Well, many of the characters are total bastards, and the world as a whole is rather depressingly violent, ignorant and backwards (sort of like the 10th century Earth it was based on). However, some of the protagonists (like the sorcerer Drusas Achamian or the prostitute Esmenet) are actually fairly good people. As for whether you are 'meant' to approve of characters or not, the author is a philosopher, and he draws heavily on (and is perhaps subtly critiquing) the ideas of Nietzsche, so moralistic approval (or the lack thereof) of characters is probably something he is trying to consciously play with.
