The Lovereading4Kids comment

A real page turner, the fourth title in the gripping, fast-paced HIVE series moves effortless across time and space. The HIVE students are off on a deadly training mission in the Artic. Known as the ninety-three-percenter because of the number of students likely not to get back from it, the students know they are in for a tough time. But for the students the problems are even greater than expected when they find themselves hunted down by one of the most dangerous men alive. Dramatically twisting and turning, the plot keeps readers guessing right up to the end.


HIVE 4: Dreadnought by Mark Walden

Otto is on the run from US security forces - the least of his problems in a desperate race to rescue his kidnapped friends and thwart a supremely dangerous renegade faction of the world's most powerful villains


Praise for H.I.V.E series: 'A comedy thriller, full of baddies, action and lashings of humour

'An exuberant Dahl-esque escapade'

'Exciting, clever and all in all brilliant'

'A clever and gripping read'

About the Author

Mark Walden

Mark Walden’s first book, H.I.V.E., was selected as a winner in Richard and Judy’s ‘Best Kids’ Books Ever’. Paramount has optioned the film rights, and it was chosen as one of ten titles for Booktrust’s Booked Up scheme, which gives every secondary school student a free book. Mark has followed this success with two further titles in the extraordinarily brilliant H.I.V.E. series and was selected as a WBD author for 2009. He is happily married (as is his wife, he hopes) and is the proud father of Megan.

H.I.V.E: Rogue, published by Bloomsbury in May 2010, is the fifth book in the series. H.I.V.E: Zero Hour published in September 2010, is the sixth and H.I.V.E: After Shock is the seventh in the series.

Earthfall, published by Bloomsbury in June 2012, is a 3-D mega-budget action adventure in book form.
