This book starts off with Connor receiving a note from his father Sidorio (I know! I still can't get over that one!) regarding three gifts that he is presenting to him. Connor is to be the heir to his empire after all Sidorio is King of the Vampirates, or so he claims.
Flashback: Sidorio is standing on the beach holding the head of his decapitated wife but she starts to speak! Sidorio takes her head back to her body while still reeling from the information that his children are alive! Lady Lockwook and Sidorio head off for their honeymoon to discuss world domination.
They decide to invite the twins, Connor and Grace, to stay with them. To give them a chance to know their father and stepmother. Both eventually accept but they go as spies. Connor is given the job to get intel and send it back to the Pirate Federation. Meanwhile, Cheng Li, Jacoby, and Jasmine work on perfecting the weapons to use to destroy the rebel Vampirates.
Grace is spying for the Nocturnals formerly known as the Vampirates but since the Pirate Federation is determined to destroy all Vampirates they wanted to distinguish themselves. Lorcan and Grace are finally in love! But only to be separated to prepare for the war ahead.
Grace finds herself on board her stepmother's ship and being courted by Johnny! Say it isn't so but it is... she kissed him! She dreamed of kissing him. Doesn't she realize he is the bad guy? Oh yes, she does... she feels guilty too! And she should! She is also being feed blood... she just doesn't know it yet. So is Connor.
Speaking of Connor... he feel in love with Jasmine! Who is suppose to be dating Jacoby but during a trip to get weapons that all changed. Bo Yin is a stowaway... wait until her dad finds out what she did!
Another great book and only one more left in the series! Whatever will I do once all the books are done?
