A very intriguing world with interesting characters. However, this one had the problem that first books in a new series sometimes have which is that about half the book is essentially doing worldbuilding. That is not to say that events did not happen in the first half of the book but it definitely felt everything was happening to the service of explaining some aspect of the world. It felt a bit weird.

Regardless of that I would definitely love to read the next book in the series to see what the author does with this world and characters now that a lot of the world building is out of the way.
