Welcome to the exciting new installment of the Vampirate series Empire of Night.

Sidorio, fuelled by grief and revenge, is intent on becoming King of the Vampirates and building a new empire to bring terror to the oceans. But he faces growing opposition from both the Pirate Federation and from the more benign vampirate realm, led by Mosh Zu and Lorcan Furey.

Twins Grace and Connor Tempest, still reeling from the recent discovery of their true parentage and its explosive implications, are thrust deep into the heart of the conflict. As old friends and foes are thrown together unexpectantly, the twins find their allegiances shifting in ways no-one could ever have imagined…

Join the Tempest twins in this fifth dramatic encounter as they battle for the empire of the Vampirates.


With plot twists from the very start, Somper is at his swashbuckling best as he continues to write action with a fluidity that just begs you to keep reading.” Children’s Books Ireland (Bookfest Reading Guide – October 2010)

EON ROCKS!!!!!!!!! I love all the books, but this one is my favourite.madman (Vampirates reader – September 2010)


The story was so addictive and the characters were so compelling that it was pretty easy to sink into this title and not come back up until I was completely torn apart by the action, romance and tragedies found in EMPIRE OF NIGHT. Yes, there are all three in this title. And all three are done very well… this very well could be the best of the series thus far. They just keep getting better and better.Brooke (Brooke’s Box of Books Blog Page – August 2010)


OMG! I couldn’t believe page 370-374!!! and page 376! WOW!!!!!ever nightfall (Vampirates reader – April 2010)


Empire of Night is a real treat for Vampirates fans and a great way into the series for anyone interested in horror, adventure or good old-fashioned gore.Daniel Hahn (The Ultimate Book Guide – February 2010)


Empire of Night, like the earlier Vampirates books, is another riveting, compelling read. The terrific, absorbing plot not only fires the imagination but brilliantly combines the macabre and the familiar and the vivid writing brings every page alive. Somper is sensational.Niall MacMonagle (Teacher and Critic – March 2010)
