If you like dark fantasy that caters to Adults featuring likeable anti-heroes (think Joe Abercrombie, Mark Lawrence, Martin etc..) you'll probably like this. The world building is decent, character development is good enough (a little thin on supporting characters), narration is very good, and the writing is gritty. Its a bleak world starring flawed characters and the writing makes no apologies for it. There is a magic system but its minimalistic in impact which I prefer (no Harry Potters in here). This is definitely a strong start from an unknown author.
My two critiques would be to enhance the characters a bit in the future and spend just a bit more time world building. I like whats being created but feel its a bit shallow like I missed an important prologue. Point of fact this book can easily do with a prequel to better describe how the world came to its current state and better expand on whats driving the supposed "enemy". On the up side instead of frustrating me I'm left desiring to know more. This is definitely worth a credit and deserves much greater popularity and I'm sure I wont be alone in hoping to see a book 2 sooner rather than later.
