An enjoyable change of audience & direction from Reichs,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Virals: (Virals 1) (Virals series) (Kindle Edition)
I have read several of Kathy Reichs' other books, and have always found her to be an interesting writer. I found them slightly heavy going sometimes so I decided to give 'Virals' a try as it was a different series.
Although Virals is aimed at a younger audience I found it very enjoyable. I don't quite understand why readers seem annoyed at it being for young adults, yes the story is less realistic than her other series, but I didn't find there was a lack of story line or anything particularly 'childish'.
Kathy Reichs has managed to write a different type of book with the same gripping story line as her previous novels, and I am really impressed. I purchased the kindle version (for full price of ~£8) and couldn't stop reading it. At one point I was slightly concerned she was going in the direction of the whole vampire and werewolf trend at the moment, but I assure you she is not. With her own unique twist it's a great read and if you are a Kathy Reich fan, give it a go! It is under a fiver now for the kindle version!
I give it 5/5, a great story, little less heavy and realistic than previous books but that didn't stop me from enjoying it thoroughly. Whether or not others agree, I loved it.
