the story ended too sudden and I believe the author made that so that we should have more room of thinking like what could have happened next. It ended in tragedy

That's an interesting one from you. I for one, I am always itchy to find out the final outcome of everything. I respect your opinion anyway.

Yes, there were some issues that were unresolved. It should be revealed in the sequels though.

haha, personally i think the ending was superb. It came a time when obviously i expected the plot to finding its edges after great levels of climax. Anyway, you can carry your opinion to the banks. Its valid, who knows.. maybe you found the book so interesting and might have forgotten your fingers opening the last pages
