Review: Seizure by Kathy Reichs & Brendan Reichs

Title: Seizure (Virals #2)
Authors: Kathy Reichs and Brendan Reichs
Pages: 512
ISBN: 9781595144867
Genre: Young Adult
First Published: January 2011

Ever since Tory Brennan and her friends rescued Cooper, a kidnapped wolf pup with a rare strain of canine parvovirus, they've turned from regular kids into a crime-solving pack! But now the very place that brought them together - the Loggerhead Island Research Institute - is out of funding and will have to shut down. That is, unless the Virals can figure out a way to save it!

So when Tory learns of an old Charleston legend about a famous she-pirate, Anne Bonney, whose fortune was never found, she can't believe her luck - buried treasure is exactly what she needs to save the Institute on Loggerhead! Trouble is, she and her friends aren't the only ones looking for it. And this time, the Virals' special powers may not be enough to dig them out of trouble..

If I'm being completely honest, I have to say that I wasn't pulled into the book immediately. Maybe that's because it has been a while since I read the first book. But eventually the story got so good that I couldn't stop reading anymore. What's so great about this book, (and if I remember correctly, the first book had it too) is that almost every chapter ends with a cliffhanger. My compliments to the writers for that, because normally I always want to finish the chapter before I stop reading but now I just had to keep reading. I don't think anybody can stop reading after those cliffhangers.

The thing I still find a little unbelievable is Tory's age. I just can't wrap my brain around the fact that she's supposed to be only fourteen. But despite that fact, I was kind of hoping for a little bit of romance. Maybe in the next book? We have Ben, Jason and Chance so there enough guys for Tory to choose from. 

Seizure is getting 4,5 stars from me. I recommend this series to all of you YA lovers out there. It has mystery, adventure, action, humor and sci-fi, which is a great combination, believe me!
