Stephenie Meyer’s sci-fi novel The Host came out in May 2008. Since that time, a new chapter debuted when the series hit paperback, and now a new introduction is out that gives insight into the conquest of the alien race, The Souls.

THE HOST by Stephenie Meyer, the author of THE TWILIGHT SAGA. Read the excerpt. In theaters 3/29!

    There was a new chapter in the paperback? I’ve only read the hardcover. Does the new chapter add anything significant to the book? Where does it fall in the story?

      It’s from Mel’s POV after she gets her body back.

      I was wondering the exact same thing! Anyone have some insight into this additional chapter?

    Thanks guys! Glad I don’t have to rebuy the book to read this.

    It’s been years since i last read the host, glad to be hearing some new news :)

    You keep coming out with new stuff for The Host but you won’t release Midnight Sun. WTF!

    This chapter isn’t new. I read it back in August along with the rest of ‘The Host.’

    Anyway, I was always baffled by how Meyer could describe a alien race who commits genocide on multiple planets as “pleasant.” The way Wanderer justified their actions in the book made her look like a arrogant little monster.

      It’s the introduction that’s new. My mistake:P

        What was the point of the introduction other than repeat what’s already in the book?

    So the introduction is new and there is also an extra chapter at the end thats new? I don’t like the introduction, It explains too much. I found it exciting to not know what the aliens were and why they landed on earth. I liked the suspense in the beginning and the intro reveals all of it.

      oh nvm I remember the chapter at the end, it’s new but old, came out a while back.
