In the wake of the vampire conquest of the world, young people have been quarantined on farms and harvested for their blood. Twin sisters Lily and Mel escape but are separated when Mel is turned by a vampire. Lily joins a resistance movement based in Utah, while Mel, no longer autistic owing to her vampiric nature, learns to control her blood hunger and to craft a new set of morals for herself. When Lily goes on another rescue mission and is betrayed, Mel decides to save her sister, despite her imperfect control. VERDICT McKay's dark fast-paced sequel to The Farm will appeal to both adult and YA fans of dystopian and vampire fiction such as E.E. Knight's "Vampire Earth" series. The sisters and their friends are well-developed characters caught up in situations that demand extreme measures to survive.
