The Rising (Department 19 #2)
Author(s): Will Hill
The pulse-pounding sequel to DEPARTMENT 19 - "The best action horror story I have ever read" according to Bookzoneforboys...
91 days till zero hour. That's 91 days to run. 91 days to hide. Or 91 days to pray for Department 19 to save you...
After the terrifying attack on Lindisfarne at the end of the first book, Jamie, Larissa and Kate are recovering at Department 19 headquarters, waiting for news of Dracula's stolen ashes.
They won't be waiting for long.
Vampire forces are gathering. Old enemies are getting too close. And Dracula... is rising.
PRAISE FOR DEPARTMENT 19 "Bram Stoker can stop turning in his grave: his 21st-century legacy extends beyond Twilight." - The Telegraph "Enough weaponry to satisfy the most warlike of pre-teen boys and enough action on every page to qualify for a health warning" - Belfast News "Injects some blood and thunder back into the vamp mythos...this is a lively set-up to what looks to be a fun and blood-soaked YA thrill ride" - SFX Magazine "Hill hits the ground running in this explosive debut, an action thriller inspired by a genre classic... this is a nonstop thrill ride right up to the cliffhanger ending. This cinematic adrenaline rush has the makings of a surefire hit." Publishers Weekly "...plenty of high-octane action, groovy specialized vampire-fighting equipment, buckets of gore, intriguing historical side trips and even a little romance..." Kirkus Review
Before quitting his job in publishing to write Department 19, Will Hill worked as a bartender, a bookseller and a door-to-door charity worker. He grew up in the north-east of England, is scared of spiders, and is a big fan of cats. He lives in east London with his girlfriend, where he splits his time between staring out of the window and staring at a computer screen. The latter tends to be more productive.
