In anticipation of the fourth book, Exposure, which comes out in March, the first three books in the Virals series (Virals, Seizure, and Code) are available as shiny, shiny paperbacks! If you can’t get enough of the Virals pack, check out the e-specials, Shift and especially Swipe, which comes out December 16! Swipe takes the Virals to Comic-Con (something you know we love) on an invite from Tory Brennan’s famous Aunt Temperance (you might know her better as Bones, from, you know, Bones).
Tory Brennan, niece of acclaimed forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan (of the Bones novels and hit TV show), is the leader of a ragtag band of teenage “sci-philes” who live on a secluded island off the coast of South Carolina. When the group rescues a dog caged for medical testing on a nearby island, they are exposed to an experimental strain of canine parvovirus that changes their lives forever.
As the friends discover their heightened senses and animal-quick reflexes, they must combine their scientific curiosity with their newfound physical gifts to solve a cold-case murder that has suddenly become very hot if they can stay alive long enough to catch the killer’s scent. Fortunately, they are now more than friends. They’re a pack. They are Virals.
