I have been obsessed with this series for the last couple of weeks and couldn't wait to get my hands on book 4! I will be honest and say I thought it would be the last one in the series - it is not!!! There is one more to come, this book ends with the simple words 'to be concluded' but those simple words hold so much weight and meaning. I can't believe I have to wait to find out how it all ends. Considering this book only came out in June - it's going to be at least a year until the next one, how can I possibly wait that long!? I hope I am wrong and it's much sooner than that - I have to know how it all turns out.

Anyway onto the review -

Zero Hour continues where Battle Lines left off but a couple of months further down the line - the hour of Dracula's return is closer than ever and the Department 19 team are pushed to their limits. Every officer available is out on recon missions - scouting out vampires and bringing them down, some more dangerous than others, but each day the threat rises and life becomes a struggle just to survive.

Our main character is still Jamie but Larissa, Matt, Katt, Turner and Holmwood all play much bigger parts and that's how I like it. The whole organisation seems to have come to life and all of the people feel like team mates - people I know and trust. They step off the page and into my mind and heart, I route for them, fight with them and feel their hope and loss. I could not be further into this world without physically climbing through the pages and now I have finished this book I feel a little lost.

At one point I looked at this book and thought 'how can this not end in 700 pages - surely there can't be that much too it, and another book to come?

I was a bit annoyed with the first book, because the heroes were so fixed in their hatred of vampires, where as we, the readers, saw vampires as good and bad and often an uneasy mix of both. By this book it is clear that Mr Hill understood what he was doing and was challenging the readers to disagree with the consensus.

Though the hero of the book is Jamie Carpenter, for me, the stand out character is Larissa. She is the reason I pre-order Mr Hill's books. He has created a sidekick/friend/lover who stands out in the field. And he keeps her and Jamie human, even though she hasn't been from day one.

This is a great adventure story, a great fantasy, an evolving series that grows in stature with every book published. This is the best so far, but I expect the next book to be better.

When I read the first Department 19 book, I stated that it was the best action horror that I had ever read. And then Will Hill raised the goddamn bar with his second book, The Rising. Then, like the great Sergey Bubka, he teased us by raising that bar even more for Battle Lines, and as spectators we were left wondering whether Will Hill had it in him to continue doing so. All we could do was watch and wait. And now Zero Hour is upon us, and yes, that bar has gone up again and Hill has sailed over it.

Before I continue, a word of warning. This is the fourth book in the series and as such this review will contain spoilers for previous books, so if you haven't read them then please do not read on. Secondly, I'm not sure how much I will be saying in this review anyway - with every new book that comes along in this series it feels more and more wrong to mention plot points in a review. Seriously - if you want to know what happens then just read the book.

As a quick reminder, the end of Battle Lines left us with 46 days till Zero Hour. Things had not gone well for Jamie and his team (understatement). Jamie's friends had also gone through hell, whether physically or emotionally, both in the UK and, for Larissa, over in the US. And then there is the matter of Julian Carpenter - alive and well, and back on British soil, but as a high security prisoner whose identity is known only to one or two people.

Zero Hour picks up the story with seven days till Zero Hour, and things are beginning to look very desperate indeed for the members of Department 19. The breakthrough they have been hoping and praying for just hasn't materialised. Kate and the Intelligence Division have data that predicts nothing but disaster of apocalyptic proportions for the world's non-vampire population.

The first book in this series was cracking. From the start it never let up and I was engrossed. The second book was not as good, but that could be forgiven as the first one was soooo good. The third was shocking. It sagged in more parts than I did when I hit 30, and it felt that the author was just padding it out to get this to a five book series. So I purchased the fourth, only beause I was armed with the knowledge that this was the penultimate book. This has better content than the last book and moves the story along well. But I have become disengaged from the characters, and have stopped rooting for them .
Will I buy the last book ? Hell yes, just to see if Mr Hill can deliver the goods like he did in the first.
