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.
I loved the science in this book! Just amazing, and thoughtful, and I just loved it!
Tory was just a great character, very smart, very brave, and she worked through a few problems, and I loved her Virals gang! Hi was a very funny, Ben was really quite, and Shelton was Shelton. Just loved them, they were really close, and it was really great!
Tory is the daughter of Kit, whose mom is the sister of Tempe. And since I watch the TV show, I'm wondering how they might bring in a spin off show based on this book, because that would be really amazing. Because in Bones, Tempe has a brother, not a sister. But it could happen. He could've had a kid. And then they can bring in that kid's kid of Tory. Because I really want this to happen!
I loved the book, and Coop, and I just loved it all, so you guys better read this one if you haven't!
