I agree that Mel and Jared are so awesome together, their passion is really something that everyone wants to read more of, but since it's kind of conflicted while Wanda is there, there's a bit of bitter feelings left for me when I think about that. Even though I sympathize with Wanda, Jared and Mel, there is still some bitter feelings because of that conflict.

Wanda with Ian, on the other hand, seems like something so pure to me, because that love was born out of hate, which dismissed all hard feelings, and I really wanted to hear more about them. They are both so cute together, and I was really happy that Wanda found someone that she could have, and even happier that she was allowed to be with him in the end. =D

I just wanted to pose this question: Did Maggie and Sharon act normally with Mel after Wanda was out of her body? Or did they still find it hard to adjust?

I'm going to bet they were still a little freaked, but I think they might've gotten over it. But there's also the possibility that Melanie remembered how they treated Wanderer and didn't even want to have anything to do with them. It's like "Hey, Sharon? I pretty much lost my life to trying to find you in Chicago, and when I come back you repay me by wanting to kill me and not looking at me for a few months. And now you want to eat breakfast with me? As if." Yes, I know it was technically Wanderer in there, but still.

I love Melanie. She's my favorite, hands down. I love this book because of her. I don't understand why so few people like her, and just about everyone is in love with Ian and Wanda. If we ever get taken over by souls, I hope to god that I'll be like Mel.

OMG! ^^Yeah. I mean, she was the only reason I didnt completely hate Wanderer. Melanie was just so amazing & awesome. I think that she's the reason Im looking forward to possible sequels. I really dont get how Wanderer & Ian got to be the favorite. No one a fan of normal human relationships anymore? I still think if we are going paranormal, vampires & werewolves.

Vampires, Werewolves & Souls Oh My! [Oh no *shakes head in shame*]

I guess vampires and werewolves don't seem to be as out of the ordinary as they were! Now people can't keep their hands off body-snatching aliens as well.

I would love to see a sequel narrated by Mel. I wish part of the epilogue could've been when she woke up after having Wanderer removed. That would have been the icing on the cake, really. Melanie was one of the most important characters in the book, I think. Not only because her body is the one being used, but she's really the reason that Wanderer went native anyway.

I TOTALLY agree - that is my one complaint about the storyline! I really, really wanted to see that reunion with Mel and Jared - just them, seeing each other, recognizing each other, back in place loving each other!! WAAAA!! :cry:

I wanted 2 outtakes from SM & thats it.

1. Jared's POV from just before Melanie wakes up.
2. Melanie's POV of her waking up & her reunion with Jared.

I really liked Mel but I only really started liking her from the middle to the end of the book. I was starting to freak out when Wanda couldn't find her in her head. Mel and Wanda are like peanut butter and jelly, you can't have one without the other =]

I love Mel! She is really what human is. She's not totally selfless like Wanda, but there's enough to make her a good person. Doesn't always do the right thing, but she tries. She's strong, can be a little violent, but violence never hurt anyone. (can't believe I just typed that. :oops: ) She loves, she hates, she does it all. That girl is rad man. :D
