Finally got a chance to read this book and it was beautifully written but I wish there had been more exploration into dragons and their make up. 
I was expecting many more stories of discoveries but the book focused mostly on one of the MC’s adventures.

Main character was uninteresting and insufferable, side characters were poorly developed, plot was non-existent until 60% of the way through. The book picked up a bit around 50%, which is the only reason I finished it. Though I did end up listening at 1.85x speed, which is way faster than I normally listen to audiobooks, just to spend less time on it. I won't be continuing this series.
