Gr 7 Up—The adventures of Tory Brennan and her friends—science geeks who have been infected with a virus that has given them wolflike abilities—come to a tenable end in this final "Virals" title. Competing with another band of high-powered teens for dominance of Charleston, the group also has to contend with a mysterious agency bent on exposing its secrets. A smart, fearless protagonist and a compelling plot will have fans hoping for more books about Tory and the gang.
Tory Brennan and her fellow Virals are targeted by the vicious Trinity, another "pack" of young adults with the same wolflike superpowers. Meanwhile, a shady government agency tracks both packs. This fifth entry is a little over-long, with much time spent on a predictable love triangle, but suspenseful action, surprising double-crosses, and some intriguing science make for an enjoyable mystery/sci-fi adventure.
