Edit: Review now on The Book Zone - click here
Over the past few weeks there has been quite a buzz on Twitter about a certain book called Department 19 by author Will Hill. The book was unveiled to the big hitters of the book industry (including my friend Liz from My Favourite Books - you can read her fab report here) at a very special event held at the Churchill War Rooms in London. I count myself incredibly lucky to have been sent a proof copy of the book a couple of days later.
Since then I have received many emails (I think the total is now 23) from readers of The Book Zone asking me about this book, and so I thought I had better write this short post. Sadly all I am able to say is that it is brilliant - possibly the best action horror story I have ever read. Department 19 is going to be huge! However, it isn't scheduled for publication until next March and so you are going to have to wait some time for my review, which I will post early in 2011. The best place to go for any further information that may be released is the super cool Spill The Ink website - there is already a handful of posts on there about Department 19. You can also follow Will Hill/Department 19 on Twitter here. In the meantime here is a teaser trailer for you:
