From number-one New York Times best-selling author Kelley Armstrong comes a captivating new series that blends elements of fantasy and horror with the pulse-pounding action and romance that have earned her a devoted following worldwide.
Worth the time to listen, but not one of Kelley Armstrong's best works of fiction. I guess she's spoiled me with her other series.

What would have made Sea of Shadows better?
A different story line? The characters were so flat and uninteresting, I had zero attachment to anyone even three hours in.
Has Sea of Shadows turned you off from other books in this genre?
It might have turned me off of epic YA, hard to tell just yet.
What three words best describe Jennifer Ikeda’s voice?
Slow, dull, bored- with that being said I normally really enjoy her.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
No- and I have loved all of This authors other YA books.
Any additional comments?
I normally finish books, it's a matter of pride, even if I don't thoroughly enjoy them. I tried so many times with this book and finally just gave up. Thank you Kelley Armstromg for giving me so many hours of enjoyment with your other work, this one is just not for me. I will be on the look out in the future for other stories, but won't continue on with this one.

Don't do it. Wish I hadn't! Doesn't sound like a Kelley Armstrong book! Much too juvenile for one of hers.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
It didnt hook me in and too slow, poor character development. got boarded...The narrators voice was so,monotone it put me to sleep. this book was noy like anythin else from Kelley .
It is hard to put my finger on this one exactly, as I have been a voracious reader of all of her previous works. But the characters in the story and the plot line itself just never really gelled together, which I found somewhat surprising and really disappointing. You can still tell that it is her style of writing, which I have always really loved, it's just more that some of the important points of a story and a book as a whole didn't come together this time.
I've listened to several books read by this performer- this will probably be my last. Even the most interesting book becomes boring - very monotonous and I end up falling asleep.
Sea of Shadows is a wonderful start to a new series. Evoking a world similar to medieval Japan, Armstrong brings new monsters and shadows to her fans. I am looking forward to the next installation.
It was a bit awkward and stuttering at the start, but about 2 chapters in she had my full attention! Great story, going to start the 2nd book now! haha
I'm generally a fan of Kelley Armstrong, and this seemed like it was going to be perfect. Twin sisters, the two chosen to fight the monsters an undead.
Somehow, it just didn't work for me.
