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 EvaluationWhile 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.
