Top critical review
I tried, really I did

Based on most of the reviews I wanted to like this book. After about 15 chapters I just couldn't get into it.
Too many side/superfluous characters (not like Robert Jordan's side characters where they felt like they belonged) that are just there for the sake of being there. It may be a "slow burn" type of plot which I'm used to having read works by authors like Brandon Sanderson, but other than the brief appearance of Dragons in the first few chapters it just didn't hook me.
The writing came off very odd to me also. Modern while other times dated and wanna be Shakespearian.
