Rip-roaring Boy's Own adventure!

We have, in our 'big' car, those DVD players fitted into the headrests, so that the children can watch DVDs all the way down the M4.



However, my - small - car has none of these, so - finding myself with a spare credit one day - I grabbed the original HIVE book, to keep my 11-year-old son amused on the shorter journeys we do.



It's safe to say that we've both enjoyed the first two. Jack Davenport's voicing is first-rate, and has us in giggles whenever Franz speaks, and supports an excellent plot. In this follow-up to the original, the plot is faster paced and more directly into the action, and while adult listeners will probably guess the outcome of various events, it's still got plenty to offer in terms of one-liners and cliff-hangers.



We're now well into the third of these, and the DVD players languish unused.

Much Better Than Book One

After reading the first book in this series I was ready to give up on this series.
I'm really glad I didn't as this book has a far more interesting, complex and engaging story line. The characters are also more fleshed out, realistic and engaging. Lets hope the series continues to improve!

More of the same

Short and pretty good.

The story is OK, a nice setup for more to comes.

The writing's a little on the simple, formulaic, side but makes it a quick read/listen for those times your not really looking for something heavy.

Amazing book

I loved this book the plot is complicated with a twisting story line with baddies actually being good and many traitors. All of the children get involved but difficult to read with out reading the first one you must read to the end to reveal the truth well worth it. must read.

The series takes off

This is the second in the Hive series- and it really takes off in this book. My youngest son (an avid 10-year old reader/listener) tells me this is one of the best in the series. Like all of them, OP contains childish fantasy violence, but is suitable and engaging for children of, I would say, 8 - 11.
