Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Twins, Connor and Grace, never dreamed that there was any truth to the Vampirate shanty their father sang to them before he died, but that was before the two were shipwrecked and separated from each other. For Connor, who is taken aboard a pirate ship, there's the chance to learn to swordfight, but for Grace, aboard a mysterious ship of vampire pirates, the danger is great. What will it take for them to find each other?<br> <br> "Totally original...I wish I'd had this idea." -Anthony Horowitz

Horn Book Review

When their father dies, twins Grace and Connor are left penniless. Determined to avoid the orphanage, they run away to sea and are soon taken aboard two pirate ships. Unfortunately, Grace falls in with a crew of bloodthirsty Vampirates. The swift ending in this story set in 2505 leaves several loose ends, which hint at a sequel but may leave readers dissatisfied.
