Code: A Virals Novel, Book 3 | [Kathy Reichs, Brendan Reichs]

Code: A Virals Novel, Book 3

The Virals are put to the ultimate test when they find a geocache containing an ornate puzzle box. Shelton decodes the cipher inside, only to find more tantalizing clues left by "The Gamemaster". A second, greater geocache is within reach - if the Virals are up to the challenge. But the hunt takes a dark turn when Tory locates the other box - a fake bomb, along with a sinister proposal from The Gamemaster. Now, the real game has begun: another bomb is out there - a real one - and the clock is ticking.

    "Beathtakingly fast, stunningly crafted"

    Code, the 3rd book in the Virals series, did not disappoint as a story or as a continuation. By itself, Code is a whirlwind thriller full of science, deduction, betrayal, danger, and frighteningly real characters. As a continuation, Code fed just enough new information into the ongoing mystery of the Virals' existence to keep me interested without leaving me hanging (much).
    What I liked the best about the Virals series is that Kathy Reichs (and now helped by Brendan Reichs) is not afraid to take risks with the main characters. They are mercilessly put through trials by fire, trials by emotional ruin, and trials of conscience, and each time, they rise to the occasion and deliver amazingly.
    My favorite part of Code itself...? The Gamemaker. Without revealing too many spoilers, the Gamemaker was fascinatingly cunning, ruthlessly determined, and psychologically terrifying. He wasn't your typical YA villain who pushes the young protagonists into a dark closet, leaving them plenty of time to escape. Not at all. He was evil and dark and hunted his prey like a wolf hunts a rabbit.
    I also really enjoyed getting to see the Virals all growing up a little. That must be a very hard trick to pull, because very few authors do it well, if they do it at all. But the authors of Code did it very well, blending newfound maturity with expanded responsibility and newfound feelings that are very real and well-known to anyone who's ever been a teenager.
    The return of narrator Cristin Milioti also makes me very happy. She reads the voice of Tory perfectly, and I love the well-planned special effect that are thrown in at just the right moment.
    5/5 would listen again.

    "Good Performance; story premise didn't fly with me"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I love Kathy Reichs books. The premise of this story didn't seem realistic to me, but the story itself was very good. If I suspended belief in the fundamental story, the rest was great - a real page turner.
