I also found the ending was sort of interesting. However, I found it dragged on a little bit and was later than expected.

I agree; I kind of like the extra chapter.

The ending confused me but looking at it, this is the unique style of it's great author. It makes the reader to crave for more. This ending also leads the reader to debate with himself.

Same here. I'm not done with the books yet but I'm all over the forum being spoiled. I don't mind spoilers though. It lets me know if I have something to look forward to or not.

I don't think it was a bad way to end, because the way I see it, it was primarily just a set up for the next book in the series, and gave us not necessarily a resolution but a inkling that Haatim and Abigail's story wasn't over yet.

I have to say that I really enjoyed the ending. I felt like it was a great lead in to the next book in the series. I loved the battle with the demon, but also enjoyed the ending.

In my opinion if the book was ended after battle with Belphegor, there could be incompleteness. There must be some additional information about a dagger. It seems that dagger is the most important artifact in the series. Belphegor is after it. Moreover, the chief demon is after it. When I finished reading about the final skirmish, I thought: "Is it the end? No! What about the dagger? Abigail, you must find it. It is a very important thing!" And Abigail didn't disappoint me. :)

I agree. There must be some kind of a puzzle or question to compel us. Since we have a question in mind with the ending, we will read the second book to get the answer.

I thought the ending reinforced the concern raised time and again through the book; that the demons weren't necessarily the only thing that Haatim and Abigail had to worry about. SOMEBODY opened the warded door and got to the knife first; someone set off the firedamp in the cave. Who that person is, and what exactly Haatim's father is up to, is obviously something that is meant to intrigue us into reading the rest of the series.

Worked beautifully. Brava, Mr Cole :D

I thought the ending was fine as is. Good resolutions to major issues in book one plus a lead-in to book two.

I agree, I felt like it was a filler to meet a page quota. It felt like kind of a let down after the battle. I thought the battle with the demon was a good place to end it and then do the search for the knife at the beginning of the next book.

I happen to agree with the general consensus. I felt a line of dialog could replace the whole last chapter and leave you wanting more.
Follow your dreams, read a good book, and put your feet up with a nice glass of wine.
