Totally capturing my imagination

This is a brilliant book to follow the first story about the young James Bond. The reader has amazing ability to make the characters come to life - a griping story which I didn't want to end. Off to download the 3rd book!!!!

Better book & great performance

What did you like best about this story?

Much better than Silverfin, this sequel has a much more engaging plot. From Eton, where Bond never really feels at home, to the strange, intriguing island Sardinia, the story takes the reader on a much more dynamic journey. Well timed switches in POV make it even more interesting. Though I will never be able to stop comparing to the superior Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz, "Blood Fever" makes me fall in love with the "teen spy" trope all over again!

What about Nathaniel Parker’s performance did you like?

Nathaniel Parker has a very enjoyable voice. He does individual character voices really well and made both the heroes and the villains of this story really come alive. Will definitely listen to him again!

Great family listening

The whole family enjoyed listening to this on a long car journey - children of 12 and 10 and 3 adults were all engrossed. Of course its a bit far-fetched (its James Bond after all!) but the reading is spot on. There are quite a few deaths, some a bit gory, so maybe not suitable for much younger children. The bit with the mosquitos was painful to listen to... A great adventure romp with plenty of bad villains to be defeated by our hero.

Spicy Itallian adventure

A trip down of life time. It tools us back to our school days, Just like the Young Bond. We were impressed with the spicy Italian history packet into a easy to follow story. When I close my eyes I see an image of Henry XIII , god bless America
