I think I'm getting too jaded for cliffhangers. When I read the last line of Plagues of Night
there wasn't a doubt in my mind that the next book would reveal that the explosion had merely briefly engulfed the station and not destroyed it. A little way into Raise the Dawn
I was going, "No f--king way! They actually did it!!"
That said, the ending to The War of the Prophets
was pretty damn cool. Try as he might, David Mack's body count will never even approach that one!
