I finished Chains last night.  Much to my dismay, the story did not come to any sort of resolution.  The last page of the book was a notice that the story would be continued in another novel.  Pet peeve alert:  please indicate somewhere on the cover that this is part one of a series. 

So I am left with three characters in potentially dire peril.  A five-year old epileptic separated from her family and under the "care" of a brutal owner.  Her older sister a fugitive (escaped from slavery) trying to take care of a teenage boy with ?smallpox?.  And the story just stops. 

I honestly feel a little abandoned.

Maybe that's the point.
