Waiting on Wednesday (41)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. So here's a thing I'm looking forward to: Sea of Shadows, by Kelley Armstrong (HarperCollins, 8 April 2014).

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.

Cover and description from Fantastic Fiction.

I've never read anything by Kelley Armstrong, though I have a couple of friends who have recommended her to me. This may be the first one I pick up; the description just appeals to me. Sisters, check; monsters, check; romantic interest, check. Should be good!
