But the cliffhangers are what keep us wanting more (of the story). They are used to ensure that we will want more and want to buy the next book.

Jacob and Noor's quest may have been a bit foolish to attempt on their own. But that's what made it more of an interesting adventure, in my opinion.

idk how I feel about Caul's return - I have mixed feelings about that.

One last thing that I enjoy about these books is the ymbrynes. I love how they all confer with each other - kind of like a secret society.
I know, but I still don't like cliffhangers. 8)

I also liked the concept of the ymbrynes, though they did tend to be too controlling.
