Teaser Tuesdays - The Vampirates Series

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!  Just do the following:

* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:
My teaser this week is a shanty that is repeated throughout the Vampirates series by Justin Somper

"I'll tell you a tale of Vampirates,
A tale as old as true.
Yea, I'll sing you a song of an ancient ship,
And it's mighty fearsome crew.
Yea, I'll sing you a song of an ancient ship
That sales the oceans blue...
That haunts the oceans blue

They say that the captain, he wears a veil
So as to curtail your fright
At his death-pale skin
And his lifeless eyes
And his teeth as sharp as night.
Oh, they say that the captain, he wears a veil
And his eyes never see the light."

Just to remind you, I'm on holiday this week. I'm taking my laptop with me but I have a feeling I'm not going to get signal so I probably won't get back online until I get home. I will reply to any comments & return the visit but it might not be until after Easter when I'm back :o)
