Adventure is in Tory Brennan's blood. After all, she's the grandniece of world-famous forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. Always up for a challenge, Tory and her science-geek friends spend their time exploring the marshlands of Loggerhead Island, home to the very off-limits Loggerhead Island Research Institute, where something strange is going on. After rescuing a stray wolfdog pup from a top-secret lab, Tory and her friends are exposed to a rare strain of canine parvovirus, changing them--and their DNA--forever. Now they are more than friends. They are a pack. They are Virals. And they're dangerous to the core. But are they unstoppable enough to catch a cold-blooded murderer?

Kathy Reichs (www.kathyreichs.com), like her iconic character Dr. Temperance Brennan, is a board-certified forensic anthropologist, and creator of the Fox television hit "Bones," now in its eighth season. Reichs has written fourteen books in the Temperance Brennan series, all "New York Times "bestsellers. "Virals" is her first of three novel for young readers (www.viralstheseries.com). Brendan Reichs (www.brendanreichs.com) was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina. He graduated from Wake Forest University in 2000 and The George Washington University School of Law in 2006. After three long years working as a litigation attorney, he abandoned the trade to co-write the Virals series. He lives in Charlotte with his wife, Emily, daughter, Alice, and son, Henry. He plans to keep writing novels until they drag him from his desk.

Fans of James Patterson's Maximum Ride series will enjoy this one. The pace is quick throughout and the kids are smarter than most of the adults. The close friends quickly form their pack (reminiscent of the flock from Max Ride) once the going gets tough. They learn they have superpowers and want to figure out what's going on and who is trying to kill them.
The storyline never loses focus and never wastes time on things that aren't relevant to the point. I read the audio book, but it seems like reading the book would be great for reluctant readers as well. It moves on logically and it's easy to follow everything that is going on. I was entertained the entire time and will definitely read the follow-up's in this series.
