The Grass King's Concubine - Kari Sperring
There are some great lines in this book and some great moments of description. Sperring has a knack for taking you into the world that you are reading about.

So why did I stop?

I got to page 130 and still felt absolutely no connection with the characters. I couldn't stand the time changes that came out of nowhere and I still never fully understood what the problem was that Aude wanted to find out.

So, while the writing is beautiful, the execution left me with something to be desired.
