Synopsis

The Host: A Novel: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience! * Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed.Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, 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.Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves--Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she's never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.Featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies, THE HOST is a riveting and unforgettable novel that will bring a vast new readership to one of the most compelling writers of our time.*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

About the Author

Never underestimate the power of your dreams...this is what author, Stephenie Meyer learned when she had a dream in June of 2003 about characters who had a quality of being real, and who she could not get out of her head. She was a busy mother of three young sons at the time, and had so many daily needs to be met. She began by writing down her thoughts when she could and started thinking about plots through swim lessons, potty-training, and late at night when the house was quiet. Within three months, she completed her first written piece...ever...Twilight! After submitting the manuscript to several publishers, it was chosen out of a pile of manuscripts, and was published by Little, Brown, where all readers fell in love with the multi-layered story of the young lovers.

Of course, the new book received many, many awards and the anticipation was feverish for the second in the Saga to be released. In September of 2006, New Moon was released to raving reviews and more than 25 weeks as #1on the New York Times bestseller list. Eclipse was released in 2007, and in 2008, the final book in the Twilight Saga , Breaking Dawn, was released at 12:01 midnight on August 2. All books of the series were adapted to full feature films, with record breaking grosses.

Stephenie lives in Arizona with her husband and three sons...probably hoping for another really good dream!
