Customer Reviews of Department 19 (Department 19, Book 1)

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great start to an interesting series Hill creates an intricate sci-fi world in which secret government organizations fight back the threat of vampires for the sake of humanity. It manages to take itself very seriously for a teen novel and is a hefty yet fast paced read. The characters are very well developed and no plot holes are left for the reader to question. I'd recommend picking this up if you want to get into this lengthy (but awesome) series.
