Priestess Of The White
Priestess of the White - Trudi Canavan

I was browsing through my eReader the other day and there are so many authors that I would like to try at least one book of. Everyone will be familiar with the saying So many book, so little time, so obviously, this is a project that will take ages but brought me to Trudi Canavan's Priestess of The White.

Auraya is chosen as one of the five White, priests who are immortal and have a direct link to the gods.

I do not know with this book. I thought it was very long and I got annoyed by how easy Auraya seemed to be able to solve the problems that apparently everyone had been struggling with for ages. Especially what is the job of some of the other Whites. As such, it has some troubles keeping my attention through the whole book.

Not sure yet if I will give the second book a try.

Priestess of the White (Age of the Five Trilogy, Book 1)
Priestess of the White - Trudi Canavan In a world where the gods battled and five gods established themselves as the one true gods what happens when in another country there are another batch of gods who are claiming superiority? The main character is Auraya and she's learning to deal with her place in the world as an immortal servant of the gods. What she has to do in the world and how she is going to help the world. The one think no-one really knows is the motivations of the Gods, and whether the gods they're fighting for are the good guys. Not a bad read but not the best thing I've read.

Priestess of the White Age of the Five Book 1
Priestess of the White - Trudi Canavan When Auraya’s village is being held hostage, she took a chance to be where the negotiation takes place. Further, she took the chance to say her piece in hope that it may help free the villagers. The result of this peacekeeping action on her part was an opportunity she may never have had. She is to go to learn the use of her Gift and become a priestess, a Circlian.Auraya’s life changed tremendously especially when she was chosen to be the last & fifth White – Chosen of the gods. The Whites are to make overtures to their neighbours in the hope of a peaceful alliance and prosperous country. This endeavour, however, was threatened by an invasion by the Pentadrian who claimed that their five gods are the real gods.Asides from matters of state, Auraya’s personal life was a surprised to her as well. She’s in love, with the wrong man, it seems. Whilst she has known Leiard from her life in the village, he is a heathen, a Dreamweaver, he does not worship her gods. This is unacceptable to her position but she is powerless to deny these feelings. There is no doubt that this will bring her grief but to make it all the more interesting, what about Leiard himself? He is a man of unknown depth or is there something more sinister hidden within him?Since I loved the Black Magician Trilogy, I decided that I really had to read Trudi Canavan’s next trilogy (I also loved The Magician’s Apprentice) and so begins my next foray into a world full of wonder. It is a world of magic, of mystery and of intrigue. Since this is a re-read for me, I found it a little bit hard to get into it at first since I’ve already read this first book (but not the next 2 but I had to re-read before I read the next two – it’s been a while) however once I got into it, I couldn’t put it down. And as always with a re-read, you noticed more things you didn’t before especially the epilogue. I’m not quite sure yet whether I liked the epilogue. I do because it creates an intriguing feeling which makes me want to pick up the next book straight away. And I don’t because I’m afraid that my guesswork of what’s going on (under all that layers of mysteries) is correct and therefore, this epilogue would have just ruined the trilogy for me. I guess, this will all be revealed when I read the next two books in the series.As a side note, this trilogy is not in any way connected to the Black Magician trilogy.

Priestess of the White (Age of the Five Trilogy, Book 1)
Priestess of the White - Trudi Canavan Had to force myself to finish this. I don't know whether or not I'll read the next two - I do find it hard not to finish what I've started... but, that said, I have 65 other books on my shelves waiting to be read.The novel felt very jumbled, it didn't really come together until the last 150 pages or so. I really don't like how the character perspective change is noted only by a line break, that makes it annoying to follow. Saying the characters name somewhere in the first line makes it easier, but it's also lazy and annoyed me every time.Basically, I'm disappointed.

Priestess of the White (Age of the Five Trilogy, Book 1)
Priestess of the White - Trudi Canavan There's nothing I can really say is wrong with this book. It's expertly written with a diverse range of characters and an interesting plot. I did find though, I didn't really identify with Auraya. It was one of those cases where she was nice enough but I didn't really warm to her, though I didn't enjoy several of the other (I won't call them lesser) characters. There were lots to choose from and some were a lot of fun.
In my opinion it doesn't hold a candle to her Black Magician trilogy/world, but was an enjoyable read all the same.
