Revue de presse

"If you like the TV series Bones, then you'll love Virals." (James Patterson) --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Présentation de l'éditeur

When Tory Brennan's mother dies suddenly she is sent to live with the father she has never met on a remote island in South Carolina. Tory might find getting to know her dad difficult, but she has no trouble making friends with the island's other teenage inhabitants: Shelton, Hi and Ben. They quickly form their own gang, united against the snobby pupils of the high school they all attend.

Things change dramatically for them, though, when they rescue a sick wolf-dog puppy who they find locked in a secret cage in a research laboratory. The four nurse him through his illness in their bunker hideout, until he is better. But it's not long before they all fall sick. Could their illness have something to do with the puppy? And why is the head of the laboratory so interested in their health?

Sneaking back onto the island to try to find out what's going on the four are shocked to discover some long-buried human bones. But they are not the only ones wandering on the island that night, and when shots are fired the gang are forced to run for their lives. Suddenly Tory feels she could run all night. Shelton sees more sharply; Hi can smell odours he's never noticed before. And Ben's eyes have changed colour.

Alarmed by the change in each other, they retreat to their bunker. It's clear they have become involved in something fatally dangerous, and somehow they need to discover what is going on before somebody silences them for good. And if what they suspect is true, that somehow they have developed canine capabilities, then harnessing those powers could be the only way to save themselves.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Surprise 4 décembre 2011
Par livre
Format:Broché
Le livre m'a surpris car je ne m'attendais, en aucun cas à un livre, pour enfants ou jeunes ados ,au demeurant très bien . Je pense que ce commentaire serait très utile à de futurs acheteurs car si tout le monde connait l'auteur pour ses œuvres de médecin légiste il n'en est pas de même mais pour un livre du genre la bande des Quatres ou bibliothèque verte. Je ne voudrais pas que ce commentaire soit compris comme une critique mais plus comme un éclairage car de plus une suite est annoncée . Bonne lecture

Gold Star Award Winner!

Tory and her father live on an island reserved for the faculty who work at the remote research facility on a nearby island. She and her friends often explore the research island. One day, she convinces them to break into the facility to use their equipment in rejuvenating a dog tag ID they found in the woods.

While they have no problems cleaning the dog tags, they discover a missing wild puppy locked in a cage. Outraged, they immediately break Coop out and hide him in their secret cavern.

Tory and her friends take turns caring for the puppy while also trying to unravel the mystery surrounding the dog tags. They search the library, where they uncover clues to the identity of the man. Unfortunately, their search triggers a reaction. Someone doesn't want that information uncovered, and they'll do almost anything to keep Tory and her friends from learning and sharing the truth.

Coop is sick, sick with a strand of virus that infects Tory and her friends. Suddenly, they're having hot flashes, blacking out, and using bursts of adrenaline to execute inhuman feats. These feats occur in times of extreme danger - being followed, chased, shot at, or while breaking into secure buildings.

VIRALS is Kathy Reichs' first foray into the young adult world, and she knocks it out of the park. After a slow start, the tension, drama, danger, mystery, and the strange virus pulsing through the characters' bodies make this book extraordinarily hard to put down. I'm already waiting for the next book in the series.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Read 5 mai 2012
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I was a bit worried about this spin off by k.Reichs as it seemed to be aimed more at kids than adults, however after the first few chapters you really get into the book. It has all the great suspense, story and characters that you would expect to find in a Kathy Reichs book. Loved it and recommend it!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Good action if you're willing to dumb yourself down 9 juillet 2012
Par Tim Dawes - Publié sur Amazon.com
The story is a fun read. There's plenty of sleuthing and action. The major fault of the book is that you have to dumb yourself down to read it. Otherwise, you're always 2 or 3 steps ahead of the protagonist which is excruciating in a suspense novel. I found myself constantly saying, "Really, you don't get that? Then why are you making such risky choices if you don't get what's going on?"

Small spoilers below (reveals some of the early plot but not the juicy stuff)

As examples:

The kids make a rather shocking discovery on an island just as they are set on and shot at by an armed team clad in black. At the end of the encounter, the kids decide not to tell their parents about it until the morning (Are you kidding me!) because they say they are too tired to endure the grilling their parents will give them. I've never been shot at, but I can't imagine a group of teenagers tucking themselves in for a good night's sleep before they tell their parents. Then, when they do report the crime, they report it to an enforcement agency that they already believe are a joke (rather than going to the state police or the SLEC, the state version of the FBI). Finally, when they show the officers the scene of the crime they've uncovered, they're shocked to see that the evidence they found has been tampered with or stolen. This is just beyond belief. Did the kids really think that a group would drive them off with weapons and leave the scene intact until the next day?

The kids liberate (steal) a puppy infected with a highly contagious animal virus from a secure research facility. When the director of the facility sees them next, he refers only slightly obliquely to the theft implying that he knows they took the puppy. The main character recognizes the implications of his statements in an internal dialogue. The next day the director interrogates the kids, asking each one if they feel sick or "fluish"? And they're perplexed. Why would he think we were sick? Sure the virus is only supposed to attack dogs. But they're at a research facility and someone has already tried to drive them away at gun point. Can they not put two and two together? Apparently they can't, even though they're supposed to be so bright that they estrange themselves from other kids at their school.

The book is filled with these incongruities.

It feels as though you're mentally dragging the main characters along or waiting for them to catch up.

It makes it a very frustrating read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Virals by Kathy and Brendan Reichs 1 juin 2013
Par Constant Rearder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This is another book mistakenly listed as for Youthful readers. If one is into the Paranormal, adults will truly enjoy "Virals" the first in a new seres. The heroine, Tory Brennan, the grandniece of the Bones Serie star, Temperance Brennan, is 14 year old, has just lost her mother in an aut accident and has moved in with her father, a scientist living on one of the islands of the coast of South Carolina, and working in an animal reserve and research laboratory on another. She has three friends, boys from the age of 14 to 16 who are children of other employees on the same research laboratry island. The four of them are enrolled in a posh school on the mainland and are outcasts there.

Curios kids, they investigate one of the labs and find a puppy, a half wolf / half German Shepherd offspring of the wild wolf inhabitants of the island, hooked up to all sorts of wires an tubes--with his cage marked for his extermination. They grab the pup and run back to their own island home.

And each comes down with whatever has infected the pup, with varying degrees of illness. Tory's dad refuses to let her have a pet, so the four kids keep the pup in an old abandoned WWII defense bunker they've found on their island.

Tory's dad's employer, the doctor who's lab they stole the pup from, finds them and warns them that they might have unfortunate results from the illness they contracted from the dog--just as their bunker is attacked by unknown gun shooting men. The doctor sends the kids and pup through the escape tunnel, then collapses it so the kid can escape, but is killed in the aftermath.

The rest of the book is devoted to finding out who and why they were attacked, what has happened to them as result of catching the dog's virus, and learning what to do with themselves with these new powers.

Tory's life is complicated by a crush on the richest kid in school, and n Charlotte society, her dad's ditzy girlfriend who insists she prepare for her "comng out"--something the tom-boy Tory is not interested in at all, and the way the snobby kids in heir school treat these outsiders.

All in all a fun and interesting book to read--IF one is interested in anything paranormal.

Wasn't sure about this book when I started it - in fact I read the first chapter and then had to put it down for a while as it isn't her usual style, but once I started reading again I couldn't put it down - excellent read and very different from her usual books. I look forward to more of these characters in the future - please.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing start to a new YA series... 4 novembre 2010
Par Denise Crawford - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I was so excited about this release and had high hopes for a YA novel written by Kathy Reichs, the author of the Tempe Brennan forensic anthropology book series for adults but I was very disappointed in this first outing. My focus when buying YA is to please savvy and enthusiastic readers who are high school age teens. The age of the protagonist female (Tory) in this book at 14 really bothered me and I felt was written a bit too "young" for the activities she became engaged in with her cohort of boys from the local prep school they all attended and from the island where they all lived. She was a bit of a "know it all" just like her great aunt seems sometimes to be to me in all of the "Bones" books I've read! Although there were attempts made to educate the readers about the science, it seemed like it was lecture rather than true teen interaction and dialog. Is anyone but me tired of these supposed "brainiac" kids who all happen to be friends and form a little club of sorts to outsmart adults and/or outwit criminals?

The story was somewhat preposterous as she and the boys (so stereotypical as the nerd, the klutz and the quiet, strong type -- Shelton, Hi and Ben) do a lot of breaking and entering and engage in some unbelievable research, snooping, and sleuthing in terms of what their searches find. Of course the parents are absent and clueless about what their offspring are doing. Their fellow students at the high school are also cliche -- the "mean girls", the jock, and the really cute rich guy who flirts with our heroine even though he has a gorgeous girlfriend. I found the suspension of disbelief required to be just too much. Even with their new found powers (derived from what exactly? a supervirus?), the narrative defied my ability to be entertained and mostly irritated me.

The plot moved along at a good pace but the entire story, even though identified as fantasy with paranormal elements, was implausible and predictable. No surprises here. Others have suggested that this book is a sort of science-based Nancy Drew -- but I disagree -- Carolyn Keene wrote much more believable mystery stories with more finely nuanced characters.

Alas, it could have been a "smart" novel but it devolved into mediocrity and I'm sorry to say I won't be reading any more in what is sure to be a series. Perhaps OK for middle school but too "young" for secondary students or young adults.
