Finished Nights of Villjamur by Mark Charan Newton - a slow start

Finished Nights of Villjamur (Legends of the Red Sun 1) by Mark Charan Newton. It was a bit of a chore to get through it. There were no compelling characters. If any of the main protagonists had died off by the end it wouldn't have been a big deal. The coming ice age, or slowly dying world scenario is depressing and Newton did nothing the ameliorate that with bright or witty characters. Nevertheless the writing is competent and I am mildly curious as to how the rest of the trilogy will play out.
