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. War comes to the lands of the White, and unless Auraya can master her new abilities, even the favour of the gods may not be enough to save them.
Trudi Canavan, author of the best-selling Black Magician Trilogy, embarks upon a wonderful new fantasy series set in a classical world of magic, heroes, gods, and forbidden love.

I am a big big fan of Trudi Canavan and have all her books in hard copy, as e-books, as CD’s and now thanks to Audible i now have them on my i Phone to so as you can guess i love her books. Although i prefer to listen to mens voices Sarah Douglas reads the story well and is pleasant to listen to. The story is magical as well as being a love story it keeps you hooked though out not just the book but the whole trilogy. Every book finishes making you beg for more.
"An enjoyable listen"
I had listened to all the Trudi Canavan books on audible up until recently, so was really pleased when I saw this trilogy was now available, having really enjoyed the other books I'd heard. It took me a little longer to get into this one than it had her others, but once I did, I enjoyed it. It's surprising how different she has managed to make this trilogy from the other ones I've listened to.
I often find that sci-fi and fantasy books aren't very well written, but Trudi Canavan is definitely an exception to this. Her stories develop the characters strongly and flow well, with an interesting story line to them. I'd certainly recommend her to others who like this genre.
"makes doing housework fun!!!"
Whilst listening to this trilogy I have found myself looking for things to do on my own so I can listen uninterupted- even peeling vegetables and cleaning the bathroom!!!! A great story with numerous sidelines that merge to form a wonderful rounded story with a interesting message
"The White brought to life as you listen."
Three words to sum up this book would be, next volume please!
I love magic and fantasy, I think it s difficult to compare any as all can be similar as well as completely different. Maybe a simpler form of Terry Brooks style.
This is the first I have heard of Sarah narrations, I will certainly look out for her in the future.
"Interesting theology themed story"
It took a little while to get hooked, you have to go with the unusual terminology until it is fully explained later (the story is set in a completely different world where magic is an every day gift for a lot of people). Once I got used to it then it all flowed better for me and most things are explained later and match up quite well with what I had guessed the equivalents would be.
The trilogy is essentially about religion and relationships that exist in and around contrasting beliefs. Big plot twist of the trilogy is a tad predictable (guessed it by the end of the first book) but you are left until the bitter end of the last book to find out if you are right or not.
"An amazing series."
For those of you who are Science Fiction fans this series is a must. If you are not a Science fiction fan then I would still recommend it as an excellent read. The author has a way of using description that takes you into the story and makes you a part of the characters’ lives. The trials and tribulations of the main character Auraya keeps you reading on. However, the author also brings many other characters into the story and you are equally bold along by them and their part in the plot.
The story is cleverly written with lots of insight into prejudice against race and religion from different characters perspectives and opinions.
I would highly recommend it... a fascinating read!
"An okay listen"
This book is well read but I am not rushing to get the rest in the series. I may end up getting the rest if I have no other books that catch my fancy. I think the story it a little too hit or miss for my tastes and seems to take a long time to get anywhere. It is wonderfully fun in places with interesting ideas but compared to other books by Trudii Canavan I found this one disappointing.
"Grows on you"
This started a bit slow and I found it a bit confusing at the beginning. It does get much better though and is worth continuing. Over all a great listen.
"Just doesn't do it very hard to get into"
If this was written in the same way as the last two trilogies
I have listened to the magician trilogy and the traitor trilogy and thought they were really good but after this book I would have to think about it as I feel I have wasted my money
No I found her hard to listen to I would prefer the guy who was the narrator for the last two trilogies
All of them very hard to believe in any of them
Total waste of time
I have enjoyed The black magician and traitor spy trilogies and thought I would try the white priestess. I was disappointed, I had to listen to most of it two or three times. It was complicated as there are lots of different types of 'people' 'countries' and 'names', this meant if My concentration wandered for any reason, I was lost. I did not feel the narrator differentiated enough between the characters and I was very confused about who was speaking.
