This is an amazing read, for all ages not just children. And not just this book but the whole series of books. I love the suspense, it makes you want to read on.. And on. It's very exciting with all the adventure and sword fights. If you are a fan of vampirates don't hesitate to buy them all :) you won't be disappointed.

HASH(0x872730d8) out of 5 stars Big Changes 27 Sept. 2010
By SciFiChick - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The Tempest twins Connor and Grace are back and on their deadliest mission yet. When Sidorio learns that he is their blood father, Both Connor and Grace are recruited as spies when the self-proclaimed Vampirate king invites them to his ship. Sidorio plans on making the twins feel at home and exploiting their thirst for blood, turning them to his side of an oncoming war.

More changes are in store in this ever-evolving and always suspenseful series. This is the 5th installment in the Vampirates series and the darkest by far. I have to admit that I didn't care for the direction Somper has taken the series, with Sidorio revealed to be the twins' father. At times, all seems hopeless, sad, and completely depressing. But by the climactic ending, I saw the turn the series is taking; and I'm on board to see where the story goes next. Full of swashbuckling excitement and mayhem, the Vampirates are back and as bloody as ever. Laced with plenty of dark humor and silliness to lighten the mood, the Vampirates always seem to be the most enjoyable characters to read, even if they are ruthless killers. This series continues to be one of my favorites. Fans of vampires and pirates, both young and old should not miss this extraordinary series.

HASH(0x8727312c) out of 5 stars A Fun and Thrilling Adventure! 23 Jan. 2011
By Elizabeth - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Empire of Night is an exciting installment in the Vampirates series. After reading the fourth book, Black Heart, many months ago, it was fun to get back into the world of Vampirates. This one does seem to be darker than the previous books with more deaths and difficult life choices to make.

Empire of Night is mainly about Grace and Connor spying on the main villian, Sidorio, by living on his ships. Since Sidorio is actually their father, the twins do lose focus at times. Grace and Connor learn more about their family and themselves and what it means to be a dhampir. Along the way, Connor and Grace both make some bad decisions and essentially lose who they are, but they find their way back in the end. Connor finally excepts who he is to some point, but he still does not like it.

In Empire of Night, we get to know Sidorio more, and he has definitely changed! I did not find him as evil as he used to be. He easily accepts Grace and Connor as his own and takes them under his wing as his heirs. He obviously cares for his children.

I definitely enjoyed this book. There was plenty of pirate action with sword fighting, of course! The ending was completely unexpected. I am curious where Somper is going to take it. This series is a fun, thrilling ride, and I am looking forward to the next book!

wow, what a great book. i think the suspense building up to the main events is good for keeping the readers on their toes, always waiting for whatever monumental bombshell of truth will be dropped on the twins next. this book is a great read. i totally recommend it to all readers, whether they be fans of the series or people new to the concept of the vampirates.

Am buying this series for me 8 year old great niece. Her mom, and sometimes the whole family, sit together and the 8 year old reads them. This series finally got her interested in reading. She was very excited when she heard this one was due out soon and would be sent right to her front door. The book was in excellant condition and arrived before she was able to drive her parents crazy anticipating it.
HASH(0x87273c54) out of 5 stars whats better than a vampire book and a pirate book? One about both!!! 5 Jun. 2014
By Marilda - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An amazing series to leave to leave you at the edge of your seat. Now to some it may seem ridiculous to not know there are already books about vampires and books about pirates but one about mix of both may sound lame but I gave it a shot and it was anything but lame. It is very mysterious, lovely twist, a little love interest, and oh the chaos. Love it!!! ^~^
