ahh i loved the host, despite my hatred of the twilight series. I have to say i found the host so gripping and the story line was pretty good. I would like for there to be a sequel and even if I didn't I'd probably still read it anyway so...
But really Stephenie Meyer- I think your excuse for being unsure as to write this book is terribly lame. You're scared to kill people off because the world you write in is a dangerous place? Sorry did I just read that correctly or are my eyes deceiving me? Y...more

I am Honestly worried. I thought the ending to the host was perfect and now there are going to be sequels? Umm personnally i think she should just leave it alone and NOT make it a movie!! God im tired of them making a movie out of it and screwing the entire thing up!!! Bleh just like twilight saga!! Amazing books not to great movies. I hope that stephanie does a good job on these sequels and TAKES HER TIME!! She rushed Breaking dawn and thats why i feel it was just "Thrown together". But i loved...more

Uh guys? Hate to break it to you but this book is NEVER going to happen.
She said in 2012 that there MIGHT be a second book then later on confirmed there'll be a sequel LATER in the year.. So where can you get this supposed 2012 published copy? Nowhere. Because you can't rely on her to deliver.
How long ago did she say I MIGHT continue with midnight sun? And look here, it's 2012 and has this maybe turned into a yes, even a no? NO. So you can keep it in your to-read list and rate it whatever but t...more

I cannot wait for this book ! I loved the Host, and it remains as my favourite book . My only problem is that I hope she doesn't do what i've found in quite a lot of sequels. I've found that quite often, some how the couple are separated, which I do find pretty irritating. It's gotten to the point where you can predict what will happen to them. I understand that bad things happen and good things don't stay forever but still why cant the couple stay together ? Wouldn't the fact that they stayed t...more

To come out in 2012? They should really add a 'Maybe' after that. Stephenie is like the most unreliable author out there. Midnight Sun, anyone? Just because she said on Oprah (or where ever) she hoped to do two sequels to her best book, doesn't mean she will. I hate to sound so mean, but I'll believe it when I read it.

Edit May 8th, 2012:

See this -> 'Stephenie Meyer has said that she might write two sequels to The Host.' <- That is in the blurb! How shameful!!!!

I nearly jumped of my bed when saw this book on the list of "Most Exciting Upcoming YA Books" on current site! Wow - I thought, a continuation of The Host?! How did I miss the announcement?!
But after I read about it... OMG! 2012?! Are you serious?!
I can agree to this timeline ONLY if the Midnight sun will be finished and published in 2010 :))

But anyhow, though I agree with some of the comments here that some endings are better off untold, I'm still gonna get my hands on this book as soon as it...more
3 Cheers for Stephenie Meyer!
Stephenie Meyer is in the midst of writing the Host sequel! The Host will defintiely be a trilogy!!!

Right now I'm just so excited for The Seeker and The Host movie. Words can't express how excited I am right now.

Edit: Ah, it looks like the book description was fixed at some point. Thank you to whoever changed it--it's now much more obvious that the entry is a placeholder for a potential book, and not an entry for a book that's already been written.

Am I the only one who's calling shenanigans on this book entry? Because there's no ISBN on this entry, there's no description for the book, and there's no publisher name, even though it's supposedly already been published. Also, Amazon doesn't have a link to t...more

IF, IF, if, if, if!!!!!
If she writes these sequels, keeping in mind she might not. But let's just say she does, OK, I don't know if I'll like them. Everyone kind of got there happy-ending (apart from the fact that I really don't like Wanda's new body, couldn't she have been a little better?). Why ruin those endings by telling us more about their lives. Something tragic is just bound to happen, and I'll be sitting there, probably mourning a favorite character. Or she'll do something stupid, and h...more

“Tonight in Philadelphia Stephenie Meyer announced that she is currently writing the The Host sequel.”

Is this a joke? I mean I- I can't even..

I'm a mixture of insane, insane, insane excitement,

And this horrible, horrible, horrible dread that sequels may tint the flawless world Stephenie Meyer has created..

Well anyways, that's just how I feel.. Thought I'd let all of you guys know (:

Hope you're having a great day wherever you are!

I hate that this and the other sequel will probably never exist. Meyer's extremely lame excuse for not wanting to kill main characters off in a dangerous world is ridiculous. It probably half-killed J.K. Rowling to kill off as many beloved characters as she did in the HP series, but she understood, as Meyer clearly does not, that confrontations between good and evil usually result in a lot of bloodshed on both sides. Only if we as readers suspend our disbelief beyond reason could we accept a wor...more

I'm not quite sure how I feel about this. I really did like The Host, and when I'd first read it, I wanted a sequel, mostly because I couldn't get enough of the world she'd created. But after re-reading it a couple of times, I like the way it ended. Perhaps if she writes the sequel as a separate story with separate characters, but still obviously within this realm of humans and souls, then perhaps it would be okay. I'm just not sure where she will go from the ending of The Host if she continues...more

If something happens to Ian I will throw this book into the Great Canyon.
Okay, I really liked the writing style and the love story in The Host, however, the idea was a little strange to me, but I still plan on reading this. I'm very nervous because the ending to The Host was fine and now, I'm anticipating something bad happening. Then again, I was anticipating a second book. I mean, it can't end with only a few people in a cave, no one will find them, the end. I just don't want anything to happe...more

The only way that these sequels will really work is if the humans can start to take back their world. If souls can be converted to helping the remaining humans see to that, the continuation of the series will be bad-ass.

Now if the souls and the humans plan on living together in peace to make a better world? I don't know. I can see the possibilities of it, but Stephenie would have to take the Avatar route, because humans and aliens living in harmony as a whole won't work.

I don't specifically thin...more

Oh goody. Why would they even add this book here if there's a possibility that she might not write it? Pssh. Giving us false hope. She'd better write this... and it better be good. Or else...

FINALLY. She's finally writing it.

The Seeker is the second book in The Host trilogy by Stephenie Meyer.

Stephenie Meyer has announced that she is working on The Host sequel. I have to say, I wish she worked on it earlier. But she must've been busy with many projects, such as The Twilight Saga movies and The Host movie. Hopefully, it will be out by 2014.

I recently watched The Host movie, and it was amazing! When The Seeker has been written and published, they should make a sequel.

DX I am dieing to read this book. I'm not a huge fan of the twilight series, (although I did give them 5 stars) the host was one story I thought was very interesting. After finishing the first book, I imedently jumped on google and searched to see if there were going to be more books. XD there's a third also, but as you can see that is a long time in comming considering the release of this one is not for a while. Amazing read. Can't wait!

Honestly, I don't think this book should be written. But if there's one thing we've learned about Ms. Meyer, it's that she'll write anything for money, just as long as we don't mind some emo whining while she does it. I think the book would have been perfect as a standalone. You hear me Ms. Meyer? Not everything needs to be fully explained! That being said, I'm curious to see where she'll take the story. The host was miles better than twilight and at least the heroine had a biological excuse for...more
I don't think she is for sure writing these yet because it isnt on her website and she never confirmed if she was going to write more on The Host or not. If she is though that'll make my day! The Host is one of my absolute favorite books
Morgan Walsh
I don't think there's all that much Ms. Meyer can do with this series, unless she writes the second and third books from another person's (who isn't Wanda) point of view.
The Host was a good read, but The Soul will probably be lacking in its predecessor's shadow if it continues with Wanda's story.

I just thought of something that could make this series excellent--that is, if it doesn't create an all-out war.
So, you know how the souls think they're all innocent, and are putting their hosts to bett...more

I think Myer has become lazy after the Twilight series were made into movies! Quite frankly I'm pissed off! Even if she doesn't wish to continue with this story line why hasn't she released anything in awhile?!?!

I personally hope that the sequel will be just as good as the first. When I heard about a sequel coming out, I had mixed feelings. The host was a book that could stand alone and have many people's attention wrapped inside and keep it that way. Yet, it'd be nice to continue the story and see where Stephenie takes us as readers to the same world and continue the adventure. After a month of knowing, I really want to read the sequel and reread the host so i know exactly whats going on. Give me a com...more
