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
About the Author
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.
