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
