The Host Chapter 7 Summary

How It All Goes Down


  • This chapter begins with Wanderer telling a bunch of students about her experiences on other worlds, like the fascinating and frightening Fire World. We can't do her story justice, so you'll just have to read it yourself.
  • After Wanderer's lecture, the Seeker pulls her aside to tell her that one day Melanie will take over if she's not careful. The Seeker has been given clearance to be implanted into Melanie and to scour her thoughts on her own.
  • Wander says she wants to talk to her Healer before deciding anything. She decides to drive to Chicago and see what Fords Deep Waters has to say about this.
