This is one of my all time favorite books. I get pretty bored with high fantasy and sword & crown type books, but there is a sparseness and a deep humanity to this book (and those that follow it). I like the way in which Flewelling deals with moral complexity (I've never been a fan of Superman style "good guys" and one-dimensional "bad guys"). I also love the sensitive and well wrought way in which she deals with gender ambiguity and transition throughout the series. The characters are real, believable, and compelling. If you like William Gibson or enjoyed _Dollhouse_ (TV) and are in the mood for fantasy, this should be right up your alley. Definitely worth a read.
