The Host

I don't care! This is a great photo. Don't even tell me we've all seen this type of thing before. Wait, who am I talking to? Must be the voices in my cat's heads.

This upcoming novel is by the author of the Eclipse books, a popular YA series about vampires and romance. This novel for adults is sci-fi! Its about how in the future, an alien species invades our bodies and takes over our minds. One woman is resisting her host, and thinking about the man she loves, who is hiding out somewhere. The host falls in love with the man as well, making this the first love triangle story involving only two bodies! Far out, sister!
