I am taking a page from Sarah Rees Brennan’s book of How to Torture Readers (TM)! Mwahahaha!
But yes, I have been getting many tweets and messages from readers who have developed a love/hate relationship with the book because of its ending. This is what happens when you have one big story to tell and it’s cut in two halves. Er … sorry? :) The good news is: The sequel is finished! The rest of the story is coming next fall! (Which really isn’t that far away. Just think, if you were a sequoia tree who lived 1000 years, 1 year is like nothing.)
