The starting point is good and gives you everything you need to know to understand what's happening and it is good at telling you what is going on as things go along. In a way that keeps you immersed in the story. Everyone has a solid personality and if background information is needed then it is given in a way that doesn't interrupt the flow of the storyline. The world-building is really well done. It adds to the experience and story by making it feel all the more real.
