About this item

The author of the Twilight series of # 1 bestsellers delivers her brilliant first novel for adults: a gripping story of love and betrayal in a future with the fate of humanity at stake.

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed.

Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves-Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she's never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.

Featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies, THE HOST is a riveting and unforgettable novel that will bring a vast new readership to one of the most compelling writers of our time.

As good as Twilight Saga!

Customer review by ladythatcher

5.0 stars by ladythatcher

I recently became obsessed with the Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer, so I was wondering if The Host would be just as good. I wasn't sure, but I ordered it anyway. Once you figure out who is talking when in the first couple of chapters (I was sick when I was doing it so it made it a little difficult to follow) the book flows seemlessly. I quickly became engulfed with the desire to keep reading and I did not want to put it down. I don't know what it is about her writing, but she has the capability to draw you in and keep you wanting more. I do not know if she plans to do any sequels to this one, but she wraps it up nice and neat at the end. You will be satisfied with the conclusion and not worried if you are waiting for the next one.

Stephenie Meyer has written yet another exceptional novel that captures your attention from the first page to the very last. I read the previous reviews prior to purchasing this book and I don't understand why others felt the first half was confusing. If you love romance mixed with suspense this novel will keep you up late at night and leave you wanting more when your finished.

I read all of the Twilight Saga in 6 days, so when I heard that Stephanie Meyer had another book published, I practially went 500 m.p.h. to get to Wal*Mart. I expected the book to be near good, but when i got into the book, I couldn't get out. Honestly, this book kept me up all night reading it. I know this might be really hard to believe, but in ways it is so much better than the Twilight Saga. I just can't believe how amazing this book is.
