Title: Vampirates: Demons of the Ocean
Author: Justin Somper
Summary: Twins Connor and Grace are freshly-made orphans after their storytelling father dies. Left with a tale of the ‘vampirates’ they set out onto the ocean to find a place to live. But a storm darkens their hopes as their boat is wrecked and they are separated – Connor is saved by a strong second-in-command – Cheng Li – of some not-so-honest pirates, and Grace by the mysterious boy Lorcan who never seems to go out into the sun… Will the two be able to find each other, let alone survive?
Who will like this book?: People out for a good pirate or vampire story that isn’t just about gore and violence. It holds some mystery, and is a great sea shanty as well.
