i loved the ending...i did not see it coming at all! i was in ears since she decided what she was going to do...i thought they would put her in a new body but then she said no to that just seemed like there was no way around it....i was in pieces...=[ i was extatic when she didnt really die!

i personally was very happy when mel and jared got to be together...=]...ans i thik the new body that cant really do much is kinda sad..but ian wont mind...he loves her for her not the he said...=]!

i totally didn't expect it to be like that at all. It was so sad. I cried.
I love it even though it was unexpected.I think that they should make a sequel anyway because i wanna see what happen between mel and wanda.

They said that they had waited until they were worried about atrophy in the muscles happening but i didn't think they waited that long. As well, I figured she was just weak because she was physically smaller and also because before wanda was put into the body, the body was not used to physical exercise in her past life as pet. She seemed very waited upon and anti strenuous labour as Pet. Living in a cave is a lot of strenuous work for a body that isn't used to the physical demands of hard living. However, I kind of wished that he body had reflected her inner strength a little more.

Gosh it was weird to imagine Wanda as small and weak! But still i love that fact that they found her a body..i didn't really expect that at all..
I wonder...In the sequel if those new humans will move into the caves, or Jeb's group move to wherever they are?
so suspensful!

I totally thought I saw it all coming...I KNEW Wanda was going to sacrifice herself for Melanie and that it was possible to do was her BIG SECRET in the whole book. So last night I stopped reading after they started the operation to take her out, thinking that the part after the blank pages was going to be Mel's POV of waking up, getting to be with Jared, etc.

This morning before I came to work I wanted to finish it and I was SHOCKED! I can't believe I didn't see them keeping her coming, although it made perfect sense. And I thought SM was just setting us up to buy the sequel by them getting captured by the Seekers or something, not by finding another human group like them with another Soul. I loved that.

I actually liked Wanda's new body...I think she'll work to make it strong, too, and since it's younger maybe she'll get to live longer. I also loved it because Jamie picked it out and that is amazing!!!

I am definitely looking forward to a sequel but don't feel desperate to have more to read about that world right now--I've got to have some downtime to think about all of it!

Did you see this ending coming or were you expecting something else?
At first I thought that Wanda would sacrifice herself for Melanie, but I was also hoping that they would find a way to save Wanda so that she could be with Ian, and for the second time in my life I predicted correctly while reading a book!

And how do you feel about Wanda in a new body? How does it change the way you think Ian and Wanda will work as a couple? How about Jared and Mel? Or the rest of the people, for that matter, working with an alien?

I don't really like Wanda's new body, it seems to fragile for her personality. I think that Ian and Wanda's relationship will stay the same, now they can truly be together.
I was happy that Jared/Mel and Wanda/Ian got their happy endings (minus the fact that the world is still being run by aliens).
I was not surprised that they chose to keep Wanda once they found a host body where the human soul would not come back, they all had learned to love her.
