The Vampirates series is good. I wish I could have gotten more excited but the second of the series Tide of Terror was not as good as the first. I was really hoping for something more, not quite sure what, but it seemed to be lacking the excitement of the first book. Perhaps, because the characters spent so much time at the Vampire Academy that I felt that the story was not moving as quickly as the first. The character that intrigues me the most is the captain of the Vampariate ship. He seems to know a lot more about the orphans and perhaps has a connection to their dad? Um, makes me wonder and curious. Am I giving up on the series? Nope. I am taking a break for a moment and reading other books. Which I will be discussing in other blogs. Long story short, I am still interested in what Conner and Grace are up to, just that I am taking a breather before jumping into the series again. If there are any favorites out there of vampire stories, drop me a line!
