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.
I have read The Host more times than I can count and each time I cannot put the book down even though I know that is going to happen. This is the first time that I have read a love story where 2 characters inhabit one body so I want very curious on how that was going to turn out because come on...there has to be a happy ending right? The beginning was a little slow since we had to get to know the new world that we have been thrown into but after that it is almost impossible to stop yourself from finishing the book in one sitting. What I liked the most is that it makes you think about the human race. Read the book and you'll see what I mean. ;)
