Bond lives for a world of snobbery and violence that is, at the high end, fast, glamorous and expensive or, otherwise, sinister, spine-chilling and villainous. During his getaway, James stumbles upon a weird building with a bunch of stored art and people speaking Latin. He thinks differently about what he had thougt before. A good read for both younger readers and older fans! The universe of cruelty and menace inhabited by these thrilling monsters is not found in England’s green and pleasant land but in the corrupt and steamy outposts of ‘Abroad’, a place we know to be inhabited by foreigners.

James Bond gets himself into another crazy adventure in Blood Fever! Another enjoyable Young Bond adventure that romps along but over did things with dragged out finale. The plot keeps untying on its way to end and keeps you entertained all through.

Not sorry I read it, really, and not sorry it’s over. Having put up with Carnifex for as long as he could bear, Zoltan turns against Carnifex by flooding his palace leaving it in ruins. A teacher who’s a criminal is just silly. I’ll also be reading the rest of Higson’s books; such as The Enemy. Is there something more to it? From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

However, Jana Carnifex, Ugo’s sister, is waiting for them. Meanwhile in the Greek islands a boat is hi-jacked and the English army captain on-board with his crew are killed, whilst th James Bond is a pupil at Eton and finds life a little pedestrian with the exception of the Danger Society he is a member of.
