What is a cliffhanger in a novel?
A cliffhanger is a plot device in which a part of a story ends unresolved in order to get the audience to return to the story in the next chapter.
They are a marketing tactic that drives readers to purchase the next part of the series. The reader is left excited, anxious, and craving to know what will happen next. Most of the time, it works for the author.

Why are cliffhangers interesting?
