Danger intensifies in the latest thrilling installment in an action-packed series!

Bad news for the Higher Institute of Villainous Education, aka H.I.V.E.: Overlord is reborn and has developed the chilling ability to move from body to body, erasing the host's personality--and ultimately killing them. Overlord must find Otto, the only host designed to truly contain him, and for that he needs to know the location of H.I.V.E. He also plans to take control of a secret U.S. Army facility that is home to the Autonomous Weapon Program, a computer-controlled system uniquely vulnerable to Overlord's control.

In the face of these threats, Nero is forced to activate Zero Hour, a plan designed to deal with any member of G.L.O.V.E--the Global League of Villainous Enterprises--who is on the brink of true global domination. Nero also knows that Otto must not be allowed to fall into Overlord's hands, and a desperate race across the globe begins.

Why did it have to happen to Raven????????? She was my favorite. Guys don't think I'm mad. She is awsome way better than Lucy, but why did He have to get to Lucy????? Now I'm permanently heart broken. Walden You're Pure Evil. And Mr. President, Mr. Malpence saved you on 2 battle fronts, repay the favor and don't go chasing him. Manners Sir.

Extremely funny. I've accidentally read this book first because I thought it was the first when I didn't check. Silly me.

"Bring it," Shelby said with a grin, raising both gloves in a defensive stance and beckoning him toward her.
"It will be brought," Wing replied.

Otto is back at HIVE, but Overlord will not let him go that easily. Otto is the only person who Overlord can possess for more than a few days, so he is searching for him. But the only way he can find him is if he finds HIVE, which is said to be impossible. But he has a new secret superweapon that could destroy the world, so finding an island shouldn't be too hard right? Nero knows that if Overlord gets Otto, it will be like the end of the world, so he activates Zero Hour, a secret plan to stop Overlord once and for all...
