Anew: 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.
Awry: 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
Avow:Scarlet remembers. Everything. Her past lives, Tristan, Gabriel, Nate: she remembers it all—including how to get to the Fountain of Youth. But time is running out. Heather and Gabriel have been kidnapped by Raven, while the curse that has plagued Scarlet and Tristan for centuries has shifted, putting the star-crossed lovers in more danger than ever before. Water from the Fountain of Youth is the only thing that can save Scarlet and her loved ones. But the water comes at a price. With lives—and hearts—at stake, Scarlet leads her friends on a dangerous journey to the Fountain of Youth. Where eternal life is possible, but death is certain.
I’ve recently got a kindle, and I love getting things cheap, so when I came across Avow at 77p, I thought why not?
I was actually really impressed with the series. I’m not a massive fan of love triangles as they tend to frustrate me - seriously, just pick one! However, I didn’t have that feeling with this book because of the nature of the love triangle. I thought the nature of forbidden love was very interesting, and not something i’ve come across before, and it was done really well.
The writing in this series wasn’t the best i’ve seen, but it did get progressively better throughout the series. The characters were well likeable and very developed, especially Tristan.
I loved the flashbacks in the second and third book, it was done extremely well and it was nice to get a backstory, however, it was essential to full understand the plot. The ending was sad, but necessary and completely unexpected. However, there is happy endings, just not for everyone.
It was a great ending to a great series. Its worth a read!
MY RATING: ★★★★★
