The Lovereading4Kids comment

If you’re looking for a book that is exploding with gadgets, gizmos, adrenaline, exotic landscapes and fun then look no further than this anti-series, of which this is the second, which is published alongside its antithesis, There’s even some integrated activity about the ‘series’ and the ‘anti series’ at 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. 1 is also available as is its antithesis 1 and 2. And finally, the books look and feel really, really cool – promise.

Synopsis Dark Hunter by Andy Briggs

Jake Hunter's fed-up with his new life of superpowered villainy. But archrivals, the Council of Evil and the Hero Foundation, don't care. Each side is desperate to use his unique abilities to defeat the other.

They can all get lost. Jake's going to use his powers to get what he wants: his family back. Even if that means destroying all heroes and villains. The Hunter is dying to get stuck in... but is the ordinary schoolboy inside Jake up to the deadly challenge?

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…
