Is that all there is?

I enjoyed this book, especially because of the unusual steampunk-type setting. My only problem is that the whole story feels incomplete. Is this the first part of a series? I couldn't find any indication that there are more stories of Zombay to come. It seems a shame to me that the author would spend so much time in world-building, only to use it in one book with quite a small main narrative. Maybe I missed something.
