This is difficult to review. I bought this book after reading Dogs of War and Guns of the Dawn, both of which were excellent, but didn't realise this book was part of a 10 book series.
This first book is certainly good; weaker than the others I had read, but then it's his first book, and we might assume he would improve.
But after book 3 in the series, I found I couldn't be bothered to carry on. I began to feel that events were likely to just repeat on and on, the main characters started to get a little boring, and I couldn't face the inevitable plot arcs they would follow. Had he concluded the story in 3 books, that would have been great, but 10 seems just too many.
