I wondered why Alexandra gave up one son for adoption and not the other one too. Perhaps she thought the Iksha won't find out that she had twins and tried to protect at least one of them.

I definitely think this wasn't elaborated on intentionally - makes for a great storyline in the next novel (which I can't wait to read!).
Despite not having a cliffhanger, the author leaves several loose ends. The next book in the series should definitely be more on these loose ends other than about Adam.

As Vikki was set out to find Adam in the first place, I do not think that might be the case. I think it might be along the lines of she sneaked Adam out but she could not sneak out his brother.

I'm hoping the twin is the good one since Adam is a terror. It would make me less uneasy that I disliked a main character so very much.
Seeing that he is raised by the Iksha, it would be interesting on how he turns out to be.

Well, this book is one installment of a series. I guess the author intentionally kept Adam's twin away to fully develop it in subsequent installments.

I too had a lot of questions about the twin. I also had a burning question about Terry. I can't wait to read the next book and find out more about what will happen and how the consequences of things the first book are going to play out.

I think that is the whole point about thrillers and suspense : they are cliff hangers which leave the reader with a lot of burning questions.

The first book really left a lot of gaping holes for the second book to fill.

In terms of cliffhangers, I am quite disappointed with how the book played out. The author could have done a much better job in posting a big cliffhanger at the end.
