Puffin Books’ audiobook edition of Charlie Higson’s second Young Bond novel, Blood Fever, is now shipping from Amazon.co.uk. As with SilverFin, the book will be read by author Higson himself.
Blood Fever sees young James Bond traveling to Sardinia during his school break where he becomes embroiled in a plot involving art theft, smuggling, pirates, and a mad Italian count bent on restoring the Holy Roman Empire. In Blood Fever James will learn to snorkel and skin dive, and will endure what author Higson calls “a nasty torture scene.”
Meanwhile, the paperback edition of Blood Fever, which was shipping from Amazon.co.uk earlier this month, is currently listed as “Not yet published”. Presumably, the book will once again ship as its official release date (5 January, 2006) arrives.
