You may know Stephenie Meyer's name due to her wildly successful young adult vampire series, The Twilight Saga
. She takes a break from that with her latest, The Host
; touted as her first book for "adults," it's a fun science fiction novel, with just a bit of romance peppered in to keep things interesting. The title refers to alien parasites who invade earth and take over the minds of their human hosts. Meyer should win many new fans with this effort, as well as thrill her current ones.
