Book 5: Empire of Night

 

Did you ever read that book you wish you’d written? Vampirates is that book for me.” Eoin Colfer

 

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.

He faces growing opposition from both the Pirate Federation, including Vampirate Assassin Cheng Li, and the Nocturnals – the more benign vampirate realm – led by Mosh Zu and Lorcan Furey. Both the pirates and the Nocturnals are forced to raise their game in response to the new and urgent threat from Sidorio and the renegade Vampirates.

Twins Grace and Connor Tempest, still ricocheting from the recent discovery of their true parenthood and its explosive implications, are thrust deep into the heart of the conflict.

Old foes and allies are thrown together in unexpected ways and, as the stakes rise higher than ever before, Grace and Connor find their alliances shifting in ways no-one could ever have possibly foreseen . . .

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

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)

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

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)

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)

OMG every one of us mad Junior librarians are fighting to see who gets to read EON first!kat shadow of the wraiths (Vampirates reader)

The books just keep getting better and better. They really rock!aimi atsuko (Vampirates reader)
