Vampirates is a series of books by British author Justin Somper, about a set of twin children, Connor and Grace Tempest, who get separated at sea and are picked up by two very different ships. The term Vampirate refers to a vampire living on the pirate ship, the Nocturne.
WHY I PICKED THIS BOOK UP
As a fan of both a vampire and a pirate in fiction, I was intrigued by the story and was interested in reading it.
WHY I KEPT READING THIS BOOK
I’ll tell you a tale of the Vampirates; a tale as old as true… (Be honest, you read this line in your pirate-y voice, didn’t you?)
Although the pacing of the story is rather quick and oftentimes cliffhangers; the plot being somewhat a little predictable and at times disappointing, I still like the twists that Justin Somper adds to the story.
WHY I WILL KEEP READING THIS BOOK
Even though I think it needs more action and detail of unraveling events, it’s still quite exciting to a young-adult-at-heart like myself and makes me want to read the next books.
