This was entertaining, but I didn t feel like it contributed much to the story of the series as a whole That s probably why I like the Temperance Brennan novellas better, because every novel is contained, so it feels like it contributes without having to the problems that always come with novellas people being able to avoid reading it etc Whereas the Virals series is muchconnected plotwise, so the novellas fall a bit flat I don t know how else to describe it, but I m glad I ve read it This was entertaining, but I didn t feel like it contributed much to the story of the series as a whole That s probably why I like the Temperance Brennan novellas better, because every novel is contained, so it feels like it contributes without having to the problems that always come with novellas people being able to avoid reading it etc Whereas the Virals series is muchconnected plotwise, so the novellas fall a bit flat I don t know how else to describe it, but I m glad I ve read it anyway A very cute and quaint telling of the pack s first meeting |Free Ebook ⚒ Shock ♭ Just in time for the release of the final book in the Virals quintet comes a riveting short story that takes us back to the beginningA dazed Tory Brennan steps off the plane in Charleston Reeling from the recent death of her mother, and nervous about meeting her dad for the first time, she could hardly be less excited at the prospect of starting this new chapter of her life With its balmy weather and relaxed Southern atmosphere, South Carolina feels like a foreign country compared to Tory s native New England But her worries begin to fade once she lays eyes on rugged, mysterious Morris Island, and three quirky boys who are as lively and curious as Tory herself Maybe just maybe this new home has something wonderful in store for her after allIn this glimpse into the world of the Virals before they became Virals, sometimes what seems like an ending is only the start So just to recap I have just finished Seizure and the next book in the series is Code, but i loaned both Virals and Seizure from Quill So now I have to borrow Code from my local library But because I m me, I decided oh I m actually going to read the prequel and short stories while reading the series so yea that s the tea sis, and that s also why i read Shock and now next in line, is Shift Yes, next time I will see you is when i have completed Shift, hopefully, you guys are enjoying your h So just to recap I have just finished Seizure and the next book in the series is Code, but i loaned both Virals and Seizure from Quill So now I have to borrow Code from my local library But because I m me, I decided oh I m actually going to read the prequel and short stories while reading the series so yea that s the tea sis, and that s also why i read Shock and now next in line, is Shift Yes, next time I will see you is when i have completed Shift, hopefully, you guys are enjoying your holiday break because I sure am.once again I really enjoyed something a little different from what I normally read, and I m super excited to read Shift next Thank you Kathy Reichs, for making Virals, Seizure and now Shock a great adventure that I could become apart of.Sincerely Nate In this pre qual to the Virals series, we get a peek into Tory s life before becoming a Viral With the fresh loss of her mother and her first in person meeting with Kit As she literally crashes the party and meets the boys on the beach when she is exploring her new home It also includes the bunker find, an important place in the books to come Since this book wasn t out the first 5 or so times I read the series you can read through without this one but it does give some emotional insight into In this pre qual to the Virals series, we get a peek into Tory s life before becoming a Viral With the fresh loss of her mother and her first in person meeting with Kit As she literally crashes the party and meets the boys on the beach when she is exploring her new home It also includes the bunker find, an important place in the books to come Since this book wasn t out the first 5 or so times I read the series you can read through without this one but it does give some emotional insight into the characters A brilliant short story that fills in the gaps from the start of the novel series, and explains how Tory came to live with Kit though not very in depth , their first meeting, how she met her crew and how they discovered the bunker I wish this was the beginning of the first novel, but better late than never.
