Grace and Connor have discovered their heritage, and are sent to spy on Sidorio and Lola. What seemed simple and straightforward becomes anything but as they are covertly fed blood and showered with affection by both vampirate captains.
More emotional and somewhat darker than the previous novels, as Grace is essentially tackling issues of addiction.

More changes are in store in this ever-evolving and always suspenseful series. This is the 5th installment in the Vampirates series and the darkest by far. I have to admit that I didn't care for the direction Somper has taken the series, with Sidorio revealed to be the twins' father. At times, all seems hopeless, sad, and completely depressing. But by the climactic ending, I saw the turn the series is taking; and I'm on board to see where the story goes next. Full of swashbuckling excitement and mayhem, the Vampirates are back and as bloody as ever. Laced with plenty of dark humor and silliness to lighten the mood, the Vampirates always seem to be the most enjoyable characters to read, even if they are ruthless killers. This series continues to be one of my favorites. Fans of vampires and pirates, both young and old should not miss this extraordinary series.
Empire of Night is mainly about Grace and Connor spying on the main villian, Sidorio, by living on his ships. Since Sidorio is actually their father, the twins do lose focus at times. Grace and Connor learn more about their family and themselves and what it means to be a dhampir. Along the way, Connor and Grace both make some bad decisions and essentially lose who they are, but they find their way back in the end. Connor finally excepts who he is to some point, but he still does not like it.
In Empire of Night, we get to know Sidorio more, and he has definitely changed! I did not find him as evil as he used to be. He easily accepts Grace and Connor as his own and takes them under his wing as his heirs. He obviously cares for his children.
I definitely enjoyed this book. There was plenty of pirate action with sword fighting, of course! The ending was completely unexpected. I am curious where Somper is going to take it. This series is a fun, thrilling ride, and I am looking forward to the next book!
