Code by Kathy Reichs

Code by Kathy Reichs
2013, Young Arrow
Series: Book 3 of Virals

Synopsis: The Virals are put to the ultimate test when they find a geocache containing an ornate puzzle box. Shelton decodes the cipher inside, only to find more tantalizing clues left by "The Gamemaster." A second, greater geocache is within reach—if the Virals are up to the challenge.

But the hunt takes a dark turn when Tory locates the other box—a fake bomb, along with a sinister proposal from The Gamemaster. Now, the real game has begun: another bomb is out there—a real one—and the clock is ticking.

The Good: This was a really good, smart mystery. Well fleshed out and scary too. The pace constantly built in a perfect way.

The Bad: I'm confused as to the point of this book in relation to series plot progression. Shouldn't the kids be more into their abilities? Tory is the only one that even seems interested, and then it's only the one mind-meldy part of it. The romantic jealousy thing is grating. Moreso as Tory is oblivious.
