" I've been trying to force myself to finish this book for awhile now. Maybe someday I'll manage, but as it is, it sucks. None of the characters are fleshed out. The humour is puerile (and while I will admit, this does sort of fit Elizabethian times, I don't get why time has stood still since that time period because just replacing tech with magic wouldn't cause fashion and culture to stay stagnant). And I'm rather surprised that anyone without a good knowledge of Elizabethian era vocabulary can follow it. This, in fact, was the thing that bothered me the most in that somehow, vocabulary and language haven't changed in over 400 years. It's impossible to suspend disbelief and that coupled with the unlikeable characters and so far non existent plot makes it damn hard for me to want to keep reading. "
