Today is my stop – and the very first stop – on the Storm Sisters blog tour! I am here to introduce you to one of the five really unique and diverse characters that reside in this book.
So without further ado…
AGE: 17 ROOTS: AMERICAN/ENGLISH EXPERTISE: SWORDS
Personality Traits: Fierce, loyal, quick-tempered and sometimes too quick with her sword.
Distinctive Physical Traits: Wild ginger locks, cool blue eyes, tall and lanky with white skin that never seems to soak up the sun.
Charlie can outfox the most cunning of pirates and the most ruthless of men. And if that doesn’t work, she’ll unleash a set of sword skills that are surely to cut the biggest enemies down to size (literally).
She’s fiercely protective of the other girls and isn’t afraid to match her sword skills against the most dangerous of enemies, on land or sea. For the girls, as long as Charlie is around, they feel safe. As the oldest of the group, she’s the natural leader but her overbearing attitude sometimes gets the best of her.
While Charlie loves her sisters unconditionally, she often cuts herself off emotionally. Perhaps because of her mother’s abandonment, her early heartbreak with Taye or because her father is a bit of a cold fish himself, Charlie sees emotions as avoidable complications. In a world naturally full of chaos, Charlie seeks order, rationale and method. While her Spock like cool makes her an expert swordsman and fighter, she struggles to keep her ferocious temper at bay.
She disdains fashion, make-up and anything else that belongs to the realm of “proper ladies,” often wearing breeches or a shirt with a hole or stain in them. She will, however, don a dress and make-up (“But no lipstick or I’ll cut you!”) for the sake of a mission.

The girls are in great danger from sinister foes, and have created a false identity as a fierce group of pirates. As a vengeful father threatens Liu, the girls must head into uncharted waters. But how long will their disguise keep them from harm? And is it such a good idea to join forces with a group of rebellious boys from their past?
