In the battle against the vampiric Ticks, humanity was slowly but certainly headed for extinction. For months, twin sisters Lily and Mel had been "quarantined” with thousands of other young people being harvested for their blood—food for the Ticks. Finally escaping with a few friends, the twins are separated—and must continue the fight on their own . . .

After making it to a resistance base camp in Utah, Lily learned to survive at all costs. But when a Tick attack decimates the fighters, Lily and her pregnant friend, McKenna, decide to make the hard trek north to Canada—and safety.

Meanwhile, Mel is being taught how to survive by the very vampire that turned her. Living without her sister is hard, but dealing with the fact that her autism was cured by the vampire bite is an even bigger challenge.

But when a monstrous betrayal places Lily in mortal danger, Mel must set out to find her, save her, and begin to unravel the empire of destruction that the Ticks have built.

 

The Lair, which is the sequel to The Farm, Emily McKay takes us on such an intense ride. The suspense is pretty non-stop in this one. They’re definitely never safe, so that cause me to bite my nails a lot while reading.

Lily and Carter bring on the emotions this one. They don’t know how to exactly fit in their roles and still protect one another. It’s a challenge for them, for sure! And it made me sad for them. Meanwhile, Mel, in the hands of Sebastian, is learning all kinds of new things. She isn’t the happiest of characters at first, but she definitely grew so much through the course of the book. By the end, she’s probably the most kick-ass of all. Sebastian, who really intrigued me in The Farm, totally surprised me in this one. I hope everyone is wrong about him because I’m still going to believe the best.

I like how Emily McKay keeps the action going in The Lair. There’s never a lull. It’s truly a page-turner. I should know, since I read it non-stop in one night! I definitely liked The Lair even more than The Farm, and I’m hoping the next one is even better. Can’t wait!
