Fourteen-year-old orphaned twins Grace and Connor Tempest are together again aboard the pirate ship Diablo, but when an attack goes wrong and one of Connor's best friends is killed, Grace wants to find a way to keep her brother safe. Invited to spend a week at the Pirate Academy, Connor thrives, but Grace yearns for the life she knew among the vampirates--especially Lorcan, who blinded himself seeing to her safety. A ring he gave her allows her to walk the decks of the vampirates' ship through astral projection. Even though this is the second in the Vampirates series, following Demons of the Ocean (2006), it is easy to pick up the threads of the story, which sets plucky young people against Pirate Federation intrigue and the evil, renegade vampirates. This provides more of the swashbuckling action and horror-tinged fantasy that characterizes the series, which offers lots of appeal for reluctant readers. Diana Herald
