Waterstones Says

Mixing chilling body-possession sci fi with yearning, passionate romance, The Host is a masterful, powerfully emotional thriller from the author of the bestselling Twilight Saga. A darkly twisted hymn to undying love and the determination not to relinquish identity, Meyer’s standalone novel is a gripping page-turner.

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that takes 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Stephenie Meyer is an amazing phenomenon-out of the brightness of her mind and spirit comes the illuminated darkness of her stories. For no matter how much pain her characters suffer, Meyer infuses the tales with light and hope.' Orson Scott Card, author of The Ender Saga * 'A fascinating, passionate, and unique psychological thriller. In The Host, Stephenie Meyer gives a new and surprising meaning to the phrase 'being of two minds!'' Katherine Neville, author of The Eight *
