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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too 22 Feb 2008
By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER
After an unsuccessful escape plan, Otto and Wing acknowledge H.I.V.E. as their residence for now.

Unfortunately, Dr. Nero will have a difficult time explaining the circumstances of the attempted escape to the G.L.O.V.E. and Number One. Clearly, Number One is unhappy that the event took place, and Cypher believes that now is the perfect time to openly challenge the need for the school.

When someone attacks Dr. Nero, he knows that he must be very cautious, but when Wing's father dies, he must send him to the funeral. School policy dictates that in such an unfortunate situation, another student may accompany said student in distress. Otto and Wing travel to the funeral without knowing that they will walk right into a trap.

When Otto witnesses Wing's death he vows to take revenge on Cypher, thus creating an alliance with his old enemy, Dr. Nero. Together, can they stop Cypher's plan of world domination?

Mark Walden picks up the story shortly after the conclusion of the first book with a fresh batch of problems, along with intense situations and fast-paced action that will leave readers' hearts pumping with adrenaline.

H.I.V.E. is one of the best Mark Walden book series I have ever read! Another book where three different stories come together and create one big final story. A good story to make an action movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book ever 4 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Ok let's say you will just be mind glowed by this book it is amazing the perfect book for me. So if you are like me then you will like long adventure story's with a mystery always to be solved I was suggested this book by my brother and although I'm only 9 I still loved it. The language was fine there was no bad language in it or anything don't read it if your under my age because it has lots of blood guns and swords. It's quite confusing and takes a while to understand but it doesn't matter because it's such a long book. Basically what happens is there's 4 people Cypher Raven Otto and Wing. Wings farther dies so Otto and wing attend a funeral Raven comes to in case something bad happens. Then the place they are staying in gets attacked wing gets taken away then Otto and raven both follow in a helicopter the place wing gets taken blows up Otto raven and wing get separated Otto and raven go back to the school (hive) then it gets attacked and something happens I'm not going to tell you because it's a surprise and It will ruin the plot. That's basically what happens do read it it's brilliant it took me a week to finish (I'm not that slow my kindle ran out of charge and I didn't put it on) but we'll worth it if you ever wonder why it's called the overlord protocol then you will find out at the end. OMG I FORGOT TO TELL YOU THAT RAVEN IS TOTTALY EPIC I WOULD LOVE TO BE HER THE WAY SHE SWINGS HER SWORDS SOUNDS AMAZING SHE IS EPIC I WANT TO BE HER SO WILL YOU WHEN YOUV READ THIS BOOK hope you like this comment as it took me ages to compose. Thanks for listening

5.0 out of 5 stars Hive 2 28 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book among with others in the series for my grandsons when they come to visit, as the classic 'Disney stories' are now far too young a read for them. I think they appreciated having something more of their own age to read at bedtime, and are the sort of books they read from their school libraries. So yes, I think they were a good buy.
