Brief Plot Summary: The book is about Earth after an apocalypse where parasitic aliens called ¨Souls¨ have taken over. When a Soul is placed in a human´s body, all of their qualities are erased except for their memories. Wanderer is a Soul and is placed inside the body of Melanie Stryder, although Melanie is one of the only people who isn´t completely brainwashed and wants to use Wanderer as a way to help her find her family.

Main Characters:

Wanderer- The ¨Soul" that is in Melanie´s body. She is scared of humans and it is difficult for her to lie to people.

Melanie Stryder- ´human rebel´ that was captured and implanted with a Soul (Wanderer).
