Fantastic addition to the series,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: H.I.V.E. 8: Deadlock (Paperback)
Another excellent book in the HIVE series. The events of the previous book provide the launch pad for the action scenes, with further development of the main character (the adorable Otto) and a couple of the secondary characters.
It was another fast-paced story that will appeal to the YA market, as well as those of us long past those years but who are still attracted by a good story, told in style.
The author is building anticipation for future plot development with some hints of things to come as the plot evolves. The great cast of primary characters will obviously be facing more challenges and danger in the books ahead and I am keen to see where the author takes them next.
I feel almost guilty giving this four rather than five stars but I very, very rarely give five stars so four it is. If you have never read any of the HIVE series, I strongly recommend you start with the first book and work through the series. It is well worth it and each book builds on what happened before. You could read this as stand-alone but it is much more satisfying with an understanding of the background to the characters and the world of HIVE.
