Synopysis: 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. - goodreads.com

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. - goodreads.com

I wasn't sure what to expect when I read these book but this book series quickly became one of my favourites! I love the covers, I love the characters and I love the author! These books were full of originality and I just absolutely adored them! Scarlet was a such a great character and I really liked her and also her attitude towards tough situations was amazing. Tristan and Gabriel are sooooooooo hot and luckily they are twins! I really enjoyed the love triangle in this book between Scarlet, Gabriel and Tristan as Scarlet didn't string one boy along while she was going out with the other one! I really liked Tristan's devotion to stay away from Scarlet as he will kill her if he gets too close to her and we see a lot more Scarlet and Gabriel interactions in these books but you can understand why as Tristan could kill her! It was great in Awry though to see more Scarlet and Tristan interaction! I am totally Team Tristan and I was even more so after reading Awry! The Archers of Avalon Series is told from Scarlet, Tristan and Gabriel's point of views and I loved that we got to get into Tristan and Gabriel's heads and we could see their love for Scarlet and determination to save her. I love the journey that the characters take through these books and their determination to find the Fountain of Youth! The ending to Anew was SO good and I was seriously gutted when I turned to the next page in my Kindle and it was blank! I am seriously looking forward to the next book in this series, Avow as the plot of Awry left me begging for more! I also love the covers of this entire series!
