Though this was the first part in a series I did feel that I'd missed out by not having read the related series. I know that by nature novellas are short but this one was more about setting the scene for the series than building a relationship between the main characters. I couldn't really get into it. I did finish it, but it seemed to end abruptly, without having grabbed me as a reader.
