Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5–8—In this addition to the series, twins Grace and Connor learn their true origins and get into some romantic entanglements. Readers need to be familiar with the previous volumes, as this one picks up immediately following the events in Blood Captain (Little, Brown, 2008), with some new characters introduced into the fray. While Grace accompanies her mother to Crescent Moon Bay to see her father's grave, Connor is made an officer on Cheng Li's vessel. A new threat terrorizes the coast in the form of a ship crewed by female vampires. The Vagabond, captained by Lady Lola Lockwood, follows vampire Sidorio's ship and feasts upon his top crewmen, Jez and Johnny. Cheng Li is then tasked with destroying all Vampirates. Connor is conflicted since Grace is onboard the peaceful Nocturne, and he tries unsuccessfully to convince Cheng Li that not all Vampirates are evil. When Sidorio goes so far as to marry Lady Lockwood, Jez and Johnny tip off Cheng Li and Connor is charged with stabbing the Lady, known as Black Heart. Cheng Li's secret knowledge about Connor helps them to escape from Sidorio for the time being. This is a fast-paced adventure story with a few surprises along the way.—Corinda J. Humphrey, Los Angeles Public Library

First of all I love this book and the entire series and I can't beleve my mom won't let me read the rest because it has something to do with vampires. I am not happy I love my mom alot no matter what it is just that mythology is the best thing in the world to me and well I just wish that maybe she wold see that maybe mythology was a way to go into a world were the unthinkable could happen and that you could dream up anything and it could happen. I am NOT looking for pity. I look at it from a critics view and yes they is lot of vampire books but this one has pirates and vampires in it that must cont for somethinh.
