The Host (Hardcover)
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 ...
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.

Highly recommended if you're a fan of Stephenie Meyer already or notRead More
The value is excellent for the book and you cannot match the low shipping cost anywhere. You would pay more in gas to drive to a store to purchase this book. Highly Recommended!!Read More
I decided to read The Host after I read the Twilight Series, well in between books in the series. If you have read the Twilight series, please do not try and compare those books to this one. The Host is a great book written by a great author. I won't lie, it did take me a little while to get into the book, but once I did I couldn't seem to put it down. This isn't a book that you would want to pass up. The world that the book takes place in is totally something that you could see happening, and the characters are ones that you could relate to as well. I love science fiction but a book about aliens coming to earth and inhabiting human bodies wasn't one that I thought I would enjoy. I looked over the book a couple of times while in a book store, but finally just went ahead and got it. I am very glad I did. I'm trying to get everyone I know that loves the Twilight series to read this book. If you haven't read the Twilight series this is a great way to get introduced to the writing styles of Stephenie Meyer, you will want to read all of the other books that she has written and make you a fan for life!!!Read More
After reading Eclipse, Twlight, and New Moon I was sure this book would be great. I have a had a very hard time reading it. It does not keep my attention and it is certainly different. I am not saying that it is a bad book, but just one that I don't care for.Read More
