I have joined the blog tour for The Host (Little, Brown and Company, 2008) by Stephenie Meyer best known for her Twilight Series. I read this book and thoroughly enjoyed it, but never got around to writing a review. My excuse is that The Host is more SF than fantasy.
However, I did have a chance to interview Stephenie at the behest of Library Journal. Hope you have time to read it.
Blurb: "Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact and continue their lives apparently unchanged. Most of humanity has succumbed.
When Melanie, one of the few remaining "wild" humans, is captured, she is certain it is her end. Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, was warned about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, the too-vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.
When outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off on a dangerous and uncertain search for the man they both love.
One of the most compelling writers of our time, Stephenie Meyer brings us a riveting and unforgettable novel about the persistence of love and the very essence of what it means to be human."
