Aug 20, 2012 Grace rated it it was ok
When this series began I absolutely loved it. The concept was fresh and exciting and the story itself was great with intriguing characters and plot twists. But as the series went on, it became evident that Justin Somper has talent in writing but not in planning. The first few books were so brilliant that I could not help feeling extremely disappointed by the twists in the fifth book (so uncharacteristic of Grace) and, finally, this concluding book.

Rant time: SPOILER WARNING!***

According to the blurb, this book ends "this sequence" of the Vampirates. In other words, this arc is over, but there's a lot (well, at least a few) loose ends left open to possibly continue the series in another arc somewhere down the line.

I'm not entirely sure whether or not I'll be on board for that arc.

I do enjoy the series, overall, but it has some problems. One of them is that this arc has dragged a bit, and many of the books between 3 and now felt a bit bloated with filler. Conversely,

Immortal War is the final book in the Vampirates series. I must admit I felt strange picking up this book having not read any of the other books in the series but it was neither as challenging or as mindboggling an experience as I expected. In fact, reading the last book in this series has opened my eyes as to why it is so popular – it is full of action, entertaining characterisation, deep moral questions and has a writing style which is as comfy as my favourite woolly jumper.

I first decided to read the 1st book in this series on a whim, or probably because at the time I was currently reading an Anthony Horowitz (Alex Rider) novel and spotted his review "I which I had this idea" ridden across the cover or I probably even noticed the book on Amazon BUT for whatever reason I decided to read this fantastic series, and I'm thanking my instinctive impulses.

This fantasy, futuristic series by Justin Somper truly surprised me. Students in my Grade 6 LA class begged me to read it last year, and I cringed internally, as neither vampires nor pirates have ever interested me. However, I tried the first book, since it was enjoyed so much by some of my readers. I was amazed at the cleverness of this author, and at the seamless way in which he moved the characters through their complex development during the series of six books. At the end of the first novel ...more

Holy shit. These books are awful. The only reason I kept reading to book six was because I just could not believe that a series could get that bad.

I was wrong. So very, very wrong.

I actually liked the first two books. They were alright. Twins Connor and Grace set out in a ship and get lost in a storm. Grace is saved by the Vampirates, a group of peaceful Vampires that live on a boat, and Connor becomes a Pirate. Later they find out that they themselves are Vampirates, and the inner turmoil begi
There is nothing more satisfying (or scary!) as picking up the final book in a series you've come to love. You've invested so much time reading the earlier books and the characters are like friends, you need to know what happens to them but you're worried that the book won't live up to your expectations and you're not ready to reach the end of your journey. I'll admit I was nervous picking up Immortal War, how was Justin Somper going to top Empire of Night? I shouldn't have been worried though, ...more

I can remember being absolutely enthralled by these books in the beginning. The set up seemed quite delicious.

I am trying to read 'as a writer' and this series and especially the book itself has definitely taught me how not to write.

I have to agree with some of the other reviews on here - the characters were quite flat and also not much of role models.

Nie wierzę, że to już koniec przygód Connora i Grace. Przez te sześć tomów tyle się wydarzyło. To niesamowite ile razy historia dwóch bliźniąt diametralnie się zmieniała w ciągu jednego roku.

Nie potrafię opisać tego, jak wspaniałą powieścią jest seria "Wampiraci". Mogę powiedzieć tylko, że polecam każdemu kto lubi tajemnice, czasem szokujące zwroty akcji, przygody, no i sympatycznych bohaterów.
Wiem na pewno, że jeszcze powrócę do tego cyklu i to nie raz i nie dwa.!

The favorite characters are back and they all show strengths and flaws. My only problem was the ending. I can actually sense there is another book out of it...even though the author claims this is the final book.

I would prefer to give it 3 1/2 stars but I don't know how to do that. Very engaging novel. Couldn't put it down.

On 6th June 2005, Simon & Schuster published, Demons of the Ocean, the first book in a sequence of books to set the barren landscapes of adolescent male reading alight. In a world of spies and wizards it was a refreshing read. And in the 6 years that have passed, we've seen blood, death, oceans, vampires and pirates aplenty. And now they are set to publish this, the sixth and final book of the sequence, Immortal War.

Noooooo! The final book in the series! I will mourn the end of one of my favourite bunch of characters and one of the most fantastic literary worlds in creation. Having said that, this is one fantastic end to the series and as with all final books I was a little scared about how it would end. Being a Grace/Lorcan shipper I was really hoping for that happy ending. Anyway, here's a brief synopsis for you :-)

I think this book was absolutely fantastic, with a stunning style of writing from Justin Somper and definitely not a disappointment. As the last book of the series, it concludes the story line with little to no plot holes and a fairly large plot twist near the end.

The book starts off well paced, if not slow, and re introduces the characters and current events. After a couple of chapters, I was completely hooked into the book.

Review in portuguese by blog MON PETIT POISON

Apesar de ser uma série muito querida, sei reconhecer que este não foi o melhor livro. Não sei se foi devido a ser o final de uma série de seis livros e a gente sabe que geralmente os finais tendem a ser mais um fechamento da ideia que começou lá atrás do que grandes reviravoltas.

Não digo com isso que foi um livro ruim, tiveram alguns momentos de revelação e coisas que ao longo dos livros anteriores jamais imaginei que teria sido isso que o autor quis

I started this book with trepidation. I loved the first five books in the 'Vampirates' series and knew full well that this was the last full length adventure I'd get to spend with Grace, Connor, Lorcan, and the rest of the Pirate and Vampirate crew. Now that I've finished it, it is with a touch of sadness and a whole lotta love that I write this review. I'm going to keep it short and sweet because I don't want to go into heavy spoiler territory by accident! (It's just *that* good of a series!)

Ever since I picked up the very first book in the Vampirates series I have been throughly enraptured in that world. I live in the US so ever since 2009 I have had the books shipped from the UK just so I wouldn't have to wait the extra 1+ months associated with the book release dates. Today, I recieved Immortal War in the mail and I was a little hesitant to read it honestly.

I was getting crazy from the waiting for this book! I just really love the series and after the last one, i had to read the next one fast.

Twists, action, killing...a lot of killing and blood actually and a few drops of romance and mystery make this book even better than the rest. I don't think something is missing from this book. The blending of young adult with a more darker environment, violence (that how vampires are you know...), magic, kick ass characters, how even small and not that import

Well, a surprising finish to one of my favorite series. I was shall I say this? I was not enthralled with the final installment (or is it???) Somper left the final chapter quite open.
And I am not quite happy with Connor by the end of the series. He hated what he was. What is that subliminally telling young adults? That your heritage is something to be ashamed of? Yes, Connor, you greatly disappointed us all, Grace most especially.

Vampirates #6: Immortal War by Justin Somper.

It was a thrilling and cut-throat journey; embarking on the Vampirates adventure. From the start of the series I have been hook. I couldn't escape if I wanted to. The story that Somper created was too original, too thrilling, and too exceptional not to be part of and completely fall in love with.

The Vampirates saga concludes with this underedited tome in which too many people die with not enough denouement and not enough bad guys die with too much denouement for each one except for the major ones. We endure battle after battle but little is explained. Grace finds a book that only dhampirs can read that explains about a prophecy in which one twin must die so that the war will end. Grace is devastated but understands about the greater sacrifice. She's become a great and powerful healer, a ...more

This book is without any doubt the best book I've read so far in the year of 2011. When I opened my mailbox and saw the brown package from CDON I felt an overwelming joy but at the same time I was worried. Would the book be as good as the others in the series? Would it end in a good or a bad way? Which characters were going to die?
As soon as I could, I opened the package, picked up the book and sat down and started reading it. I was instantly hooked. I couldn't put down the book even though I f

Okay I gave this a three because there were too many loose ends at the end. I was disappointed. Lola still poses a threat and honestly it bugs me that Grace has a child to care for that wasn't mentioned in the last pages. I NEED to know what happens to Hunter as well. He seemed like the best baby of the two yet he is still in a horrible position. Maybe it is the mother in me but I need to know that the baby is safe with the good guys. Also I needed more characters to have a happy ending. I cried ...more

Minor Spoilers ahead.
what happened to this series?? It was original, so exciting with likable characters and an intriguing plot. These last two books were just awful. With the forced attraction of Cheng Li and Lorcan, the dead end plot of the cardinals, the 180 degree change of Obsidian Darke not to mention Connor's weird new super power. The ending was wishy-washy...not everyone got a happy ending but some of the roads taken were forced and not necessary. It's open-ended for the possibility of

Very mixed emotions about the conclusion to the series. While it was interesting to see all of the forces at play in the all out war that we've been leading up to, I feel that there was a significant proportion of this that felt rushed and that a great deal of the paranormal concepts, that had been greatly delivered before now, seemed to fall flat. While I encourage any fan of the series to read it, as at its core, it provides closure and ties up loose ends, but there was perhaps too much that c ...more

“Stuckley drew back his sword with evident satisfaction. "She really is your Achilles' heel, isn't she Furey?"
"No." Lorcan said, preparing his own attack. "Not my Achilles' heel.The love of my life. And I'll do whatever it takes to protect her.”
“Lorcan nodded, "It'ss a beautiful night," he said. "The stars have all come out for you, Darcy." He turned to go, then had a fresh thought. "Oh and Tempest, a word to the wise..."
Grace was busily gathering up the edges of Darcy's train. "Yes?" she said, glancing up at Lorcan. "What is it Furey?"
Lorcan grinned."Just so you know, I've put down good money on you catching the wedding bouquet. I trust you wouldn't let me down!"
as he winked at her, Grace thought his eyes never looked so blue. They were eyes you could never tire from looking at- as deep and constant and infinite as the ocean itself.”
