Possibly a diary.

[Huge implied spoiler for Orca]

Which ties into the "Dzur Mountain is (or contains) a storage device" 
theory.  Which might be another explanation for that strange time-gap
thing, by the way - Kiera's diary is kept separate from Sethra's
diary.  I have the notion that after leaving Stony's, Sethra went and
did something based on what Kiera found out (that took nearly a full
day [1])... but that goes in Sethra's storage area.

[1] Perhaps she went and notified the Lords of Judgment about the
dangerous financial crisis?  Perhaps the gods can bail out the Bank of
the Empire.  :-)
