Awry by Chelsea Fine (The Archers of Avalon #2)

Sometimes love is meant to be. But sometimes love…is the death of you….

Seventeen-year-old Scarlet has just died. Only, dying isn’t unusual for a girl under a centuries old curse that left her semi-immortal.

This time, though, she comes back to her current life instead of awaking in a new one, and she realizes the curse is changing. Together with the immortal Archer brothers, Scarlet must piece together her life and try to break the curse before her impending death comes again. From Goodreads.

Just when I didn’t think the story could get any better, it did. Chelsea Fine managed to make something unbelievable to completely believable. I loved how in between chapters, the older original story was told. How Scarlet, Tristan, and Gabriel all met, how Gabriel and Scarlet became engaged and most importantly how they all got cursed.

The ending to Anew had me so upset so when Awry started I was prepared to be upset again, of course when the beginning was completely different then I thought it was going to be, I was ecstatic. I still can’t get enough of the love triangle but it just keeps getting more and more tangled now. I loved how Heather and Scarlet’s friendship grew more because she finally tells her everything. Most people would think she is crazy but not Heather, she supports her completely. In every decision that she made.

There were so many secrets that came out in the book, especially about Raven and Laura, Scarlet’s guardian. I loved every page in this book, not a single one was I even slightly bored in. I can’t wait for the 3rd book to come out.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

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.
