AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Auraya is chosen as the fifth Priestess of the White, a representative of the gods in the mortal world. Raised in a small village, Auraya's opinions often conflict with those of her fellow Circlians, but she is powerfully gifted, and has a talent for negotiation that could help to unite Northern Ithania. In an ancient lighthouse lives a sorceress, hidden since the rise of the Circlians. All other immortals are dead or missing since the Circle sent the first White to kill them. When a priest comes to the tiny village nearby, the sorceress is forced to flee, but events conspire to place her in trouble's path. Isolated within their mountainous terrain, the winged Siyee struggle to survive. Small and fragile, they are helpless against the "landwalker" settlers taking their land. Auraya is sent to help them and also to enlist their aid.' (Source: LibrariesAustralia)
