The Rising

Written by Will Hill

Part of the Department 19 Series

The Rising Synopsis

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.

About Will Hill

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.
