It’s difficult to categorize this 2nd book in the Virals arc. It continues the story from the first book. Warning! spoilers ahead if you haven’t read the first book which I would recommend you do before reading this one. That said, it continues the story of the teens and their enhanced “flare” which gives them canine senses, much better hearing, smell, and vision, stronger, faster, etc. Each one of the four teens has a sense that is stronger than the others and Tori, our heroine, can at times, though she has little control, connect her mind on some basic level with the others. The book follows them as they hunt for the legendary treasure of Anne Bonny in an attempt to forestall something bad happening that might split them up. All of them the need to be together – being a pack, as well as being the only ones like this. They want to discover more about what happened to them, and learn to control it better – flaring at will, etc. It’s a fun book, and a lighter side of Reichs. It’s a fast paced adventure with plenty of others interested in their search as well. But under it all is the bond between the friends. Good solid read.
