Blog Tour: The Lair by Emily McKay

Welcome to the next stop on The Lair blog tour! I had the privilege of being sent a copy of this book from Penguin Group USA to review. My review can be seen below.

The Lair
Release Date: November 5th, 2013
The Sequel to The Farm by Emily McKay


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.
Once again Emily McKay has written a fantastic book! Reading about Mel's struggle with adjusting to becoming a Vampire was really intense and I especially love how her transition into a Vampire cured her Autism. She is such a strong individual both mentally and physically. Mel is probably my favorite character. When Carter, Lily, and McKenna finally get to Base Camp, it seems it is not as safe as they had hoped. Of course, we continue to watch the relationship grow between Carter and Lily and I really think that they are meant for each other. Unfortunately, Carter and Lily end up going in separate directions in order to survive. Lily is entrusted to get McKenna safely to Canada and help deliver her baby, though they do not make it there. It just about destroyed me when McKenna died after giving birth and bled out, but luckily her baby survived. When Carter goes to get Lily and McKenna's baby Josie, Lily accidentally gets infected with the Tick virus. It is so awful and I am still hoping she can be cured in time. Sebastian's lies and betrayal really angered and surprised me. In this book we meet many new characters and learn more details about the feud between Sebastian and Roberto. The book ended with a jaw dropping cliffhanger that put me on on the edge of my seat in shock. All in all this book was another fabulous read and I'm anxious to read the third book in this series.
