"In a world where vampires rule and teenaged humans are quarantined as a food source, there is only one choice—resist or die. But fighting the vampires comes at a terrible cost to twin sisters Mel and Lily and their best friend Carter . . . With Lily exposed to the vampire virus and lying in a coma, it’s up to Mel and Carter to search for the cure. Time is not on their side. With every passing heartbeat, Mel is becoming more and more purely vampire. Desperate, Carter and Mel decide to split up. Carter will recruit human rebels from the Farm in San Angelo to infiltrate the guarded kingdom of the vampire Sabrina and steal the cure. Mel will go back to her mentor, her friend, her betrayer, Sebastian, who is the only one who can access an underground vault that may house the secret to the cure. That is, if he’s still alive after she staked him to the ground. Now her worst enemy may be their best hope for curing Lily—and saving the human race." (Summary from goodreads.com)
 

I really liked The Vault and I was so excited to jump back into this exciting and fascinating world after enjoying the first two books in this series so much. 

Mel and Carter are on the hunt for the cure for Lily before she turns into a Tick. They will do anything to get to the cure. Mel will even go to Sebastian. These characters have all come a long way since the first book and they still continue to keep growing and developing. I am a huge fan of the way that McKay alternates the chapters between the characters because she has given each one such a distinct voice. I especially continued to find Lily to be the most interesting character though, but I think that Carter really stepped into a larger role this time around too.  

I enjoyed how the search for the cure added this really interesting new aspect to the story. I also didn't find the plot to be predictable so there were some things that caught me by surprise. However, when compared to the other books in this series, I just felt that this one was paced slower. It took me a while to read and I just didn't feel like it held my attention the way the two previous books did. There was still a lot of action, but I felt like the story was dragging on, especially in the middle. 

Overall though I really liked The Vault. I definitely recommend picking up this series if you are looking for a different type of vampire story.
