    9.  Consider the last few lines of the chapter:

    “We’ll catch up.  That map of yours is doing the job.”

    Shade smiled gratefully.  Ahead of them he could see a ghostly brightening on the horizon,

    as if the sun were about to rise.  Only he knew this wasn’t the sun.

    “Here comes the city,” said Marina. (p. 89)

     

    How is this an effective closing to the chapter, making the reader feel something momentous is about to happen?  What techniques does the author use to create this effect?  Explain.
