Format: Paperback
Twins are rare and when they are born they usually become Keeper and Seeker. The Keepers job is to keep the spirits from entering the village and the Seekers job is to go into the Forest Of The Dead and put the spirits to rest. Moira is the Keeper and Ashyn is the Seeker.

Every year the Seeker has to go into the Forest to quiet the spirits and this year is Ashyns first year doing it by herself. At the start everything goes as planned but when her companions start disappearing things start to go wrong. In the forest Ashyn meets Ranon, a criminal sent to die there. He may be her only hope of getting out alive.

OK, this was just amazing!!! From the very first page this book had me hooked.

Moira was a kick ass character. She was strong, stubborn, an amazing fighter and could throw a knife a hairs breath away from you. She was fierce and loyal but also kind and always looked out for her sister. Ahsyn on the other hand is quite and meek. In other words the total opposite of Moira. I loved how different both were, even though they are twins, but yet they make a complete whole. They each make the best of each other and are fiercely loyal to each other.

I loved both Gavril and Ranon. Gavril is surly and strong but you know deep down he has feelings for Moira. Ranon is more open with his feelings for Ashyn and I loved seeing both friendships progress. Moira is more practical in her approach to romance, she sees it more logically. To her a kiss is just a kiss and it doesn't have to lead to anything, whereas Ashyn is a romantic at heart.

The whole lore of Sea Of Shadows was unique and fascinating. The Seeker and Keepers have animals bonded to them that help them on their journeys.

Format: Paperback
Kelley Armstrong is best known for her urban fantasy books -- for adults, teens and even children (if you count her books with Melissa Marr).

But as far as I know, "Sea of Shadows" is the very first high fantasy Armstrong has written. And it's not a half-bad way to start her new Age of Legends series -- she creates a fantasy world filled with dark magic, monsters and blood, countered by a pair of tough young girls who are equally adept with knives and magic. The main flaw? At times I could have used a lot more elaboration.

Moria is the Keeper who protects the village from hostile spirits, while her twin sister Ashyn is the Seeker who finds the dead and buries them before they can become troublesome. Now that they are sixteen years old, they lead the villagers on a specific day when the veil between the living and the dead is thinnest. Also, they each have a supernatural animal.

But then the village is invaded and destroyed -- the children are kidnapped, the men are turned into monstrous shadow-stalkers, and the women are slain. Even worse, the sisters are unable to stop it. Teaming up with stoic warrior Gavril and the mysterious Ronan, Ashyn and Moria set out on separate quests to right what has gone wrong -- and discover an enemy raising a nightmarish shadow army.

From the very beginning, Armstrong sets "Sea of Shadows" in a world that feels incredibly dangerous. There is no pretty little village set apart from the danger of the outside world... oh no, no, the characters live next door to a forest of madness, disease and death. There's graphic gore, lots of blood, demon-things that turn you into a grotesque cannibal, more dead bodies than a World War I cemetery, and "death worms" that can spit acid at you.

Moria and Ashyn are the Keeper and the Seeker of the Forest of the Dead. Criminals get sent into the Forest and if they survive, they're told they get to be placed back in society - no one ever survives. The Seeker and the Keeper are tasked with dealing with the souls of the dead so they don't become evil spirits. This is Ashyn's first solo journey as the Seeker and it doesn't go to plan - turns out there's more in the forest than the souls of the dead. After their town gets attacked, Ashyn and Moria are separated and in finding one another discover something is very wrong.

With Kelley's Otherworld series at an end, she's introducing some new stuff. No new adult series as yet but this is her new YA/New Adult series (I don't know the difference between the two - genres aren't my strong point). Moria and Ashyn are both very different and likeable in their own ways.

Moria is strong and kick ass, she's not afraid to stand her ground and will fight anything to protect her family and her town. Ashyn is quiet and calm, the complete opposite of Moria and that's why they work so well together. They counter each other and are better for it.

I love Kelley's writing as anyone who has read my reviews before will know but sadly this one fell a bit short with me, I still liked it and will continue with the series but it was quite slow going and hard to pick up once it was put down - which is very unlike all Kelley books for me. I usually find them unputdownable. I would still recommend this to any YA Fantasy fans but if you're a Kelley fan it is quite unlike her other books so don't go into this expecting another Darkest Powers or Darkness Rising.
