Book Review: Dreadnought


Summary: A renegade faction of the world’s most powerful villains is intent on destroying G.L.O.V.E. (Global League Of Villainous Enterprises) and showing the world the true face of evil. The Disciples begin by hijacking Diabolus Darkdoom’s Airborne command post, then they kidnap his son and his son’s best friend. Unfortunately for them, Nigel Darkdoom (and Franz) also happen to be Otto’s friends. Heading out to America, Otto, Wing et al embark on a perilous and highly unauthorized rescue operation. Cut off from the support of H.I.V.E. and on the run from American security forces the hunt for their friends leads to one of the US military’s most secret facilities. It becomes clear that the Disciples are not all they appear and in a desperate race against time Otto must work out who his real friends are and prevent the Disciples from completing their true objective. Only Otto can save the world from domination by a sinister new world order but it might be that the price he has to pay is just too high. When it comes to the crunch will he be prepared to sacrifice himself?

Thoughts: A great continuation of a fascinating series! Dreadnought combines a lot more out-of-school action than previous books with some interesting plot twists.
 The returning cast was great and, though I don't have much to say about the rather clique villains,  one of the new cast did catch my attention. I'm not going to say who but, though they didn't have much of a presence here I see a lot of potential for this character!
The writing is the same as the previous books and while it sometimes lacks emotional depth, it never fails to make me laugh!

Content: Lots of violence and some bloody but never graphic or gory. Words suck as H*** and D*** are used infrequently but usually from one of the kids. 
 All in all, a relatively clean read for mature middle schoolers and a fun one for older readers!
