28. The Oracle of Stamboul

This book started out great. Very intriguing. Good story. Can't wait to find out what  happens.
Back of book reads:
There are signs that Elenora Cohen is destined for an unusual life. It will be in the heart of the Ottoman Empire in 1877 that Elenora will encounter her true destiny as intrigue swirls around her.

Sounds good doesn't it? Well things are going great until the last few pages. That is when the author decides to NOT finish the story. Elenora is 9 year old when she runs away, never to be heard from again. EVER.
The last few lines of the book:
Whether she fulfilled Mrs. Damakan's prophecy or escaped it, whether she was indeed, the one who would set the world right again on it's axis, the answers to these questions we will never know for certain. And so it should be. For the stones in the river of history look different depending on where you stand.
REALLY! ???????????? Why even write the book???
Hated the ending of course.
Don't read!
