BOOK NAME: H.I.V.E. Higher Institute of Villainous Education
AUTHOR: Mark Walden
School can definitely be scary, but imagine if your school specialized in training young super villains! That is exactly what H.I.V.E. does! The Higher Institute of Villainous Education (aka H.I.V.E.) trains the criminal masterminds of tomorrow. Just a few of the courses available at H.I.V.E. are Villainy Studies, Stealth and Evasion, and Tactical Education. Otto Malpense, however, isn’t interested in staying at H.I.V.E. for six years of training. Kidnapped and transported to H.I.V.E., Otto simply wants to get out. Easier said than done! No one has ever escaped from H.I.V.E. before. An immense techno-security system, squadron after squadron of armed guards, and a labyrinthine system of passageways are all standing in the way of Otto’s escape. Can he and his friends Wing, Laura, and Shelby beat the odds and escape from H.I.V.E.?
This book was an awesome read! It was one of the best science-fiction books I’ve ever read! One thing I like about this book is that it is mysterious and leaves you with some questions. For example, a dangerous super villain has some sinister intentions for Otto, but the book leaves those intentions a mystery, and it makes you want to read the next book in the series. The book is fast paced, and each page has a new situation. On one page it might be bullies, on another it might be a man-eating plant. Students can somewhat relate to this book because H.I.V.E. has all of the elements of a regular school; classes, homework, grades, tests, and even bullies, but the major difference is that the education provided at H.I.V. E. is strictly for evil purposes only.
