More About the Author

Mark Walden spent ten years producing video games before finally deciding to that perhaps it was time to do some real work! With the bitter taste of his rejection from the NASA astronaut training programme still in his mouth he decided that maybe he should try to write a book instead. Inspired by his friend's cat, Mark wrote the first H.I.V.E. novel and his love of all things villainous was born. The H.I.V.E. series will extend to six books in 2010 and will prove to be darker than the inside of a baddie's lair. He lives with his wife and young daughter in Hampshire and is continually plotting ways to take over the world!

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By R. M. Wareing on 28 Oct. 2009
Format: Paperback
After reading the previous three H.I.V.E books, I didn't think Mark Walden would be able to come up with any interesting and original ideas, how I was wrong.
Dreadnought offers a new exciting storyline, along with 1 more main character with a familiar ancestor. In this book, the students take a "school Trip" to the artic, but on their way there they need to drop Dr. Nero off at the new ship the Dreadnought, and after that things start to go terribly wrong, so the students along with Raven and Dr. Nero need to free the captured Diabulous Darkdoom, in an excellent new H.I.V.E adventure.

Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
Dreadnought is the best book I have ever read. It felt more like you were watching the action unfold rather than reading it. I couldn't put the book down, whenever I had a spare moment I would read the book and I could loses hours of time reading it. I have never reviewed anything before as I only like to review things that are worthy of 5 stars. Get this book and you will will not be able to put it down!

Format: Paperback
Dreadnought is the fourth book in the H.I.V.E. series following Higher Institute of Villianous Education, The Overlord Protocol and Escape Velocity. In this book, Otto is still adjusting to the knowledge that he had learnt from Number One, and still has not told anyone. There is a new face on the scene, and Laura seems to feel threatened, although she still maintains she doesn't like Otto. The four friends are on their way to an Arctic training exercise, when their visit is interrupted with a tour of Darkdoom's new flagship Dreadnought. But while they are there their tour is interrupted by an unknown adversary. Can Darkdoom hold out against this mysterious enemy? Can Otto save the day again? Read the book to find out!

This book and the rest of this series is highly recommended by me, because it is gripping and exciting and you can't put them down until the end!

Mark Walden's fourth book in this excellent series for young adults is, once again, another adrenaline fuelled adventure.

In this wonderful world of fiction Mark Walden has created some wonderful characters and dreamed up some bizarre uses for technology.

In this instalment, our new baddie is attempting to create a new world order for him to command whilst framing HIVE for the destruction he will bring about. But, guess who is on hand to try and avert disaster?

Yes, our regulars are joined by a newcomer in their attempt at keeping things as they are. They go about it in their usual unique way.

Another roller-coaster of a ride, this series is going from strength to strength. The books remind me of those by James Rollins. He also mixes adventure and action with technology to great effect.

I thought this book was brilliant, it was action-packed,fast paced and it hooked me from the very start. If you have not read the others then I would advise starting from the first one which is also fantastic. I do think though that the books all have a similar plot and could do with some more new ideas!

This is one of the best series I have ever read, they just get better and better, think James Bond but if he were at school learning to be a villian instead meets mallory towers, all the innocence of a kids book where the kids can be the heros but in a modern and up to date setting. I am 30 and i have read the whole set and the new one due out in 2013 is on pre order and I am counting down! I often find kids books better than adult ones as i enjoy the innocence of them compared to adult books i would rather it be about the adventure of the story.

these books are fast paced and utterly addictve
