Definitely worth the read. The author does a good job of making the characters relatable in just a few short pages. There were some good action scenes and the anti-nation sentiment was easy to feel.
My only criticism is that I wish it would've been longer... felt slightly unfulfilled with the story at the end, though I couldn't for sure say why... Hope to read more from this author.
