Yes, I am aware that Stephanie Meyer is creator of the *puke* teen-vamp Twilight novels. BUT just turn a blind eye and take a leap of faith into this alien post-apocalyptic adult novel. Those wary of vampire teen angst will be pleasantly surprised by this emotional and action filled story. A species of altruistic parasites has assumed control of humans. Melanie Stryder, one of the last survivors has been captured but won’t surrender her mind to the alien soul called Wanderer. Overwhelmed by Melanie’s memories Wanderer sets off to find Melanie’s friends and family.
