For three long years I've been waiting for more of the HIVE books to finally get a stateside release, and Escape Velocity did not disappoint in the slightest. As much as any three-year wait can be, it was worth it, as this is easily the best in the series so far, chock full of action, excitement, twists and turns, suspenseful moments and narrow escapes. I also felt like Mark Walden took a huge step with this book towards breaking his series away from its Harry Potter-inspired roots (the parallels were distractingly obvious at times in the first two books) and giving it a unique voice and feel of its own. The next one is already on my desk, and I can't wait to get started.
