I just bought this.

and i am completely lost. it feels like i have started in the middle of a series despite this being book one of a new series.

the author also doesn't do a good job on explaining the terms. wtf are first-children, first-child, second-children, father, spidergibble, etc... there are no context to any of these terms in this book erm

i like that there is action tho...

Ouch, yes - starting with Dark Intelligence is like watching Force Awakens without having seen any of the other movies. You can do it and it is technically the beginning of a new arc, but there is a lot you will be missing out on. I suggest you start with Prador Moon or Gridlinked, both will give you a good introduction to the Polity universe. Hope you give it another try!
