“You’re a True-Man. What’re you doing with the Wyrds?”
Sanctuary by Rowena Cory Daniells

This is the third, and final, book in the Outcast Chronicles. The books follow the clash of two races and cultures. One of them are humans without magical powers and the T’Entuath, called the Wyrds, who have magical gifts. The humans hate and fear the Wyrds. The series is epic fantasy.

At the beginning of this book, the Wyrds have been driven into exile. They have a few humans among them, who are also outcasts among their own kind. I presume that the discussion is between these two. However, they aren’t main characters so the book opens with secondary characters. We haven’t really seen sympathetic humans characters in this series but maybe that will change.
