Vampires, Werewolves, and Witches live in harmony with humans, although the majority of humans don’t realize it. Liesel Andrews is a pre-med student who can see supernatural beings for what they truly are, making her the perfect choice to work at the local supernatural hospital. However, her busy-yet-mundane life gets interrupted when she’s called upon to investigate a mysterious illness affecting the vampire community.
Labonté adds to the pre-existing mythology of vampires, giving it some new blood (pun intended), and adding a level of curiosity to the virus (just… how?). As the first installment, Going Viral sets up the world and introduces key characters, giving you enough information to understand what’s going on, while leaving enough unanswered questions to keep you curious.
With the next installment out in June, there’s enough time for you to come up with your own theories and answers. I have my own ideas on how some things might play out, but we’ll just have to wait and see what happens next.
*Full Disclosure: I’ve only seen the first 2 seasons & haven’t read any of the books.
**But back in the beginning, you know, when it had a plot.
