second book in the Virals series
(shelfari) (amazon) (goodreads)
Ever since Tory Brennan and her friends rescued Cooper, a kidnapped wolf pup with a rare strain of canine parvovirus, they've turned from regular kids into a crime-solving pack. But now the very place that brought them together - the Loggerhead Island Research Institute - is out of funding and will have to shut down. That is, unless the Virals can figure out a way to save it.
So when Tory learns of an old Charleston legend about a famous she-pirate, Anne Bonney, whose fortune was never found, she can't believe her luck - buried treasure is exactly what she needs to save the Institute on Loggerhead! Trouble is, she and her friends aren't the only ones looking for it. And this time, the Virals' special powers may not be enough to dig them out of trouble . . .
The Viral's series is awesome and seizure is a great second. I think that its hard to start back up with the same series when you've tied a lot of the ends off, but i think Reiches did an excelent job! The mystery in Seizure was unique and incredable, and I have to give props to these mystery writers, some how they build up these seems that it seems they could never get out of, and in a series of strategic moves they solve every thing and it ends up all falling into place, awesome. The adventure was enthralling and the mystery was so twisty, always keeping me guessing. There was obviously lots of research and lots of effort put into the plot.
Tory was wonderful as always, stubborn but resourceful, and good at keeping her friends motivated. Shelton and Hi always make me laugh, and even brooding Ben made me smile. There was a little bit of romance goting on between Tory and Ben, Tory and Jason, and maybe even Tory and Chance? (lol, go tory! even if she is literally the only girl on the island :D )
I also like the supernatural aspects of Virals, How tory and her friends have enhanced abilities, It took a normal story and gave it a great edge, It reminds me of Max ride and is just super entertaining. I like watching tory and her friends figure out how to control things and is what really makes the book spectacular.
and of course the ending was great, and a book is ruined if it has a bad ending. It tied things up, but im sure that there will be more novels in the series. I love how each book has kind of a different story line, theres no cliff hanger endings, which is nice for a change. and I'll totally read the next ones.
