Welcome to another Poisoned Rationality Special Edition! Today we have exclusive content from author Emily McKay! Trust is a thing of the past in The Farm, but hey I'd never steer you wrong right? :whistles:
Life was different in the Before: before vampires began devouring humans in a swarm across America; before the surviving young people were rounded up and quarantined. These days, we know what those quarantines are—holding pens where human blood is turned into more food for the undead monsters, known as Ticks. Surrounded by electrical fences, most kids try to survive the Farms by turning on each other…
And when trust is a thing of the past, escape is nearly impossible.
Lily and her twin sister Mel have a plan. Though Mel can barely communicate, her autism helps her notice things no one else notices—like the portion of electrical fence that gets turned off every night. Getting across won’t be easy, but as Lily gathers what they need to escape, a familiar face appears out of nowhere, offering to help…
Carter was a schoolmate of Lily’s in the Before. Managing to evade capture until now, he has valuable knowledge of the outside world. But like everyone on the Farm, Carter has his own agenda, and he knows that behind the Ticks is an even more dangerous threat to the human race...
You list many famous historical figures as abductura in the book. Is the idea of abductura something that has been addressed before? Do you believe it could be true?
I don’t know if it has been addressed before and I don’t think there really are abductura’s but I think we all need to be aware of the power that other people have in our lives—and the power we have in other’s lives.
If you were on The Farm, what would you do? Would you be a breeder, or try and escape? Would you just try accept your fate?
I’ve never been very good at accepting my fate. I like to think I would be like Lily, determined to save those people who needed saving.
+++Remember by answering whether you'd accept your fate or not you have a chance to win a copy of The Farm and a Vampire survival Kit! Check out my Contest Post for all the details!
Me personally? I would try and accept my fate. Unless I had someone to fight for (like my sister), then all hell would break loose before I let them use her in any sort of fashion.
