I am not aware of any recent or thorough reviews on the subject, but one of the authors here - Luis Villarreal - has written one (http://books.google.com/books/about/Viruses_And_The_Evolution_Of_Life.html?id=SYQB_qp6l8wC) , and Eugene V Koonin has published a lot of papers on the topic. If you use NCBI Pubmed to search the scientific literature using his name, or the names of any of the authors in the Viruses: Essential Agents of Life book, you will find a lot of papers on the subject. A lot of them (but unfortunately not all) will be Open Access, meaning you can read them for free.
