Terminal – Book Review

Title: Terminal

Author: Kathy Reichs

Length: 402 pages

Release Date: 26 March 2015

Description: Tory Brennan and her pack have a new member – Chance Claybourne, but he’s different, he infected himself with a different version of the virus and now he’s stronger and better than them, and his eyes glow red and not gold.

But Chance didn’t only infect himself he infected his ex-lab tech Will Speckman. And now there’s another pack sharing the same land and The Trinity want Tory and her friends gone, for good.

But there’s one more thing to worry about Covert government agents and hunting them all down, wanting to lock them up and test all their powers, get into the mind of a Viral.

Can Tory and her pack trust Chance? Can they defeat The Trinity? Can they escape from the government agents? Or will they be played, pushed out of their home and locked up?

My Thoughts: I have read every single Virals book, even the short ebook ones and every single book gets you wanting more and when I found out Terminal was coming out I was so excited! Unfortunately it’s only been fairly recently that I’ve had the opportunity to read it.

Anyway, it was amazing! I couldn’t put it down, every page made you desperate to read the next! It was so compelling and because it had multiple story-lines going on at the same time you could never predict what was going to happen and there was never a dull moment.

I think Kathy Reichs’ Virals books are pure genius they are so good! Obviously credit to Brendan Reichs as well.

The Virals series is one of my favorite series of books ever and I always think once I finish one of them that Kathy and Brendan have out done themselves, that they couldn’t write a better book than this and I always think it’s sad because when the next one comes out it won’t be as good as the previous one and it always, always is! Kathy and Brendan have a way of keeping the main story-line going as well as all the books having their own little story-line within.

Usually in books I hate the whole love triangle thing but in Terminal the love triangle between Tory, Ben and Chance really worked. It was really great! And instead of thinking how ridiculous it was I found myself praying that she would end up with the guy I wanted her to end up with – Chance.

The characterization is really good and I feel like I know them, I feel like they’re my friends. And they’ve got such big personalities and it’s impossible not to love them and have a favorite. My favorite character is Chance Claybourne, I think he’s a really great character. He’s got so much story and history in the books but this is the first time he’s properly in it as a character and I’m so glad he was because I’ve been hoping that he will become a more main character ever since the series started and when it did happen I was so pleased! I think he’s an open book at the same time as not being an open book, you think you know loads about him but then there is always that one thing that you find out that you didn’t know before.

The book had an absolutely great ending! It was really satisfying and the book had been so great so far and so much had happened and then it ended, but I felt like it was the ending, ending like the story had come to a conclusion and there isn’t going to be anymore books and I became really worried because there has to be another one! It can’t be over! They’re so good! Someone please tell me there’s going to be another! Although, I really, really do think Kathy and Brendan have out done themselves, I just can’t imagine a way in which anyone could write a book that could top Terminal!

I totally want someone to make a TV series of these books and if they do I want them to hire me to be in it, it would be so amazing! And even if I wasn’t in it, it would be like my favorite show of all time, I would be sat there waiting for the first episode to air like two hours before it was supposed to air. I really hope it gets turned into a TV series or films. I’ve already got every season of Bones sat on my shelve so why not add Kathy Reichs other books to it?

It was one of the best books I’ve read in my entire life! I suggest, if you haven’t read the series, you go and buy the first book in the series (Virals) or reserve it at the library right now! Don’t even finish reading this review, I don’t even care just read the series because you won’t regret it! It will be one of the best decisions you’ve made in your whole life! (Although I’m not giving you a decision I’m telling you to go and buy/reserve the series!)

7/5 stars!
