Book 1, Department Nineteen
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Jamie Carpenter's father is dead, his mother is missing, and he was just rescued by an enormous creature named Frankenstein. Now Jamie is pulled into a secret organization responsible for policing the supernatural, founded more than a century ago by Abraham Van Helsing. . . . Department Nineteen takes us through history, across Europe, and beyond - from the cobbled streets of Victorian London to prohibition-era New York, from the icy wastes of Arctic Russia to the treacherous mountains of Transylvania. Part modern thriller, part classic horror, it's packed with mystery, mayhem, and a level of suspense that makes a Darren Shan novel look like a romantic comedy.

I loved it
A lot of action and vampires.
This book is the best book I've ever read. It has a slow start, but it starts from the beginning, which is very good. I hate it when books and movies don't do that, and start in the middle of the action and you're thinking, "Did I skip the beginning of the book?"
Anyway, it's about a kid, whose father died, and his mother is captured by vampires, and to summarize the whole book up, he just has to go and save her. It's an extremely well written story, highly recommend, although the fact that this book series constantly switches between past and present can get confusing, it's still a great read.
