    "Our little Bond is growing up."
    If you could sum up By Royal Command in three words, what would they be?

    Classic, Espionage, Maturing


    What did you like best about this story?

    By Royal Command starts to fit the mold of the traditional Bond stories. The action and suspense are good, though a little predictable at times. The story really starts to suport the older Bond's character traits, particularly his treatment of women and his disregard for regulations. During his adventures, he learns that you have to watch who you trust. Even the good guys have their own agendas. He also learns that falling in love can be even more devastating than the worst villain.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Gerard Doyle's narration is good, but not great. His proper British accent works well for the Brit characters, but not so good for the other characters. Nathaniel Parker, on the other hand, does a superb job creating unique characters voices in the Young Bond 1-3 books.
