#48 Vampirates: Tide of Terror by Justin Somper

My Rating: 7 out of 10 stars

I loved this second in the Vampirates series just as much of the first. Lots of action and adventure, and best of all, both vampires AND pirates! :)

This book picks up right where book 1 left off. We've got Conner and Grace, now both on the Diablo, the pirate ship that rescued Conner from the waters when he and his sister's boat capsized. They are happy to be together now, but Grace can't help thinking back to her time on the Vampirate ship, and she sorely misses some of them, especially Lorcan and Darcy. And she's also not so sure anymore that the Diablo is the right place for her and Conner....

So off to Vampire Academy they go with Cheng Li, to learn more about what it means to be a pirate and other useful skills. But how will what they do and learn there affect their future on the Diablo, or if they even return....

*waves to Cherie* A friend gave me this one in audio, but I got to get the first one to listen to first. Glad to hear that it is a good series! KathyB

yeah i wouldn't recommend reading this one without having read the first.

What a clear review, thank you. Most reviews I have read have not included Darcy, the 'figure of fun by night', so it is refreshing for such a key character to be included.

I am really looking forward to reading the first book! Should be a very interesting read.
