H.I.V.E. : Higher institute of vilainous education
by Mark walden
Author: Mark walden
Welcome to HIVE, A school dedicated to teaching extreme villainry. Run by the mysterious Dr. Nero and a whole host of other prestigious villains, this school is dedicated to creating the ultimate “bad guys”. There is only one hitch. You cannot leave until you have finished your six years of education. And with it being on a volcano in the middle of the ocean that's pretty hard to do….
Otto malphanese is just one of the new “recruits”. Taken from his orphanage without his consent, he and wing fanchu (who was signed up by his father without his knowledge) are plunged into this well hidden world, but already have a natural flair for evil. There's only one thing to do. Escape.
I especially enjoyed this book as it shows the “baddies” as the heroes of the story, rather than the villains. Mark Walden has used this effectively to create an exciting story line which also incorporates comedy. It shows the thin line between a petty criminal and a true bad guy, and shows then all as always trying to one up each other.It is the fist in the series of 7.
