This is a powerful, unique and compelling novel about twin sisters and their fight for survival in a world on the brink of chaos, "The Farm" by Emily McKay is as addictive as "The Hunger Games" and "The Passage".
For Lily and her twin sister Mel there is only the Farm...It's a prison, a blood bank, a death camp - where fear and paranoia rule.
But it's also home, of sorts. Because beyond the electric fence awaits a fate much, much worse.
But Lily has a plan. She and Mel are going to escape - into the ravaged land outside, a place of freedom and chaos and horrors.
Except Lily hasn't reckoned on two things: first, her sister's ability to control the horrors; and, secondly, on those out there who desperately want to find and control Mel.
Mel's growing power might save the world, or utterly end it.
But only Lily can protect Mel from what is to come..."The Farm" takes you into a terrifying future where civilization has ended, and leaves you there - fearful, gasping and begging to escape. "Equal parts "Resident Evil" and "Hunger Games" - and just as thrilling "The Farm" is a gripping dystopian tale that pits humans against humans in the race for survival in her remarkable and haunting world.
I can't wait to sink my teeth into the next installment!" (Chloe Neill).
