Book 2: Tide of Terror

 

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

 

Orphaned teenage twins Grace and Connor Tempest might now be travelling on the same ship, but that doesn’t make for plain sailing . . .

When a textbook pirate attack goes awry, Molucco Wrathe loses one of the most prized members of his crew. It’s a wake-up call to Connor and Grace concerning the violence of life aboard a pirate ship.

Cheng Li proffers a tantalizing invite for both twins to experience life at the elite Pirate Academy. There, Connor soon finds his loyalties torn between maverick Captain Wrathe and the all-powerful Pirate Federation.

Grace receives disturbing news from the Vampirate ship and plots a high jeopardy return.

Meanwhile, renegade Vampirate Sidorio stalks the coast – watching and waiting to exact a terrible revenge.

I would rate them as the best fantasy books I have read!Ethan (Vampirates reader)

You’ll read this book virtually without a break, it’s so brilliant, but be warned, you might cry a bit too!Sarah Blythe (Newcastle Upon Tyne Evening Chronicle)

It has left me itching to read more and curious about future twists to the series.” Sarah’s Book Reviews 

This is another exciting swashbuckler, filled with friendship, romance, a pirate school, duels, heartbreak, old enemies, divided loyalties and (needless to say) vampire pirates. It is sure to satisfy fans of Vampirates: Demons of the Ocean, who may appreciate in particular the competent female pirates as well as the hilariously dark undead humour.” Terry Miller Shannon (Kidsreads.com reader review)

This is a breathtakingly original twist on the currently fashionable pirate theme with a swashbuckling start, an exciting finale and many deadly duels and bloody battles in between. Hugely readable.School Library Association
