlds, flat worlds stacked like pancakes, one of the many creative ideas you'll discover in the book). Character development is top notch and the characters are fun, my personal favorite being Bridger the shapeshifting dragon. By the end of the book you'll find yourself attatched to the characters and eagerly anticipating the next book. I can't wait! If this is your first time reading a book by Donita K. Paul, I suggest while you are waiting for the next one you read her 'DragonKeeper Chronicles' and 'Chiril Chronicles'. They are adventures you don't want to miss out on! One Realm Beyond is a fun, exciting read and I'm very much looking forward to the rest of the series.

Format: Paperback
I really liked this novel. I think it is probably the best fantasy I've read in several years.

Cantor was born with the gift to walk between the worlds. Finally it is time. In his first journey through the portal to another realm, he is to find his dragon. Within a few minutes of being in the new world, he does meet a dragon – Bridger, a bumbling and inept dragon that insists he's the one for Cantor. But when Bridger almost sets himself on fire, Cantor is not so sure this is the one. He'll keep looking.

As Cantor travels, Bridger on his heels, he meets Bixby – in a tree. Bixby may become a realm walker. She's not sure. She has many other special gifts and Primen (God) has not yet identified her role.

Cantor and Bixby, Bridger following along, travel this realm. They are dismayed to learn that it is plagued with evil. Even the once noble Realm Walkers Guild is in danger. There are a few in the council who destroy the others to gain power. Cantor and Bixby, with the aid of Bridger and his sister, are in a race for time to save the guild.

I really liked this novel. Donita has created a world that is very real and believable. There are no hard to understand (and pronounce) characters or places. There are no strange customs or or animals (except dragons) or plants (except one that blows up).

The best part for me were the dragons. Bridger is a riot. He has a heart of gold but is such a bumbling dragon, I just had to laugh at him. And his sister, who agrees to be Bixby's dragon temporarily, loves to shop! Both of those dragons have character!

This is definitely my kind of fantasy novel. There are clearly identified good guys and bad guys. There are crazy shape shifting dragons. There are well developed characters.

One Realm Beyond, by Donita K. Paul, was an awesome book! I could not stop reading it. The dialogue were very well done. I was able to laugh and cry with them. With the seriousness of their various situations, it was great to have a comedian like Bridger.

Paul did a wonderful job of including the idea of God and the spiritual world as C.S. Lewis and Chuck Black did in their series. There were many times that I would come across phrases about character and strength that really struck me. They made me want to be stronger in the Lord, read His word, and be more like Him. Paul has written a book which will be a classic for many generations. The Lord has blessed her with a gift that she has fortunately shared with us, the readers.

You won't be disappointed when you read this book.

My teenage niece's review, in her own words:

One Realm Beyond by Donita K. Paul has an excellent, interesting plot and a fascinating setting. The story focuses on Cantor D'Ahma, a young Realm Walker who struggles with his pride, and his lively, likeable companions: Bridger, a shape-shifting Mor dragon of perpetual mishaps; Bixby, a powerful and eccentric girl with a secret; and Dukmee, a healer who is (in Cantor's opinion) entirely too young to be as good as he is at his craft.

The setting is brilliantly original and extremely well-developed. The concept of the planes and portals is explained clearly and succinctly, in a way totally organic to the story, as is all necessary explanation. The pace is very well-balanced, being a good mix of exciting action and careful exposition, so that the reader never feels either agitated or bored while reading.

Also, foreshadowing is used well in this book. The reader is never taken by surprise in a negative manner or brought to a point where he asks, “where on earth did that come from?” However, neither are any important story events revealed ahead of time. All events flow naturally and smoothly into one another to create a very well-crafted tale, which I devoured in about two days. I can't wait to read the next book!
