I would like to see more in this series you got off to a good start with this one book
With that in mind, I can't help but mention some problems with this story. It seems like nothing much unexpected happens, and this is rather a dry narration or a history more than a story.
The only character with any personality has an obsession with steak and that's literally the only quirk any of these characters have.
The author reuses and restates things the characters were thinking twice, almost always, and in exactly the same way. To the point where I literally was yelling at my stereo speakers saying 'I heard you the first time!'
The narrator could use some improvement in pacing for the story, emphasizing the situations in a voice that reflects the characters heightened emotions or tensions, maybe retake spots that were not well enunciated. He did okay over all, however. This wasn't a character driven story I reckon. Maybe it is just meant to set up the sequels? Things could get better.
Maybe instead of jumping forward in time with small situation updates to move the story, some time could be spent developing characters, introducing fewer important ones, giving them personality.
I must say that I kinda wish I'd gotten a different book. I hate being so harsh, but there it is. Maybe try the next one in the series.
