As the eleventh book in the Saga of Recluce, 'The White Order' introduces main character Cerryl, whose ability to gather chaos brings the gaze of the White Order upon him. This novel is a turning point in the series, because the White Order can no longer be seen as inherently evil, which the earlier books seem to relate to the reader.

In this novel, Cerryl struggles to find his place amongst the white brethen. Pitted against powerful and dangerous adverseries such as Jeslek (reinstated from The Magic Engineer)and the scheming Anya, Cerryl soon realises that he must rely on more the just sheer power to survive in Fairhaven. Unlike Jeslek who exerts chaos to extremes, Cerryl seeks to balance his chaos talents with order. This novel is the first in the series to focus on the whites' perspective of chaos/order. This book does have a 'coming of age' theme, but is so well written, the reader will find it hard to put down. 'The White Order' is a worthy edition to the Saga of Recluce and is bound to to have the reader seeking the next book, 'Colours of Chaos'.
