Praise for Andy Briggs:
'Andy Briggs vision of a world with super-hero's and super-villain's is a very original one and has been very well realised. These books are superbly written, the story sets off at a high pace and never once slows down...I have been well and truly hooked on this novel from start to finish, it is so close to being a super-villain film in book form, I personally cannot wait till the next volume and highly recommend this book.' – Antony, ScienceFictionandfantasy.co.uk
‘Tweens and younger teens who have wished for super powers will be drawn to this interesting concept, and there will be plenty of action to keep them reading.’ –Booklist
‘Every now and again, as a writer, I come across a book that is so simple, yet powerful, in its concept, that I consider it to be genius…and the latest is the twin series of HERO.COM and VILLIAN.NET…Having now read the first in the Hero.com series, I’ll be picking up the first VILLIAN.NET book as soon as I can. I suggest you do the same.’ – Tommy Donavan
