In the mythical world Canavan has created, Auraya has been named the newest member of the White, the group of imortals who are the voice and hands of the gods. Auraya and the others are trying to join all of the northern continent under a peaceful set of treaties, however they are attacked by members from the cult of the southern continent. Along the way, Auraya needs to figure out how her relationship with the Dreamweavers, a group of individuals shuned by the rest of the White, fit into the culture the White are creating.
This was a good read. I would recommend Canavan's The Black Magician trilogy before this one so far.
I have read other books by this author that I have really loved. This one just didnt get there. It is about a woman who becomes a Priestess of the White and her talents are tested in order to prove her worthy of the honor and responsibility awareded to her.

Helpful Score: 2
The 1st in a trilogy about Auraya, a priestess of the White. It's a interesting land, but we don't get much of an idea about who the other white are. I'm hoping for more details in the 2nd and 3rd books.
