The first book of a bold and hugely anticipated new YA trilogy by the phenomenal Kelley Armstrong.
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.

“[Sea of Shadows] shows all the signs of an amazing novel . . . a new favourite.”
“Armstrong . . . smoothly switches from her customary modern paranormal setting to a high-fantasy adventure, but she still favors relationship drama and reversals of fortune. Strong female protagonists make this trilogy opener a standout, if not a stand-alone read.”
“A prolific paranormal and urban fantasy author, Armstrong’s dark and violent new Age of Legends series will again intrigue and delight young adult readers looking for more than vampires and wizards. . . . Imaginative, surprising, and deliciously creepy, Sea of Shadows is horror at its finest—suggesting, but never fully depicting, the menace that lies just beneath the surface.”
