If you like reading fantasy like Kevin J. Anderson's Saga of the Seven Suns, or the Dune epic, or Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time Series, or Orson Scott Card's Ender Series, or Stephen King's The Dark Tower Serial you will most likely enjoy this author. Her characters are charming and personal, occasionally annoying, but mostly just very life like. Her motives for people are realistic. In this book especially (not to ruin it) her end game was very true to life. Most people are not bad, it amazes me that in fantasy books they make the dark side so twisted and evil, it usually just comes down to a lack of choices. She makes her villains likable and real, and that is good writing.
Oh, and yeah, the main characters are gay...what series were you reading that this, the third book, surprised you with that?

I loved the first two nightrunner books and was not disappointed with the third.
One thing I love about Flewelling's books is general is that her characters grow and change - sometimes a lot - yet always remain likeable and interesting. I loved where Flewelling took her characters in this book - particularly Seregil - and also enjoyed the introduction of new characters. This series really has a strong "supporting cast".
I found the worldbuilding to be well done, and got a good sense of the Aurenfaie and Skalan cultures (and it was really interesting, having read her other books, to finally see Aurenen).
In short, this was a book I couldn't put down (okay, that expression works better for paper books - maybe I should say I couldn't turn of my mp3 player) until I finished it.
