Lost treasure. Perilous adventures. Deadly foes.

Tory and her friends are just starting to get a handle on their super-heightened wolf-like capabilities--contracted during a medical experiment gone horribly wrong--when they find out funding is being pulled from the institute where their parents work. The pack now faces its greatest fear--separation. So when Tory stumbles across ancient lore hinting at a lost pirate treasure, the Virals devise a risky plan that pits them against fiendish traps, headless corpses, and deep underground tunnels. But they're not the only ones looking, and the competition could be lethal. They'll need to work as one mystery-solving canine force if they to hope to uncover the lost fortune, save the institute, and stick together!

This is a great sequel to virals. A very enjoyable read.

Compelling and fast-paced. The multiple turns were fascinating and the characters fun, but starting to get a tad flat. Still looking forward to the next book.

I had to put down the audio version and pick up the hard back because there's something I love about Reichs' style! Having followed the Temperance story from almost the beginning, I'm always curious how far fact and plausibility scale in the books and where the magic actually begins, but I love the feel of the story. The characters are fun and the story exciting!

It took a completely different direction from Virals, and if you're looking for pure entertainment, you'll probably enjoy Seizure. It doesn't require much thought and it's definitely unrealistic (how in the world did they sneak away from their parents so easily?) but it has a cool premise and builds off that. The characters are likable, but they don't really matter much because the plot steals the show. If you like treasure hunt or adventure stories, this book is good for you.

Great sequel, the thing I love about these books is when anything scientific is being explained ( like the parvovirus) it's said in a way that's easily understood. Seizure kept me hooked till the very last page!

I prefer this book to the first one, actually! Virals was good but I prefer the idea of a pirate treasure-hunt! I really like Tory's character and I love her pack. They all have such distinctive personalities. I love Anne Bonny, first of all, because she was something of a childhood hero to me, since she was a FEMALE pirate in a time where females weren't exactly what they are today. I loved the action in this book, and if there's one thing I want more in this book it's romance, but SIMPLY, because I'm just that kind of person. GREAT BOOK. A definite read. I cannot wait for the next one [Code]!

Very glad Kathy Reichs ventured into writing for teens. Looking forward to the third in the series

Great book, can't wait for the next one!

Wow. I'm very, very impressed. And all of the stuff is possible, albeit unlikely. Agreed, it had its low points with school drama, but it was still gripping to the end. Bones and Maximum Ride fans will not be disappointed. LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

In this great sequel Tory Brennan and her friends try to find long lost pirate treasure in hopes to pay to keep LIRI open. If they can find Anne Bonny's treasure they won't have to move away from each other. It's a great dangerous adventure with lot's of plot twists.

"I don't wanna!" Shelton whined. "You'll start talking, and pretty soon we'll all start nodding, and then the next thing you know, I'm hang gliding off the Eiffel Tower at midnight, being chased by ninja vampires. No deal!"
