    When Auraya was chosen to become a priestess, she could never have believed that a mere 10 years later she would be one of the White, the gods' most powerful servants. Sadly, Auraya has little time to adapt to the exceptional powers gifted her by the gods. Mysterious black-clad sorcerers from the south plague the land, and rumours reach the White of an army being raised. Auraya and her new colleagues work tirelessly to seal alliances and unite the northern continent under their banner, but time is running out.

    Story

    Don't know if it was the story or the narration but it didn't fully grab me - interesting enough to finish but not enough to look for the next book.

    Story

    A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war.

    Alisha says: "Good listen, but what's up with the chapter set up"
    "a bit grim"
    Overall

    I usually love epics but, half-way through this second book, I found myself avoiding the book and didn't continue; at 2 credits/book, I'm not ordering the rest of the series. I liked the various characters and the structure of these books but there was no humor, no comic relief, no lightheartedness anywhere - too grim for me.
