The Rising

Book 2, Department 19

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


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.



“Bram Stoker can stop turning in his grave: his 21st-century legacy extends beyond Twilight.” – The Telegraph

“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 non-stop thrill ride right up to the cliff-hanger ending. This cinematic adrenaline rush has the makings of a sure-fire hit.” Publishers Weekly

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.

Bloody amazing, hands down!

Give this author a reward(if he ain't got one already, I'm not to sure when writing this at 4:44am and not have slept) for a hands down amazing book and series, I know it's been 3 years since it's making but he'll it's gonna stay with me for the rest of my life literally it's on me phone so I ain't ever gonna loose it.

Will Hill department 19 the rising

Brilliant book carries on the thrilling story from the department 19 with an exciting twist in the story of cornel Frankenstein. A definite read for any one with a sense of adventure 5 star.

Good book... I think

This is a good book I think but with many error so I advise buying the paperback version of it because it has entire chapters missing disappointing.
