Storm Sisters offers a feminine twist on the traditional pirate story: Spice Girls meets Pirates of the Caribbean!

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.

“A refreshing combination of strong girls with big hearts, action, humor, romance and political intrigue across the seven seas, Storm Sisters had us hooked from the first page. Long live the Pirettes!”
– Glenn Tavennec, Éditions Robert Laffont, Publisher of the Collection “R” imprint

“I have a strong feeling that Mintie Das and the Storm Sisters have just embarked on a great adventure, and Tammi is excited to be part of this journey. A historical setting paired with five modern, persistent and gutsy girls is a combination that can´t go wrong. In this series, Spice Girls meets Pirates of Caribbean. Full sail ahead!”
– Saara Tiuraniemi, Publisher, Tammi
