From Amazon:

Twin sisters Moria and Ashyn were marked at birth to become the Keeper and the Seeker of Edgewood, beginning with their sixteenth birthday. Trained in fighting and in the secret rites of the spirits, they lead an annual trip into the Forest of the Dead. There, the veil between the living world and the beyond is thinnest, and the girls pay respect to the spirits who have passed. But this year, their trip goes dreadfully wrong.

My Thoughts:

I truly liked the idea...however, I am not a huge fantasy fan. I am a huge Kelley Armstrong fan. It was in the long-haul that I felt Sea of Shadows started to flounder. The majority of the plot was spilled in the first 1/3 leaving a big chunk of boring, then a rather forced conclusion which while there were several twists and turns they didn't fit well with the beginning of the novel. In summary Sea of Shadows feels a little like a uncomfortable attempt to create a Game of Thrones level epic for young adults. Unfortunately the finished product lacks the intrigue of plot or character to carry the book. I doubt I will read any more of the series but those that love Fantasy genre will more than likely love it. ( )

OKAY so this book was AMAZING except I didn't like that she called the monster/creature things death worm and thunder hawk I mean you could have been just a bit more creative there...

And OMG I freaking loved Gavril and then when the big reveal happened at the end of the book I was so conflicted because Garvil was one of my favourite characters and I should hate him but I don't and ugh I don't know....

↑↑↑↑↑This is basically my reaction to Garvil throughout the entire book.↑↑↑↑↑ ( )

This was excellent. I did think that there was a bit too much action and not enough plot (it was one actions scene after another back to back to back), but overall it was very very good. Ashyn and Moria were well defined twins, something that is not always done with finesse. ( )

Moria and Ashyn live at the edges of the Forest of the Dead. Each year the worst criminals are exiled into the forest to perish. Their souls never rest quietly so as “the Seeker” and “the Keeper” for their village Moria and Ashyn are tasked to find those souls and quiet their unrest by bringing them peace. Usually it’s done successfully, but this year something sinister cannot be quieted. Things of stories and legends are being brought to life and their entire village is destroyed. Separated in their quest to find out what really happened to their home, they discover that one of the exiled may not have perished in exile and could be seeking revenge.

This is the first book in Ms. Armstrong’s latest YA trilogy. Ms. Armstrong never ceases to amaze me with her imagination for settings, characters and other-wordly creations. I feel because of some of the subject matter this book would definitely fall into the higher-end of the YA bracket, but was still a quick read. I enjoyed it.
