45 starsStill missing the dose of romance I crave in my reads but The Lair
is ven better then the first book in all the wayseven better then the first book in all the ways matter the most Great character development and growth and the writing has such an incredible pull to it Ugh Just ugh Where I loved the first book in this series due to its portrayal of an autistic character this book read like a cliched teenaged angtsy relationshipIt felt like all Lily and Carter did was whine about their relationship How loving Adam Smith: An Enlightened Life each other put them both at risk How they couldn t act responsibly or logically if they were nearach other And yet neither wanted to be apart It was just all so overblownI was most disappointed in the developments of Mel s character Being turned into a vampire cured her autism and I found it almost offensive I was proud that when she looked back at her life with autism she was proud of it She liked her life then and obviously had doubts that being cured was a good thing Due to her outlook I didn t mind her just the changes that happened to herOverall I just couldn t get into this book It just felt full of all the YA cliches that I hate and left me with Crazy Love eye strain due to all theye rolling There were some rather spectacular cliffhangers at the Annual Editions: Technologies, Social Media, and Society end but I don t think I carenough to continue the series BLECH DAT COVER I want to say something nice but nothing is really coming to mind right now I want to like this this novel and somewhere in me a part Of Me Does However I me does However I can t help feeling a tinge of disappointment after finishing up this second installment in McKay s vampire series This novel picked up xactly where the first novel The Farm left off brownie point arned here for no tedious recap and persists with the same issuesthemes However while McKay obsessively focuses on CarterLily s romantic ntanglement she fails to laborate on the backbones of her story I would have loved to hear about the Abductura Black Heart, Red Ruby especially since the only skills that the reader is aware of is the ability of the Abductura to be able to bend others to their will out of sheer persuasion McKay also does throw genetics around her novels rather leisurely but doesn t trulylaborate on the science behind the regenerative gene or what make up comprises an Abductura This is where the novel is truly lacking The story would fare better with readers if McKay could firm up the details behind these two integral parts in her story The Lair is not necessarily poorly written on the contrary McKay is still delivering a fresh take on a vampiric post apocalyptic world I just wish certain areas of the novel were developed It is rare for me to say this but the rule of the movie seuel not being as great as the first applies here OHNOOOOOOOOOOOOONONONONOOOOOOOOOwhere s the publication date oh no can t be pleaaaaaseeedon t make me wait oh heck at least it s 2013 so i should be fine but waiting makes meeeee A 43 Review as posted on KindleObsessed blogStunned is defined as To stupefy as with the motional impact of an xperience astoundI use a lot of different words when writing reviews Stunned is not usually one of them But after finishing Emily McKay s The Lair it s the only word I can think of to accurately sum up my feelingsI Was StunnedIf you remember last December when I reviewed McK.

review ê Dreaming Me: An African-American Woman's Buddhist Journey eBook,PUB or Kindle PDF Ò Emily McKayAnie was turned into a vampire and had boring thought after boring thought There was a tick attack or two Some danger Teen angst A long pointless journey All the adults fucked off somewhere lse and happily abandoned their kids as they usually do in YA More teen angst Lily was the typical reckless boring YA heroine All her talk about being smart was bullshit she was a right thicko She was also a fucking annoying do goody idiot She felt overly guilty about going into other people
abandoned homes and taking their ven though she had no other choice Why would anyone feel guilty about that if it meant life or death She was in a fucking apocalypse there was no time to be all preachy and righteous about things like that I hate heroines who are all about morals and who don t think practically about the situation they re in Carter was the usual irritating bossy dull hero I ve still not forgiven him for telling Lily in the first book that the only reason he could have possibly fallen for her was because she compelled him using her abductrae or whatever the hell it was called powers How arrogant and rude of him Why on arth would Lily want to be with him after he said that to her The funny thing though was that he turned out to have those powers himself and he didn t once consider that he might have influenced Lily s feelings for him what a cocky prat Melanie was uninteresting I preferred her character when she was autistic Her changing into a vampire turned her into another run of the mill boring speshul snowflake heroine Jonathan LilyMelanie s dad was a wimpy douche He abandoned his daughters and didn t bother looking for them when the vampiresticks took over instead he just hoped they d be okay What kind of parent doesn t make sure their children are safe And then when he was reunitedS ABANDONED HOMES AND TAKING THEIR

Ay s Farm I pretty much lost my shit As louent as that sounds I was head over heels in love with that book not only for its originality which is still rampant in The Lair but because of the character choices McKay chose to What If explore mentally speaking and the overall sadistic action that spread like wildfire through out its plot But the booknded with some fairly serious issues up in the air and while I was anxious to read its seuel I was also petrified I d pummel it with lofty The Exhaustion Breakthrough expectations that could never be met So I waited literally until the very last moment I could get away with reading this book And twenty pages in I was overwhelmed with regret Not because my suspicions had been confirmed I am often proven wrong than I am proven right but because I should have had faith in an author I KNOW has the ability to create a truly STUNNING and jaw dropping story The Lair picks upxactly where The Farm left off Lives dramatically changed people missing others dead and a hunt for safety on the top of a very long list of wants and needs And much like
