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?

Too many favorites to narrow it down. Think I've read all these books botu 4 times now. On a break so I can go back fresher and re-read again and savor.

Glad to find this littler world where we all adore these books. I keep trying to rec them to other friends w/out success :/

Me too! I must admit that I'm not really into fantasy myself, mostly because fantasy novels tend to have pages and pages of descriptions and very convoluted plots - unlike these which are very much character-based, the kind of novel I prefer!
My friends who are into fantasy are big fans of Tolkien etc ie. the more traditional kind.
