Seizure (Virals #2) by Kathy Reichs and Brendan Reichs

The kids seem to have recovered from their parvovirus exposure and are ready for a fun summer when they learn that Loggerhead Island Research Institute is set to close.  They are desperate to find a way to save their institute and keep their pack together.  They can't be separated just when they are learning how to deal with their new found abilities.

While attending a cotillion event, Tory learns of the legend of pirate Anne Bonney and her long lost treasure.  If only they could find the loot and use it to save the Institute.  What follows is a fast paced adventure that will challenge their bonds as friends as well as their controls of their canine talents.  I think this book is even better than the first in the series.

Authors Kathy Reichs and her son Brendan have created an exciting and possible tale.  After all, treasures do get found  even in the real world.  They have also added balance to the story by including some regular events outside of their pack activities such as Tory's social events for Cotillion and the inclusion of bad boy Chance, who I loved in the opening book of the series.  They have left a number of situations open for future books to resolve.

I listened to the unabridged audio book as read by Cristin Milioti.   10 hours 48 minutes.  Cristin does a great job of making the listeners believe that they are listening to a group of teens.  It's wonderful how she puts a whine in Hiram's voice and yet manages to add swagger to Chance.  The tale of the pack continues in the short story Shift and then in the novel Code
