Sea of Shadows is the first book in Kelley Armstrong’s newest YA series and besides having all the otherworldly elements we love in a fantasy: sorcery, spirit animals, possessed corpses, etc., it stars two sisters, Ashyn and Moria, who are about as badass as siblings come – so much so that we wanted to go back and revisit our other favorite sisters in literature.
Addie and Eva
These sisters are as close as it gets when it comes to sisters…they share the same body.
Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy
These young ladies taught us that a crowded house means always having someone to hang out with, and even if that someone throws the cherished manuscript you’ve been working on into the fire, everything can turn alright in the end because you’re sisters.
Annie & Fia
Who better to keep your secrets than your sister? Especially the ones that can get you killed, like being able to see the future or having flawless instincts.

Chloe and Ruby
There’s nothing like finding a corpse in a river and a deeply suppressed secret to teach us about the complexity of sisterhood.

Having a sister means having someone to share your favorite activities with, such as going on an uncontrollable murder bender!
