Awry (The Archers of Avalon #2)
by Chelsea Fine (Goodreads Author)
Sometimes love is meant to be. But sometimes 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
To start ideal Archer brothers would look like this:

And yes, I'm aware that these are in fact, Jack and Finn, but a girl can dream :D

So Scarlet's all, "Pffft, no! I don't have feelings for Tristan!" *averts gaze* "What...what on Earth are you babbling about?!"

So basically this book was torture. The girl's got amnesia. Everyone's out to kill her. The curse gets worse. Her love life's in ruins. Plus, we as the reader, have to choose between two amazingly talented, sweet and go

Scarlet inhaled as she looked into his soft eyes and deep dimples. He smelled like leather and water. “I think," she said quietly, now that their mouths were close to each other, “that easy and clean love is not true. It is simply convenient. Messy love, though…that is something to revel in.”

My thoughts are a jumbled mess and I am giant ball of giddiness. I can’t say this story had as good of an ending as the first (The first had an epic ending), but it did a better job

Anew: Book 1 review

“For all the glamour of living forever … immortality is really just a long curse. Finite life is precious; it’s fleeting and significant. But immortality… immortality isn’t living at all. It’s a permanent existence void of meaning.”

So this gem was light years better than Anew in every way. Though still predictable, it wasn't as taxing as the previous book. The characters are a lot better, more defined with a lot more depth.

Have you ever read something so good that you have to reread it 1, 2 or maybe 10 more times before you move on to another book??? Well that is this book!! I am going to be re-reading it already! (and yes it just came out yesterday!) This book was awesome! Much better than book one! Ok, how much do you LOVE Tristan? Because I LOVE him so much! I wanted to scream at his brother you have no right to her, no reason to be upset, she was never yours! I loved reading the story about how they met and fe ...more

Way better than book one! I liked the flashbacks - we got to see how the three main characters met - the plot was also more captivating, though still predictable. I also came to like all the characters more, not only Tristan. The MC's best friend was much more sympathetic in this one for me. She and Nate made for great comic relief. The book was also way more fun to read. The writing is still bad though, and it's still not exactly original.

“Uh…guys?” Nate’s voice trembled a bit as it echoed acro

My god, Chelsea Fine, you torture us by not releasing Awry now!

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?!?!?! If Scarlet admits to loving Tristan, then what happens to Gabriel? More importantly, what happens to Scar since she kind of seemingly died at the end of Anew?!

One minute please -

What a wonderful journey! It's been a long time since I enjoyed a sequel more than the first book. I'm not saying it never happens, but, well, that's pretty rare, you know? When we read a trilogy, beginning the second volume is always filled with fear and followed by tons of existential questions, which we can sum up with this one : Will the sequel ruin or glorify the expectations born in the first book?

Anew ends with a cliffhanger - the kind

Oh Tristan, I adore you so much. This book has sealed the deal for me. Tristan and Scarlet better end up together. I will die (not literally) if they do not!

Scarlet is immediately brought back to life moments after her death. Something has changed this time. She still doesn’t have her full memory back, but she remembers everything that happened since her last life. Unfortunately, she still doesn’t remember where the fountain of youth is. Thanks for letting everyone hope Scarlet.

"In essence - we're all screwed" . Yeah, that pretty much covers it!!! The action starts straight away, and the story twists and turns, dragging our beloved characters even deeper into the complexity of the supernatural curse that is upon them. And I loved it!

This book picks up immediately at the point of the devastating cliffhanger at the ending of book 1 – Anew– and the emotion poured into the first few chapters is staggering! Two pages into this book and I had tears streaming down my face.

My BFF: So, how is sequel of Anew? Have you finished it?

Me: Yes, I have. It was so good. Have you read Anew?

My BFF: Why? Do I have to read it A-S-A-P?

Me: Yes, you have too, what are you waiting for? You’ve already had it.

My BFF: Why do you want me to read it A-S-A-P? Yeah, I know you gave Anew 5 stars and it was your first 5 stars for this year so it must be awesome, least for you. And why you won't stop talking about it? Who do you think you are, Oprah?

You know how in some series, the second book can sometimes be a little... meh? It's not like the first where you have the excitement of the first meeting, the chase, the anticipation of finding out what's going on, and it's not like the last one where you get the conclusion and everything is solved. No, the second book in trilogies can be exactly what they are: an in-between where it lacks that initial excitement, and there is no closure.

But, I am VERY happy to say, that Awry proved to be the e

I don't want to repeat myself by telling you guys again how perfect Tristan is so yeah let's move on to other stuff

**Spoilers if you haven't read Anew**

The last two sentences in Awry have me ecstatic for the final book. I feel as though I should be jumping around my house, fist pumping the air. Seriously. No, seriously. I loved every single thing about this book. The dialogue is witty and hysterical. The characters quirks and strengths make them that much more lovable or loathable. And the element of having star-crossed lovers? Oh, this was done perfectly. Tristan and Scarlet broke me over and over again and
OMG! OMG! As Heather would say in this novel, Awry is absolutely fan-freakin-tastic!!! and I definitely agree! Chelsea Fine has taken me on the most twisted, romantic, and mysterious adventure with the amazing Archers of Avalon series. I'm totally in awe with Fine and this incredible story. I love that Fine gave the backstory of how the love curse began in the 1500's between Scarlet, Tristan, and Gabriel right along with the present day story of them trying to find the cure for the curse.

Come on, did any of you really think this book would fall short after reading ANEW? Shame on you if you just said yes…SHAME!

THE ARCHERS OF AVALON series is one of my favorites, for sure! After reading ANEW, book one in the series, I was like a crazed animal in need of food. I scavenged the internet hoping that AWRY would release soon but, I found nothing on the release date for weeks and weeks. Then, BAM here it is and I was able to breathe again!

5 STARS!!! Ms. Fine did it again! I could not put this one down. Chelsea, please tell me there is going to be a third book. The physical (and sexual) tension between Tristan and Scarlet was amazing and left me wanting more. The book ends with a HUGE cliffhanger that begs for more of their story! I'm dying to know what happens with Gabriel, Heather, Nate, and, of course, Tristan and Scarlet.

Okay guys... Remember how much I loved "Anew"? Well, it was NOTHING compared that how I feel about "Awry" because THIS second book was purely awesome. Seriously, it moved me by so many ways that I don't even know where to start to talk about it...

And after this ending? Let me tell you I am a mess... I almost call my boss saying I was sick in order to read the third book straight away... It wouldn't be rational, right ? Right. I guess...

O.M.G, O.M.G, O.M.G,

There probably just aren't words to describe how much I love this series. I read Anew and loved it, and I told myself to pace out Awry so that December wouldn't feel so far away... or that the wait would not kill me like an arrow laced with immortal blood... which it completely is, BTW (in the words of Heather).

Okay, first, the writing and twists are incredible. I. am. the. world's. worst. predicter. I predict endings and who-dun-its like its a life or death situation for

OMG…OMG…OMG…as Heather would say! I loved this book! Ms. Fine has done it again. But this time she’s done it with information and history instead of the mystery and suspense of the first book. How is that possible? Well, I think it’s possible because the characters are still captivating, the premise is still intriguing and the emotions are still intense!

The characters I fell in love with in Anew are better than ever in Awry. Scarlet is becoming stronger, more focused and the hero this story need

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 p

Awry starts off right where Anew ends. You are immediately thrust back into Scarlet’s life as she tried to understand what is going on, tries to remember her past, and figure out how to end the curse.

All the characters from Anew come back in full force, including some of the minor characters like Heather, Nate and Laura. Every single character has enough depth to them, that even though they are only supporting characters, they really do bring life to the book. The plot was well paced, and perfec

Along with her band of immortal friends and her mortal best friend, they must race to find the fountain of youth before she dies again.

I can't even begin to describe how much I loved this sequel to Anew, which BTW, I loved too. Awry is even better. Much, much better. We get to see flashbacks from Scarlet, Tristan and Gabriel's past lives. And it's oh-some! The first meeting of Scarlet and Tristan, first kiss, and how she ended up being Gabriel's fiance and all were revealed and I so loved that.

Throughout this book, my constant thought was "POOR TRISTAN". Seriously, give him a brea

“How did you kill the Ashman in the forest last year?”
“I shot him with an arrow.”
“What kind of arrow?”
“A sharp one.”
Nate rolled his eyes. “Really, dude? A sharp one?”
“I'm going to kill you." Gabriel pointed at Tristan.
"For what?" Tristan raised a brow at his twin. "It's not like I asked Scarlet to come lie on top of me. I woke up and she was just...there.”
