I’m looking forward to this second YA book from Kathy Reichs. The first book in this series, VIRALS, was an interesting take on the whole paranormal genre, using science to mutate the kids versus inherited powers. Though it took me a bit to really get into VIRALS, I enjoyed it and want to know what’s going to happen to Tory Brennan (yep, related to Temperance Brennan from the book and TV series) and her “pack”. Plus, it takes place just outside of Charleston, South Carolina, one of my very favorite cities.
SEIZURE comes out August 23, 2011 (yay–coming out soon!) from Razorbill. EDIT: Did I get the release date wrong? Amazon says the release date for this is October 2011. Boo! I’d like it this month, thank you.
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 . . .
So, what are you waiting on?
