I enjoyed the mythology of this world. Gods are part of the story and Book 2 is even about a minor Goddess/paladin f/f pairing.
Book 3 goes back to Esofi and Adale's story, with a few appearances from the Book 2 pairing.
A couple of days ago, I ran into this tweet, where the author describes her novels in Twitter-speak. If I hadn't already been reading them, this would definitely have attracted my attention. I also like how the author dedicates her books to cats.
