Again, Stephenie Meyer enchanted me by this book. This story was nothing about vampires but rather another world of its own, a creative one, Wanderer's world. The scene opens with Wanderer, the soul being inserted into Melanie's body, a repel whom they hoped to tame but it turns out that Melanie is much stronger as well as her love and loyalty. What Wanderer always feared happened, she found human resistance.
Okay, so when they refer to the souls they mean here the aliens who invaded the Earth. And the Seeker is just sort of a jailer or a policeman who gets the humans leftover to the souls to insert one in their body, and by inserting a soul in their body it means they invade the body as well. A Healer is like a doctor and a Comforter is just a therapist for the souls. And they have some really weird names like Wanderer and Petals Open to the Moon, just plain weird.
Those souls saw in us humans brutality and thought invading it was safe the world our savageness. Wanderer was different, she did hate those emotions of humans like hatred and cruelty but then her relationship with Melanie develops, and her feelings toward humans change, she found love. At the very beginning, Melanie just fills her head with memories of Jamie whom she had a mother like bond with him. And Jared, her boyfriend and how it felt to be with him and eventually she feels some initial affection toward him and sets off on a journey to find the man they both loved. Yet, i think that her love toward Jared wasn't that strong, i think it was because how she was hugely affected by Melanie's deep love and memories and when Ian, the missing part of the love triangle came into the view, the suspense was even more. I enjoyed how it at some situations was a sort of an internal struggle in Melanie's body, it gave it a huge twist.
I just honestly really enjoyed reading this book and I can definitely see myself reading it again and I just can't wait for the two sequels to be out, which I don't know when will that be. But anyway, I really do recommend this book if you love that sort of thriller sci-fi novels with some romance, just give it a try. I loved it.
