Shift: A Virals Adventure by Kathy Reichs, Brendan Reichs

Tory's great aunt, Temperance Brennan, visits just in time to investigate a robbery at the Loggerhead Island Research Institute. As a renowned forensic anthropologist, Tempe is obviously qualified to figure out whodunit, but Tory and her Virals pack want to crack the case on their own. Yet the crime is puzzling. Who could have accessed the labs at LIRI, and how could they have gotten the equipment off the island?

It's Brennan vs. Brennan in this short story that gives readers a brand new insight into the world of the Virals.

I love the series, but although there are some plot ties to bones, it isnt actually bones, which might come as an fyi to an earlier reviewer who obviously is not too familiar with the plot line. The books are AMAZING and do mention temprence brennan as a character, but that does not make the books bones, just an accompanying series.

Wow this was a shift in Kathy Reichs writing. It was a nice change to read this ebook. It was different from Temperance Brennan but still a good story line. Like she is branching out a little. Not sure if it was a full length book if I would have been kept in focus, but for a short it was good. Guess I'm still a die-hard Bones fan :)

I first fell in love with the Brennen series a long time ago. Amazing writing and so much better then the show Bones. When Kathy and her son came out with the first Virals book I check it out for the heck of it. Amazing!!!! Just when I thought it might not be at good then the other series it blew me away. And they blend the two perfectly in the Shift book. Now I still read the Brennen series but now I also read the Virals series to my son who is five weeks away from being born. Hope to share my love of reading to him and I think this series is perfect for him. Thanks Kathy and Brendan Reichs. Keep on writing and I will keep on reading.

A great addition to the virals seires. I liked how they gave different POVs from every character. Can't wait for exposure to come out in spring.

This was a fun short story. The pack got together and solved another case. Not the most exciting thing I've read, but if you're looking for something quick and fun to read between Virals books, read Shift.

I absolutely loved what I have read of the books! It is more like the Maximum Overdrive series by James Patterson, if you are familiar with it. I cannot wait to start book 3, then the 4th book. A movie should be made of this series; it could be as popular as the Twilight Series!
