Well, I'm not quite sure how to explain this, but I will try. I am writing a series of fantasy books at the moment. I think it will be a trilogy. My question is whether it is suitable to end book one in the middle of an event? For example, MC escapes the bad guys, and then I end the story with him setting out to rescue another character from the same people? The time period between the final scene in book one and the first scene of book two would be about an hour. So is it acceptable to leave one book without being concluded? Would this be frustrating for the reader? Or should I aim to wrap it up properly and have each book like a separate event, with start, middle and ending? Hm, not sure if this goes in plot creation or not, so sorry if this is the wrong forum.
