Additional Information

The Virals are put to the ultimate test when they find a geocache containing an ornate puzzle box. Shelton decodes the cipher inside, only to find more tantalizing clues left by "The Gamemaster." A second, greater geocache is within reach--if the Virals are up to the challenge.

But the hunt takes a dark turn when Tory locates the other box--a fake bomb, along with a sinister proposal from The Gamemaster. Now, the real game has begun: another bomb is out there--a real one--and the clock is ticking.

The action never stops in this science fiction thriller series. This time Tory and the other Virals find themselves in a race to solve the clues left by the Gamemaster before he unleashes a terrible tragedy. It begins innocently when Hi buys a metal detector and begins geocaching. The kids discover a hidden box Loggerhead Island that begins a treasure hunt with codes, clues from chemistry, and other clues to test their abilities. They need to keep the game secret or face serious consequences.

Meanwhile, Tory is still being dragged into becoming a debutante by her father's girlfriend Whitney. The current dilemma is choosing the boy to escort her when she is presented. She is torn between golden boy Jason and her friend Ben who is also one of the Virals. The two boys definitely do not get along and, in fact, have a couple of fistfights during this story. Tory is fourteen and has never really had a boyfriend. Despite being precocious and mature for her age, she isn't quite... Read more
I love reading about Kathy Reichs group of kids infected with a virus that gives them..well, hypersensitive powers that enables them to solve clues that lead to a variety of adventures. This novel is the third one chronologically timewise from when they are first infected and reflects their discoveries of new powers as they learn to control those powers and put them to use as a wolf pack. These novels are obviously geared for YA readers, but as a huge fan of The Goonies, I have always loved reading and/or watching movies (i.e., Super 8) where a group of kids varying in age teenwise get involved in solving mysteries to save the day. This one finds our protegies caught up in what at first seems just a game whereby they get clues via the internet and proceed to dig up a geocache containing an ornate puzzle box that has a cipher inside they must decode to further the game which very quickly becomes very dangerous as "The Gamemaster" ups the challenges. Like the kids in The... Read more
Don't get me wrong, I like Kathy Reichs, I think she's a great author. But I got this book when it came out and it took me a while to get through, mainly because I kept putting it down when it just got too unbelievable. The whole DNA/Paranormal thing with a twist of science I can buy, but four kids (and their dog), ages 14 to 16, taking on a mad bomber by themselves? It just seemed a bit far fetched. The other problem I've had with the Virals books is that these kids get into a lot of REAL trouble - criminal trespass and willful destruction of property come to mind in this one. After three adventures, Tory and company should have some pretty hefty juvenile delinquent rap sheets, but they always seem to manage to get a way with just a grounding. So the parent in me wonders if this is really the kind of stuff I want my teenagers reading as they just might get some unrealistic ideas about what they can and can't get away with. Still, the writing is crisp, Tory and bunch can be... Read more
