By now, most people are familiar with Stephanie Meyer's Twilight Saga,
but not all know about her other book and movie adaptation. The Host
hits theaters this March, and I don't think I have ever been more
excited for a Sci-Fi movie.
Earth has been invaded by an alien
species who believe the human race is far too violent. The aliens are
called Souls, and they can take over the mind and body of a human Host.
When humans start to notice a change in some of their neighbors,
friends, and family, many decide it is time to go into hiding. Melanie
would do anything to keep her brother Jamie, and the love of her life,
Jared, safe. This includes Melanie trying to kill herself, so that
another Soul cannot access her memories to hunt them down. But Melanie
survives, and she becomes the Host for the Soul, Wanderer. As Wanderer
goes about her life she comes to the startling realization that Melanie
refuses to fade away.
Wanderer now has to find a way to deal with the
new and intense emotions that come with being a human. At the same time
she is having a hard time breaking through the walls Melanie has put on
her memories; Memories of Mel's brother and Jared. As Wanderer gets to
know Melanie more, she feels the same desire to find them and make sure
that they are safe. A relationship between Melanie and Wanderer begins
to form, and soon they will stop at nothing to keep Jamie and Jared
