After a long series of books, readers start to build expectations as the books draw to a close – be it the optimistic readers that wish for a happy ever after and a blossoming romance between the two protagonists, or the readers that seek catharsis at the end. Regardless, more writers seem to be appealing to both sets of readers when writing their final books…
Without giving away spoilers (don’t worry, this is a spoiler-free zone), a lot of writers seem to be using this technique. Personally, I think it works well! Both readers are pleased and the other ending (be it death or romance) becomes a plot twist for the reader! It’s a clever way of keeping all readers happy!
