Joraiem and the young Novaana train in the Summerland to rule Kirthanin and to defend it against the evil schemes of Malek. The Binding of the Blade is an original fantasy series based in part on prophecy from the book of Isaiah. Book 1, Beyond the Summerland, is where the adventure begins for a band of young Novaana, eager to serve and rule the four regions of the world of Kirthanin. Kirthanin is enjoying a time of peace, though Malek, Master of the Forge, and the betrayer of old, controls Agia Muldonai, the Holy Mountain. Malek's servants are growing bolder and venturing further from their mountain stronghold, and the fragility of Kirthanin's peace is growing ever clearer. Join this adventure of friendship, love, and betrayal. Ride through majestic forests and sail the forgotten waters. Rest a while in a summer paradise and walk the streets of an ancient and forbidden city. It will be the greatest challenge of their lives, but it is only the beginning. The Binding of the Blade Series has the world-building of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time, the heroic tone of Lawhead's Pendragon Cycle, and thematic richness and depth of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. While The Binding of the Blade is distinct from each of these series, these are authors whose works are "similar" in nature to Graham's series.

A Must Read
4 stars By Emily, Mar 29 2016
This is the first book of the Binding of the Blade series.  Itis a great beginning to a fantastic series.  I have to say that this book sets a lot of groundwork and gives a lot of background information which is essential to understanding the series as a whole. The beginning of the book is very wordy and confusing, but press on and everything becomes clear. It is well worth it in the end. It is full of Biblical symbolism. I would definitely  recommend reading the enitre series!!!

Very well written!
4 stars By Josh, Apr 29 2008
Splendid work of writing! Leaves you really hanging at the end though. I really need to read the other books to understand some of the descriptions and characteristics of some of the main characters that the author brings out. Recommended for good readers though. Really keeps you reading. One of the major downpoints of this book is that you can't lay it down!!
