About Book I: The Sinking World

After the tragic events of what has become known as The Day of Destruction – a day when they were intended to die along with their families – Charlie, Sadie, Liu, Raquel and Ingela find themselves on the high seas all alone. While a group of girls living on their own isn’t the norm in the 1780s, the Storm Sisters are starting to realize that making the impossible possible is what they do best.

The girls strive to maintain their legacy as part of a covert and ancient organization known as The Storm. Their primary mission, however, is to survive so that they can find out what really happened to their parents. Amidst pirates, hurricanes and other hidden enemies, this is not an easy task.

About Book II: The Frozen Seas

The girls continue their quest toward the frozen seas of the North. New information is revealed as the Storm Sisters find out shocking secrets about their past. But will the girls be able to survive on their own? And who are their real enemies?
