No, Nicole. Nooooooooooooooooo.
I've read your blog and understand the change in direction you felt you had to take but the sudden shock of the ending being so abrupt and cliffhangery meant I couldn't rate this book fairly at all to begin with; but with a few days to cool down I think I've managed.
The writing, events and characters are excellent as usual and the dialogue is wonderful; but the end of it is excruciating, especially as it's unexpected given that all of the books in this series have been self contained till now.
I did love the book, just not the sudden shock of the ending. I still love this series and knowing that the next book is the last, therefore it'll be back to the standard of a book complete in and of itself, relieves me no end.
