Recently I've been reading Kate Elliott's Crown of Stars. I started the series a few years ago and gave up part way through book three. I just finished rereading book two and I'm running into the same annoyance I had with it last time. Basically, I absolutely hate Liath. It's sad because otherwise it's a really good series (so far that I've read at least.) The story and setting are interesting and the rest of the cast is really cool, I love Alain and Sanglant, and even most of the side characters, but Liath drives me absolutely insane. I know she was traumatized and stuff but does she have to whine and freak out about it so much? The scared little girl thing got very annoying very quickly and now she pisses me off to the point where I want to put the book down every time it's her turn to narrate.
Does she ever get better (or at least get over her fear of Hugh) or does she play the scared little girl the whole way through?
