One Realm Beyond / Donita Paul (Realm Walkers, 1)
Zondervan ISBN 978-0-310-73580-9
MS Grades 6-10 Rating: 5
Donita K. Paul returns with a new fantasy series aimed at middle school readers, filled with unforgettable characters (both human and dragon) in a battle of good vs. evil.
Paul is an accomplished storyteller, taking her time to create a world where dragons are constants (similar to sidekicks for superheros), and special gifts enable humans to perform their duties as realm walkers.
Though it starts out slowly, One Realm Beyond engages the reader in the struggle facing Cantor as he progresses in his skills and puts his training to use. Bixby is an endearing character with her quirky ways, and Bridger appears an inept dragon when in fact, his gifts are equally important to Cantor.
Fans of Donita Paul’s earlier series and fantasy fans will not be disappointed!
In conjunction with the CSFF Blog Tour, and Z Street Team, I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.
