H.I.V.E is an international academy for evil villains. A boy named Otto, who lives at an orphanage, sabotaged the Prime Minister’s address by hypnotizing him and making a fool of himself and the government. He and a boy named Wing, an Asian boy who has a super villain father, are taken by a helicopter to H.I.V.E. to begin their learning of evil. While they’re there, they meet up with a Scottish girl who hacked a defense system, and an American girl robbed several jewelry stores without being detected, earning her the nickname, Wraith. They realize they don’t like it there, and decide they want to get out. There is a kid there that has one of the most evil dads ever, named Sylas Darkdoom, who can’t seem to do any of his villain classes except bio-chemistry. Sylas begins working on a type of a Venus Fly Trap, which will be important in the ending.
I gave this book four out of five stars. H.I.V.E was full of descriptive sentences, and flowed well.
