Department 19 Series
This novel focuses on the aim to bring Dracula back to his former glory. After Alexandru was killed the eldest Rusmanov brother, Valeri, takes up the challenge and cares for Dracula until he is fully recovered. This is estimated to take 91 days and throughout the novel new sections of the novel are introduced with the time until zero hour.
Thankfully the novel only gets down to 85 days until zero hour.
I would have been distraught if the series did not continue. The storyline also revolves around the disappearance and apparent death of Frankenstein. This is what was great about the title; it could attach itself to many aspects.
The rising of Dracula, Frankenstein yes it is a spoiler I am afraid but I knew it would happen as would anyone who has read the first book.
The development of Frankenstein was brilliant to. We were able to gain an insight into his life in the first novel, but only when considering Jamie's family's history.
In this book, due to his memory loss and Dept 19 unaware of his survival from Lindisfarne we were able to see more of his past from the eyes of other people he knew. The sub stories in this book were intriguing and just incredibly enjoyable to read. I must also add a note about Valentin who was a more involved character than before.
Firstly I must say that I love him. Even though he is a vampire, one that has little respect for human life. There was just something about him. He seemed eloquent and gentlemanly.
And even before we found out the reason behind his allegiance with Department 19 I knew he was trustworthy. I literally wanted to be his pet or wife Slight obsession at the moment. The characters were developed further, yes they had changed, for better and for worse, but their characters and behaviour was believable and easy to relate to.
The introduction of new characters was well thought out; new characters were there for a reason rather than just an inane addition. It developed the world of Jamie Carpenter, Vampires and Department The characters were strong and the continuing involvement of Matt Browning was a lovely sub plot that had purpose.
All in all I couldn't really find a fault with this book. I was incredibly impressed and satisfied with this novel and very much look forward to the next instalment. I will be writing to the publishers praising them and the talent of Will Hill because I am in awe!! I always feel like apologising about my reviews because I never know what to say and then say too much. To review this book is difficult only for the fact that the book itself is so complex and astounding that you have to read it yourself to fully appreciate it!
A word of caution — Department The Rising is a direct sequel to Department You have been warned! Vampire forces are gathering. Old enemies are getting too close. And Dracula… is rising. Vampires, werewolves and a secret organisation that keeps them all in check. The second book is just out on paperback and it picks up the action shortly after the climatic events that ended book one.
More confident and sure of himself than in book one, and more willing to take risks. The events on Lindisfarne have left their mark on him. Jamie is totally driven to hunt down the vampires that have caused his family and friends so much grief. Interspersed throughout the main narrative, there are flashbacks that cover some of the more important historical events in the Department 19 universe.
Also the origins of Dracula himself are finally revealed. It was great to discover the story of the blood thirsty warrior prince and how he became a monster with a thirst for blood. When I reviewed Department 19 way back in February , I specifically asked if there could be more werewolves in the sequel. The second novel is approximately two hundred pages longer than its predecessor, and Hill uses these extra pages to great effect.
He takes time to explore more of the monster packed universe that he has created. There is an international feel as the plot moves all around the globe; from the UK, to France, and the United States. The nickname for the US equivalent of made me smile.
This sequel is most definitely a case of bigger, better, faster, more. Hill has upped the stakes excuse the terrible pun , and there is a genuine sense that things are hurtling towards an epic conclusion. I liked book one, but I loved book two. The final hundred pages alone are utterly bonkers. Lots more action, loads more exploding bloodsuckers take it from me — this can only ever be a good thing and more twists and turns in the plot than you can shake a pointy stick at.
Bravo Mr Hill. The Rising is published by Harper Collins and is available now. The third installment, Department Battle Lines, is due in April It's no secret that Department 19 was one of my favourite books of so I couldn't wait to get my hands on the second book in the series The Rising. Although this was one of my most anticipated novels of the year I couldn't help feeling a little nervous when I picked it up to start reading - what if it didn't live up to my expectations?
I'm glad to be able to say that I wasn't disappointed and if Department 19 was a 5 star read which it was! I'm going to as It's no secret that Department 19 was one of my favourite books of so I couldn't wait to get my hands on the second book in the series The Rising.
I'm going to assume that anyone reading this review will have already read the first book so please be aware that this will contain spoilers for Department 19 - I will be careful not to give spoilers for The Rising though! If you haven't read the first book yet stop reading this review now and go out and buy it - I can't recommend this series highly enough!
The attack at Lindisfarne at the end of the first book has had huge ongoing consequences for all of the characters we know and love. Jamie may have built quite a reputation for himself amongst his colleagues by killing one of the oldest and strongest vampires in the world but he is devastated by the loss of his friend Frankenstein.
He feels guilty that he wasn't able to save him and is also worried about the changes in his mother.
Jamie is lucky to have strong bonds with Larissa and Kate though and they have been helping him cope. I love Jamie for how normal he is, despite the fact that he works for a secret organisation hunting down vampires for a living he is just a 17 year old boy and can be quite a moody one at that.
His relationship with Larissa is going well but keeping things a secret is adding extra pressure on both of them and Larissa has her own issues to deal with.
Extract from Department 19: The Rising
I really enjoyed getting to see more of Kate and Matt too. Since Lindisfarne Kate has signed up to be an Operator and is working in a team alongside Jamie and Larissa. The three of them work really well together and it was good to see a friendship between them all that didn't include some kind of love triangle. Matt returned home after recovering from his attack in the first book but found it impossible to settle back into a normal life. He may be Jamie's opposite in a lot of ways but he is a great addition to their team and I can see him having an important role in the future.
All of the characters have some heart wrenching, emotional decisions to make throughout the story and it was good to see how much they have all grown since we first met them. There has been some serious character development but that doesn't mean there is less action though, in fact the plot progresses at breakneck speed and with more twists and turns than a roller coaster!
Be prepared for some absolute shockers - I had to pick myself up off the floor a couple of times. The story takes you around the UK and Europe as well as on a road trip across the US as we follow the Department 19 crew and a few new characters.
There will be betrayals from people we trust, surprising new allies and a couple of shock appearances as the Department prepares for the rise of Dracula. The countdown has begun but are you prepared for the consequences? If you loved Department 19 then I guarantee that you'll love The Rising even more.
Will Hill has managed to top the first book in every way and the only disappointment is that I don't have book 3 yet! This series is a must for anyone who wants a gruesome, action packed story full of old style terrifying vampires who in most cases will kill you as soon as look at you. View all 8 comments.
No spoilers for this book though ; So Will Hill holds no punches now does he. This book rocked my socks and then knocked them straight off. I'd been hearing lots of super positive reviews and comments about this sequel but if i'm honest when I got it in the post my eye exploded at the size of it.
It's a brick of a book and I thought 'oh gosh that'll take forever! The start of The Rising sets up the impending doom on the way with the rising of the first and original vampire, Dracula. He's been raised from the dead and the horrors that are coming make the last book seem like a picnic in the park. This book is full of action packed gore and fighting that you'd come to expect after the battles faced in Department 19 but so much more too.
We get a real insight into the key players on both sides of this war and their past lives. It's like finding the diaries of people and finding out what makes them really tick. Going back and forth between the life at The Loop with Jamie Carpenter trying to cope with his new life as an Operator, the special situation his mum is now in after Lindsefare and his growing relationship with Larissa, a vampire girl who's now on the side of good. Their relationship is as complex as they come but the way they lean on each other and have the uncanny ability to read each other was one of my favourite things to read.
They may be one of my favourite couples I've come across in YA so far this year. Kate had been a girl that was caught up in the nightmare of an ending to Department 19 and now she's like a stealth ninja kick ass girl warrior.
She's awesome. She's the sort of girl you can imagine would just deal what was thrown at her and she does but she's not all hardcore warrior gal because she's just broken from what she saw and now is living her life fighting because it's how she can deal with it and fight back. Though my favourite character had to be one of the "bad guys" as such.
Valentin, one of the first vampires created by Dracula himself. You know he's done horrifying things and has no issue with them but you can't help but see his appeal.
The book itself is about the Departments race against time to find where Dracula is lurking and hiding until he's at full strength to return because once that happens there's no way he can be defeated. The Department is full of secrets itself which as you'd expect get revealed at just the worst moment, though the secrets you'd never guess. I had more than a few heart stopping moments reading it. The Rising is the kind of perfection of a sequel I wish some books could capture in their first novels.
Action packed and a horror gore fest with a wonderful balance of heart and personal struggles that makes The Rising a book about real things that linger in the dark but not a book just for boys.
Everyone should read this. While the initial installment took great lengths to set the scene and build author Will Hill's world - 'The Rising' reads true to the genre of splatter punk horror and no holds bared violence. There are more graphic depictions of vampiric mutilation than in the predecessor.
The gore isn't 'The Rising' is an intoxicating blend of horror, treachery, action and suspense fused together by a small group of Department 19 teen Operators whose bond is forged by the blood of their common foe - vampires.
The gore isn't without cause though, with each scene evoking a true sense of dread towards the sharp toothed monsters, adding further insight into some of their utterly inhumane ways and contempt shown to their live-stock humans. This series is YA yet there is a distinctly mature feel about 'The Rising'. No only did the story evolve from the first book but Jamie's growth from adolescent to young man provides a nice semblance and balance to the story.
Once again, the theme is mission driven, where first it was Jamie's mother lost, this time round, its a very close friend of Jamie's - one which will shock and awe fans with gruesome revelations, and interesting and thought provoking dynamics. Of all the solid points, probably the most entertaining aspect to 'The Rising' is the ever expanding history of Department 19 and its sister agencies across the world. In addition to that, Will Hill provides further insight into the rise of the vampires by spotlighting two of the eldest and most dangerous vampires in Valeri and Valentin Rusmanov.
Their relationship is one to keep an eye on - once brothers on the battlefield, now brothers in blood.
For the main trio of characters in Jamie, Kate and vampire turned Operative Larissa, all teens with raging hormones equal to their rage against evil vampires, the threats alluded to in the epilogue of 'Department 19' become all too real. Even the sanctuary of the Department 19 headquarters, The Loop is questionably secure. Without a doubt, this book had more twists and turns than most I've read in recent times - and more importantly, ones I didn't see coming.
This series is really heating up, I cant wait to see what Will Hill does with the third instalment. Aug 05, Maxine rated it it was amazing. I've stated my main points in my review on the first book and I stand by most of them. Good story, good characters, good ideas in general with only small things such as the romances giving me a slight tick of annoyance.
I really would have been more accepting of the romance if it had been building throughout the second book and only became official after the major fight. At that point they could have realised how they truly felt for one another and it just would have been so much better than it wa I've stated my main points in my review on the first book and I stand by most of them. At that point they could have realised how they truly felt for one another and it just would have been so much better than it was.
They even threw in the Shaun and Kate romance from nowhere.
At least with Larissa and Jamie we saw them meet. No, we were introduced to Kate and the next thing we know she's serious about this Shaun guy. And much like Jamie, I couldn't help but feel After everything you have learned and been through, is now really the time to be dating???
It seems like that romance really had no need to be in the book but to fill up pages and it bothers me. However I still gave this story five star for one reason and one reason only. Valentin Rusmanov. Anyone who says they dislike this character is either lying or stupid.
I am sorry but he is perfect! He is a bloodthirsty killer, but at the same time he is just so likable to me! He's funny!
He's sharp! He's quick! He's strong! He's the perfect character with so many imperfect flaws and that just makes me love him so much more and I just love him!
From the very first chapter he was in, I really liked him. This is the character I look forward to reading about. In fact, my favourite part for the whole of the book was the fight between Valeri and Valentin. It was so short but so intense! I could feel my excitement when he first shouted his brothers name and I just can't explain how amazing it was.
Even the fact that Valentin was better than Valeri, it was just So yeah, Valentin alone was amazing enough to make up for all the minor problems I have with the rest of the book and I am so happily looking forward to see more of him in the future books!
Die erste Schlacht ist geschlagen, doch im Verborgenen lauert die Gefahr. Es gibt noch einen Spion in ihren Reihen. Es hat sich gelohnt. Nachdem ich mich von der Reihe schon verabschiedet hatte, kann ich mir nun durchaus vorstellen auch den Nachfolgeband zu lesen.

Not the best book I've ever read, but not the worst either. Sep 04, Jan Carlos rated it it was amazing. This is possibly better than the Harry Potter series. I cant wait till the third book in the series is in the public library!
Spoiler Alert! Jamie Carpenter, the main protagonist, saved his mother from one of the Rusmanov brothers and is now an expert operator of Department 19 the Department Of Supernatural Anomalies and is also the boyfriend of one of his team mates.

Valentin Rusmanov has offered to help Jamie and Department 19 on one condition, he gets complete immunity from any murders he preforms to sustain himself and for Jamie to have a conversation with him.
Jamie left the base in search of Frankenstein A friend who supposedly died in the first book because of an intelligence report sent to Admiral Seward head of the department. I will leave the rest of the story for the reader to uncover. However, my tweeted despair quickly turned to elation when the wonderful, generous, thoughtful Will Hill emailed me a pdf of The Rising so that I could read it on my Kindle.
Was that a gauntlet I heard being thrown down? Come the following morning the plane took off, and as soon as I was allowed the Kindle was turned on.
If you thought Department 19 was amazing then fasten your seatbelts tight as the sequel is one truly fantastic ride. Will Hill has taken everything that was so great about the first book, and turned them up to 11! Now first the bad news — I really cannot tell you very much about the plot except for the very basics. At the end of the first book we were left with a number of questions and one massively huge jaw-dropping epilogue , and many of these questions are answered in one way or another in The Rising.
One or two of these really key developments I had guessed before they were revealed honest guv! This is not to say that they are obvious though, Will Hill keeps his readers guessing all the w ay through this one. The Dracula thing that had all those jaws thudding across the land.
Yes, in The Rising Dracula has returned, but before you get your hopes up, this story is less about Dracula and more about loads of other things, and it is all the better for this. Department 19 still stands against the darkness. But for how much longer? Book 4 in the explosive series from bestselling author, Will Hill. Department 19 still stands Zero Hour.

Will Hill Author As Dracula continues As Dracula contin My review of the book Department 19 Zero Hour is My review of the book Dracula has risen, betrayal has left Department 19 and their allies from across the world not knowing who they can trust, and rightly orHill has upped the stakes excuse the terrible pun , and there is a genuine sense that things are hurtling towards an epic conclusion.

The last place that moves the plot along is current day Arizona. Their relationship is as complex as they come but the way they lean on each other and have the uncanny ability to read each other was one of my favourite things to read.
