Hive, Paperback / softback Book

Hive Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Near-future Britain. Climate change has led to food shortages and civil unrest.

Pollinating insects are in steep decline.  Commercial bee farmer Victor Martin travels around the farms of Kent with his hives to pollinate fruit trees and crops.  Local research entomologist Dr Annie Abrams is devastated when she’s ordered to give up her captive bee colonies – her life’s work - to join forces with Victor and ensure a harvest.  But the bees are dying.  Their only hope seems to be an experimental alternative to insect pollination: robot pollinators called nanodrones.

But why does the drone designer seem so familiar? And who is behind the shadowy organisation intent on sabotaging their vital work?

Can Annie and Victor win their battle to save the bees… or is it too late?
