So in my mind, this makes them the good guys; ok, maybe that is a bit of a stretch--how about we say: the anti-heroes? They don't wear white hats. They cuss occasionally. Did I mention the violence?...more
This is class as a Young Adult Novel, which is just about right. If you have ever wonder, which school villain suhch as Dr No and co attended this is the novel for you.

I’m the author of the HIVE series of books which I hope that some of the people who stumble across this might have read and enjoyed. Or read and hated…
I am fortunate enough to live with the two most beau...more
