Avow by Chelsea Fine



Scarlet remembers. Everything. Her past lives, Tristan, Gabriel, Nate: she remembers it all--including how to get to the Fountain of Youth. But time is running out.

Heather and Gabriel have been kidnapped by Raven, while the curse that has plagued Scarlet and Tristan for centuries has shifted, putting the star-crossed lovers in more danger than ever before. Water from the Fountain of Youth is the only thing that can save Scarlet and her loved ones. But the water comes at a price.

With lives--and hearts--at stake, Scarlet leads her friends on a dangerous journey to the Fountain of Youth. Where eternal life is possible, but death is certain.

Freedom without love is not freedom at all.
Wow, this book was uber amazing. They all were! This trilogy can make someone believe in love again! From the first until the third book, it was just perfect. There is so much emotion, sadness, anger, but mostly, overwhelming joy. Chelsea Fine is such a fabulous writer. She creates this magical world that blends perfectly with real life and you'd get totally lost in the story. She makes characters that becomes real to her readers and easily fall in love with them. She writes a story that kept me hooked from start to finish, with nail biting twists.

Nate lifted his head. “When Molly was dying; when she was fading away and I was a useless, empty soul jealous of her mortality, do you know what she said to me?”
Tristan had never seen such a hopeless expression on Nate’s facebefore.“She said, ‘Nate, you have no way
to die, so you need to find a reason to live.’"
Tristan pressed a fist to his mouth, not sure what to say to that.

Scarlet finally remembered her past life and now she knows where to find the Fountain of Youth but it's not easy. Things turned pretty much messy and their life will be in danger. Will they get to the Fountain of Youth before it's too late? Will Scarlet, Tristan and Gabriel be free of their god-awful curse?
There is a difference between a heart that no longer aches and a heart that no longer feels. And Scarlet’s heart no longer felt anything.
 It was hard not to smile and not have fun with these characters. Scarlet is a kickass, Nate was freaking hilarious, and I think that Heather and Gabriel are perfect for each other. And ofcourse, Tristan is as hot as always. I love them all!

A great open-ended ending to The Archers of Avalon trilogy! I cried! But Chelsea didnt leave me on the floor bawling. She did it just the way I wanted it to end, and I really appreciate that.  I also love how "love" plays the biggest part  in this amazing story. Very inspiring. And the brotherhood of these twins were so believable, yes, because I am very close to my sister as well.

I recommend this series to those who love paranormal romance with immortals and reincarnation. Infact, I recommend this to everyone! And man, these quotes below are my favorites! There are more but it would be really long so these will do. Happy reading. x

Quotes from Avow:

“Sometimes love makes hard decisions for the sake of what needs protecting.”
“Yes, love should fight. But there is a difference between a valiant fight and a selfish fight. And love is not selfish.”

"You are my brother,” Tristan said with resolve. “Nothing could end us.
But then she thought of Tristan and she wasn’t afraid.
Staring out into the twilight forest,she whispered, “There is no victory without a battle.”
“It doesn’t matter! Two things you never comment on when it comes to girls: their age and their weight. That’s male survival 101. Come on!”
Gabriel watched her with narrowed eyes and slowly said, “You look old.”
Heather’s mouth fell open.
Good God. Don’t anger the crazy lady.
Raven slapped him, hard. “That’s what happens when your supply of fountain water starts to run out and you
have to dilute it. You age. Magic can only do so much.”
“Sucks to be you,” Gabriel said.
Clearly, he did not value his life.
Gabriel was a reckless star, casting about wherever he may, exploding into whoever made him feel alive, and burning casualties in his wake.
Nothing.
The pain vanished, leaving numbness in its wake.
Scarlet was gone.
