Format: Paperback
DEAD DEEP is only 69 pages long, but those 69 pages are pure brilliance.

Having read both DEMONS OF THE OCEAN and TIDE OF TERROR, I was excited at reading a tale set in-between these two amazing books. I pondered what the title could mean, conjuring images of pirates buried at sea rising from their watery grave... I was shocked by what actually happens. And shocked in a good way.

Connor, Bart and Jez- the Three Bucaneers - are on shore leave from The Diablo and spend their time in Calle de Merinero. A floating city of taverns. Soon, trouble occurs and the trio find themselves on the run. Luckily, they land on a ship where they think they are safe.

The Lorelei is captained by a new friends father. Kally is very much fancied by Bart and when they plan to go diving, trouble occurs again.

I don't want to spoil the book but I do have to say, it is brilliant with a great appearance of Sidorio.

Enjoy! I did.

P.S. Reader beware, it will make you crave for BLOOD CAPTAIN, the third book released later this year.

Dead Deep is a short story that is set between Demons of the Ocean and Tide of Terror (the first 2 books in the series), it was published for World Book Day and you can easily read the rest of the series without picking up this book. However, if you're a fan of the series like me then it is definitely worth trying to get hold of a copy. In later books in the series several mentions are made about the "lost weekend" that occurred when Connor, Bart & Jez went on shore leave and I've been wanting to find out what happened for a while now. As I've finished reading the rest of the series this was a perfect way to dip back into the world of the Vampirates.

I don't want to go into details of the story as it would be too easy to give spoilers but Dead Deep is an exciting adventure with the three buccaneers and was a great addition to the series. If you've read the other books like I have then you'll recognise a few of the characters who crop up from later books and it answered a few questions I had about their previously unknown history. This is a fun, fast read and definitely recommended to Vampirates fans.

I know that this is just a short story released for World Book Day, but it's a bit of a disappointment.

Firstly, the story only focuses on Connor. It makes little reference to Grace or most of the other characters from the novels and does not entirely stand on its own - many characters from the novels are name dropped but never appear and the ending won't really mean anything to the reader if they're not already familiar with the character of the Pirate Captain from the novels.

As a story, it's also kind of weak. It takes forever to get going and then kind of peters out, leaving the characters with convenient amnesia to ensure that it will never be referenced in the main series.

I think it should also be noted that this book does not tie in with the series continuity very well. Although it sits between the first and second book, there are inconsistencies between the start of this one and the end of the first novel (the sudden appearance of Jez and the situation of Sidorio).

All in all, the story was not all that geared towards newcomers and yet offered nothing new for those who have read the first book.

I missed this when it came out and as a result felt a bit lost when we first meet Moonshine in Vampirates and he seems to know Connor and hate him for no particular reason...it all makes sense now! Yeh!

This was a lovely short story that I devoured in a single sitting, which is handy cos my life is hectic at the moment. I really enjoyed it. It was mythical, fun and had some great laughs along with some heartstopping peril. I love love Justin's work and even though it's been nearly a decade since I first read a book of this, I still love his work.

WAS AWESOME! Just like all the rest of justin sompers book. It would be kinda nice if it had been longer and was a bit sad when kally betrayed them. Still, Vampirates is my best series. Write more books Justin somper! :P
