It's no small accomplishment that the large cast of characters is well-developed and interesting in this relatively short piece; their interactions in some ways reminded me of Glen Cook's Black Company, which I also enjoyed. The characters very much make the story, with the main point of view coming from a new recruit learning the ropes as well as the stories and idiosyncrasies of his companions. That said, the setting and the characterization of the world are also fascinating, so I suspect I'll look more into them shortly. The world seems to be a compelling mix of steampunk, technology, necromancy and other magic. If you think you might enjoy any of those things (or an adventurous mercenary group story) I highly recommend you give the title a whirl. After reading this work, I think that Skull Island eXpeditions is a new imprint to watch, and I'll be looking at their books by other authors in the near future (and I hope to see more from Mr. Gross).
Downside was predictable plot progression. I didn't feel surprised by the twists or deaths that came in this novel. Again more lore was hinted and probably will be added in future releases but this let me feeling indifferent to wanting to know more.
