[Review] Virals by Kathy Reichs

This review was first posted on my Goodreads account on July 21, 2011. Now I am posting it on my blog with more details. :)

Synopsis via Goodreads: 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.

This book was one of the BEST book I have read in 2011. If you find crime solving tv shows too predictable, you will not at all find this too easy to solve! Brilliantly written. Jokes were constantly making me burst out laughing! The emotions of the characters literally transfer to you; for example, the anger of Tory made my blood boil, I just want it to twist up the evil characters until they break like a play-dough that had been strained.

Overall, this book is a MUST read!!!
