Most excellent sci-fi from wonderful author Michael Kanaly. I recommend reading "Thoughts of God" first, which is one of the best sci-fi books ever, in my opinion. "Thoughts of God" is so creative and metaphysical. We get a glimpse into God's actual thoughts to see how his thoughts affect things on earth. Personally, I'm a confirmed atheist, but this is still great stuff. Virus Clans is the story of a research scientist who notices that certain viruses seem to be acting in ways that don't seem commensurate with their typical random behavior. They seem to be intelligent, to be planning their actions. We also get to hear the story from the viewpoint of the virus clans themselves over millions of years. It reminded me a bit of the story by Robert L. Forward called "Dragon's Egg (Cheela #1)".
