What a great competition I wish I had the know how and the technology to take part. Instead I'll try and win the signed copy of the paperback and a new poster which is all I want anyway!

What a great competition! I wish I was tech-savvy:(

What a fabulous prize!

Not for me mind you as all technology ultimately dies a death in my hands and you would have to pay me with serious amounts of art materials and book mountains to get me in a video... even then it's not certain ;)

I'm with Pagecrawler on this one methinks. Good luck everyone :D

To be honest, when I read the back jacket synopsis of Department 19 I didn't know how the author, Will Hill, was going to combine Frankenstein, vampires, a government agency into a book and make it work.
Of course besides Frankenstein (who was one of my favorite characters) Hill does a good job demonstrating Jamie's urgency and worry about getting his mother back. Hill might have gone a bit far in Jamie's expertise in vampire hunting, but if he didn't give him that then it wouldn't have been a very fair fight in the story (and it certainly makes for some fantastic action.)
