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.
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. From Goodreads.
Kelley Armstrong is one of my favourite authors and though this is not her Women of the Otherworld series, it is a brilliant fantasy book. It has it all, a dark story, commitment, loyalty, betrayal and creatures that should not exist. I am looking forward to the next instalment, hopefully in April.
