Publisher's Summary

The second novel in the Virals trilogy from the number-one best-selling author and inspiration for the TV series Bones - Kathy Reichs!

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.

Definitely YA

Any additional comments?

I thoroughly enjoyed Virals. However, Seizure was not near as interesting. There was more find-the-pirate-treasure "adventure" with only bits and pieces of the core storyline--- the abilities of the Virals. This is another one of those series in which the author seems as interested in stretching out the series as she does in developing characters and moving the plot along. I have stopped and started this one several times while reading other novels in between. I want to finish it, but I'm struggling to stay interested.

Also, I am a high school English teacher, so I frequently preview YA books for my class. I was fascinated with Hunger Games and just as impressed with Divergent. I thought this series may be along those lines, but I can imagine readers losing interest halfway through this one.

This was my favorite book in the series.

What did you love best about Seizure?

I loved the history in it and the pirate aspect. This is probably why I liked it best out of all of the books.

Any additional comments?

I love this series and each character in the book takes on a life of its own thanks to the great narrator. I couldn't wait to start listening again when I was forced to turn it off. This book kept me enthralled from start to finish.

Much anticipated in audio. Very hard to locate in audio

Not only for teens

The Virals books are by the Bones author and are aimed at teens and young adults, of which I am neither, but, as with Harry Potter, I really enjoyed them anyway. Having enhanced capabilites seems to be a popular theme for stories these days, and I especially like the connection with wolves. Give it a try. I would suggest reading the first Virals book first, if you haven't already. I hope Reichs writes more of these.

story great, audible download not so...

Would you consider the audio edition of Seizure to be better than the print version?

I love the Virals series. Bought book 1 on CD. When Amazon didn't provide a cd option, I tried Audible. Something went funkie on disk 2 or 3 and it restarted at an earlier point. Tried tore-download and was told I had completed my max downloads. Contacted them through their website. No response. I've got the whole story (I think) but the stop and re-start at a different part of the story is annoying.

What did you like best about this story?

LOVED the whole story.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Narrator did great. I could tell what character was speaking even before the text identified her/him.

Any additional comments?

Only complaint is the no-mass produced CD option. As I said, I had a download problem and Audible did not respond to my query.

Like watching alpha posturing in the dog park

I'm not sure if this book get's better. It lost me in the second chapter when the teenage pack was busy explaining how special they were. Really lost me. Normally Rechs is a much better writer.
