H.I.V.E. #4: Dreadnought by Mark Walden

Dreadnought (H.I.V.E, #4)This book is the fourth in the series, and I gave it a rating of four out of five. The students are supposed to be heading to the Arctic for a "field trip", but they're captured by a group called the Disciples. The group really wants the massive airship, Dreadnought, which cannot be detected by anyone and is being used as G.L.O.V.E.S.' mobile headquarters. With Dreadnought, the Disciples have plans for the president and the nuclear weapons of the U.S. Otto and the rest of the students are the keys to stopping this evil plot.

Since the second book, it's been strange reading about a school for future criminals that is fighting against criminals. The school is training "responsible" criminals, while they're fighting criminals who don't care about killing millions of people. The students have unique abilities, and it's interesting to see how they're used to handle tough situations. It's kind of unbelievable how many times characters receive nearly, deadly injuries but manage to survive. Cats may have nine lives, but Otto and Raven seem to have used that many lives in the first couple of books! Nigel and Franz are becoming larger characters, and a new character with a disturbing past joins the school.
