This review is from: Priestess Of The White: Book 1 of the Age of the Five (Hardcover)This is an interesting novel that tries to tackle the idea of religion but it is too like her previous trilogy. Auraya is too like Sonea from The Black Magician trilogy and Ithania is too like Kyralia due to the old fashioned customs and how magic works. This book is enjoyable but isn't in the same league as The High Lord which is, in my humble opinion, Canavan's best work.
My advice: read The Black Magician trilogy and then read this for your Canavan fix.
