I have reviewed two books by author Andy Briggs today because they are supposed to (and should definitely) be read together. The two books are part of two different “anti series.” Each series is one side of the same story.
One of the books is titled Hero.com: Rise of the Heroes. It’s the first book in one of the two series. There aren’t many words that can describe it, but two come to mind: Awesome. Suspenseful. Makes you want to gnaw on a chair in excitement. I think one of my favorite parts in this book was when Toby, Pete, Lorna, and Emily (the main characters) are battling the supervillian Doc Tempest (another major character) in his icy lair in a mountain in Antarctica. If I could rate this book on a scale of one to ten, I think I’d give it an 8,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.
The second book is titled Villain.net: Council of Evil. It’s the first book in that other series I mentioned in the introductory paragraph. Here are nine words to describe it: ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I HAVE EVER READ!!! My ABSOLUTE favorite part in this book was when a 14- year – old boy named Jake Hunter (the main character) learns the terrifying truth about what has been happening to him over the course of the past few days (over the course of his life, for that matter) from the superevil supervillain Basilisk.
Anyone who likes the Internet, adventure, and superpowers, or is just sick and tired of having their opinion made for them (that all superheroes are 100% good and all villains are total madmen), these books are for you. In case you’re hooked like me, the second book in the Hero.com series is titled Virus Attack and the second book in the Villain.net series is titled Dark Hunter. Watch this space!
