Book 1: Demons of the Ocean

 

A swaggering tale of excitement and adventure that thrills from the very first sentence.” Cressida Cowell

 

The year is 2512. The oceans have risen. A new dawn of piracy has begun.

Following the sudden death of their father, teenage twins Grace and Connor Tempest hastily depart the suffocating small town of Crescent Moon Bay in their dad’s old sailing boat. Caught in a vicious storm, they are shipwrecked and separated in the cold, cruel ocean.

Connor is saved by Cheng Li, Deputy Captain of The Diablo – the notorious pirate ship, captained by flamboyant rule-breaker and pirate royalty, Molucco Wrathe.

Grace, meanwhile, is taken by handsome Midshipman Lorcan Furey, onto a mysterious ship with no name, a blood-red deck and an enigmatic, seemingly absent, Captain.

In a world of danger and secrets, will the twins ever be reunited?

 I became an instant fan the very first day I read Demons and looked forward to all the other books thereafter.” Otso (Vampirates reader)

 From sword fights to Feast Night, this first book takes you on journeys of wonder and discovery. When I read this last summer, I fell in love with the series. It was easy to read, something to enjoy, but it was also a book where you see how the main characters change and develop all the time with their settings.” Faythe (Reader Review at Fresno County Public Library)

Loving every minute of it!” upp 4 (Vampirates reader)

Get ready to be washed away by this exciting, swashbuckling adventure.” Karin Perry (teensreadtoo.com reader review)

 After reading this 330-page book, I was awestruck by how original and amazing it was.” Haille Bailey-Harris (thestar.com reader review)

My friend tossed DEMONS OF THE OCEAN on my desk and said “you’ve gotta read this book! it’s really good.” So I returned my other books back to the library and had the first 200 pages done by the end of that night!” bmk1999 (Vampirates reader)
