Overview

A renegade faction of the world’s most powerful villains is intent on destroying G.L.O.V.E. (Global League Of Villainous Enterprises) and showing the world the true face of evil. The Disciples begin by hijacking Diabolus Darkdoom’s Airborne command post, then they kidnap his son and his son’s best friend. Unfortunately for them, Nigel Darkdoom (and Franz) also happen to be Otto’s friends. Heading out to America, Otto, Wing et al embark on a perilous and highly unauthorised rescue operation. Cut off from the support of H.I.V.E. and on the run from American security forces the hunt for their friends leads to one of the US military’s most secret facilities. It becomes clear that the Disciples are not all they appear and in a desperate race against time Otto must work out who his real friends are and prevent the Disciples from completing their true objective. Only Otto can save the world from domination by a sinister new world order but it might be that the price he has to pay is just too high. When it comes to the crunch will he be prepared to sacrifice himself?

One of best books I've read. As a series, right up there with Alex Rider. My son said book 5 is best book he's read but he still prefers the Alex Rider series overall with H.I.V.E. a very close second.

At first, I was a bit apprehensive readifng this, I wasn't sure it was goin to be great. But once I started it, I was hooked. I couldn't put it down! Throughout the book, I found myself laughing, smiling, crying, and gasping. I can't wait to read the next book! This one was absolutely amazing, and I highly recommend this book to everyone! :)

I loved the first three books in this series! I can't wait for the 4th to come out! I know it's going to be amazing...

It was a good book, some parts were EXCELLENT and others just made me want to stop reading. This is simply just a review, not a summary or spoiler of this book. I liked the first 3 better, I felt this one was too technical, too rushed, and sarcastic/comedic for me. If you liked this book / series, I reccommend "Series of Unfortunate Events" or "Mysterious Benedict Society", both of which are series. (I enjoy reading mystery books and dialogue that isn't "overused"). I hope you enjoyed this review and take my suggestion in reading thise other series. (I also LOVE Erin Hunter Books/series, especially "The Warriors").

Read the series! Zero hour and dreadnought were the best.

What a thrill ride! Plenty of mystery and suspense to maintain your attention. While you focus on one aspect another one is developing at the next twist or turn in the storyline to keep your adrenaline pumping. Never a dull moment with this cast of characters. And you will not believe who will pop-up next in the plot. Each time you think you know who is around the next corner, SURPRISE! a new discovery. Fast-paced & action-filled that is the key words for this novel. :) :)

Dreadnought By: Mark Walden Dreadnought is the 4th book of the H.I.V.E. series. H.I.V.E. is a school where kids are taught to be evil for an organization called G.L.O.V.E. Now that may seem bad, but evil balances good. In evil, there is always competition to be the worst. The main character of the story is Otto, only a student, but he and his friends must stop a competing organization from destroying G.L.O.V.E. Otto is an orphan and has the spectacular ability to control or hack machines without actually being at the machine. His friends all have great abilities, whether it’s hacking, combat, escape, or controlling people with someone’s voice. Dreadnought is a fast paced story, all about adventure, friendship, and evil. This story is not at all realistic, but that’s why it’s under the genre of science fiction. This thrilling book is for anyone loving fantasy, futuristic technology, or adventure. Ahnaf M.

While Otto, Wing, Laura, Shelby, Lucy, Franz, and Nigel's Shroud( en route to a training excercise called the ninety three percenter, named for the percent of students who come back alive) takes a detour to the Dreadnought, they encounter an attack from H.O.P.E. The Dreadnought falls under H.O.P.E. forces' control. One thing leads to another, and Otto and the gang find themselves on a wild quest to reclaim the Dreadnought and triumph over H.O.P.E. and it's leader, Sebastian Trent.
