Vampirates: Empire of Night

Fuelled by grief and the thirst for revenge, Sidorio vows to become king of the Vampirates, and build a new empire of terror on the seas. But he faces opposition from both the Pirate Federation, including Vampirate Assassin Cheng Li, and the Nocturnals – the more benign Vampirate order led by Mosh Zu and Lorcan Furey. Both the Pirates and the Nocturnals are ready to raise their game in response to the new and urgent threat from Sidorio and his renegades. Twins Grace and Connor Tempest, still ricocheting from the recent discovery of their true parentage and its explosive implications, are thrust deep into the heart of the conflict. But as old foes and allies are thrown together in unexpected ways and the stakes rise higher than ever before, Grace and Connor find their alliances shifting in ways no-one could have foreseen…
