Escape Velocity (H.I.V.E. #3)
Students and staff at H.I.V.E.—the Higher Institute of Villainous Education—are horrified to discover that Dr. Nero has been captured by the forces of H.O.P.E.—the Hostile Operative Prosecution Executive—the world’s newest and most ruthlessly efficient security force. Otto decides that the only way to find...more
The book is about a new organization being formed called HOPE (Hostile Operative Prosecution Executive). The organization was made to defend the world from evil otherwise known as Glove (Global Enterprise of Villainous Evil). The first action to fight evil was capturing Maximilian Nero Head of the Higher Institute of Villainous Education. Otto, Shelby, Wing, and Laura leave Hive to try and re...more
This is the third book in the H.I.V.E series and I think it's safe to say it has been the best one so far. And I amk quite pleased with myself for guessing that Number One was Otto's father (which he kind of is). I can't r...more
I read "Escape Velocity" and i enjoyed because like the other H.I.V.E. books it was very appealing to me.

This author has actually come up to compete with Harry Potter in sense of a fictitious world building..and he has managed this by keeping it real..you get the sense of feeling that all the things he creates in his..again awesome..book might actually be real.
Otto is a bit of a disappointing book-hero but that's ok because Mark makes up for that with other equally engaging and well b...more
This is probably the first book in the H.I.V.E. series to present such a complicated arrangement of basically who is on whose side. The book takes off after Nero is kidnapped by a new organization, HOPE, and Raven disappears for the time being after falling into the river. Meanwhile, the Contessa relieves Professor Pike of his position as headmaster and brought along the Phalanx to ensure her safety. Otto and his friends have to travel and infiltrate M16, which is a headquarters that has never...more
The big drawback is that this book (and the 4th one that is coming soon) have not been issued for release in the USA. Thank goodness one of my students got a UK version through ebay and let me borrow it. Ah, the benefits of my job!

H.I.V.E. Escape Velocity is the fast paced, action packed book of the H.I.V.E series and it is full of pure AWESOMENESS! This book was just brilliant! There were so many plot twists that were so surprising! I mean seriously! Who would have guessed that Number One was (view spoiler)[The OVERLORD (hide spoiler)]? Seriously!
I highly recommend this series to...more
Otto decides that the only way to find Nero and the truth behind the lies is to escape H.I.V.E.
But he’s also struggling with some newfound abilities: Can he really unconsciously interface with computers without physical contact...more
This is edge of your seat action. Was just refreshing my memory on the author. Part of his background is in film ... and his stories show it. This would be a seriously fun movie series. The cinematic quality of the story shows itself in the pacing and description. How long until number four? It's going to be hard to wait.
No…really. Not just a bit slack, really, truly, breathtakingly lazy.
Which is why it’s taken me so long to get off my big, lazy rear end and get myself properly on-line.
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
