Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong
They hear the spirits.They must obey.
In the Forest of the Dead, where the empire's worst criminals are exiled, twin sisters Moria and Ashyn are charged with a dangerous task. For they are the Keeper and the Seeker, and each year they must quiet the enraged souls of the damned.
Only this year, the souls will not be quieted.
Ambushed and separated by an ancient evil, the sisters' journey to find each other sends them far from the only home they've ever known. Accompanied by a stubborn imperial guard and a dashing condemned thief, the girls cross a once-empty wasteland, now filled with reawakened monsters of legend, as they travel to warn the emperor. But a terrible secret awaits them at court--one that will alter the balance of their world forever.
I am not Ms. Armstrong's #1 FAN, but I do really love her writing style and the way she makes reading her book so addictive. I am extremely excited for this one, the start of her next YA series, and hope that it exceeds my expectations!
