Series: Virals, #1
Author: Kathy Reichs
Sub-genre: Young Adult, Science fiction, Mystery
Reader's Annotation: Can Tory and her friends survive
Summary: Tory Brennan (Niece of the famous anthropologist Temperance Brennan from Reich's other books) lives with her father, whom she's now just getting to know. How will a mysterious dog tag change her and her friends' lives forever?
My Evaluation: While not as detailed in terms of Forensic Anthropology like Reichs' other books, Virals is an excellent read, especially for those YA readers who like mystery. It was a little slow to begin with but once the story got rolling, I didn't want to put it down. The only thing that bothered me is the whole "super-powers" thing... extremely far fetched and isn't really true.
Rating: 2.4 out of 5
