Read full description of the books Dancing With Kings:I finally gave up at around 60%. It's such a shame because this author has real talent (see my review of The Winter Palace) but I just couldn't get into this book. Not only does it skip around between narrators and time period, but it isn't always clear what's going on. I normally give books I don't finish 1* but this is going to get a 2. There were some really lovely descriptions in it and scenes that got my attention. But ultimately I found I didn't really care what happened and couldn't slog on for another 40%. My advice: read The Winter Palace instead.
