The pirate sisters are back − in sub-zero temperatures! Old grudges and new enemies emerge as the girls continue the quest to track down their families. Their adventure takes them to the frigid world of a Scandinavian royal court, where a daughter is to meet the mother who abandoned her years ago. When Tristan, a dazzling royal officer, arrives on the
scene, emotions come to the surface and hearts are broken. And how will the Storm Sisters reach the place all clues seem to lead: a forbidden land of ice in the deepest, darkest part of the Arctic Ocean?

Manuscript available in Fall 2016
When enemies tear the group apart, Charlie, Liu, Taye and Axel need to hunt down the slave ship on which Sadie, Raquel and Ingela are imprisoned. Their chase leads them to the heart of the American Revolutionary War. Suddenly, nothing is what it seems and the girls find themselves trapped in a web of deception and lies. As Charlie and Liu search for a hidden enemy, secrets buried for decades float to the surface and threaten to drown them all.

Praise:
‘High action pirate adventure with a female twist’
– The GuardianSS kannet

They (Storm Sisters) won’t let anyone bring them down, instead they fight for equality regardless to skin color or gender. The author, Mintie Das, has lived in several countries and she calls the series her love letter to the Finns that she describes as odd, crazy and awesome.
– Demi Magazine, Finland 

The Sinking World received great media coverage and it was one of the 11 entries selected for Books at Berlinale 2015, an annual event that introduces film producers to new literary works with strong potential for the big screen.
