HEART-STOPPING FORENSIC ACTION WITH A LETHAL TWIST

The Virals' home on Loggerhead Island is under threat, and only one thing can save it: a lot of money.

A 300-year-old legend

Rumour has it that notorious pirate Anne Bonny hid her treasure somewhere in Charleston in 1720. No-one knows where, but Tory Brennan - great-niece of famous forensic anthropologist Dr Tempe Brennan - is certain that the Virals can work out Bonny's cryptic clues.

A deadly path

It isn't long before the Virals are on the right track. But they aren't the only ones searching for the treasure.Someone is following them, and will stop at nothing to get their hands on it.

Dead bodies litter the trail. Time is running out before the island will be sold.

Will the Virals' special powers be enough to save them?

Sequel to Virals.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 6-10-This sequel easily lives up to the promise of Virals (Penguin, 2010). When exposure to an experimental parvovirus led to enhanced senses and strengths, Tory and her friends were both frightened and exhilarated by their newfound abilities. As this novel opens, their powers seem to have stabilized and their lives have returned to relative normalcy. But financial woes threaten the closure of Loggerhead Island Research Institute where most of their families work. As their parents begin making plans to move elsewhere in search of employment, the four teens realize that they may be separated for good. When they stumble across a lead to the long-lost treasure of pirate Anne Bonny, they devise a daring plan to save the foundation and stay together intact. With its meld of science, intrigue, high-tech sleuthing, treasure hunting, and daring midnight adventures, this novel is hard to put down. The complete cluelessness of the adults may annoy some older readers but teens will be amused and pleased to know that what they've always suspected is, in fact, true.-Jane Henriksen Baird, Anchorage Public Library, AK (c) Copyright 2012.

Booklist Review

Tory Brennan and her viral friends, who contracted heightened, wolflike senses during an experiment gone wrong (Virals, 2010), attempt to find a female pirate's buried treasure in this second outing. The quartet is motivated to seek the booty when budget cuts threaten their parents' university jobs in Charleston, South Carolina. Afraid their pack will be split apart, they steal maps, explore hidden booby-trapped caverns beneath the city, and decrypt codes leading to a spooky, uninhabited barrier island, even as they are pursued by nefarious fellow treasure seekers. The action is nonstop and will keep readers glued to this satisfying mystery.--Cruze, Karen Copyright 2010 Booklist

Kirkus Book Review

Virals, 2010). The teens have been exposed to an experimental virus that altered their DNA, giving them characteristics comparable to wolves, enhancing their natural senses and creating a human pack. Hardly has this novel started when her father, Kit, drops a bomb. Due to the economy, funding has been pulled on his research project, necessitating a change of job and a move away from South Carolina and her pack mates--but not before she debuts into Charleston society, at her father's girlfriend's insistence. Determined to stay together, Tory, Ben, Hi and Shelton band together to search for the long-lost treasure of America's most famous female pirate, Anne Bonny. It's not long before things go awry, and they learn that they aren't the only ones on the hunt. They're going to need all their abilities just to survive. Dodging bullets, slipping out after curfew, following obscure clues into underground tunnels, not to mention Cotillion duties and snarky classmates, are just part of the adventure. Will this be their last? Reichs taps into the angst of teens, fear of separation and the uncertainty of today's economy and wraps it all in an entertaining yarn of history, pirates and modern technology. These characters are keepers. (Thriller. 12 up) ]] Copyright Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.
