Bond Unknown

Bond UnknownBond Unknown by Edward M. Erdelac
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Owing to some Bond books having a murky copyright situation in Canada, this book contains two novellas about James Bond encountering the Cthulhu Mythos. The first, Into the Green by William Meikle, has Bond taking on a cult worshipping some kind of energy being drawn down from the Northern Lights. The second, Mindbreaker, sees Bond trying to stop a cult from awakening a Old One using the blood of a kidnapped princess.

I've only read a couple Bond novels. Into the Green feels more like a novel Bond. Mindbreaker is much longer and feels like a James Bond movie in novel form. They're both enjoyable but I much preferred Mindbreaker, with it's multiple locales, colorfully named characters, and generally feeling more like the Bond experience I'm used to.

Four easy stars, although I noticed some typos in both stories, like maybe the ebook wasn't created from the final versions of the files.
