Summary, etc.:
When an unseen enemy threatens mankind by taking over humans' bodies and erasing their minds, a young woman risks everything to protect the people she cares about most.
Earth has been taken over by aliens in crisp white outfits, with each one taking over a human 'host' so the alien race can save the planet. Fewer humans are alive, and young Melanie has been on the run with her kid brother, Jamie, and her Louisiana honey, Jared. The Host opens with Melanie's capture, and continues on her odyssey as the alien who attempts to overtake her, Wanderer, battles inside Melanie for control of her body and mind.
