Disappointed spinning out the strory

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I am giving up on John Pearce - it a shame it started so well and i really enjoyed the books, but we never get to any a conclusion with the story. it feels like the author is spinning out the store to get us to buy the next book. as you can see by the starts and I bet by the sales we are done...

Has An Ill Wind put you off other books in this genre?
