The Host' Book

The novel introduces an alien race, called souls, who take over Earth and its inhabitants because they believe humans to be too violent. The book describes one soul's predicament when the mind of the host body refuses to cooperate with her takeover.

Melanie Stryder is one of few "wild" humans - rebels who have evaded the alien souls that have taken over the Earth. With her younger brother Jamie and the man she loves, Jared Howe, Mel is on the run from souls who hunt down host bodies for use. Souls are creatures that rely upon host bodies to survive. After insertion, they erase any mental presence of the being there prior and establish a claim over the body and mind. Earth is Wanderer's ninth planet, and Mel is her ninth host body. Upon waking inside her new body, she is shocked not only by the vividness of human emotions, memories, and senses, but quickly learns that Melanie Stryder is not willing to give up the entirety of her mind.

Wanderer is bombarded with memories and her host body's yearning for Jared and Jamie, and finds herself in love with the humans and desperate to see if they are still alive. On a road trip to Tucson, Melanie remembers her Uncle Jeb telling her about a secret hideaway he once made. Wanderer sets out to find the hideaway, with a vague sketch of the path from Melanie's memories, and is found by Jeb on the verge of death, incredibly exhausted and dehydrated. She is taken back to the caves in which some "wild" humans live, but is treated spitefully as they believe Wanderer to be a "parasite" in Melanie's body. Kyle O'Shea and many others attempt to kill Wanderer, but are stopped by Jeb and Jared (who's conflicted) who have been watching over her. Given time, Wanderer, now becoming known as 'Wanda' (Jeb's doing), becomes a part of the routine by working, eating, and becoming an unofficial history teacher after evening meals; some even grow to believe that Melanie is present in her mind as well. During this time, Ian and many other humans, such as Wes, Lily, Walter, and Mel's younger brother Jamie, befriend Wanda. Kyle tries to kill Wanda by throwing her into a river. He is unsuccessful and is about to fall into the river himself when Wanda saves him. A tribunal is held and it is decided that Kyle is allowed to stay, though many of Wanda's friends are upset about this decision, particularly Ian, who believes that Kyle deserves to die after his plot to kill Wanda. Meanwhile, Ian begins to fall in love with Wanda. After discovering this, she is confused with her own feelings because of the fact that Mel caused her to love Jared, too.

When Jamie returns from a raid with an infected cut on his leg, Wanda and Jared sneak out to a hospital where she goes undercover to steal supplies to bring back to Jamie and the rest. At this point the humans realize that Wanda can be of use to them as a raider, because she is trusted by other souls. Following another raid, Wanda decides to reveal her biggest secret: how to remove a soul without killing either the human or the soul, a procedure that Doc had been attempting unsuccessfully. She promises to teach Doc under two conditions: first, they must to send the souls to new planets without harming them, and second, he must to remove Wanda's soul from Melanie's body and bury Wanda next to Walter and Wes, because as she puts it "she does not want to be a parasite any longer".

Once Ian is asleep, Wanda sneaks away from him, as he is enraged at the idea of Wanda ending her life so that Jared can have his Melanie back. She realizes that she too loves Ian. Later she sneaks away and has Doc remove her from Melanie's body. However, later she awakens in a new body whose original owner did not consciously return, and it is revealed that none of the humans wished for her to leave and prevented Doc from keeping his promise. The book ends with the rebels, when on a raid with Wanda, discovering another rebel group who also have a soul among them. This discovery suggests that humanity and Souls together may still have hope for the future.

This is where the Christian books for children with great stories and illustrations will come in handy, especially when they have images that can capture the young reader's minds. There are many special Christian-based books, like the Adventure Gear for God's Kids, which are written in an easy-to-understand language that will help readers to learn about the bible and its characters.

I just wanted to thank you for everything. For one of the best feminist SF novels I've ever read. For the part of The Wasp Factory so brilliantly viscerally horrific that I had to put the book down and go out for fresh air after reading it. For those amazing short stories. And thank you for letting us know about your illness so that everyone who loves and appreciates you could tell you about it.

There are lots of on the internet stores accountable for the purchase of those Wholesale Jerseys and reliable Packers Jersey; they may instant you for the nearby distributor for help. Of course, it is replica clothes for youth and adults to get satisfaction from inChina, but they appear so correct and standard Donald Driver Jersey that you just would swear.
