Shadow march

I have just read all four books in the Shadowmarch series and I feel a little bereft. The ending wasn't really the ending, it left me wanting to know what happened to pretty much all of the characters. There was no closure. I guess I just like happy endings, although any ending would have been welcome, it just left me feeling bereft.

Re: Shadow march

I thought the ending was actually more satisfying than say MSTs ending. I remember thinking Tad got better at endings after I read it. What specifically did you want more closure on?

Re: Shadow march

Huh, I loved the ending of S'march.  And having JUST finished MST, I think I agree that it's better than MST (and I quite liked MST).  It's open to more story coming after, especially with Barrick going off to embrace his Qar heritage, but the general arc of the current story is wrapped up pretty well.  Apocalypse at hands of trickster god averted.
