Virals by Kathy Reichs Book Review!

Virals - Brendan Reichs, Kathy Reichs

Today I'm gonna be reviewing Virals, which is the first book in the Virals series by Kathy Reichs, author of the Temperance Brennan books, and is co-written by Brendan Reichs.


The series is about Tory Brennan, great-niece to forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, and her best friends, Ben, Shelton, and Hi rescue a wolf-dog named Cooper from a lab and start to develop wolf like symptoms. And Tory, Ben Shelton, and Hi try to solve a forty-year-old cold case murder of a young girl.


Tory is a really awesome character. She's like a mix between Max from Maximum ride and Temperance Brennan. Tory is kind of a tom boy and is a people person, but when she comes across a set of bones then she's like her great-aunt Tempe, which is awesome because I'm a huge fan of the TV show, BONES.


I really love Ben, Shelton, and Hi! I love Tory's relationship with each of them. They are so funny! Hi is the Comic relief, I love him, he's so funny. Shelton is the smart tech geek, he's also kind of a scardy-cat, but I love him all the same. And I reallylove Ben. He's, like, the balance between Shelton and Hi, but, for the most part, he's kind of serious.  


Jason is a good character. I don't ship him with Tory, but he's a nice guy. I don't like Chance, I don't think I liked him once the whole time I read this book. I just didn't feel anything for him. [spoiler] Then when you reach the end and then I decided I didn't like Chance. I don't like Whitney, she's so annoying!


I love the part where they find the bones, like I said before, I watch the show so this was familiar to me, and the guys's reaction when Tory touches the bones is funny. I listened to this on autiobook and this part both very cool and very scary on audiobook. And the ending was so good! 


Also, did I detected a hint of romance between Ben and Tory near the end?  It's when Tory slapped Ben to get him to flare up. Either way I ship Ben and Tory!


That's all.
