...had he ever been in the story before that point? Because the name sounded so... familiar... like a Healer or something--Healer Burns. It's likely that I'm just being dilusional, but...
I'm pretty sure - actually, no, I'm positive - he wasn't in the story before that.

I agree. He was a new character at the end, we haven't seen him before. =)

Ok question...

I'm a bit confused on Wanda and Ian's ages in the end...

How old is Ian supposed to be?

How old is Pet (Wanda's new body) supposed to be?

Why is Wanda's new body supposedly so tiny and weak? Is it because everyone else in the caves is like 6 ft tall compared to her?

I was so confused after i read the book the first time. I thought Wanda had been put in a child's body because she was so small and couldn't reach things and was really weak that she couldn't do the same work anymore. I was like..No! now Ian can't be with her because it'd be...like.. pedophile! but then i read it over and i'm pretty sure she's not in a child's body, but i'm still a bit confused on how old everyone supposedly is. please help...

I believe Stephenie said Ian is about 25, and Pet is, if I remember correctly, 16. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, though.

16 or 17 I think, because didnt she say she was 18 to Jaime because she wanted to be older than she was?

To Ian because she knew he was really proper like Jared and wouldn't allow himself to be with her if he knew she was "underage."

ok, so then Ian and Wanda are like 8-9 yrs apart then...

i dont know why this bothers me so much...

even my parents are 9 yrs apart!

what's that saying...age isn't a number it's how you compose yourself..or something like that.

i guess when you're stuck in a cave in the middle of the desert in a world where being human is kind of a lost cause... age doesn't really matter.

anyway..thanks to all who replied!

Yes. Her body's age was sixteen, and in the story her birthday was in two weeks. She was about to say "I'll be seventeen," but she stopped herself and added one more year to her age. In my opinion, she should have added a bit more, but I don't think she could have pulled it off. -wink-

I'm writing the Host from Jared's POV but it's getting increasingly more difficult. I assume that when Melanie left Jared and Jamie to go find Sharon she took the car that they used for raiding. How did Jared and Jamie get all the way to Chicago (to look for Melanie) without a car?
