Hounding the Moon.
I almost put this aside (along with at least 3 other fantasy novels that didn't appeal), but instead, I continued.
Not sure what to say to explain my feelings. Initially, it actually grated on my nerves, but somehow, it kept enough of a pull to keep me reading.
There were quite a few elements that I didn't care for at all and the plot seemed a combination of too much death and too much silliness to be coherent (there is a little bit of EVERYTHING)...and yet, I kept reading. The novel was Frost's debut effort, and maybe she was eventually be able to find better tempo and feeling of authenticity because there are at least two more of her Tess Noncoire novels.
Another one for Carl's Once Upon a Time Challenge.
