This is the first of a SF/F trilogy that I absolutely adore. The three books expand in scope in a masterful fashion. They are set in a world inhabited by four sentient races; the aeyries - furred and winged hermaphrodites, the walkers - much like us but egg-bearing, the orchths - six-limbed shamanic singers, and the mers - group-mind swimmers. The series addresses many issues with a beauty and poetry of language - issues of prejudice, belonging, losing and finding oneself, growing up, taking responsibility... she packs a lot into these little books.
