Connor Tempest may only be fourteen but he's taken to the life of a pirate like a duck to water. But his loyalties are divided between his shipmates and his sister. Grace isn't finding the pirate life so appealing. She cannot shake the feeling that all is not well on the vampirate ship she left behind. Sidorio may have been expelled from the vampirate ship but his dark deeds are just beginning...
My Rating: 3/5
This is the second book in the Vampirate series and is the sequel to Demons of the Ocean which I read back in 2011.
Even though Connor and Grace are reunited, they soon realise that their lives are going in completely different directions.
Connor loves the fact that he is considered a pirate prodigy whilst Grace is left missing the Vampirate ship and the friends onboard.
When a fellow pirate dies, Grace is exposed to the dangerous reality of pirate life and becomes overly worried for Connor.
Trying to remove him from that environment, she convinces him that the two of them would be better suited to go to Pirate Academy.
I found the idea of Pirate Academy interesting but there was no sense of adventure in it. The period of time the twins spent there was substantial and quite boring.
By the end of the book, Connor and Grace have followed along with their separate destinies, setting up the third instalment perfectly.
