Department 19 Battle Lines

Department 19 Battle Lines

Book 3 from the talent behind the bestselling hardback YA debut of 2011. Dracula is on the verge of coming into his full power. Department 19 is on the back foot. Ladies and gentlemen: welcome to war. The stakes? Mankind’s very survival…
As the clock ticks remorselessly towards Zero Hour and the return of Dracula, the devastated remnants of Department 19 try to hold back the rising darkness.

Jamie Carpenter is training new recruits, trying to prepare them for a fight that appears increasingly futile. Kate Randall is pouring her grief into trying to plug the Department’s final leaks, as Matt Browning races against time to find a cure for vampirism. And on the other side of the world, Larissa Kinley has found a place she feels at home, yet where she makes a startling discovery.

Uneasy truces are struck, new dangers emerge on all sides, and relationships are pushed to breaking point. And in the midst of it all, Department 19 faces a new and potentially deadly threat, born out of one of the darkest moments of its own long and bloody history.

Zero Hour is coming. And the Battle Lines have been drawn.

This book like the others was amazing, well thought out and keeps you reading, in fact is difficult to put it down. I am sure this is going to be as successful as the other two in the series. This book is really awesome, with action all the way, lots of blood and gore, and vampires that are just becoming too difficult to kill. The Department is trying to pick itself up from the last battle training new recruits and researching why it has become so difficult to defeat the vampires.
The characters feel real, and that makes the story speed along, the descriptive text is amazing, you can feel those vampire teeth and the blood and gore that erupt from their bite.
This was truly an amazing read. I strongly recommend.
