Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The weekly event is meant to showcase eagerly anticipated upcoming releases…and to spread the word! This week I’m excited about:

Sea of ShadowsTitle: Sea of Shadows (Age of Legends #1)

Author: Kelley Armstrong

Publisher: HarperTeen

Anticipated Publication Date: April 8th, 2014


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.

I love everything by Kelley Armstrong – she is an urban fantasy genius and deserves every success she has had. At this point she’s among my top 3 favourite authors. I particularly love her YA novels, so this new series has skyrocketed to the #1 slot on my wishlist. Plus she’s Canadian!
