An excellent read
I found this story's mystery incredibly enticing. This is a story crafted with tempo in mind, so that each chapter has nice mini-cliffhangers that make the reader want more and it does a great job at that.
Read the story now
The emphasis on the use of cliffhangers as a "glue" to the (upcoming) installments could be more polished, as the current ending seems to come abruptly and it is not entirely organic (I could give a more accurate account for this comment, but I do not want to spoil the ending to other readers). Some of the dialogues could also be tweaked into being more organic and less exposition-dumps.
All things considered, I thought I would love to see books like this being published: it has strong, lovable characters, an intriguing premise and a great integration between sci-fi and fantasy.
