Anew by Chelsea Fine (The Archers of Avalon #1)
Two years ago, Scarlet awoke in the forest alone, afraid, and unable to remember anything. Lost and confused, her life was a mystery…until she met a boy with a familiar voice.
Gabriel Archer has a voice from her past, and Scarlet’s determined to remember why. She immerses herself in his life only to discover he has a brother he’s kept hidden from her: Tristan Archer.
Upon meeting Tristan, Scarlet’s world becomes even more muddled. While she’s instinctively drawn to Gabriel, she’s impossibly drawn to Tristan–and confused out of her mind. As she tries to piece together her history Scarlet realizes her past…might just be the death of her. From Goodreads.
Amnesia, love, curses and immortality all wrapped into one book? Awesome. I loved how feisty Scarlet was and how even though she couldn’t remember her past at all; she gets a best friend in Avalon that is amazing. She makes sure that Scarlet is never a total fashion disaster and she is willing to stick by her when her boyfriend Gabriel is thought to be doing something shady.
Of course it was not Gabriel but it was Tristan, his twin. I don’t want to give away too much but this book was the first in the trilogy and it doesn’t disappoint. I loved how Scarlet wasn’t willing to just sit around and do nothing when she knew that she could find a way out of the curse. I like how Gabriel tries so hard to be what Scarlet wants and needs but with Tristan in the background it is hard for him.
I can’t possibly see how this love triangle will work out but you never know Chelsea is an amazing writer so I am sure there will be some twists and turns in the last book of the series that will make (hopefully) everything work out. I am sure not everyone will get a happy ending but you never know. Maybe they will. I hope they all do at least.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
