Dare devilry and technology are smartly combined in this exciting adventure. Four children are transformed into superheroes through the power of a web site. But being a superhero means fighting some super-villains – and they fight tough. Can the four new young superheroes save their mum and save the planet? Why not also try the book Villain.net: Council of Evil, the anti-series that’s is being published alongside its antithesis to decide for yourself which side you’re on.

Freddie aged 10: "I loved this book because it is about normal teenagers who stumble across a website in the middle of a storm that gives them superpowers, my favourite is being able to throw fire balls from your hands! They have to use their new powers to defeat a super villain (with an hilariously egg shaped head) called Tempest who has stolen their Mother who needs insulin to keep her alive and time is ticking away. This is a thrilling book and I would recommend it to any 10 year old because it has a quick moving plot and it’s action packed. There is also a book called Villains.net, which is all about anti heroes and is just as good."

About 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 ...
