Favorite bits in Melusine?

I haven't read all the messages posted in the past, so not sure if you've already discussed this, but what are your favourite sections in the books?
To start with Mélusine, my most re-read bit is definitely chapter 8, when Felix and Mildmay meet in Hermione, and not less importantly, when Mildmay and Shannon meet for the first time. Talk about chalk and cheese!
I liked the bit in the tower when the annemer were standing together in a corner while the wizards were trying to banish the fantome, and on hearing Mildmay and Bernard talk 'Lord Shannon gave us this look like he'd found a dead rat under his bed, and moved further away'.
What a difference to the end of The Mirador when the two brothers are on their way out of Mélusine and they meet Shannon. By then he treats Mildmay quite differently!
I was also puzzled in that section when Shannon is nosing around and about to step into the circle, Felix warns him not to. Could the fantome do something to an annemer? I was under the impression that he could possess/manipulate only wizards. Or is it the same as ghouls, bad for everybody?

I really need to reread the books (too many other books are in my head at the moment). Off the bat I have no idea, but I agree with you on Felix and Mildmay's first meeting.
By and large I really like the interaction between thhe two of them when Felix is not playing the big bully ^^ And especially in Mélusine, the way Mildmay cares for his brother and doesn't just dump him somewhere, no matter how difficult things get.
