Dastardly villains are every bit as daring as courageous heroes. Jake can download the powers that he needs from the net but how powerful a villain can he become? Jake almost has the mightiest of the superpowers in his grasp but will he push on to the ultimate end whatever it costs? A thrilling read, full of magnificent inventions.

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.

Synopsis

Villain.Net 4: Collision Course by Andy Briggs

Jake Hunter is poised on the edge of true villainous greatness. With three of the six Core Power pendants in his possession he is about to unlock a mighty power: gravity control. With this awesome power at his fingertips nobody will be able to stop him from toppling the Foundation and Council of Evil once and for all.

Getting the remaining pendants will be tough: two of them are guarded by the leaders of the Hero Foundation and the Council of Evil. Only Leech, a dying hero, knows where the last pendant is and he is not telling unless he gets something in return. But the Dark Hunter is not the only one after Core Powers - a young team from Forge, under the leadership of Pete, has started searching for them as well. To make matters worse, Jake finds himself face-to-face with Lorna, his ex-girlfriend (who also happens to be a hero), and tough decisions need to be made.

As Jake's ascent to power continues, so do the risks. He accidentally puts the Moon on a collision course with the Earth. It's a cataclysmic event that will fracture the planet in two. Jake is playing a high-stakes game with the world. How far is he willing to go to complete his plans?

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…
