Series: Archers Of Avalon #2
Genre: YA Paranormal/Fantasy
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 her curse is changing. With the help of the immortal Archer brothers, Scarlet tries to piece together her life and break the curse before her impending death comes again.
What I Thought:
So, back when I read Anew, the first book in the series, I thought that the curse was really different and unique, and in Awry, we learn more about the curse and how Scarlet meet Gabriel and Tristan. I really liked seeing how she met them and how Raven, the girl who cast the curse fits into the picture.
Oh, and remember when I said that there is more to Scarlet’s guardian than what we saw in Anew? We definitely learn more about her guardian in Anew. And not good things (naturally). Still, I feel like her part in things is not over, and that we’ll get the last bits and pieces of her story in the last book.
I really liked the flashbacks and how they were incorporated. It really added to the romance and the curse, and it really made the curse have more of an impact because you know the history behind everything. There’s so much there, and all of the details and history seem so real, and well thought out, and not there just to be there. Plus, the flashbacks really made the relationships between everyone easier to understand because you know where everyone is coming from.
I really like how everything is coming together, and how they’re still trying to figure out everything…but also how they’re getting closer to finding the Fountain Of Youth. There are still some missing pieces, of course, but I have this strong feeling that Fine will wrap everything up really well.
Let’s Rate It:
I really liked Awry and how it built on the world that Fine created in Anew. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing how everything comes together. Awry gets 4 stars.
