Truly one of my favourite trilogy of books, the way Canavan ties together the idea of religion, magic and real life gods is wonderful, the different races in the books are interesting and have significance within the story unlike the majority of other fantasy novels, a must buy, if you're rating this within Trudi Canavans novels I prefer it to the Black Magician Trilogy but they are both brilliant.

Priestess of the White introduces Auraya, the eponymous priestess, as she is initiated into the White, the five immortal servants of the Circle - the five Gods whose priests rule the northern half of the continent of Ithania.

Perhaps now would be a good time to say a bit about the Gods, because they're going to be quite important. Basically the Five Gods - Chaia, Huan, Lore, Yranna and Saru - are a bunch of Star Trek aliens, they're glowy energy beings (that is to say "beings of pure magic") who

Having read quite a few fantasy series, I wasn't expecting too much from this one. But I was pleasantly surprised. With a gripping story, and a protagonist who is easy to get behind, I was only left wishing for a few more magical battles at the end. But good read overall, especially the first two books.

Canavan's characters are so real that they come alive in your head. It is amazing that she is able to give them so much depth. Her universe, her stories, and the relationships among them all are captivating. It's no wonder I finished reading all three books within days.
Absolutely loved this serious first series of this kind i read and fell in love with the characters and the world, re-reading the first one at the moment!

As with most of Trudi Canavan's books, all of these took a little while to get in to, but it was totally worth it! Once I was in, I quite literally had to restrict myself to the number of hours I could spend reading them. What I find about Trudi Canavan's trilogies is that I get very into them, speed through them, finish them way to quickly, and then suffer from a mild depression (and I use this term VERY loosely) and struggle to start a new book, because I feel such an attachment to the charact ...more

I finished this trilogy sometime last year after picking up the first book on a whim. Brilliant trilogy with plenty of characters and character development. You can absolutely get lost in the world Trudi creates. My only one gripe is the plot starts to lose hold within the 3rd book and the trilogy abruptly ends without any climax and leaves nothing to the imagination.

These books are fantastic fantasy novels that incorporate religion, magic and adventure. They explore the idea that there is more to life than just religion or magic and that the two can be combined. I love these books and I believe I will never grow tired of them. A must read for any fantasy lovers.
Really enjoyed this book despite one of my favorite characters changing and pretty much leaving. Cant explain cos SPOILERS lol. Interesting situation with one of Gods, keeps you guessing at his motives. Also interesting to read about the Elai, I liked Imi as a character.

This is possibly my favorite trilogy. Another that I have reread. Trudi Canavan is masterful at her world-building with twists and surprises in each book.
