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.
Everything can be made better with a good book or some relaxing knits. 😀 Find me on IG @kimberlyh12 or on Twitter @enervated.
