A story that warms on you

For about the first 60% of this book I was of two minds about it. The overall plot, while following others of this type (ruler forced into exile by a conniving court with situation exacerbated by a menacing neighbouring realm) was somewhat predictable but its main characters were engaging and I found I wanted to know how they made out. Against this, there seemed to be a cast of many whose stories were hardly related/not related, almost as if they constituted a volume of short stories within the main one. Also, the writing style seemed to be aimed at older children/pre-teen and the narrator's efforts tended to reinforce this impression, but there were definite adult references which I wouldn't like to explain to this type of reader/listener.
The last third, however, was a marked improvement on these criticisms. The pace quickened, the action and tension increased and the language and narration became more "adult". A number of the unrealted stories were tied in, or were left moving in that direction. We are left with a young queen striking out on her own, without a plan but with some grit and determination to right some wrongs. I'm getting the next book.
