Nice idea, good paced, flowing writing, but rushed and salvaged end.

I was really looking forward to read this book. It's been in my wish list for some time now.
Everything was well till I got to the last chapter. The ending was brutally salvaged. Imagine this:
the whole book so far is interesting, details are nicely revealed, the story is not stalling.
And then you hit this rough patch, where an author with imagination could make a nice plot knot
out of it, but instead she decided to kill the main characters in a ridiculous situation. No logic,
just out of the blue, and we are talking about a family, with infants. Why the hell??? And how is
it possible, in one minute the relatives are described as fearful and not really reliable, the next
they are so trusted that our heroes leave their children in their care and "die together" ?!?!
The f is wrong with you? And not to mention the the final scene was just absurd.
If you can swallow this down, read this book. But if you are like me, and love complete and
thought through plot lines with good execution - don't, you will be disappointed in the way a good
story has been butchered.
