Wow! Just wow! This book grabbed me from the first page and didn't let go. The story is told in multiple POV. Lily dominates the story, but Carter and Mel both have some chapters along the way. While I gravitated toward Lily and her protective nature, always worrying more about her sister, Mel, than anything else, I really loved the chapters told by Mel. She's autistic and boy does the girl have an interesting mind. She really adds depth to the story.

Lily is only concerned about Mel and her own safety, which means getting off of the Farm before they turn 18. 18 is the age they are supposedly released, but Lily thinks it's really the age they are fed to the Ticks. So Lily devises a plan, but everything gets derailed when Carter, a sort-of-friend and major crush from the Before, shows up. He's not at all what he seems, but Lily must trust him in order to go through with her plan to escape.

Carter has lots of secrets and I won't spoil any of them for you, but let me tell you that nothing is as it seems in this story. McKay has tons of twists and keeps you guessing. And be ready to experience every emotion in the book. There were scenes that had me cringing and grossed out. Other scenes made me want to cry. And the tension is high just about all the time. You're in for a crazy good ride with this story. It's easily on my lists of favorite books this year.

A Refreshing New Take on Vamps

I'm in my late 40's and enjoyed this book. I really liked Mel and Lily. The charachter development is nicely done. I anxiously await the next book in the series - talk about a cliff hanging twist!!

    SAMPLE

    I only read the sample, and would like to say I did NOT enjoy having 90% of the pages be taken up by various title pictures, acknowledgements, and publisher information. A reading sample is meant to be a book excerpt that makes me want to buy the book, correct? It can not accomplish this task by filling up sample pages with all the aforementioned content. Disappointed in not having been able to accurately sample the book.
