Hero.Com 4: Chaos Effect by Andy Briggs

Something is not quite right in the Foundation's War Room. The training robots powered by Hero.com are starting to take on a life of their own. A new villain is taking control - NanoMite. This fiendish cyborg is using his nanite swarm to take control of every electric appliance on the planet. Within days he threatens to plunge the entire world back into the Dark Ages.

For Toby, things are not looking so good either. Lorna is keeping a low profile after her relationship with the Dark Hunter is revealed, Emily wants to find their traitorous friend Pete - and Toby has a painful crush on Jen. Worse still, Toby's plan to bring down the Council of Evil is thwarted when he is assigned to train up fledgling heroes. To add insult to injury, a pair of new Downloaders are now everybody's favourite heroes. A dangerous game of one-upmanship unfolds between Toby and the horribly likeable twins, but Toby won't let anything distract him from his main focus. He is determined to bring wrongdoers to justice - even at the cost of betraying somebody close to him...

As civilization teeters on the brink of disaster, which heroes will save the day?


Too bad you can't actually download powers! Rob (14) Very good books which work on your deepest feelings about what would happen to you if you were a superhero or villain Jed (12)

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…
