Liked it enough to order the sequel

I have mixed feelings about this book. I wanted to love it; I read it straight through. However, I didn't like the main character, who was basically a former mob enforcer. She's driven by rage with two magical guns who (yes, "who" is correct here) egg her on. I really liked the dog, though and there was a hook at the end that got me to pre-order the next book in the series.
I think part of my problem is that I got dropped into an urban fantasy world that didn't get much explaining. Are "abnormals" good/bad/just normal folks with magic/something else? What is their status in the world?
I did like some of the twists and turns, but the problem with first-person narrative is that the reader is as surprised as the character at those twists. I prefer to have some foreshadowing, though.
If you are a fan of the author, you will probably like the book. If you are a fan of urban fantasy, you might try it out. I suspect the next book will be better.
This book really deserves 3.5 stars; I gave it 4 because I liked it enough to get the sequel.
