I'm a fan of Kathy's Tempe Brennan books, including the Virals series featuring Tempe's great-niece Tory. This novella is Virals book 2.5, which is handy as I've not long read book 2 in the series, although each of Kathy's books can be read as a stand alone too.
Even though Virals is classed as a Young Adults series, I sometimes enjoy an easier read, so have read quite a few YA books.
This novella contained everything a great Virals book needs - intrigue, crime, mystery and the 4 members of the Virals team. A crime has occurred on Loggerhead Island and the Virals use their collective powers to solve it without being discovered. Of course, Tempe is hot on their heels.
I really like the fact that Tempe, the main character in Kathy's adult 'Bones' series of books, pops up here.
Good plot, endearing characters and a captivating setting. Ms Reichs does it again!

The virals investigate a theft on Loggerhead island, where their parents work. This involves getting into the laboratory where the theft occurred. The story is a bit thin when they so easily get past the security to get to the crime scene and no one seems to notice any signs that they were there. Tory's aunt Temp Brennan, the forensic anthropologist, is also there and picks up on something, but should we believe that they can do everything they did without leaving any traces and in the time available. That said, it was an interesting, if short, read.

A great short story from Reichs to tide us over until the new Virals novel arrives. I really liked seeing from the other characters perspectives as you usually just see from Tory's POV. Tempe's appearance was also a bonus.

Good to get the storytelling from the other 'Pack' members. Gave an insight to how they as individuals, were coping and their interpretation of what has happened to them. Focused their situation, and helped to understand what it means to them. A humorous read with good banter between the Pack. Dying to know how KR will develop the situation between Ben and Tory - hope it's good! The whole Virals concept is brilliant, let's have the next one.

I enjoyed this,short story although I felt the crime was solved a little too quickly. This story is well written and is a further installment in the virals series. The story can be read as a stand alone story although I would recommend reading the entire series.

An exciting part of the Virals series that is full of adventure. Its exciting with a good story-line. A modern day version of the Famous Five, other than the fact that the Famous Five don't change into wolves! Well almost? The stories are always intriguing and different each time. I imagine adventurous teens of today would get a kick out of these books as you can lose yourself in them and imagine your one of them. Great fun if you have an over-active imagination like some adults!

Just love these 'Viral' stories. Ok, I'm a keen fan of the Tempe books already, but as a Teenager in my sixties, these stories have a freshness & zingy dialogue I love. This one not long enough, but then no story you enjoy ever is! A nice link between the 2 series tho'. Clever Aunt Tempe. But, Sorry I can't STAND the 'Bones ' stuff on TV.

I loved this novella featuring the Virals. Tory meets her Aunt Tempe for the first time. When a break-in is discovered at LIRI, Tory enlists the help of the other Virals in solving it, in the hopes of impressing her aunt. Brilliant!
