Thought I had more to go (excerpt of another book took up 10%).

Black Powder War - Naomi Novik

Fell for that thing again where you see the percentage read at bottom of your ereader so think there's more of the story, then wham! book is done.  Extra bad with this one because not only was story done but it finished after actual story end with a long-ish "scholarly" letter, then author bibliography, acknowledgements, then an excerpt of next book.

 

So, I was expecting a longer tale.  It did finish at a very logical point -- just that pesky percentage showing...

 

Will be reading the next in series, Empire of Ivory - Naomi Novik  

 

I now have three reviews to write, including this one.
