Virals Book 2: Seizure by Kathy Reichs

Seizure by Kathy Reichs. Pub. Young Arrow, 2011. 

This is the type of novel that you read for shear fun and enjoyment. It is escapism at it’s best and it’s what reading is all about.

Tory Brennan and her friends Skelton, Hi, Ben and dog Coop have all been infected. They call themselves Virals. Their biological software has been invaded by a microscopic invader which gives them the traits and instincts of a wolf. In other words they have a virus.

The island on which they contracted this is off the coast of Charleston, an island owned by the University of Charleston which is short of money and is now up for sale. This threatens the livelihood of Tory and the rest of the Virals. They determine to try to stop the sale by raising money, but where will it come from?

They learn about the history of a woman pirate, who swung both ways, called Anne Bonney. Legend has it that she left buried treasure somewhere in the region, but where? Then they discover that they are not the only ones looking for the treasure. The race is on but will their newly acquired wolf traits be enough to give them a competitive advantage?

Very well told by a writer who has a fine knowledge of forensic science and research techniques.

High school students will love this. It is fast moving, bitchy, and written in short sharp chapters. Pure escapism.

Sequel to Virals already reviewed on this blog.
