The Host is by far my favorite Stephenie Meyer book. I was so pleasantly surprised when I read it -- by its imagination, its emotion, and its writing (much improved from Twilight, though probably still with room to grow). The first part took me a while to get into, but basically once she's found in the desert, I couldn't stop.

So yeah, I'm eager for sequels (or companion novels -- I couldn't really tell which she was intending).

BMW - does The Host have a definite ending then? No cliffhangers or unresolved mysteries?

They could be sequels or companion novels, because "The Seeker" sounds like it's coming from the seeker's point of view

Yeah there is definite room for sequels but it wasn't what I would consider a cliffhanger. You're not going to be banging your head in frustration waiting for the next one to see what happens lol. It could stand on it's own without seeming incomplete. I actually think more books in series should end that way, it's less gimmicky than ending mid scene.

Thanks, BMW, it's good to know. I'm pretty tired of cliffhanger endings, some work, but others, are infuriating!

Yeah, The Host ending is definitely not a cliffhanger. It leaves the door open for more books, but all the major questions are resolved. I had assumed the "sequels" would be companion novels too.

And like BMW, I'd love to see more series go that direction instead of direct continuations.

I agree 100% with this statement. The Twilight books were fine for what they were, but I think The Host is Stephenie's best book. The ending resolves all the issues in the book, but gives you enough to be curious about what happened to them after the story ends. I would love a sequel as long as it doesn't change the things I loved about the first book.
