This book was interesting and fast paced. ( )

I always find Kathy Reichs an enjoyable writer and this book is no exception. I do think however, that it was not needed to link this junior fiction series with her "Bones" series. The main character (Dr Temperance Brennan's Neice)could have easily been a convincing stand alone character. The constant reminders of that relationship get a bit predictable.
The story itself was good, mostly plausible, and reasonably fast paced, and after a middle section which dragged a bit, finished with a lots of action and the set up for an ongoing series.

Ms. Riechs, really wrote an intelligent YA novel. The characters are teens and take teen chances, being invincible and all that, weren't we all ? They are friends with all their flaws and drama involved in a normal life. The story takes place in South Carolina and it's islands. They live a life on the outside of the privileged, living in a remote area with their families.They follow a wolf dog pack on one of the research islands, and search when a pup disappears. This leads them to breaking into a lab to save the pup from terrible experiments, unlawful ones and the being of their new existence. This course of action will change everything for them and drags them into some horrible revelations.
This is a YA mystery/sci-fy book, there is no smut, no romance, it is just a really good story. The main character was 14 and was worried about real life issues not who her love interest was. I enjoyed it very much and it was a quick read. I am not a fan of her adult books too many details. ( )

More swearing than I feel is appropriate for a YA book. The story is good, but was a little hard to get into. ( )

Book description
Tory Brennan, niece of acclaimed forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan (of the Bones novels and hit TV show), is the leader of a ragtag band of teenage “sci-philes” who live on a secluded island off the coast of South Carolina. When the group rescues a dog caged for medical testing on a nearby island, they are exposed to an experimental strain of canine parvovirus that changes their lives forever.

As the friends discover their heightened senses and animal-quick reflexes, they must combine their scientific curiosity with their newfound physical gifts to solve a cold-case murder that has suddenly become very hot-if they can stay alive long enough to catch the killer’s scent.

Fortunately, they are now more than friends- they’re a pack. They are Virals.
