I wasn’t expecting an engrossing, believable novel from the inventor of Sparkly Vampires, but that’s what The Host is. She took the idea from Invasion of the Body Snatchers: parasites infest the human race, and only a few people hold out. The POV is from one of these parasites, Wanderer, who can’t seem to shut out the human’s voice. So she follows her pleadings to her former lover, and finds a small cache of settlers hiding in the desert. Definitely recommended.
