Oh dear, he's done it again,

This review is from: The Merchants' War (Merchant Princes) (Mass Market Paperback)
I hate marking a book down but the author's cynical use of of yet another cliff-hanger ending deserve the low rating.
If alternate history writers like Harry Turtledove can write satisfactory endings into books in long-running series then a similarly able writer like Charles Stross could easily do the same.
I'd recommend that you not buy this book until the next one is in print. And that holds true for Books One to Three. You'll have to buy them all or else your reading experience will be highly unsatisfactory. Such a shame to manipulate readers - the one's who generate the writer's royalties - in this way.
