  1. Oh my gosh! I am sooooo excited!! I’m going to cry!!

  2. Exposure!!!!!! It sounds EPIC! Can’t wait for flirting between Ben and Tory and the triangle with Jason! I love the whole dark vs. light concept with Ben and Jason and Tory trying to decide. SHE SHOULD CHOOSE BEN. Its just how i feel about it. 🙂

    • I agree!!!! TEAM BEN FOREVER!!!

      • Woo! Too excited. Definitely team Ben.

  3. I AM SO EXCITED!! I read the first 3 books last year and I have been waiting for so long and have to wait longer because the book doesn’t come out till next year. I don’t know what I will do! I AM SO EXCITED!!!

  4. When can I preorder Exposure?

  5. Omg! Can’t wait!!!!!! I just wish Ben and Tory will be together! Haaaa!

  6. Virals! Seizure! Code! Exposure!.. Cant wait for you to be released. I love the Virals series. My favorite book series I have ever read. I love the chemistry between Tory, Ben, Hiram, and Shelton aka fantastic Four with there dog Coop. I would love to see how these boys grow in Exposure and show Tory’s relationship with each one grow as well. Do you think in future books you will take them on vacations to other states or countries to solve cases and mysteries?

    • You’re going to like Swipe!

  7. Will Swipe have anything to do with chance’s search for answers about the virals? Also, if it’s not then could you? I’ve always been fascinated by Chance as he has always seemed so in control but very fragile underneath. Also I really want to know how he feels about Tori because you sort of but not really indicate that he has feelings for her and I really want to know what that looks like with everything else going on in his head. Again me thinking that may just be speculation and wishful thinking ( at least the romance part anyway) but I think it would be really cool to see into the mind of our pseudo-villain/ love interest.

    • Swipe won’t touch the main Virals story lines — it’s a self-contained novella — but these issues with Chance are definitely something we deal with in Exposure. Stay tuned!

  8. I really can’t wait until this comes out. I am literally counting down the days!!! I love Tory and the gang. Hopefully there may be some romance? I swear the YA books have ruined my mind!!! Also when does Swipe come out?

  9. I love how long the Virals books are because I never want them to finish, so how many pages will this book be? Do you think of writing Anime/Manga Editions of Virals in the style of comic books? I think it would be cool to see the Pack written in that form.

  10. Will there be any differences you made in this 4th book that wasn’t in the first three? I also want to say how much I love Ben! I know him and Tory will probably get together at some point.

    • Exposure picks up after the events of Code, where the Virals have some repair work to do. But the story gets pretty wild from there.

  11. Is exposure going to be the last book?!?!

    • Nope! Look for the fifth in 2015!

      • Where can I see the fifth book?

        • I have to write it first!

          • Lol. Hey Brendan I love your books. I was wondering if your books will became movies not mediocre like Twilight and Host just saying. If your book does get turned into a movie I would think it would be of better quality since you are the son of Kathy Reichs who writes the Bones books and probably contributes to the show somehow.

          • Thanks! Working on it.

  12. What character/s are the easiest to write? Since Tory is Irish, Hiram is Jewish, Shelton Japanese and African American mixed and Ben is Native American will you talk about there culture more and have Shelton speak Japanese?

    • I don’t think Shelton knows the language, but I’ll have to check. First and foremost, the guys are from South Carolina, which I try to emphasize in the books. Tory is still adjusting to her new surroundings, but is become southern-fied as well.

  13. I absolutely love the Virals series!(: Should we expect more books in the series, or is Exposure going to be the final book?

    • Working on Book 5 right now!

  14. i have been waiting for exposure for about a year now and i am soooooo excited!!!!!! i love these books and never want them to finnish!!!! I can’t believe i have to wait until march to get it!!! thank you so much for creating this fantastic story with the best characters ever!!!!!!

  15. Hey Brendan firstly Happy New Year! I love how you depict the characters and their friendship, I love how important is to them. One of the best book series to have that. My question is will you show the gang going away to college?

    • I’m planning a college visit short story for next year. Stay tuned.

  16. Happy New Year Brendan and family. So I was wondering will Exposure deal with what happened at the end of Code with Ben and Tory situation or will The Virals learn to get pass that and become a team again do what they do best? Since now they somewhat broken.

    • This is the central question of Exposure. I hope you like it.

  17. I hope in exposure the pack heals coz you in the end of code, they’re broken ;(
    Also just genuinely can’t wait. My favourite series of books.
    Just amazing! So glad I live in the UK so yeh. Woo!
    And happy new year! 😉

  18. The ending of code really upset me for some reason!!! I absolutely love these books, and that is sayin something cuz I am a huge book worm!!! I cannot wait until march!!!! Any chance the realease could be moved back?!?! Lol

    • You’ll like what happens in Exposure, I promise. (I hope!)

  19. Brendan, I just started reading this series not too long ago. I just finished book one virals and loved it. It reminded my of the Maximum ride novels by James Patterson. Included bones which I do enjoy watching. So my question to you is, will you put a little romance between Tori and Ben? As in becoming a couple.

    • Good things come to those that wait.

  20. Omg! Brendan, I told to one of my friends to read the virals series… And you know what? She love it! Not more than me xD I writes days in my diary before exposure go out! In class, we have to read a book. So, my friend and I we read the virals series… Always! Sometimes, I look at her and I see her laughing. I laughed a lot too! Between, I want to say BEN AND TORY 4EVER! Seriously! I LOVE Ben! Victoria too!! I wish that they go out together! Sorry for my bad english xD I’m a BIG BIG FAN!!!! <3

  21. Hi! I heard that the virals gonna drift apart. Is that true? Please, tell me that’s not true!

    • They have a few bumps to work out, but don’t worry. The pack won’t fall apart on my watch.

  22. Omg. I need an excerpt

    • Will be soooooooon!

  23. Omg, Exposure is coming out SOON. Can’t wait. So where do you see the Virals series in the next few years?

  24. Omg! You, english people, are sooooo lucky! I have to wait longer than you D: Maybe 3 or 4 months… Why me????

  25. I love how Tory looks up to her Aunt Tempe so much and that we’ve gotten a crossover with Tempe joining in the viral series occasionally too! I love both series so I love when they mix! My question to you is, will we have more of Tempe in the viral series to come? In Exposure and onwards? I loved the novellas with Tempe going to Morris Island and then them meeting up at comic-con! Would love to see more of that!

    • Not sure how Tempe would work in Charleston — Tory is the star, after all — but she’s likely to make another appearance in the series at some point. Perhaps a third novella?

      • Yeah I can’t imagine her working in Charleston, but I would definitely approve of seeing them together in another novella!

  26. I cannot wait for this book. I been yelled at twice so I can get the book when it comes out. I gotten so serious about this book coming out that I am counting down. 20 more days until this book comes out. I cannot wait. I am a super fan of this series. GO THE VIRALS.

    • I approve of this comment.

  27. To tell you the truth Brendan. My sister, Carrie, she is didnt count the days, i did. She trys to take all the credit. I am so glad that the books i read, the main chasracter dont have brothers or sisters.
    Me and her had been posting on this site for the past week. Because we find been trying to find out all the news. But she steals my phone a little to much. So you have any ideas to make sure doesnt steal my phone?
    -Kimberli Outland, your number one fan.

  28. Virals Fans!! The day is almost here. One day away, Actually LESS THAN 24 HOURS!! Who’s Ready for more Tory and the Gang! No more questions we will finally get the Answers!!

  29. Hey, well you guys might alreadt got the book and started readibg. Well this girl finished the book. And to say, the book made me faint. Just warning you guys.

    • What do you mean?

      • What I mean is that, when you finish the book. Your life we be different. I fainted after reading the book. I can’t really spoil, but let just say that some moments between Ben and Tory are the thing that made me faint.

        • Good thing or bad thing? ‘Cause I don’t read it. I have to wait until it comes out in french.

          • It is a good thing it will blow your mind

          • Good thing, trust me i know evrrything about the Virals, so i know what happened

    • You mean the ending made you faint? Yeah, true.

  30. I just finished Exposure…. So umm thanks for that cliffhanger, Mr. Reichs. Could I possibly get a release date for the next book??? Even a tentative date would work. That was a terribly awesome ending. Like, I need to know what happens next now.

    • Oh, I feel you. Just finished it recently. That was a wonderful cliffhanger, though.

  31. What’s the 5th books name?

    • Terminal

      • I must have Terminal. Like, right now. Because Trinity and Ten (Tory/Ben) and Hila (Hi/Ella).
