This is the first part of a much longer story. It is an introduction.
That is really the long and the short of it. This part introduces several characters, several story arcs and lots of competing themes.
It's hard to say if the reader really gets to know any of the characters well in this part, it's over too quickly and there's so much going on, you really can't get a good grasp on any of them.
I imagine that the subsequent parts, of which we're told there will be at least two of, should allow for the reader to get more detail and greater character understanding.
I noticed no typos or issues.
If you want to start a twisting and turning story, try picking up this one. I will be reading the next part!
