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.

Watch the trailer for this book here!

Ana will put Awry on her top shelf!

My Review:  OMG…OMG…OMG…as Heather would say!  If you don’t know Heather, go read my review for Anew here…go on…we’ll wait!

OK, so, as I was saying, 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 needs.  Gabriel and Tristan are more heartbreaking and swoon-worthy than ever as they continue to live under the curse’s hold.  And, might I add that the curse seems to be evolving…making itself even more troublesome, especially for Tristan who suffers more than he should…and, oh, how my poor heart suffers with him!  Secondary characters, Heather and Nate have a bigger role here too.  We learn so much more about them and what makes them tick.  And I appreciate their humor because it gives my heart a reprieve from the aforementioned suffering!  I find myself wanting them to find happiness as well.  Go Team Awesome!!

This story gave me the history I’ve been waiting for.  Finally, I know how Scarlet met the Archer brothers and how she came to be involved with both of them.  It is tragically beautiful, but, I’m also thankful that it shows us some happy times!  It provides the reader with a glimpse into a simpler time in their lives and into a Tristan we haven’t seen before…a happy, generous, light-hearted Tristan. *sigh*

Because of the twists and turns in this book, it’s very difficult to write a spoiler free review.  But I must say that this does not feel like a “second book”.  In some cases, middle books can feel aimless…simply filling in the necessary information to allow the next book to shine.  This is definitely not the case here.  This book has adventure, romance and heart-felt emotion.  It provides answers and leaves us with new mysteries.  And, without question, it shines! I’m not sure how Ms. Fine will top this book but I, for one, can hardly wait to get my hands on the next installment!!

P.S.  Congratulations to Chelsea Fine!  This awesome series has been optioned for film/tv and I can’t wait to s(or little screen)!  You can read more about it here!  Such exciting news!!  Best of luck Chelsea!!

  2. omg full marks from Ana. *changes book to must-read status*

  3. wow!!!! Top shelf?? Ana, I know this is good if that’s where you put this book. And yes, congrats to Ms Fine for getting the series optioned!

    • Awesome, right? I might get to see Tristan on tv…ummmm…I mean all the characters…ya, that’s what I meant! ;)

  4. Great review, Ana! This sounds like such a promising read. Not only that, but I know you’re stingy with your top-shelf space just like me, so that sold it even further. As soon as I get a chance, I know which series I’m diving into.

    Also, a huge congrats to Ms. Fine for getting her series optioned for film/tv. I can’t imagine how exciting that must be for her!

  5. Exactly – you know it’s good if Ana puts it on her top shelf!
