Wishlist Thursday[50]: Sea of Shadows (Age of Legends, #1) by Kelley Armstrong

Sea of Shadows (Age of Legends, #1) by Kelley Armstrong

Genre: YA Fantasy

Publisher: HarperCollins

Release Date: April 8th, 2014

Goodreads Synopsis:

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’ve heard some iffy stuff, but I’m optimistic. I really enjoyed Armstrong’s previous YA books, and liked what I read of her adult stuff (although I’m way behind). This doesn’t quite sound like it’s in my area of interest, and much more high fantasy than I normally go for, but it still sounds interesting, and I’m giving Armstrong the benefit of the doubt. I’m looking forward to picking this up, and hoping that it’s good.
Also, for the longest time, I wasn't even sure if this was YA (I'm still kind of not, maybe?). The synopsis doesn't hint at their age, and the cover looks more adult than YA. I like the cover, it's very pretty and intriguing and not-embarrassing, but still.

What are you looking forward to reading?
