They hear the spirits.They must obey.

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.

Ms. Armstrong’s newest YA book sounds wicked. I like the idea that the main characters are twin girls. Reminds me of my hayday when my favorite shows involved Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen and Tia & Tamera Mowry. I haven’t read any of her adult books but I just ate up both her Darkest Powers and Darkness Rising trilogies so I have high hopes for this book.

  1. I’ve not read a single book by Kelley Armstrong though I own at least two! Also, I’m shamefaced again because I’ve not read the synopsis for this before now. And it sounds awesome.

    I seriously LOVED the Olsen twins and Tia and Tamera!!! Oh my gosh.

    My WoW!

    1. What?! You have two of her books and you’ve not read them yet? That’s so sad; you’re missing out. I loved her YA books so far.

      Right? I miss the days with those kind of fun shows. I mentioned Tia and Tamera to a younger kid, and they had no idea who I was talking about.

  2. I do enjoy me some Kelley Armstrong. This one sounds great!


    1. Hopefully you’ll check it out when it comes out then. 😀

  3. This has been in a lot of most-anticipated-books lists I’ve seen around. That book summary definitely sounds intriguing. I hope you’ll enjoy reading this one when it comes out. Thanks for sharing.

    Here’s My WoW pick 🙂

    1. I’m hoping it deserves the hype, and with her track record I think it will. She’s one of those authors who I’m almost always guaranteed to enjoy.

  4. Ahh! I didn’t know Kelley Armstrong was going to have a new YA book out! I really enjoyed The Darkest Powers books, but not so much with the Darkness Rising ones. 🙁 I hope I love this one–it sounds badass, lol! Lovely pick, Kim! <3

    1. Yes~ After the end of her other two trilogies, I was feeling bereft. So it was super exciting to find out she was starting a new YA series. Thanks!

  5. I’ve been seeing this one around. Not too interested in the theme, though. Hope you enjoy it once out!
    Here’s my Wednesday post.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!
    Mary @ Buried Under Romance

    1. I certainly hope so! There’s potentially for it to be dreadfully mediocre, but I’m hoping the author steps up to the plate and makes it awesome. 😀

  13. I haven’t read any of her books, but I do think this sounds really interesting even though it’s not my usual genre. I hope we both love it. Great pick!

      Thanks for stopping by my WoW. 🙂

  15. I haven’t read anything by Kelly Armstrong yet but am hoping to start with this one! Hope you enjoy it when you get it! 🙂

    1. Thanks! The author tends to deliver, so I’m trusting she for this book as well. 🙂

  17. I actually just read and reviewed this one (HERE)! You might be surprised by my rating… or not! I hope you love the book, Cyn 🙂

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

    1. Ohhh, you lucky duck! You got an eARC of it. I’m suitably jealous as I still have some time to wait before I can read it. But I’m even more excited now, after reading your review! 😀

      Thanks for stopping by.

      Kim @ Book Munchies

  18. I haven’t read anything by this author before. I’ve seen this book around a lot lately though, seems like it’s going to be awesome! 🙂

    1. Past experience with the author assures me it will be awesome, but you never know… ! Haha, I’m certainly hopeful that it’ll be and I’m still anticipating it nonetheless.

  19. I’ve had this one for awhile but I’m super hesitant to read it. I didn’t realize it was so heavy on fantasy elements until a couple weeks ago. I’m going to at least give it a try though, and hopefully be sucked in. 🙂

    1. Now that I’m thinking about it, I think most (if not all) of Kelly Armstrong’s books are fantasy. Lol. But yes! Hopefully you enjoy it. 🙂

  20. I love Kelley Armstrong’s YA series!! This one looks like it’s going to be good, too—though to top her other two series would be a challenge!
