Just finished reading this.
I did actually like the main character, Kal, as he was obsessed with striking dramatic poses, getting the wind to blow his large cloak around with legs in a wide stance, whilst holding a large laser rifle.
A very, very dark dystopian setting. Probably too dark for my liking, I mean I like a bit of rust and grimy bars etc, but this was probably overdoing it.
Luckily the book was quite short and while trudging through it was pretty boring, at least had some good violence.
