Book 1, Virals - A Virals Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Adventure is in Tory Brennan's blood. After all, she’s the grandniece of world-famous forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. Always up for a challenge, Tory and her science-geek friends spend their time exploring the marshlands of Loggerhead Island, home to the very off-limits Loggerhead Island Research Institute, where something strange is going on. After rescuing a stray wolfdog pup from a top-secret lab, Tory and her friends are exposed to a rare strain of canine parvovirus, changing them--and their DNA--forever. Now they are more than friends. They are a pack. They are Virals. And they're dangerous to the core. But are they unstoppable enough to catch a cold-blooded murderer?

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 18, 2010 – Reichs makes a solid YA debut with this spinoff of her Bones series, following 14-year-old Tory Brennan niece of famed forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan and her friends as they uncover a decades-old murder and a contemporary scientific conspiracy. Along with friends Hi, Shelton, and Ben, Tory who lives largely unsupervised with her newfound father on an island off the coast of Charleston, S.C. discovers a secret laboratory and rescues a dog. When an experimental parvovirus from the canine transfers to the teenagers, they are imbued with superhuman physical and mental powers and become the target of a group of killers. This intertwines with the story of a long-buried body, as well as teen drama surrounding the local debutante scene, into which Tory has been unwillingly thrust. Reichs juggles the large cast and layered story well, although the revelations at the end get a little silly. Still, the action en route is exciting, and the forensic science and research is as vital as in Reichs's adult novels, even in the more science-fictional setting. Ages 12 up.

Customer Reviews

I'll be reading the rest....!!!/;D

This is a great book.
I only have two problems.
The first one?
The reading format.
The way it's written.
It bugs the crud out of me.
And it's just like this.
How I'm writing now.
Right now.
But, it does pick up, and you do actually get full sentences and paragraphs eventually!!
But not for long.
Secondly, the cussing just wasn't necessary, and I'm already bombarded from every direction in the real world, so, that just bugged me. 😕
Overall though, this is a good book with great, intriguing descriptions (I want to explore Loggerhead Isle for myself!;) and an intriguing plot. I'm actually not finished with the book yet, but I can't wait to read on and I will definitely be reading the others! 👍
Ps- I read the physical paper back version. 😘


This book was one of the best books I've ever read. read it in one day !!! :-)
