This is a book I've just finished, had a great time reading, and wanted to share with you.
From the first line of Page 27:
"I thought everyone had to answer a steerswoman."
"Nobody has to answer anyone; people answer because they want answers in turn. If you deny any steerswoman's questions, no steerswoman will ever answer yours again."

The author was recommended on Tor.com as having written this brilliant series. I hadn't ever heard of either the series or the author before, but fantasy recommendations are always worth trying :) What I really enjoyed was the sneaky way the story starts off as fantasy and then you slowly unveil the science behind what is called "magic".
You might recall the famous saying - A sufficiently advanced science is magic. So true in this series.
Blurb: If you ask, she will answer. If she asks, you must reply. A steerswoman will speak only the truth to you, as long as she knows it—and you must do the same for her. And so, across the centuries, the Steerswomen— questioning, searching, investigating—have slowly learned more and more about the world through which they wander.
