The first book of my new young adult series, Virals, releases on Tuesday, November 2, 2010!
Adventure has always been in fourteen-year-old Tory Brennan’s blood. After all, she is the niece of world-famous forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. So when she moves to middle of nowhere Morris Island, South Carolina, to live with a marine biologist dad she’s never known, Tory does the best she can to adjust to her new life.
There she meets a group of local kids who are just as “Sci-Phile” as she is—science geeks who’ve grown up exploring the backwoods marsh-lands of nearby Loggerhead Island. But there’s something strange going on at the Loggerhead Research Institute… maybe even something deadly. After rescuing a stray wolfdog pup from a top-secret lab, Tory and her friends are exposed to a rare strain of canine parvovirus, changing them—and their DNA—forever.
Now, with newly heightened senses and canine-quick reflexes, they’ll have to solve a cold-case murder that’s suddenly become very hot … that is, if they can stay alive long enough to catch the killer’s scent. Fortunately, they are now more than friends. They are a pack. They are VIRALS.
“If you like the TV show Bones (I do) or Maximum Ride, you’ll love Virals. Tory Brennan has ‘gifts,’ and she really knows how to use them.” – James Patterson.
“Mystery…fantasy…science…and heart-stopping action–this book is DANGEROUS. After I read Tory Brennan’s first adventure, I wanted more more MORE.” – R.L. Stine.
Visit: ViralsTheSeries.com. The Los Angeles Times describes Virals as “a thrill ride of a murder mystery that is likely to appeal to her adult fans as much as it will to kids.” Virals has also been chosen as a Best of the Month book selection by Amazon.com.
