This review is from: Blood Fever (Young Bond S.) (Paperback)
Bond is back and this time he’s in bigger trouble both in and out of school. Being a member of the Danger Society isn’t helping matters but running over the rooftops of Eton makes James’ boxed up life at school slightly more bearable. Lessons seem dull and his adventures of the previous half seem unreal until a fellow student’s family tragedy links mysteriously back to one of James’ nights on the tiles.
What have shadowy figures speaking a dead language got to do with a series of robberies from his friend’s homes? James finds himself caught up in a variety of strange circumstances which seem to stem from the ancient school itself. Only in Young Bond can a school trip to Sardinia turn into a fully-fledged 007 mission. James finds his concentration jumping quickly from his studies to fix on conspiracy theories about murder at sea, a missing girl and a double M insignia. He follows an ancient art trail which leads him into the heart of a secret Italian society - thought to exist only in history books. Can James uncover the truth, rescue the girl and escape with his life?
This is the eagerly awaited sequel to 'Silverfin', it’s a fantastic read full of far-fetched settings, charm, one-liners, amazing adventures and some sticky situations. The baddies are up to scratch and the action-packed writing kept me glued until the end. Young Bond has all the ingredients for a classic cult following.
