Justin Somper has created memorable characters in Connor, Grace, Lorcan, Cheng Li, Captain Wrathe, and the others who populate the two ships, especially the insidious and dangerous Sidorio. As the narration flips between the two ships, readers, too, will easily be caught up in the tales there are to tell here and in volumes to come. Plenty of booty, blood, and betrayal will make this an instant classic for readers who enjoy loads of action and suspense.
PS: I corrected the name of the author. Justin Somper. Sorry for the error. My husband accidentally knocked the copy of the galley into the loo and it went for a swim. Needless to say, I have not handled it much until I was able to dry it and disinfect it (he swears it was an accident, but really, VAMPIRATES setting sail in the toilet is too much of a coincidence).
