I liked it as well; I didn't pipe up when people were saying they didn't
becaue I read the series a fair while ago, and I have found a lot of my
likes and dislikes have changed, so I wanted to reread them. I think the
first was my favourite- I very much liked the world and society all of them
were set in, but I liked the main character of the first book, and her
relationships with her co-protagonists, better than the other ones. STFQ was
the first Huff I read, so I didn't have the experience (which I think a
couple of people mentioned) of expectations based on her other series. I'd
say these are worth a try.
