Kathy Reichs and Brendan Reichs
YA Science Fiction/Mystery
When twin classmates are abducted from Bolton Prep, Tory and the Virals decide there’s no one better equipped than them to investigate. But the gang has other problems to face. Their powers are growing wilder, and becoming harder to control. Chance Claybourne is investigating the disastrous medical experiment that twisted their DNA. The bonds that unite them are weakening, threatening the future of the pack itself. The Virals must decipher the clues and track down a ruthless criminal before he strikes again, all while protecting their secret from prying eyes. And everyone seems to be watching.
I love this series! I love the TV series, Bones. I love this book. The friend group reminded me of mine. All my friends are guys and most of them are pretty smart (one we’re sure is a genius), so I connected with Tory right away.
I just really like the group and how close they are. Totally awesome. Cooper made the book perfect. I liked how this book changed up the settings some (love Loggerhead, but it was a nice change).
This book felt a little unlikely to me (I know the whole Virals thing is unlikely, but besides that 🙂 ). Seriously, how can these kids find so much trouble?!
I’ve always loved Tory in these books. I love how she’s so comfortable around guys and how she’s not afraid to knock them back into line (and she’s so dang smart!). Ben, Hi, Shelton are just wonderful and absolutely awesome (bonus: the latter two are geeky!) . Let me just say, if something happens to Cooper, the authors may want to watch their backs.
- This book isn’t too violent, but people use guns.
- A quick kissing scene and a few crushes, but nothing worse than that
- Swearing happens only about five or so times
- One character’s friends look suspiciously like drug users and someone points it out
