Review: One Realm Beyond by:Donita K. Paul

 One Realm Beyond (Realm Walkers)
 About the Book:
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.

My Review:
Canter is a well known realm walker, or will be. His favorite pass time is fishing and he was enjoying it, that's until a dragon comes and lands on him. And that's when he knew that the time has come to receive his orientation. So he and the dragon make their way to an old friend of his and she tells him of the many things that he has to do to become an official realm walker. Canter only hopes it wont be more than he can handle.
 
Bixby only wants to please her parents but isn't really sure, how. Being from a royal family things are often given to her, but Bixby wants to fend for herself and show everyone how she can handle herself and doesn't need anyone. And around that time she comes across a raggedly group of another realm walker, a dragon, and the dragons cat. And together this crazy group have to save a whole town from destruction. But will they  make it in time?
