Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we have the opportunity to let others know about books that we are eagerly waiting for.
Title: Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong
Published by: HarperTeen
Release date: April 2014
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.
Why I want to read it: I've enjoyed Armstrong's Darkest Powers and Darkness Rising series and this book sounds different, but just as good. I don't know if this is the final cover, but I like the forrest in the background, the contrast of light, dark and the red symbol.
What are you waiting for this week?
