Publisher Description

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that takes 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.

Customer Reviews

Dwmands ,

Great winter read.

A little predictable but fantastically imagined and well written. Shows a depth beyond vampires and a healthy kind of love between characters. Highly recommend it.

Just another love story

Yep, agree with other reviewers that the first 80-100 pages were a little slow but that things got more interesting after that. The story IS kind of interesting but I was disappointed that there was so much anguished 'lurv' - it really reminded me of the angst in Twilight with all the melodramatic wondering by the characters as to how things could possibly work out (of course they do work out) and the noble (and irritating) tendency of the characters to sacrifice themselves for their loved ones (just like Bella and Edward).

Read it if you loved Twilight but don't expect anything radically different to the previous formula.

SiFi but not!

I liked that Stephanie chucked you right into the middle of the book, no slow start like most of them. I felt I had to guess what was happening at the start, but I liked that. As per her books, I couldn't put it down one it got started. A good read for those who like love stories with a twist.
