Waterstones gives `By Royal Command` the thumbs up
Ahead of publication on 4th September 2008, UK bookseller Waterstones
have given the fifth and final Young Bond novel "By Royal Command
" a five-star review:
Once again the safe monotony of Eton life is interrupted for the young James Bond. Weary from his latest Caribbean adventures James takes time to enjoy a skiing holiday in the Alps. Yet all the hot chocolate and yodelling must take second place as old villains lurch from the shadows with ever greater schemes. Europe is on the brink of war as the emerging Nazi power shatter old alliances and cast political mayhem. By the grace of Royal command James must save his school, king and country. The British secret service has never needed James skills so much until now yet the young Bond starts to question his imminent life as international spy.
Try to put down at your peril âBy Royal Commandâ is perhaps the best Bond adventure we have had to date. It is with no small amount of garrulous gusto that I can pronounce an even greater array of action, adventure, gadgets, villains and of course Bond beauties. Wonderfully descriptive amid exotic locations Charlie Higson really involves the reader in details to readily devour. Realistic scenarios furnish âBy Royal Commandâ with an encompassing exhalation unbeknown to entertainment in pen and ink. Rule Britannia the young Bond is back!
