Vampirates by Justin Somper Book Summary

Twins, Connor and Grace, never dreamed that there was any truth to the Vampirate shanty their father sang to them before he died, but that was before the two were shipwrecked and separated from each other. For Connor, who is taken aboard a pirate ship, there's the chance to learn to swordfight, but for Grace, aboard a mysterious ship of vampire pirates, the danger is great. What will it take for them to find each other?

"Totally original...I wish I'd had this idea." -Anthony Horowitz

Vampirates (Justin Somper) Book Reviews

I fell in love with the Vampirates series by Justin Somper!I accidently found this book while searching for a Christmas gift for my younger cousin. I was instatly hooked by the "Vampirates Shanty" on the back of the book. I waited a little while before getting it. (Christmas is for gifting others, not ourselves.) I have been delighted, horrified, saddened, and suprised by the various worlds that become so beautifully woven together. I have read each book of the series and cannot wait for the 6th book to be released in January 2012!.Score: 5/5

It’s Not That InterestingGreat concept and the characters were initially interesting but man… I got so tired of everyone being a nice pirate. This is definitely for a younger audience..Score: 2/5

Interesting, but nothing moreThis book was certainly an interesting read, enough for me to be curious about the remaining titles in the series, but that is about all. I found this in a used book store and picked up, thoroughly intrigued. I was disappointed in the lack of plot and the characters were rather typical. So, while this book held my interest into the second, Blood Tides, I think, it failed to pass my critique. I would give the book a three and a half, but since I do not have that option, it is only awarded a three star rating. If the plot had not felt so stiff and overused, perhaps it may have earned something more. Sadly, however, I cannot critique on writing style as it has been awhile since my reading if this novel, but from what I recall it was decent. A good first novel, decently written that will undoubtedly catch the eyes of the vampire crowds, though the whole friendly vampire idea does not sit well with me. I prefer the fierce, savage creatures of Dracula and Skulduggery Pleasant, where vampires are not to be trifles with in the least..Score: 3/5

Pretty good, but strange ending.Vampirates: Demons of the Ocean Book Review by Justin Somper I'd give this book 4 donors out of 5. Vampirates...the concept... the title... its one of those things that I wished I had come up with. It's a great concept. I must say, though, that I feel bad for the author. As I gathered my thoughts for this review I took a look at other reviews of the book, and some of them are just cruel. The book was a good book, in my opinion, even though it had a few quirks. This book has a ton of covers. Perhaps that a function of being originally published in 2005, and refreshing the book cover is a way to make it new again (marketing) and drive sales. Either way, the book has several fantastic covers, and as you know, I love a good cover. The story follows Connor and Grace Tempest, a couple of humble children that live with their father, who man's the lighthouse. One of their bonding traditions is for him to sing them a shanty as they go to bed. The thing is, its a little bit creepy, as its about Vampirates. Here it is: I'll tell you a tale of Vampirates, A tale as old as true. Yea, I'll sing you a song of an ancient ship, And its mighty fearsome crew. Yea, I'll sing you a song of an ancient ship, That sails the oceans blue... That haunts the oceans blue. The Vampirate ship has tattered sails, That flap like wings in flight. They say the captain, he wears a veil So as to curtail your fright. At his death pale skin And his lifeless eyes And his teeth as sharp as night. Oh, they say the captain, he wears a viel And his eyes never see the light You'd better be good, child- good as gold, As good as good can be. Eles I'll turn you in to the Vampirates And wave you out to sea. Yes, you'd better be good child- good as gold, Because- look! Can you see? There's a dark ship in the harbor tonight And there's room in the hold for thee! (Plenty of room for thee) Well, if pirates are bad, And vampires are worse Then I pray that as long as I be That though I sing of Vampirates I never one shall see. Yea, if pirates are danger And vampires are death I'll extend my prayer for thee- That thine eyes never see a Vampirate... ...and they never lay a hand on thee. The children's father abruptly passes away one night and, unfortunately, he has left them with nothing. The children, after listening to the local banker offer to take the children in, or to be forced into the orphanage, decide that their only chance is to steal their father's ship (it no longer belongs to him) and to test their luck on the open seas. They do this for some time, and get some distance out into the ocean, until a great storm brews and dashes their boat into pieces. The twins are separated, each scooped up by a different pirate ship. One crew consists of normal pirates, and the other, you guessed it, the Vampirates. The rest of the tale explores each of the twin's experiences on their respective ships, and their efforts to not give up hope of finding each other again. I felt the quality of the writing was very good, and so was the storytelling, even though the plot seemed to have some holes that could be addressed. The characters were fun, and distinct, even though some of the more critical reviews underscored the characters as something they wanted more from. Overall, I enjoyed the book, but the one thing that I found strange was the ending. The climax built up to what felt like might be an awesome pirate brawl, but it ended up getting resolved by simply correcting a character's identity, and then all was well. It was a little anti-climactic. Overall, though, it was a good read. I'll probably continue on with the next book at some point. Happy reading!.Score: 4/5
