I have to say this book seemed bizarrely schizophrenic to me. It was partly a family saga sort of book but then had an incredibly weak spy plot mixed into it. The two things never meshed at all.

The main character seemed off to me from the start. He is 21 years old but speaks and acts like a man in his 40's. I never cared at all about any of the characters and the ending (view spoiler)
Disappointing. This wavered between 1 and 2 stars (mostly 2 stars) throughout. The weak ending sealed it as a 1 star book. The story was hard to buy and the main character was never made believable, which should be done by a good writer regardless of whether the reader likes the character or not.

I would have probably given it 4.5 stars. The book has an interesting story with great characters. Although there are some errors in the writing it was still a good read, i will definatly read the 2nd book in this series.
