H.I.V.E – Higher Institute of Villainous Education

This is probably my current favourite series of books at the moment, even ahead of the Hunger Games and tied with the two Percy Jackson series.


It’s about a group of kids (high school age-ish) who are taken to a school called HIVE to train up super villains in the alpha stream (the leaders of global villainy). Unfortunately, they always seem to get into trouble inside and outside school. These are from the first book when they are first taken to the school. They are quite limited in number as I have been going around the different books in the series.

Higher Institute of Villainous Education - Nero picks out Otto and Wing as special - 26.04.2014
After the students arrive at HIVE, Nero discusses with Raven the potential super villain status students and the potential problem causers. He points out Otto and Wings with the potential for both. Later Laura, Shelby and Franz are also picked out as students with potential.
Higher Institute of Villainous Education - Wing deals with Block and Tackle - 02.05.2014
After the tour of HIVE, the new students have lunch in the student cafeteria. Block and Tackle (two students in the Henchmen stream) try to start a fight with Otto, but Otto doesn’t back down. Otto uses a nerve to knock out Tackle and Wing stops Block with his epic combat skills. Nero sees this and has his suspicions confirmed about Otto and Wing.
Higher Institute of Villainous Education  - Handing over HIVEmind - 06.04..2012
Laura, Otto, Shelby and Wing try to escape HIVE through the submarine pen, but Nero already knew their plans. The Submarine pen is a fake though and is, in realty just a concrete room. Wing tries to escape but Raven breaks his wrist to stop him. H.I.V.E.mind, the artificial intelligence who helped the students in their escape attempt, is temporarily shut down until his behavior is modified, which is what put the whole of HIVE in danger.
