Virus-like particle: manufacture the proteins that the virus uses to attach to/penetrate a cell.  These are assembled without the DNA or RNA of a real virus.

Some parasitic wasps make them, to distract the immune systems of caterpillars they lay their eggs in from attacking the eggs..

The technology isn't new, been available and used on vaccines for a number of years now. That being said, using them for cancer is neat.

Yeah, it is a lot of fun until there's a weird romantic twist at the end that's a bit squicky.

Yup. I enjoyed it enough to read it again a couple of years later.

Yup. I was debating whether or not to mention that...that did lower the quality of the series imo. Maybe it shouldn't have, but I didn't see it coming and it simply didn't make sense to me.
