Series: Virals #.1
Review: Kathy Reichs author of 12 books and a series called Virals is a brilliant writer! I finished reading her book Virals and was blown away at the dense action, plot, and characters. The main character Tory Brennan is kick-butt. Throughout her adventures in Virals and into the sequel Seizure which I’m now reading, she pushes and pushes for what she wants. She DOES NOT let anyone or anything stand in her way. Throughout the book Tory Brennan and her friends Ben Blue, Hiram Stolowitski, and Shelton Devers. And of course Cooper the wolf dog.
I don’t appreciate the “pack’s” need to swear all the time. It really is unnecessary.
During the course of the book Tory Brennan and her friends commit a number of felonies but the very first one I believe involves this dog “Cooper”. Because of this they get very sick and catch a mutated virus that warps there DNA in till they are practically part wolf. Creepy, right? Well, it gets better. After all the symptoms pass they posses these superhuman abilities of a human/wolf. With these they stumble across a murder, which in turn leads them on this crazy chase, hunting down clues and being chased by murderers and other psychos. It has a good ending I will tell you that much. And I’m almost finished with the second book which I will also do a review of.
I really loved this book because other than several cuss words the book is clean, exciting, and grips you to the very end. In this fast paced book, you will have heart pounding moments, be excited, scared and intrigued. And you will totally fall in love with all or some of the characters. Except for the jerks, thugs, and murderers of course.
Final Grade: A+, I loved that action, and the plot, and everything! To me it was one of the best action novels for young adults I have ever read! LOVED!!!!!!!!!!!!
