H.I.V.E, or the Higher Institute of Villianous Education is not a typical spy-adventure series. Otto, Wing and their friends attend the institute because they have ‘special talents’, or because they come from crime dynasties evil enough to make the Corleones nervous. They are taught everything from self-defense to computer hacking and their teachers have high hopes they will be future leaders of the Global League of Villianous Enterprises (a.k.a G.L.O.V.E and H.I.V.E’s grownup counterpart), and indeed the entire crime world.
In this latest adventure, the fourth in the series, the Dreadnought, a cutting edge permanently airborne crime HQ (purposely designed for secret keeping and instant world wide access), is overtaken by a rival organisation. Lead by a rogue G.L.O.V.E agent, the enemy threatens to expose both H.I.V.E and G.L.O.V.E to the world, and generally cause a great deal of trouble. Though they are young, Wing and Otto are the best infiltration team H.I.V.E has and it falls on their shoulders to neutralise the threat, free their friends and teachers, and save billions of other lives while risking their own – maybe they are the good guys after all?…
If you loved the Cherub series, it’s time to get your spy-action thrills with H.I.V.E!
