There are a couple of very exciting new title releases this week, including Anthony Horowitz's last Alex Rider book, Scorpia Rising. One we're all super-excited about though, is the debut novel by Will Hill called Department 19.
You might think you've had enough vampire novels to last you an eternity, but we urge you to think again! Will Hill has managed to come up with a book that is so original, fast-paced and thrilling that you'll literally be on the edge of your seat!
Without giving too much away, we can tell you that Department 19 is the official government department which has been protecting us mere mortals from supernatural threats ever since Van Helsing defeated Dracula. Everything Bram Stoker wrote was true, and teenager Jamie Carpenter is about to discover just how dangerous vampires really are. Forget the garlic though, these creatures are tougher than that, and Department 19 is at the cutting edge of high-tech weaponry.
Department 19 is definitely a book for teens - it's fairly bloody, but it's equally excellent for boys and girls, and would be just the thing for a reluctant teen to get their teeth into.
