For a debut novel this turns out to a fairly good book. There are a few issues with how the story flows but nothing terribly distracting. While not the top of the list it's certainly better than the thousands more trying to enter this genre. I'd look to see better releases in the future from this author once he's gotten his feet wet and learned from the experiences.
Unrelated to my rating: Since the copy I read was prior to editing I'm going to hope the mistakes I noticed are all fixed or removed, especially the apparent love of commas. Nothing ruins a good book more than a poor editing job.
