Description

Vampirates is a colorful extravaganza with a wildly eccentric cast and lashings of swashbuckling adventure, punctuated with horror and old-school romance. Conor and Grace are twins, recently orphaned after their widowed father's death. Rather than being adopted by the town's busy-bodies, they decide to set sail for new pastures in their father's last single possession, his sailing boat. But a vicious storm sees their boat capsize and the twins are separated. Two mysterious ships sail to their rescue - each picking up one twin before disappearing into the mist. Conor wakes to find himself on a pirate ship and is soon being trained up with a cutlass. Meanwhile Grace finds herself locked in a darkened room, as the vampirates wait for night to fall and their feasting to begin...Determined to find each other, yet intrigued by their new shipmates, the twins are about to embark on the biggest adventure of their life.

Professional reviews

"Despite the best efforts of narrator Daniel Philpott and the great production values of Recorded Books, this is a story that has trouble overcoming its many jumbled subjects and glaring plot holes. Twins Connor and Grace, orphans determined to escape foster parents they dislike, steal a boat that promptly breaks up in a storm at sea. Connor is rescued by regular old pirates, Grace by "vampirates." If you can get past the confusing plot and the seeming endless unanswered questions it raises, the narration is quite good. Philpott gives it his best, with plenty of emotion, great accents that allow you to easily differentiate characters, and a convincing pirate growl. D.G. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
