"Tide of Terror" continues the quest for twins Connor and Grace Tempest continue their adventures... they start aboard The Diablo and move to the venerated (or loathed... if you're Captain Wraithe) Pirate Academy. There are some odd character developments with Grace, but without these developments, I'd have been disappointed at not seeing the Vampirates at all! Sidorio also plays a key role in this novel as the plot develops further.
I really enjoy these vampirate books... except for the whole cliff-hanger endings. This one is even more exciting than the first. The Tide of Terror really doesn't start 'till the climax of this novel, but things are building up for a big bang at the end! I look forward to the next novel about swashbuckling blood suckers! =D
