Young Bond #1: Silverfin

This is being thirteen with a rather nifty twist: being 007 in the making. (Too young to die? Don’t count on it!) The name’s Bond. James Bond. A schoolboy just starting out at Eton. A legend about to make his name. He’s not yet 007. But unless James Bond can solve this sinister mystery, he’ll never live to die another day… There’s something sinister in the waters of remote Loch Silverfin, far away in the Scottish highlands. Something secret. Something deadly. A monster that could unleash a new breed of warfare….

  • First in Charlie Higson’s massive Young Bond series
  • A must for fans of Alex Rider and Young Sherlock
  • Charlie’s other books include zombie horror The Enemy
  • “Writing for children of the highest order” – Spectator

    I really like this book because James is adventurous and he never gives u whatever happens. If you have already read this try the rest of the James Bond books by Charlie Higson.
