Sea of Shadows, by Kelley Armstrong
Teen Reviewer: Grace Anne Pedrino
Twin sisters Moria and Ashyn are the Keeper and Seeker of their small village, Edgewood. The Keeper and Seeker's job is to keep quiet the souls of the Damned - the dead people's souls.
But, on their mission to do so, they are separated and abandoned in a wasteland that is no longer empty. As they journey back together they experience many hardships, such as betrayals and abandonment. But even those tragedies are no match for the brewing war.
The Sea of Shadows was an extraordinary book. It was written wonderfully and with care. It made me feel as though I was right with the characters all along. It was an amazing book. I literally could NOT put it down. The characters were very realistic. They even had realistic reactions. Even the minor characters had realistic reactions. Even so, the ending made you need the next book, it was so good. BUT, I personally could have gone without the cliffhanger ending. Regardless, it was a great book. 5 stars.
