Avow (The Archers of Avalon, Book Three)

Avow (The Archers of Avalon, Book Three) - Chelsea Fine Scarlet’s memories are back! It’s time to find the Fountain of Youth and end their curse once and for all. In the mean time, though, Scarlet is pissed because of what Tristan has been trying to do. Not only that, but the curse has reversed and now she can feel Tristan’s emotions. The curse is getting worse and with ashmen and crazy witches getting in their way, it’ll take all their resources to get to the end. Avow is the final story of the Archer’s of Avalon. It is strong, full of emotion, and leaves you begging for more from Chelsea Fine! I’d been waiting for this book for a long time and when I finally got it and read it, I didn’t know how to feel about the way it was written. The thing is a huge chunk of the book is set in the past. Scarlet’s has her memories back, so we literally go back in time and get to read about all of Scarlet’s lives and what she did in them. The problem was that my mind kept up a constant reminder of “OMG what’s happening in the present?” That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy the story of their past, it’s just that it seemed like a completely separate book.Because of this, I was also worried that the ending wouldn’t be as powerful, but I was totally wrong. At sixty five percent the story-line turns back to the present and ohmygoodness the plot turns even more action packed and awesome.People are kidnapped, slapped around, and carried off by ashmen. You’d think it’d be a serious moment, but I just laughed through it all thanks to Heather’s comments. She and Nate are as hilarious as ever. There is also much abs and pec showing and the all around shirtless glory of the Archer men. They’re both serious book boyfriend material, and I’m kind of sad that this is the end to their story.I’d figured out the ending way back when they mentioned sacrifices and stuff. But then the ending came and someone unexpectedly got hurt and I was like “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooo” but then it turned out alright. So though I knew the sacrifice, it still gave me a heck of a scare when the time came. Any author that can catch me unawares like that is an author I will follow anywhere in any story he or she writes. Again, I can’t believe this is “the end” of The Archers of Avalon. That last line has me thinking there might be more. (Maybe with a different cast? So exciting!) Whatever comes of it, this series makes my top ten favorite series EVER list.
