The Host is the new smash hit novel by Stephenie Meyer, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the young adult vampire series, the Twilight saga.  As a stand-alone novel and the first Meyer book intended primarily for a mature adult audience, she refers to The Host as “science fiction for people who don’t like science fiction.”

A tale of body-snatchers who invade earth and become entangled in human civilization in ways no one could have predicted, this epic story is less about aliens and more about the heart of what makes us human.  It will entice the reader to think and perhaps to dream about that key elements that make us who we are, that define us, and that cause us to connect with and love another person.

Stephenie Meyer’s novels have been mainstays on the New York Times bestseller list.  In addition to her books, there is also a movie currently in the works.  Twilight, based on the first book in the Twilight vampire romance series, will open in theaters on December 12, 2008.
