I love the concept and the writing isn't bad but there are huge lists of equipment in places which detract from the story. In more than one paragraph 'he' is doing something or other which, with 5 male lead characters is confusing and highlights the lack of depth to the characters when it doesn't matter which one is performing the action.
Finally the reference to Byzantium instead of Byzantine drove me mad. Byzantium is the place and Byzantine is anything related to it eg Byzantine army.
It was however clearly well researched and, despite the niggling irritations mentioned, the concept made me plough on to the end.
