The Lovereading4Kids comment

Another superpowered adventure from a master of pen and plot. If you’re looking for a book that is exploding with gadgets, gizmos, adrenaline, exotic landscapes and fun then look no further than this series, of which this is the second, which is published alongside its nemesis, Villain.net. There’s even some integrated activity about the ‘series’ and the ‘anti series’ at www.whichsideareyouon.co.uk where you can check out interactive pages, games, codes with markers forming a mission trail. Will you the reader decide to join the heroes at the Hero Foundation or become a villain at the Council of Evil. Hero.com 1 is also available as is its nemesis Villain.net 1 and Villain.net 2. And finally, the books look and feel really, really cool – promise.

Synopsis

Hero.Com: Virus Attack by Andy Briggs

Archfiends Basilisk and Worm are about to hijack Hero HQ. First though, they've got to infiltrate HERO.COM, the website from which the heroes downloaded their abilities.

When the site crashes, for some reason Pete, Toby, Lorn and Emily are the only ones left with powers... and they're not exactly brilliant at the job at the best of times.

But with the world under threat, there is nobody else. It's up to the friends to out-think, out-pace and out-plot the evil masterminds.

About the Author

Andy Briggs

Andy Briggs was born in Liverpool, England. Having endured many careers, ranging from pizza delivery and running his own multimedia company to teaching both IT and film-making (though not at the same time), he eventually remembered the contant encouragement he had received at an early age about his writing. That led him to launch himself on a poor unsuspecting Hollywood. In between having fun writing movie scripts, Andy now has far too much fun writing novels.

He lives in a secret lair somewhere in the south east of England-attempting to work despite his two crazy cats. His claims about possessing superpowers may be somewhat over-exaggerated…
