HIVE by Marc Davies - Giveaway

M/M - Sci-Fi/Paranormal
Title: Hive
Author: Marc Davies
Date Published: 8/6/12
Publisher: Champagne Books

For centuries the Hive has waged a secret war, pitting psychic powers against the monstrous appetites of the Silencers.  Now its visionary leader has an ambitious plan to tip the balance, and the conflict threatens to boil over onto the streets of modern dayLondon.

Nineteen-year-old Luke is thrust into the conflict when he foils an assassination attempt on the charismatic Dr. Jean-Paul Lysayer, a world renowned expert on telepathy.  Down on his luck, and torn between an old flame and blossoming desire, the last thing Luke needs is to be used as a pawn in the eternal conflict.

But the Hive needs Luke's unique abilities, and when he uncovers evidence of a conspiracy it will take all his street-smarts to stay alive long enough 
to separate friend from foe.

We raced against time, frantically clicking on links that disappeared even as we viewed them. Repeated error messages forced us to chase obscure mentions of Lysayer now, websites that fed information from other websites, blogs and forums. They dropped like flies, forcing us to move on ever faster.
An email popped up on screen from Poppy Smoke. It said, Try this. A URL was pasted below, together with an alphanumeric password.
Ben looked at me. “This guy is beyond shady. Anything he suggests that we haven't found ourselves….”
“Do it,” I said.
He shrugged, clicked and entered the password when prompted. An index page loaded, displaying discussion threads. My eyes picked auction: FBI hit list and unreleased WikiLeaks files from the list.
“Freedom hackers.” Ben's face turned white. He went to close the browser.
“Wait!” I grabbed the mouse.
“Do you have any idea how illegal this is?” he asked. “There's probably a team of agents tracking access to this site as we speak.”
“Please.” I shook his shoulders. “I have to find out why she wanted to kill me and why I’m the only one who remembers.”
“Okay,” he said eventually.
There was a simple text search facility at the top of the page. Ben typed Lysayer into it. A discussion thread loaded, the topic called Hive, though it was also linked to Lysayer’s name.
Ben scrolled down. There was only one entry.
If you're reading this, it's already too late. The Hive will find you and make you forget.

Juls Review 
There were three movies going through my mind while reading this book, Fight Club, The Bourne movies and x-men. 
The Fight Club reference came when Luke is recruited into the Hive. No one talks about it.
The Bourne movies came in with the mind games and the tests you must perform before you are fully accepted into the Hive. And X-men well not really all the characters, just the professor. Him and his telekinesis. 

The Hive is a secret society that fights off alien like creatures known as Silencers. They are like body snatchers and take people as hosts to do their bidding. 

Luke along with his best friend Courtney attend a conference that is being held by Dr. Lysayer. While there Luke witnesses events that no one else remembers. He sees death only to see that person alive and kicking. Something is not right! Luke has no clue what is going on but before he knows it he’s thrown into a world that no longer makes any sense. 

Lysayer’s knows there’s more to this boy Luke. He has unspeakable powers that the kid doesn’t even realize he has. It’s time to recruit him into the secret world. 

Luke may have only been a boy yesterday but today he has powers where he can go inside the mind of anyone and manipulate them. 
Luke is in deep and swears his oath to the Hive. His findings have affected him and his friends. He doesn’t know who to trust and who to call his enemy. Someone within the Hive is a mole but to get more info he has to decipher the two. With the need to help his friends and to find the truth he stumbles into a fight he isn’t sure he was ever ready for. 

There were lots of twists and turns and this book never lacked action. Marc does an amazing job with his descriptions and the world he’s created comes to life.
