Extract published on January 16, 2013.
The Farm is 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.
