This week we focus on the HIVE series of books by Mark Walden. There are 7 books in the series at the moment. Imagine a school where you are taught to be criminals. Where a lesson in chemical weapons might be followed by a lesson in Computer Hacking..... this is HIVE. The beginning of the first book has a feel of Harry Potter, even of Charlie and the Chocolate factory, as Otto, Wing, Shelby etc... are introduced to the volcano where they will spend their schooldays and to their new teachers.
"My book is called H.I.V.E by Mark Walden. The characters in this book are called Otto, Wing, the Contessa, The Quarter master and the H.I.V.E Mind. I really enjoy this book because Mark Walden has put some effort in to it. At one point he has put a thought which I really like. I’ve only started the book but even though I say it’s the best book ever. I highly recommend this to people in year 5 and 6 who like Percy Jackson and Harry Potter books. Otto is only 13 years old and this is his first time and H.I.V.E." by Elliot
