Kate | 5 comments I thought for a bit tonight that it might be the Song of Seare series, but a 2014 publishing date I'm pretty sure was too late. It had some kind of cover art, always reminded me of the 2003 HarperTeen Abhorsen cover for some reason. Similar art style? Some guy or girl in white robes standing on a hill staring nobly out into the distance.

Similar cover art style mentioned by Kate: Abhorsen (Abhorsen, #3) by Garth Nix

Song of Seare series mentioned by Kate

Can you tell us more about the main character - his age, job/interests, skills/powers/weapons, goal, rich/poor, family/friends, etc.? What are the religious aspects of the story?

Location - realistic/urban, medieval fantasy, unique fantasy world, etc.?

Here is Amazon's "Look Inside" preview of Secret Sacrament by Sherryl Jordan - SBC's suggestion - https://www.amazon.com/Secret-Sacrame...
There's a map and list of characters at the beginning. There are different cover images.

Kate | 5 comments Kris and SBC, thank you! It's been 2 years and I gave up on this post after bumping it the first time, but you were right-I do believe it was Secret Sacrament, with an older cover from 2003.
