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 to 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?

About the author (2010)

Mark Walden's first book, H.I.V.E., was selected a winner in Richard and Judy's 'Best Kids' Books Ever'. Paramount has optioned the film rights, and it was chosen as one of ten titles for Booktrust's Booked Up scheme, which gives every secondary school student a free book. Mark has followed this success with two further titles in the extraordinarily brilliant H.I.V.E. series and has been selected as a WBD author for 2009. He is happily married (as is his wife, he hopes) and is the proud father of Megan.
