But it ended before anything was resolved with an offer to buy a fuller version of the next book. The writing was engaging but I felt a bit used and let down. The book has multiple stories and I fear they're all teasers. Maybe one day I'll come back to it, give it a second chance... in the mean time, I would rather read a complete story.

That's why it's called an "excerpt"
