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.
Let me start off my review by asking: WHY are more people not reading these books?! I was highly, highly impressed and in love with The Farm when I read it last year. It was scary and disturbing and intense and romantic and EVERYTHING I love about a good dystopian/paranormal book. The Lair was all of these things and more.

One of the main reasons I was so excited for this book was to read Mel and Lily separated. That sounds SO horrible, I know, but Lily spends pretty much the entire time in The Farm worrying about Mel and trying to keep her safe. I wanted to get inside her head when she wasn't brainstorming bad, desperate ideas to save the day. Away from each other, Mel and Lily really shine. But whereas Lily was my favorite in the first book, I have to say that Mel was my favorite in this one. It was such a transition with Mel going from her riddles to clear, coherent thoughts but it was handled SO well. I could sense her getting stronger and stronger with every chapter that she was with Sebastian.

Speaking of Sebastian ... having a bit of mixed feelings for him. I have a feeling there's more to him, a better kind of more, that hasn't been revealed yet. I hope that's something we get in the third book and I'm crossing my fingers he does SOMETHING to redeem himself because right now ... tsk, tsk.

Overall The Lair is just as great as The Farm, maybe even more. The story has become so intense and I've become so wrapped up in these characters that I just want to throw my arms around them and pull them into this world so they'll be safe from the Ticks. *sigh* If you're looking for a gripping, action-packed, scary and romantic dystopian - these books are definitely the right choice. I highly recommend!
