The Islands of the Dead is the Sea Folk name of the Seanchan continent.

The Sea Folk refuse to cross the Aryth Ocean and only refer to what lies on the other side as the Islands of the Dead, "from which no ship returns." One known reference exists to "lands under the Shadow, beyond the setting sun, beyond the Aryth Ocean, where the Armies of Night reign."[1]
