News: Book Cover - Department 19: Battle Lines by Will Hill (Department 19 Book 3)


edit: Review now posted - read it at:

http://bookzone4boys.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/review-department-19-battle-lines-by.html

With all the excitement of the Olympics (and also being lucky to have a handful of tickets for events last week), I missed Will Hill announcing the title and cover of the third Department 19 book. Some of you may be getting fed up with me banging on about how brilliant the first two books in this series are, but I don't care and the number of hits my reviews of these books have received would suggest there are a lot of fans out there.


The title of the third book is Department 19: Battle Lines, although we are going to have to wait until March 2013 to read it. The cover, as we would expect, uses similar motifs as the previous two books, but the change of colour and the increasingly more powerful weapons that surround the D19 helmet make it look more menacing than ever. I have also included the blurb in case you have not yet read it - it has been on the HarperCollins website for a while but I wanted to hold off posting it until these further details had been released.


Click on this beauty to see it in all of its super-sized glory.
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.

    1. I am shocked that a book could actually make you feel as if you knew the people! I actually started to cry at some parts or actually felt fear while reading these two books! I can hardly believe I need to wait till 2013 to read the next!

    2. I agree with a movie, which would be brilliant, I would love a video game which wouyld suit well the series and I would pray for a comic book becaus e i love art.

      To make a summary, they should think about it.
