I think the "Age of The Five" is probably Trudi Canavan's best fantasy trilogy. While it shares a lot of elements with her magician's guild books, it is set in a different fantasy world and not so blatantly influenced by role-playing games or typical fantasy writing.
In "The Last of the Wilds" Auraya, the White, undergoes a subtle transformation. The listener is also introduced to the Pentradreans, the dreaded enemy, and the black and white, right and wrong world created by the five gods ruling Mithania becomes blurred.
I heartily recommend this unabridged version to the abridgement, as there are some details that adds flavour to a good story that you might miss if listening to the abridged version.
Sarah Douglas complements the story nicely and brings the story to vividly to life.
Be warned, at the end of this book, you might be impatient to get the the next part, "The Voice of the gods." I enjoyed this book.

Loved it when the book first came out, still just as good in audio. A great story.
Would you listen to Last of the Wilds again? Why?
Probably not as I love new stories
What other book might you compare Last of the Wilds to, and why?
Dragonlance books, the complexity of the story, lots of strands and people to follow
Have you listened to any of Sarah Douglas’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Just as good as the first one I read...
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No, just engaged me
Any additional comments?
The other books have a chap reading them, whose voice is not one I could listen to for the length of these books, so looks like I will not be listening to any more books from this author unless this changes, sadly
