Three curses. Two brothers. One love triangle.
Sometimes love is meant to be. But 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 her curse is changing. With the help of the immortal Archer brothers, Scarlet tries to piece together her life and break the curse before her impending death comes again. 

I am so incredibly impressed with the Archer's of Avalon series. It is so totally new and fresh. I've been a bit sick of paranormal as of late. It's all been done before. But, not this. It is so...different and interesting. It also feels realistic in the face of something that is...well, not real. The writing pulls you in immediately and you'll find yourself saying, "Just one more page" at two o'clock in the morning. Not to mention I love the cover. Scarlet's eyes are striking. She's gorgeous and the cover looks just like I pictured her.

The preface of this story is that of a curse. In the last book I didn't truly understand it all, but I knew I wanted to know more. I felt much more comfortable understanding the curse and was longing for it to end with this second installment. The story goes back and forth from the past {waaaay back then} to the present day. It was well written. I found myself not wanting just the past or just the present information but excited for both. I loved when a chapter would go to the past and I could have glimpses of Scarlet and Tristan together. But also just as excited for present day to learn more of what was happening. Each chapter ending had a bit of a cliffhanger that just kept me reading into the night. My emotions were always on high alert. I love this!

I'm a sucker for good character development and we are not lacking here. I love to see the process of change in my favorite character's and hoping they make the right choices. I was practically dying at the scenes between Tristan and Scarlet. Just get together already! I'm dying here!

The ending happened to quick. I wanted just a little bit more to get me through the waiting period. I'm so excited the next and final book is coming out in December of this year! I don't think I could wait for the ending. Team Tristan forever! Go get your girl!


"I'm going to kill you" Gabriel pointed at Tristian.
"For what?" Tristian raised a brow at his twin. "It's not like I asked Scarlet to come lay on top of me. I woke up and she was just...there"
