Awry (The Archers of Avalon #2) by Chelsea Fine
Published by Firefall Publishing
Three curses. Two brothers. One love triangle.
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.
After Sunday’s post, you all went out and bought Anew (it’s only .99) and read it….completely fumbled over your dropped jaw when you were done, and immediately started Awry. Right?
For the sake of arguements, let just say, right.
The story picks up right where Anew left off. Scarlett has “died” but before she does, she tells Tristan she knows where the Fountain of Youth is. Say what?! Of course, nothing is ever easy, so when she wakes up- still in her current life- she has no memory of where it might be. And thus, we start the cycle over again.
Things are different this time around, however. Not only can Tristan feel Scarlett, now she can feel him. So what happened in her past life to make things different this go round? That was a question I had in the last book and Awry doesn’t disappoint in revealing what happened. Every question I had in the first book was answered in this one. Of course, that just means a whole new can of questions opened up.
Back to Scarlet, she is still dating Gabriel. “Fierce Jaguar” as Heather- the still crazy BFF who is now apart of Team Awesome (her name for their group) calls him. But, emotions inside of Scarlet that she can’t help but have, hinder her from really being with him. Imagine if you were kissing your boyfriend only to feel what his twin brother is feeling? Ewww, gross. Then again, when the brothers are as hot as the Archers…
With all of that being said, I’m officially proclaiming myself-
There’s something so beautiful about the tragic, moody boy isn’t there? My heart hurt for him so many times during this book when I thought about all he had gone through.
Awry takes you from the present to the past, allowing you to understand how the trio came to be. The sacrifices each of them made that led them to where they are now.
The zany cast of characters is back with a wonderful mix of laughter, heartbreak, romance that could be deadly, Ashmen, and a villain you may or may not have seen coming.
