Hive - J.K. Accinni This is the fourth book in the Species Intervention series. I still cannot say that I enjoy this series, as it is so dark, but it sure has me hooked! I do love it though!Abby, Scotty, Jose, Echo and Chloe, along with Captain Cobby and his son, Kane, Peter, Ginger Mae, her daughter Daisy and Kenya are thrown together in a race against time to get to the Hive before the terrorists strike. Along the way they meet Johno and the herd of elephants he is transporting to The Bronx Zoo. As the first bomb falls, a woman and her grandchildren are caught in the horror. Trying to survive and get to her husband, who is waiting for them, will take all her courage and wits.As I said previously, this is not the most enjoyable of series, but just like an observer watching a disaster unfold right in front of my eyes, I am completely fixated! The story is fast paced, edgy and very topical. This series is completely addictive, and just like a drug addict, I cannot wait for my next fix! There are just so many twists! Just when things are seemingly going along pleasantly (as much as they can in a disaster), the author throws the proverbial spanner in the works and the story spins in a completely different and (darkly) unexpected way! There are some shocking revelations, and more than a few unanswered questions, by the end of the book that have me itching to get hold of the next installment!J.K. Accinni has written an amazing series that shows the darker side of humans that frankly disgusts and shames me.On a personal note: What I would love to do to those characters like Armoni and company would more than likely have me sent to prison, but I would feel no remorse as they would deserve everything they got!I think that even though I'm from the human race, I would side with Baby, Echo and every other alien who decided that they would wipe us off the face of the earth. The things that people do to animals and each other is disgusting and depraved. We, as the human race, need to somehow cure this disease (violence towards animals and each other) that is pervading society It seems to me, the more we progress technologically, the more unattached (emotionally) we have become to nature and ourselves. Maybe wiping humans out IS the solution! (Sorry, rant over!).Due to the violence and bad language, I do not recommend this book or series to younger readers. However, I highly recommend this book (and series) if you love Science Fiction or Dystopian genres. - Lynn Worton
