Jamie Carpenterõs life will never be the same. His father is dead, his mother is missing, and he was just rescued by an enormous man named Frankenstein. Jamie is brought to Department 19, where he is pulled into a secret organization responsible for policing the supernatural, founded more than a century ago by Abraham Van Helsing and the other survivors of Dracula. Aided by Frankensteinõs monster, a beautiful vampire girl with her own agenda, and the members of the agency, Jamie must attempt to save his mother from a terrifyingly powerful vampire.
Department 19 takes us through history, across Europe, and beyond - from the cobbled streets of Victorian London to prohibition-era New York, from the icy wastes of Arctic Russia to the treacherous mountains of Transylvania. Part modern thriller, part classic horror, itõs packed with mystery, mayhem, and a level of suspense that makes a Darren Shan novel look like a romantic comedy.
A combination of James Bond, Dracula, and the X-Men, this supernatural horror story is filled with surprises. After 16-year-old Jamie Carpenter's father's death and disgrace two years ago, he lives quietly with his mother. But when vicious vampires kidnap her, Jamie discovers the truth about his legacy. Taken to a secret government agency called Department 19, the British government's headquarters for the supernatural police, Jamie finds out that DRACULA isn't just a novel, Frankenstein's monster is his new partner, and he is plunged into the adventure of his life. Searching for his mother across the world, Jamie delves into conspiracies, danger, and a mess of trouble. This is the first in a series.
