Vampirates bk1 by Justin Somper

Vampirates: Demons of the Ocean 

Published:  2006
Genre:  Pirates, Vampires
Paperback: 352  pages
Rating:  4

Inspiration: - my daily segment for my Pirate Week challenge, September 13-19, 2009 hosted by Gofita's Pages

Twins, Connor and Grace, never dreamed that there was any truth to the Vampirate shanty their father sang to them before he died, but that was before the two were shipwrecked and separated from each other. For Connor, who is taken aboard a pirate ship, there's the chance to learn to swordfight, but for Grace, aboard a mysterious ship of vampire pirates, the danger is great. What will it take for them to find each other?

My thoughts:
In-a-word(s):  
   I'll tell you a tale of Vampirates 
   A tale as old as true. 
   Yea, I'll sing you a song of an ancient ship, 
   And its mighty fearsome crew.

Aye, a tale combin'in me lurv o pirates n vampires. Tis a good un!  Full o adventure n sea shanties fer feasting on. Aye, the lurv o the sea n the theme o freedom arr present as they should. Not to be fergettin, you'll be readin' another twist on vampire lore.

This be a book worth its weight in aztec gold. Savvy?

  2. My friends son loves these books. He tried to tell me what they were about: I think his telling took longer than reading the book did. Might have to pick one up one of these days.
