Blood Fever by Charlie Higson​

Book Report

by Austen Bell

Blood Fever is the second in the ''Young Bond'' series which tells you about the adventures that James Bond gets up to when he is a school boy. You do not need to read the first book to be able to understand this one. There are four books in the series. The main character is James Bond who is at his seccond year boarding at Eton

While one of James' Eton friends Mark Goodenough is at school his family are attacked by a pirate named Zoltan, The parents shot and his sister (Amy Goodenough) and her tutor took captive. Part way through a school trip it is agreed that James can stay in Italy with his artist uncle Victor. After an attack to steal Victor's painting's it's decided it is not safe for James to stay with his uncle and he joins back up with his school group. The group travels to Sardinia, James is appalled by what happened to his best friends family and wants to do something about it.

This book is about the courage that James Bond had when he was a meer teenager not a super spy with all his specialised training, gadgets and Aston Martin's.

Charlie Higson is a great author, his books flow nicely and make you never want to put the book down wondering what is going to happen on the next page.

I recomend this book for 11 to 16 year olds depending or your ability. Boys would probaly prefer the book over girls although both would enjoy it. The young bond series is very similar to the Cherub and Alex Rider series so anyone who likes those books would definately enjoy it. I would rate this book 8/10.


This sounds a good book to read
