The Host Chapter 10 Summary

How It All Goes Down


  • Before trekking out into the desert, Wanderer goes into a soul-run convenience store and stocks up on water and snacks.
  • She looks at a map (what, aliens don't have GPS?) and with Melanie's help, plots out a route to where Jared's hideout should be.
  • Wanderer drives into the desert until nighttime. Afraid headlights would draw too much attention, Melanie convinces her to stop for the night.
  • Before she goes to sleep, Wanderer worries that she's betraying her race by helping her host body.
  • Yeah, "betrayal" sounds about right.
