The Host (The Host, #1)The Host by Stephenie Meyer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In Stephenie Meyer’s ‘The Host’ we enter a perfect world. There are no sick. There is no dying. There is just peace and happiness. At least that is what the aliens who have named themselves souls have made the world for themselves. But by doing so they’ve pushed humans to the brink of extinction.
Melanie is what remains of the resistance. At least, she was until she got caught. Now she is just another human turned alien, or so it appears when you stare into her eyes and take a glance at the back of her neck.
If you were to ask the soul that took over her mind you’d learn just how human Melanie remained.
Right away, the soul called Wanderer had problems with Melanie. She couldn’t quite make her be quiet and it scared her, it alarmed her, it annoyed her and it made her fall in love with a man she’d never met and a boy she shouldn’t want to give the time of day. But the more she tries to fight it the more memories Melanie throws at her; memories of a love that Wanderer just can’t live without.
Wanderer gives into the new human emotions she feels and allows Melanie to take her on a dangerous quest to find the love of their life and Melanie’s little brother. They near their destination but, close to death, they decide to give up. That’s when the rest of the resistance finds them and keeps them prisoner.
As Wanderer, newly named Wanda by the humans, stays as the humans prisoner she finds their love and Jamie, the little boy that both Melanie and Wanderer have a love for that can’t be beat. Slowly, Wanda gains the humans trust and day by day… becomes more and more like them until she reaches a point where she will do anything to save them. But she still loves her species. She understands that they can’t survive without a host.
And during everything, her and Melanie grow closer and closer until Wanderer wants to set her free and give her a her life back.
Somehow, she has to save the humans without killing the souls. She has to betray her kind while allowing the human species to grow… and the human species don’t like the souls. They want them dead, all of them.
How can Wanderer save the humans and stop them from killing the souls at the same time and set Melanie free without killing herself?
