There’s a bit online, and some decent books I could recommend, but so little is truly known about Bonny that most sources are repetitive, even contradictory. That’s been the problem. What exactly are you looking for? I have a school project, I lied

There’s a bit online, and some decent books I could recommend, but so little is truly known about Bonny that most sources are repetitive, even contradictory. What exactly are you looking for? I have a school project, I lied. We’re supposed to trace the background of a Lowcountry historical figure, and I figured Anne Bonny would be fun. Did you try the Karpeles Manuscript Library? It has genealogies dating back to the first settlers.

Positive: Pirates! Is there anything more exciting than digging for buried treasure? I love how Kathy Reichs incorporates both legend and fact into her story, then twists them so her Virals have treasure to chase.

Positive: Tory. She's obviously the Alpha of her pack, bossing those boys around and getting them to do what she wants. She has good intentions -- she doesn't want the pack to break up, especially since they're only just learning about their powers and they're afraid to be apart, just in case something major happens. Plus, she's got such a sarcastic wit and an amazing brain, just like her famous aunt.

Positive: The connection to Temperance Brennan (Bones). It's a little thing, I know, but I really love when there's a crossover whether it be between series or, in this case, genres. It's like you're in on a little secret, if you've read the author's other works.

Wish: That Tory didn't seem to be talking to the reader at time. I don't know what it is about that style but it jars me and, because of that, it takes a bit longer to slide into the flow of the story.

Overall: A fast-paced thriller, SEIZURE grips readers and pulls them along for a wild ride.

I read the whole series first and loved, them. Then I got my kids hooked on Virals by reading it aloud to them, and now they are tearing through the series on their own. I'd say it is best aimed at early teenage girls. But my boys (ages 8 and 10) are devouring the books. They love the supernatural part... what kid doesn't dream of suddenly getting super powers? I think my boys just ignore the boy-girl drama and still seem a bit bewildered by other aspects of teen angst (I had to explain to them them the concepts of debutantes and cotillion, and also what it means to be a scholarship kid at a hoity-toity private school.) I think Virals was the best book for the kids that age, with each subsequent book being slightly more mature and a little less interesting to them as the characters age and become less relatable to my pre-teens.

This second in the Virals series has the team - Tory, Ben, Shelton and Hi and Tory's wolf dog Cooper - facing a pretty big problem. They are just starting to understand the powers they acquired when given a virus that added canine DNA to their own DNA when bad news comes. The research center where most of their parents work is being closed and sold off.

The kids are determined to find a way to save the center so that they can stay together. Since the research center is on an island near Charleston, South Carolina, it doesn't take long for them to decide to search for pirate treasure. Anne Bonny is reputed to have buried some somewhere in the area. The kids aren't the only ones who want Anne Bonny's treasure and soon find themselves dealing with a number of enemies.

The kids use their various talents to track down the clues and use their Virals powers to get themselves out of a number of dangerous situations. This story was action-packed and should keep any middle grader on the edge of their seat. Along the way, they'll also learn quite a bit about Anne Bonny and the area around Charleston.

I liked that Tory was the alpha of her new pack despite being the youngest of the teens. I also liked that Tory had to juggle her dad's new girlfriend's plan to have Tory take part in Cotillion along with the more adventurous parts of the story. Even Virals have to deal with bullies!

This is the second of a five book series which also has four novellas. I look forward to reading lots more about Tory and her friends.

A book listed as for Youthful readers, this book and this series is one anyone, adult or teen, who enjoys the paranormal wil enjoy.

Tory and her three male friends, who live on a South Carolina coastal island with their parents who are workers on another island, a nature reserve and research laboratory headed by Troy's dad, are mutants. They were infected with an experimental artificial virus by their wolf-dog, Coop, and now their DNA contains animal components. They can, under certain circumstances, access special powers that are canine in aspect.

The four youngsters are upset when they find out that their parents are about to lose their jobs because the research lab is about to go bankrupt. Tory hears about an Ann Bonney treasure that has been lost since the pirate lurked in South Carolina waters in the 1800s, and decides to find it and save her father's job.

Complicating the search is an escaped mental patient, Tory's former crush, the richest youngster in South Carolina, and a married tourist guide couple also looking for the treasure.

Trapped in tunnels under Charlotte, the group is shot at, and suffers several other set-backs, including finding Bonney's lost treasure trunk empty, and Tory's dad's ditsy girlfriend's determination to turn Tory into a debutant.

A fun read for anyone (Adult or Youth) who likes treasure hunts, mysteries, debutant lore, or the paranormal.
