Overview

As fans of the Vampirates series know, nothing is quite as it seems when Vampirates and pirates are involved, so twins Connor and Grace have to keep up their guards. But with every new challenge pulling them farther apart, it seems that the time has finally come for the twins to explore their separate fates.

Grace, unable to forget the blindness she caused her Vampirate friend Lorcan, chooses to journey with him to see if his sight can be restored. As for Connor, he must endure the latest addition to the Diablo crew: Captain Wrathe's awful nephew, who seems to dislike him from the very start. Will both twins find success, and what will it take to bring them back together?

I think this book was awesome. I think that Grace and Lorcan are starting to fall in love. I hope the next one is even better. Cant wait for the next one. If you like vampires or pirates then this is the book for you. But you have to read the first two books to understand what is going on. I also think people find Grace and the Vampirates more interesting.

Connor and Grace's tale progresses yet further, with reappearances of certain old characters, and timely arrivals of new ones. Although I'm enjoying the unravelling plot and the deeper exploration of some of the secondary characters, Somper's strained dialogue is starting to grate. A lot.

Ahhhh....adventure on the high Vampirate seas...this is a superbly fun series. Plenty of action in both Vampirate and regular pirate varietal. What's great about this series is that piracy is an accepted form of occupation. There is a Pirate Academy for the non-Vampirate and Sanctuary for the vampires who wish to become Vampirates. Sanctuary helps the vampires become less addicted to the bloodlust and more of a mellower vampire. The story trades back and forth between Grace's and then Connor's point of view. Each has their own trials and rewards, abilities and faults. One constant that each has had to suffer is Sidorio, the Vampirate who is now Captain of his own small, but growing crew. Sidorio was a member of the Vampirate ship and left to form his own when he decided that he wanted to be a vampire of the old school and is evil incarnate. He woos vampires to his cause and becomes a force to be reckoned with.A truly amazing series that I highly recommend. It's a YA series, but all who enjoy a good paranormal tale will dig each book. Five bloody high seas adventure beans......

I picked up Vampirates: Demons of the Ocean up on a whim thinking "I like vampires, and I like pirates, it'll be great." The first one was fabulous, so I moved onto the second one. It wasn't as good, but I continued on anyway. The third one was way better than the second. It is arguably the best book in the series.

Summary: As this book opens, the Vampirate Captain, Grace, and Lorcan are seeking the Sanctuary, a place where vampires can learn to control their hunger, and where the spiritual leader of the retreat may be able to cure Lorcan's blindness, which may have deeper psychological causes than simple sun damage. Connor, however, is learning more and more about what it really means to be a pirate - and when he acquires an enemy in the form of Captain Wrathe's spoiled, malevolent nephew, he must start making decisions about what kind of pirate he really wants to be.Review: Why do I keep reading these books? I mean, they're not *bad* per se (although the writing relies a bit heavily on telling rather than showing for my tastes), and it's a cool world, with likable characters and plenty of potential for interesting things... but nothing ever happens. Seriously, I think I could sum up the main developments of this installment in three or four sentences... which makes me wonder why exactly this book needed to be pushing 600 pages. I don't know how long the Vampirates series is planned to be, but normally the end of the third book is not where you start introducing new major characters and new plot threads... and at the glacial pace this series is moving, it'll be book eleven before the dangers foreshadowed in this book ever come to pass. We do start getting some answers about the backstory that's been hinted at since book one, but they're sparse... and then the book just ends, right when it looked like some forward progress was about to be made. Younger readers might not have as many issues sticking it out while Grace and Connor meander around, but each installment I read makes me less hopeful that I'll actually get any of the answers I'm after in the next one. 2.5 out of 5 stars.Recommendation: If someone were to come along and turn the first three Vampirates books into one single (and much-condensed) volume, I'd definitely recommend it. As is, though, the filler:plot progress ratio is too high for me to give this more than a lukewarm recommendation.

This book is really entertaining but i only gave it a 4 star rating because... i got a little lost while reading. Overall Justin Somper is an intruiging young author who writes wonderful books for all ages. Hisnseries give you a thrill and leave you 'pondering' or lets just say hanging for more suspense.
