Don't expect any typical crime solving Brennan and allow yourself to embrace her creativity in another genre. This is her third venture into the Viral series, a YA sci-fi story with Brennan's great niece as the main character.
The target audience is pre-teen upwards and is obviously an attempt to win over the new generation of readers. I think it will do that quite successfully and if those readers end up reading her more adult books later on in life because they enjoyed her writing then mission accomplished.
Tory is very intelligent, dominant and brash. Very much like her mother I would say. The team of virally altered hybrid shifters is confronted with a villain playing a cat and mouse game. In a very Famous Five meets shifter a la Nancy Drew type of mystery solving plot with a load of science and fast paced storyline, this is bound to entertain younger readers.
I received a free copy of this book via NetGalley.

Really Amazing Series
When I say that this series is for everyone, I mean just that. My mom, my boyfriend, and I all have read and enjoyed this series thus far. By the time you've gotten this far into the series, you understand the gist of the plot, so I'll spare you spoilers. My main complaint, however, and I'm not the only one, is that the main character is extremely socially inept. As a general rule of thumb, once I've figured out the emotions and motivations of a chracter, all of the characters have as well. Not so in this book, as (again, if you have read this far, there are no spoilers, if you have not, I suggest you not read this further) Tory has two boys nearly killing each other over her and she READ ONE OF THEIR MINDS and yet she still does not see why. Other than that, the book is amazing. I enjoy the Bones TV show and can definitely see some similarities, but the two are quite obviously separate, distinct entities with very different characters. All in all, I recommend this book to literally everyone who asks me what I'm reading.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
