Auraya has just been named a Priestess of the White, to serve as sword and shield of the gods — one of only five so honoured. She finds her unique talents tested to the limit when she travels far from home as an ambassador enlisting others to follow the White.
But Auraya’s relationship with a member of an outcast sect of sorcerer-healers risks bringing her into conflict with others of the White... and possibly destroying her future.
Overshadowing all this is a powerful and mysterious black-clad sorcerer who seems to have a single purpose: annihilation of the White. And he is not alone.
