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 daughter’s review
Boy oh boy. Don’t we all wish we were realm-walkers?
I must admit I do envy Cantor D’Ahma quite a bit. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be able to travel between realms, making new dragon friends, and be constantly on the run for your life? Living the dream, man, living the dream.
I loved the way Ms. Donita brought all these characters to life. Each one has their own unique personality traits, and she really brought out the essence of all of them. My personal favorites were Dukmee and Bridger, but I liked each character for specific reasons. What follows is a description of why I like them all, but if you don’t want to be spoiled then skip, please.
Where to begin, where to begin. From the very first chapter, I immediately felt a strong resemblance between him and I. Minus the part about him being inadequately well built, brave, and charismatic. But besides all that, we’re like twins! I loved his sense of faint humor, balancing out his perseverance and determination to dump Bridger and find a real dragon. But I also liked him because of his strange fear. Come on, who’s afraid of pencils and pens? And more importantly, who can talk to them and visualize what they will write next? Overall, he’s pretty awesome.
Oh Bixby. I was most conflicted by you. Although I did like her bubbly, uplifting personality, there was just something about her I didn’t like. There’s a word for people like her…if I remember correctly…”Mary-Sue.”
A character who is classified as unrealistic, perfect, so perfect as to be annoying, or without faults, she may have faults but they are perfect faults, or clichéd ones such as a Disney princess might have.
I just felt like she was too perfect. She can hover, read minds, block her mind’s thoughts, hear excessively well, become almost invisible, tell if someone is lying, is extremely agile, smart, pretty, clever, and strong, She’s a princess with a super amazing dragon, is super rich and popular and can walk through/see the realms. Plus she has a hundred more crowns that can do who knows what. All I’m saying is, she could be better. And be better I mean less better.
I loved Dukmee. I loved his snarky, know-it-all attitude and sneaky, deceiving little smart mouth. I thought he was perfect. My reactions from when I read all the parts with him in it went a little something like this:
Who’s this guy?
What kind of name is Dukmee?
I’m calling him Duke.
Needs more Dukie-pie.
There he is!
Nope he’s gone again.
What does that mean?
ARE YOU FOR REAL.
WHAT IS THIS.
What is life.
I HATE THIS BOOK.
I LOVE THIS BOOK.
DukmeeXJesha forever lol.
Is he lying?
I can’t tell.
HE’D BETTER BE TELLING THE TRUTH.
Okay, he’s telling the truth.
YAY HE DIDN’T DIE!
So basically I can’t wait until book two to find out more about this adorable angel. (That was sarcasm. I know you can’t tell, because you couldn’t hear me say it. I didn’t even say it. I typed it. So now you know.)
From the very first second Bridger walked in, or, haystack-ed in or whatever, I loved him. I knew immediately that he and Cantor would be constants. They were just too perfect for each other! Can you say OTP? Cause I know I can.
Anyways, Bridger really brought the humor in here, and I grasped every drop of it. He was hilarious! Literally within every page I read with him in it I laughed. Or at least inwardly smiled. I also loved his slight over-protectiveness of his sister, and his determination to make Cantor his constant.
She wasn’t my favorite character, or my least favorite character, but I enjoyed reading about her. I had fun visualizing her in my head, although my description of her must be terribly inaccurate.
Overall, this was a great book. The plot is a little tricky to understand once you start reading, but once you get to the middle everything falls into place. Then it gets a little complicated near the end, but still wraps everything up. And the ending also surprised me, although I probably should’ve seen it coming. Ha ha fun… But it was very well wrote and the descriptions were amazingly written. Ms. Donita truly possesses a gift for writing and I can’t wait to read the next book!
