Una especie invade la tierra tomando posesión del cuerpo de los humanos y apoderándose de su mente. Casi toda la humanidad ha sido sometida. Wanderer, el "alma" invasora que se apropia del cuerpo de Melanie Stryder conocía los retos de habitar un cuerpo humano, las emociones abrumadoras y los recuerdos excesivamente vívidos, pero nunca esperó que Melanie rehusara a ceder el control de su mente. Melanie llena los pensamientos de Wanderer con visiones de Jared, el hombre que ama. Incapaz de ir en contra del llamado de su nuevo cuerpo, Wanderer añora a un hombre que jamás ha conocido. Esta circunstancia obliga a Wanderer y a Melanie a convertirse en aliadas para ir en busca del hombre que ambas aman.

Meet the Author

Stephenie Meyer
After the publication of Twilight, her sensational debut novel, Publishers Weekly chose Stephenie Meyer as one of the "most promising new authors of 2005" -- a prediction that proves true with each subsequent book.

Biography

According to Stephenie Meyer, the idea for her sensational debut novel, Twilight, came to her in a vividly detailed dream in 2003. Over the course of three months, writing at night when her children were in bed, the young Mormon mother of three developed that dream into the spellbinding story of 17-year-old Bella Swan, who moves from Phoenix, Arizona, to the tiny town of Forks, Washington, and falls in love with a beautiful, mysterious vampire named Edward Cullen. After feverish writing, painstaking editing, and a brief but frustrating round of queries, submissions, and rejections, Meyer finally connected with an editor at Little, Brown who fell in love with the manuscript and signed her to a three-book deal.

Twilight debuted in October, 2005. An immediate sensation, it appeared on several year-end best books lists and earned its author a rabid cult following among teenage girls. Since then, Meyer has continued Bella and Edward's story in bestselling sequels that have proved equally successful. Young readers cannot get enough of these riveting novels -- a captivating blend of vampires, romance, and suspense -- and parents rest easy knowing the books do not contain the graphic language and sexually provocative material that pervades some YA series.

Whether or not the Twilight Saga proves to have "Harry Potter legs" remains to be seen. Meanwhile, Meyer continues writing. She forayed into adult fiction with 2008's The Host, a chilling science fiction tale about the end of humanity, told from the perspective of an alien invader. And she makes it clear the door is open for further installments in her vampire romance. Clearly, this talented author has many more stories to tell.

Good To Know

Here are some fun facts from Stephenie's "unofficial" biography on her website:
"The unusual spelling of my name was a gift from my father, Stephen ( + ie = me ). Though I have had my name spelled wrong on pretty much everything my entire life long, I must admit that it makes it easier to google myself now."

" I met my husband, Pancho (his real name is Christiaan, but no one calls him that—it's not a long story, but it is a stupid one, so I'll skip it), when I was four, but we were never anywhere close to being childhood sweethearts. In fact, though we saw each other at least weekly through church activities, I can't recall a single instance when we so much as greeted each other with a friendly wave, let alone exchanged actual words.

This may have been for the best, because when we did eventually get around to exchanging words, sixteen years after our first meeting, it only took nine months from the first "hello" to the wedding."

" I am also a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and that has a huge influence on who I am and my perspective on the world, and therefore what I write (though I have been asked more than once, 'What's a nice Mormon girl like you doing writing about vampires?')."

"I can't write without music, and my biggest muse is the [British rock] band Muse."

A transcript of the dream that inspired Twilight appears in the book as Chapter 13, "Confessions."

    Una sorpresa

    Con la saga Crepusculo no quise leer mas a Meyer, pero me lo recomendaron y le di una oportunidad. Muy bueno, a diferencia de los otros, The Host es apasionante e intrigante desde las primeras lineas.

    El Huesped

    This Spanish version of The Host is really well translated.
    La historia sigue por completo, sin perder su esencia, ya que la version original es en Ingles.
    Esta novela es algo totalmente diferente a las regulares novelas de Ciencia Ficcion. La historia contada por dos seres diferentes sobre la invasion de seres alienigenas en el planeta Tierra.
    La diferencia es que en esta novela, hay romance, traicion y la larga y dificil lucha que debe enfrentar la protagonista: Wanda al tener que apoderarse del cuerpo y mente de la humana: Melanie, y recuperar los recuerdos de la mente d Melanie para poder aniquilar a los pocos humanos que sobran en la Tierra.
    Pero la vida de Wanda cambia de manera absoluta al darse cuenta que Melanie no dejara de luchar y proteger a sus seres queridos.

    Gonna be way better than Twilight

    Dude, I really hope this movie is better than Twlight. It has to be. I me, the books are awesome, but the movies are what give Twilight a bad rep. Just please, NO KRISTEN STEWART!!! If they stick to the book and get a goo leading lady, they're golden.

    To yolo girl

    In answer to your question, i personally love Jared AND Ian equally, but the latter is definitely cuter (in a way). I love Mel with Jared, and Wanda with Ian.

    Amazing movie. Only a lot of hard work and dedication could have made that movie as phenomenal as it was. And I'm not just saying that because I am a HUGE fan of paranormal fiction love triangles (or in this case, quadrangle). I just simply love the unexpectedness this story had, along with the action and romantic scenes.

    And the only way to have made this great movie was if the author was as experienced and talented as Stephanie Meyer is. Wonderful job.


    Now all I need to do is get hold of six dollars to actually read the book AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN instead of the one time I actually do.

    And see the movie again.

    To answer, title the post as 2x YOLO .
