    Blood Fever has broken out early in the UK, with now shipping the new Young Bond novel!

    'Blood Fever'

    ‘Blood Fever’

    Hot on the heels of Charlie Higson’s successful debut, SilverFin, comes the second book chronicling the adventures of a teenage James Bond.

    In Blood Fever, James travels to Sardinia where he becomes engaged in an evil plot involving art theft, smuggling, pirates and a mad Italian count bent on restoring the Holy Roman Empire. Young Bond also endures what author Charlie Higson calls a “nasty” torture scene.

    Accompanying Blood Fever‘s release is a massive £120,000 marketing push including a “high-impact” television campaign and the first Young Bond mobile phone game from Player One, SilverFin.

    Further, Puffin Books and Player One are hosting the Young Bond Stunt Academy at Eton, the climax of an exciting competition that will result in one lucky Young Bond fan becoming immortalised as a character in both the next Young Bond book and mobile phone game. The Academy will be held 5 January, 2006, the official release date of Blood Fever.

    The U.S. edition of Blood Fever is due for release in June.

    The UK edition of Blood Fever confirms that the third entry in the Young Bond series is due for release in January 2007. Click here for the first details of this yet-to-be-titled book.
