The Host by Stephenie Meyer

Summary: Our world has been invaded.

Just like our bodies.

Humans become hosts to the souls. Their minds handed over while their bodies live a semingly unchanged life.

Humans that have not been captured, living a life in hiding, are called "wild".

That's exactly what Melanie Stryder was before she was captured.

Souls that are placed into human bodies are warned about the challenges.

Overwhelming emotions. An abundance of senses. Vivid memories turned into all too vivid dreams.

Wanderer was warned of all these things when placed inside Melanie.

But there was one thing she was not warned about at all, Melanie's refusal to turn herself over to Wanderer.

Wanderer though, has a job to do.

She has to look through Melanie's memories, thoughts, dreams, in the hopes of finding the other hiding, "wild", humans.

But, Melanie has a different plan.

She gives Wanderer visions of the one man that Melanie loves, Jared.

Wanderer begins to want the man Melanie loves, the man she is supposed to expose.

Melanie and Wanderer are soon forced to become allies which sends them on a dangerous search through the desert, following clues left by an all but crazy uncle.

They hope to find the one they both love, but it might just be for different reasons.

Rating: 5 Stars

Reveiw: Stephenie Meyer has proved to me that she can write more then a teenage love story. The Host is a different love story for our time. With this book, there is darkness and danger followed by pain and suffering, but somewhere in there Stephenie finds a place for hope and light to shine through. The Host happens to be very hard to put down. I read this 600+ page book in less then four days. You have to know what happens next. Even though this book doesn't really have any major cliff-hangers to speak of, The Host definitely leaves you sitting on the edge of your seat, yearning for what's next. This is really an amazing book. Few authors probably ever get the chance to write something this brilliant. Along with The Twilight Saga, Stephenie Meyer has showed us that her and her books aren't going anywhere for some time.
