Good story, but ending was anti-climactic.

We end up not knowing the fate of several characters. One's fate is so anti-climactic, while others are just up in the air. I feel the need for a sequel.

Great story

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this story. It was well written and very well read. My only issue with it, and this may be a failing on my part, but I do like to have all the t's crossed and the i's dotted, and this story ending for me wasn't completely finished off. I don't want to spoil it for you by saying why, but I wanted to ask what happened then?? Perhaps it was self explanitory and I'm being thick.
Anyway I still really enjoyed it

What is it about Tom Bale?

I just can't make up my mind about Tom Bale. I find his descriptions unnecessarily long, sometimes predictable and at times I find myself questioning: I am bored of listening to this? However, something about his writing just pulls you in. He develops brilliantly sinister characters, and keeps you hanging on. Some parts of this book were very creepy, and Bale waits to the end to deliver several twists that were unexpected. Bale really explores the relationships between the characters which is essentially what Bales plots are built on.
I thought that the narration was good, and the characters clearly defined.
