Beyond the Summerland - L.B. Graham
Christian Fantasy fiction at its best! 'Beyond the Summerland' is the first book in a 5 book epic called 'Binding Of The Blade'. First half was just a tad slow, but very understandable as the foundation of the series needed to be laid. The second book 'Bringer Of Storms' is said to be better than Summerland. The books look like 'teen fiction' (the covers don't do them any justice), but don't be fooled... this is no cuddly Aslan story.
