Excerpt- The red and blue lights swirled in time with the siren's cry.

Before the souls had come to this place, these lights and sounds had only one meaning. The law, keepers of the peace, the punishers of the offenders.

Now, again, the flashing colors and angry noise had only one meaning. A very similar meaning.
Still the keepers of the peace. Still the punishers.


FL speak- okays, after a long time this is the first Book Review. Book Reviews tend to be very boring...atleast for i will be write about it the way i normally a crap way! The best thing about this book is that it has everything...from romance to action...Not Mills and Boon romance, but the type that we saw in Twilight which made the gals go crazy over the Cullens and made the lads acknowledge the fact that romance may not be so boring. (Though sparkly vampires is not my glass of beer)

And thus began the story of the HOST......featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies. And awesome book....a must read...if you trust my reading will make you want to finish the book in one go and yet would make you wish the story never ends. Stephenie Meyer.....i bow to you.

I would rate it 4 outta 5. Deducted a point not because of the plot...but because of the fact that there is no Alice Cullen here....i looooove

Great book, a great read....and dying for the sequel (if there is to be one) and the movie!

Price- 550 bucks in Chennai, Delhi from a particular press company, price may vary upon publication houses. In airports, its more costly...i made that mistake of getting it from there. The price mentioned is strictly for Paperbacks. Second hand...about 70-150 bucks.

P.S| Use the comments section to suggest a book you would want me to review before you actually read it. Am going book-hunting today and tommorrow. Until the next time, its FL signing off...

Next : the immensely popular, 'the girl with the Dragon Tattoo'
