    One thought on “The Rising”

    1. The overlong, occasionally tedious, but overall super fun sequel to Department 19 has Dracula in it, trying to regain his strength after a long time as a dust pile and some bones, but, you know, no such memorable exchanges like this one:Buffy: Who are you?Dracula: I apologize. I assumed you knew. I am Dracula.Buffy: (fangirly glee) Get out!or this one:Xander: Nice. Look who's got a bad case of Dark Prince envy.Dracula: I have no interest in you. Leave us.Xander: No, we're not going to (imitates [...]

    2. Review originally posted atThe Book Zone (For Boys).If there was one 2012 release that I was looking forward to reading more than any other this year it was Will Hill’s Department 19: The Rising. I do not think I have stopped shouting about how wonderful I thought the first book was – I have bought multiple copies over the past year for various godsons, relatives, etc and I have recommended it to all of my friends and work colleagues who have teenage sons. It goes without saying that it was [...]

    3. I’m really enjoying the Department 19 series so far. (Once I got over scoffing at it using Dracula and Frankenstein and Van Helsing and all those other good old traditional things that is). Enough that I read the sequel in one day, pretty much, and was a little annoyed to realize I’m going to have to wait nearly a year for the next one. That is FOREVER AWAY, GUYS.Jamie suffers a little from the angry teenage boy trope, but at least he doesn’t speak all in capslock all the time like a certa [...]

    4. That was good damnit. I have never wanted to read another 700 pages since the start of this year, (that doesn't say much really) This whole series is literally what I'd want to read in a series. Secretly (not so secretly anymore) I am a diehard vampire fan. Since whenever I read the first book I did on vampires I have literally never been disappointed. (I have not read Twilight which may be the reason why) and vampires just happen to be my favourite supernatural species. Plus, this book was less [...]

    5. Caroline: bigbooklittlebookWhile the pink, fragile scar tissue acts as a visible testament to the horrors Jamie and his friends experienced that fateful night on Lindisfarne, the hidden physiological trauma is no less indelible. Having turned their backs on any semblance of normality and accepted a life of danger and responsibility in the pursuit of world safety, Jamie, Larissa and Kate are now feeling the impact of their decisions and experiences.A slick three person unit within the super secre [...]

    6. Darum geht es:Nach den schrecklichen Ereignissen auf der Insel Lindisfarne bilden Jamie, Larissa und Kate ein Team und begeben sich gemeinsam in den Kampf gegen Vampire. Doch alle drei haben so ihre Geheimnisse, die drohen, die Freundschaft, die sie verbindet, zu zerstören. Zugleich ist es dem ältesten der Rusmanov-Brüder – Vitali – gelungen, die Asche seines Meisters Vlad Tepes an sich zu bringen. Sollte es ihm gelingen, Dracula wiederzubeleben und dieser seine volle Stärke, bedeutet da [...]

    7. Action Packed! These series has to be pushing the boundaries on YA storytelling. Killing vampires is getting pretty darn graphic! Blood and gore galore. Is the main character still a kid at 17? Or a harden veteran in the war against vampires? This is a well written series that may be geared to a YA audience but this ole reader enjoys the series so far and I plan to continue on reading about Department 19. This was a digital library copy. I have a big old hardback version of The Rising. But I jus [...]

    8. AuferstehungLeidvoll müssen die Mitglieder des Department 19 erfahren, dass die Überreste des Grafen gestohlen wurden und damit seiner Auferstehung nichts mehr im Wege steht. Ihnen bleibt nur ein kurzes Zeitfenster, bis der älteste Vampir seine volle Stärke erreicht und die Gefahr besteht, dass er unbesiegbar wird. Doch zunächst haben Jamie, Kate und Larissa mit eigenen Problemen zu kämpfen. Jamie ist zum ersten Mal akzeptiertes Mitglied einer Gemeinschaft. Für ihn, den ehemaligen Ausgest [...]

    9. Personal Response: I thought this book was one of the best books I have ever read. It kept me interested the whole time I was reading it. It made me want to read the third book as soon as I finished it. Plot: Department 19: The Risingby Will Hill is the second book in the Department 19 series. The book starts off with Jamie, Larissa, and Kate stopping two vampires from invading a blood bank. They turn them in at the Loop for a project called the “Lazarus Project.” Only a certain amount of pe [...]

    10. Well where should I start? I can't say much other than I loved it. Will Hill is quite possibly a genius and a master when it comes to teenage horror/adventure novels. I think I can also safely say that it was a second instalment that did not disappoint and maybe even surpassed the first novel.I was exceptionally impressed by the first instalment and when a limited edition proof (I LOVE my job sometimes!!) of the second novel came my way I guarded it with my life. No one will ever get a chance to [...]

    11. A word of caution – Department 19: The Rising is a direct sequel to Department 19. If you haven’t read the first book in this series, and you really should, there is a distinct possibility that this review may contain minor spoilers. You have been warned!91 DAYS TILL ZERO HOURAT’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 h [...]

    12. It's no secret that Department 19 was one of my favourite books of 2011 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!) then The Rising is a 10 star one! I'm going to as [...]

    13. This review is for the second book in the series by Will Hill so will have spoilers for book one Department 19 and therefore THIS IS A SPOILER WARNING. 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 [...]

    14. '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. 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 [...]

    15. 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 [...]

    16. Die erste Schlacht ist geschlagen, doch im Verborgenen lauert die Gefahr. Den Rusmanov Brüder ist es gelungen, Dracula wiederzubeleben und dieser sinnt auf Rache. Jamie hingegen wird seine Schuldgefühle nicht los, die er seit dem Tod von Frankensteins Monster hegt und das seine Mutter als Vampir hinter einem UV-Vorhang in Sicherheitsverwahrung ist, hilft auch nicht gerade die Situation zu verbessern. Trotz seiner Heldentat, einen der ältesten Vampire auszuschalten, bekommt er noch immer stark [...]

    17. Now, some of you may remember (it was only last week!) that I raved about the first book in Will Hill's "Department 19" series. I've now read the second, & to be honest, I was a little disappointed.Let's deal with the positives first. The story still engages, moving on from the cliffhanger at the end of the first book. Kate (who was rescued from the attack on Lindisfarne) & Matt (who'd been attacked by Larissa) both survive, & join the department 19 team. The plot coheres well, & [...]

    18. 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 p [...]

    19. 1. I don't know when I started it and I don't know if that's a problem so ya.2.This book is about a kid named Jamie, and he goes into this thing called department 19, a vampire hunting agency. He comes face to face with dracula and he has to pretty much save the world.3.My opinion on this book was that it was a very good book to be completely honest, I liked how it moved along fast and how action packed it was. It moved along really fast it gave the background of the characters throughout the st [...]

    20. Department 19 is a secret government organisation which is responsible for hunting down all the vampires and making sure the rest of the population can sleep sound and safe in their beds every night without the knowledge such a thing actually exists. The people who work for them are hardcore fight machines trained and equipped using only the best, cutting edge and sometimes groundbreaking technology.Honestly this was one of my favorite series there is some mystery involved.I would highly recomme [...]

    21. Enjoying this series. Action packed and fun.This one was a little hard to follow at times because it was told from multiple viewpoints at times, and it also hope around chronologically as well.That aside, very exciting read, and I am looking forward to continuing the series.

    22. After reading the first one of this series I was hoping for just as good a sequel. Well it wasn’t as good, it was in fact astoundingly better!!Will Hill has wrote a fantastic series of books in this series and book two didn’t disappoint. The book picks up three months after the blood bath at Lindesfarne and after the death of Frankenstein, along with the death of Alexandrou Rusmanov.Jamie is now a lieutenant in Department 19, his friends Kate and Larissa (who is also his vampire girlfriend) [...]

    23. I just recently finished this book and I must say, the fact Frankenstein was still alive doesn't surprise me. The part where Frankenstein in his werewolf form eats Lord Dante is hilarious. I think the UV bombs part was a bit overkill. My question is, why didn't they just use that in the first place if they knew they were about to be over run by an entire army of vampires?

    24. Good storyI really enjoyed the first Depth 19 book and couldn't wait to get started on this one. It started well but seemed to slow considerably and it put me off but I stuck with it and glad I did.Highly enjoyable with lots of twists and turns and certainly value for money at 700 pages.

    25. Run, hide, pray, fight. Whatever you do, you must know: Dracula has risen and Department 19 have just nine days to track him down and kill him, before he grows too strong and wreaks his revenge upon the worldIt's been seventeen weeks since Lindisfarne and Jamie, Larissa and Kate are settling into life at Department 19. Jamie's made a name for himself, having killed one of the oldest vampires alive. Not, of course, that has made the other agents any fonder of him. But something is stirring. Vampi [...]

    26. The Rising picks up exactly where Department 19 left of, and is just as action-packed and entertaining as the first novel in the series.Let’s start of with what I liked: I liked the action scenes, the writing in general, and Larissa (although I’d like it even more if we got to see more of her as I think her story as the only vampire working with the agency in order to destroy vampires has a lot of potential) and Valentin (who is just fun for a supposedly evil vampire. I kept seeing Spike fro [...]

    27. The first novel in this series, Department 19, was very much enjoyed by both myself and the Squeeze, who found it a welcome break from the sparkly so-called vampires of you-know-what. When we found out the sequel had come out, we both looked forward to reading more about the secret government department that was once founded by Professor Van Helsing and the rest of the cast of Bram Stoker's Dracula.As you will remember if you read the first book, the events on Lindisfarne saw Alexandru Rusmanov, [...]

    28. As you might well know if you follow my reviews one of the books that most took me by surprise last year was Will Hill's Department 19. Even my wimpy girl self loved it and want to get my very own T-Bone and go out vampire hunting with Jamie (PS Mr Hill making me love teenage boys is bad enough but then teasing me about their future fate on twitter is just mean!)Department 19 is a secret government organisation which is responsible for hunting down all the vampires and making sure the rest of th [...]
