rating: 4 of 5 stars
On the whole I was very surprised to find that this story was much more compelling than Meyer's Twilight series. The writing is better, the story more cohesive and the characters even more intriguing.
The premise: Earth is being over taken by parasites using humans as their host. What happens when the humans fight back?
The main character Melanie/Wanderer is complex, smart, entertaining, and compelling. The supporting characters are also well written and dynamic. In the end I got much more than I expected despite the slow start. Well worth the time to read it.
