Sadly the book stops suddenly at the climax of the story, a point of high action and danger. I don't like cliffhangers. The next book isn't even out yet. Not happy :(
I like it better when authors make each book in a series a complete episode which comes to a conclusion. I feel like each book should have a beginning, rising action, climax, and falling action. Some high level plot points may not come to a resolution but the episode should end, rather than just stopping mid-action.
Here's a little graphic to explain what I mean. I love series that are like the first example. There seems to be a trend of authors leaving off books at a cliffhanger. I really hope that stops. As a reader, I really do feel cheated.
The richness in laying the groundwork for the different cultures encountered in the book was very well done by the author. Also, the creativity in establishing some of the "way things work" in this sea world gives an ability for the reader to really plunge into this world with both feet! For example, the whole concept of "singing whales": how it is approached by different groups, why whales are needed, etc., all fits together in a creative and unique way that is really captivating.
Indeed I am now waiting for the next installment, can't wait to experience where we are taken next!
I would have appreciated a bit of a "map" to the different atolls and the sea world.
I like the characters in this book. I can hardly wait to see what happens to her in the next book.
My only bad comment is I would like to read more. Where is the next book?
