Vampirates!

Vampirates by Justin Somper: Amazon.com:
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?
I've heard about zombies and pirates! But now we have vampires and pirates! What a fun combo! I'm definitely putting this on my TBR list. This is a children's book series so it probably doesn't get too bloody! So I wonder whose blood they suck when they're out at sea? Maybe they are more "humane" vampires and only eat the blood of fish? Or do they ravage ships and ports alike? Maybe if this were a more adult series they'd be doing more ravaging! But in any case, it looks fun!

  1. Hey, I just remembered a YA series that was highly recommended to me -- The Bloody Jack series -- girl disguised as a boy on a ship that hunts pirates.

  4. I've heard of this series and I'm curious too! I've actually heard of vampirates before, but pretty much only in webcomics.
