  1. Our first impression of this book is that it looks extremly intresting and eye catching and would make a good read. It also seems a bit too wordy

  2. First impression
    It looks really good. The front cover is intriguing. The blurb makes it sound really interesting.

  3. it is quite eye catching and grabs the readers attention 😉

  4. Wow – what a scary story! This pageturner will keep you on the edge of your seat, you won’t want to put it down. After Jamie’s Mum is kidnapped, he is recruited by the top secret Department 19, whose aim is to track and kill vampires. I like the way the author has interlaced vampire legend into this present day story as if it was actual historical fact. In fact Jamie’s mentor in the Department is none other than Victor Frankenstein! Will Jamie be able to beat the evil Valeri brothers and save his Mum? I thoroughly recommend that you read this book to find out.

  5. A very exciting and enjoyable novel that keeps you reading through Plot twists and interesting characters such as Frankensteins monster.

  8. THE THIRD BOOK IS AMAZING I THINK LARRISA AND JAMIE SHOULD HAVE A CHILD I WONDER WHAT IT WOULD TURN OUT VAMPIRE/HUMAN

  9. Department 19 is a good and interesting book, I always want to read more when I have to finish it. The detail is very graphic in the characters and background but it was a bit slow at the start.

  10. This Novel is very enjoyable, I particularly enjoyed the chapters about Van Helsing as they added a backstory to the Novel. Though at times the story dragged on a bit but the action made up for it.

  11. I think the book Department 19 is a great book. It was full of action and was really interesting I thought it looked as soon as I seen the front cover I knew it would be very good and full of action
