Priestess of the White Publisher's Summary

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.

    Although the architect of the White's victory, Auraya's first taste of war has left her sleep filled with nightmares. She walks in fields of blood while the dead rise in accusation. You killed us. You. It seems Auraya will know no peace while these nightmares haunt her, but the only one she trusts to help has vanished. The Dreamweaver, Leiard, still struggling to come to terms with the ever more powerful memories of the long-dead Mirar, flees into the mountains with Emerahl, perhaps the last of the Wilds.
