On Monday, Mammoth released a never-before-seen introduction to Stephenie Meyer’s uber-popular novel The Host, written by — who else? — Meyer herself.

Celebuzz has your first look at the chilling three-page set up.

After the jump, read as Meyer paints the scene for her New York Times bestselling follow-up to The Twilight Saga, in which a young girl refuses to give up her mind after an unseen enemy invades her body.

The novel, released in 2010, is already being adapted into a movie, starring Oscar-nominated youngster Saoirse Ronan (Atonement) as the film’s protagonist, Melanie. Also featured in the Andrew Niccol-directed thriller: William Hurt (A History of Violence; Kiss of the Spiderwoman); and Diane Kruger, of Inglourious Basterds fame.

The film opens March 29, 2013.
