Look, storytelling is a learned art. Learned, meaning, that you have to trash and redo, trash and redo, trash -- and -- re-for-the-love-of-derp-do until you get something solid, something right.
Clinging to the old method of how you've chosen to relay all this important information is not working. I don't want to dive into a fantasy book, and have some mystical narrator explain it all to me in the second chapter. It ruins the illusion of the story-being-revealed; you lose the mystery; you lose the wonder; you lose my desire to read your stuff.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO, Mykall, is GUT the living hell
out of this -- strip EVERY IMPORTANT DETAIL
-- then sit down with your plot overall, and find places to put them, where they fit. Then get your characters together, and find where you can weave it in with what they do, say, react, know, etc.
And if that isn't working, you need to make adjustments to your plot so that it does, eliminating a whole freaking chapter of infodumpy here and there, and moving the story along smoothly
Look, Mykall, if you can't get that done the first ten tries, try ten more times for each time you tried, and then do it ten more times for every time you attempted it; don't stop trying to get it right.
