Vampirates by Justin Somper
Twins Connor and Grace Tempest have lived with their father in a lighthouse and have heard a song about the vampirates of the ocean all their lives. When their father dies the twins run away to the sea and are separated by a storm. Connor ends up on a pirate ship and believes that Grace has died in the storm. Connor makes a life for himself on the ship but begins to sense that Grace is still alive. She is, but is being held on the vampirate ship. She is being protected by the captain but other vampirates are not as kind and she finds her life in constant danger, especially after she witnesses their feeding procedure. Connor convinces his ship to go after Grace in the first book of a series.
