Hive by Jeremiah Ukponrefe is a science fiction action-adventure tale. It’s set in the future after normal civilization has fallen, replaced by a new era where man has to work together to keep a dark force at bay called the Hive. Alexander King, a commander in the army known as the Collective, comes face to face with a new hive threat. Through a series of unexpected events, Alex and his men find themselves deep within hive territory. Soon, they are forced to join forces with the enemy in order to find a way to stop it.

Hive moves fast and furious through a complex plot that features the forces of good fighting the forces of evil. Battles depicted range from one-on-one fights to fully-fledged wars between groups. Fans of bloody battles with no-nonsense heroes won’t be disappointed. This book is anything but predictable. It has lots of twists and surprises that kept me guessing about what would happen until the very end. I applaud the author for his vivid imagination in crafting such a clever and thought-provoking novel.

Hive by Jeremiah Ukponrefe has many colorful characters ranging from the tough-but-caring Alex to the fearless Takeo to the wise-cracking Reese. Together, they form a fun group of heroes that adds lots of human interest to the narrative. In thinking of a movie or book to compare Hive with, the best I can come up with is Starship Troopers, the movie. There are no giant bugs in Hive, but the enemy Alex and his men are forced to confront is just as frightening and deadly in its own way.
