I did find the last hundred pages or so sort of anticlimactic.
I read Vellum over Memorial Day weekend and enjoyed it up until the same hundred last pages and set it aside wondering what, exactly, I'd missed. Looking at the Amazon reviews (my last resort), I discovered that this was actually only the first of two books.
Honestly, that's my biggest pet peeve is reading and enjoying a book with the notion that it might be self-contained only to find (or, in this case, not find) that all will be revealed in the fascinating book coming out next spring.
