"The Host" by Stephenie Myer

The Host

Stephenie Meyer's latest venture into the adult world, is a " claytons" science fiction novel. A science fiction novel for readers that normally dont like sci-fi.

"Claytons" normally is an Australian slang term for fake or subsitute, but this novel is efficacious! The main character, Melanie Stry­der is part of the human resistance against "alien invaders" somewhat similar to "Stargate" where a human is inflitrated by an "alien host".

This parasite host is called Wanderer, who eventually begins to show empathy towards her human host. A tentative relationship emerges as they seek the two loves of Melanie; her young brother Jamie and the love of her life, Jared.

"The Host" is an imaginative thriller, soft sci-fi ,romantic "package" hooking the reader at the end, into a definite sequel.
