My Thought
Me: Hey…I know you’ve read Anew, what do you think?

My BFF: O-M-G Rachmi, I’m glad you talked about it non-stop till I read it. I finished the whole series, I hate to say this, but you are absolutely right. It was awesome. The series was awesome!

Me: I’ve told you

My BFF: I know you will say it. Thanks though for making me didn’t leave behind, at least I’m one of 4846 readers now 😀

Me: I’ve gave you my opinion now what do you think about it, aside of awesomeness? 😛

My BFF: I agree with your opinion, even the part about Tristan who always keep his words, though I still love my vampire 😉 so I guess I don’t have anything to say except it was awesome.

Me: Wow….you are speechless, huh?

My BFF: Yeah…I am. With many flashbacks in the beginning and middle of the story, I cannot guess what will happen with the characters in the end, can you?

Me: Hmm…..actually I love those flashback scenes. I never thought that Chelsea Fine will write many lives of Tristan, Gabriel, Nathaniel and Scarlet. So when she did I kind of surprised because it made the story from Anew and Awry clearer. I get a whole of their life story, not only a glimpse of their past and present life. It was like Chelsea Fine put the last puzzle for the story, every part that unclear, potholes from the prequels became clear here. Yet, I feel like their journey to Fountain of Youth too easy. I mean they spend centuries to find it and when Scarlet remembered basically it is just in front of their eyes. I also can guess what will happen to the characters in the ending. I guess I’m pretty good guessing the story or maybe it was because the author actually wrote clues along the story.

My BFF: Well…I think I’ll never pay more attention like you do. I let you be the one who do that because you are an observant reader, I guess. Oh, I have one thing to say that you haven’t mentioned. You didn’t say this series is hot, I mean I can feel the chemistry between Tristan and Scarlet. Their relationship though it was awry but so sweet, so unconditional but not in a cheesy way. I love it, I love reading their story, their banter and I can tell you that I can fell the sexual tension, their passion and their love to each other.

Me: You are indeed a hopeless romantic 🙂

My BFF: Hey, what can I say 😀 what your favorite scene from the series by the way? Mine is when Tristan and Scarlet spent their time in the cave, you know what I mean, right?

Me: Yeah, I know it but I’m not quite fond of it.

My BFF: Why? It was a very sweet romantic full of sexual tension kind of scene, you know.

Me: I don’t know I just feel that they are in the middle of their life and death journey and then there was that scene. I think they have to take their priority, which is their life is their top priority if I can say it.

My BFF: Oh come on, they can have a break from their messy life for a while and enjoy each other company. They fall in love for centuries and have to stay away from each other, for goodness sake. They deserve it!

Me: Hey….it just my opinion.

My BFF: So, we agree then The Archers of Avalon is an awesome series that I will read it again and again in the future. I will never get tire read this story.

Me: Yup, I told you this is an awesome series.

My BFF: Yeah….you don’t have to remind me again but why you gave it 4 stars?

Me: It’s because my questions from Anew and Awry still left unanswered, I still love it though. I won’t give it 4 stars if I didn’t love it.

My BFF: Oh, I have a question too from Avow. I think those are not important questions because it didn’t influence to the story. I mean without we questioning it, the story still awesome and Chelsea Fine didn’t have to explain everything.

Me: I guess it was just our curiosity. I understand that the author cannot describe all of the things in books. Well, maybe it is better to be left behind. It’s like it kept that way for reader imagination but I feel I need to know the way the fountain of youth works to physical appearance of the immortal. I need to know about when or how the Archer brothers and Nate have their youth and gorgeous features.

My BFF: It was just your curiosity because obviously I didn’t mind of unanswered question. Just left it behind, will you?


That’s… my journey with Archer brothers, Scarlet, Nathaniel and Heather and even with Laura, Raven, Clare and Ashmen. A wonderful journey from Chelsea Fine.

I’ll surely read your other books, Ms. Fine. Oh, I’ve read Sophie & Carter by the way so I’m waiting forward for your many books in the future.

Favorite dialogue:
“Tristan followed so close behind her she could feel his hot breath on the back of her neck. Again.
“Ten foot rule,” called Nate.
“Bite me!” Tristan hollered back, more hot breath caressing her skin with his words. A wonderful shiver ran through her body. Damn him and his beautiful mouth and hot breath and his leather-smelling shirt. She assumed he was headed to his own room in the basement, but when she walked into the guest bedroom, he followed her inside. She turned around to tell him to leave her alone, but his bright green eyes derailed her words. He was so pretty…
No! No. He was not pretty. He was in danger of dying. Focus on the danger, Scarlet. She glared at him. “What are you doing?”
“I’m sleeping with you.”
Was he insane? She lifted a brow. “I thought you were mad at me.”
“I’m concerned. Not mad.”
“Huh. Well either way you’re not sleeping with me.”
“Yes, I am.”
He was insane. “No,” Scarlet repeated. “You’re not. You could die, Tristan. We can’t touch and we certainly can’t…sleep together.” She felt her face flush.
A look of amusement crossed his face. “I meant sleep, Scar.”
“Oh. Well.” She cleared her throat. “I don’t want to wake up next to a corpse, so, like…scram.”
Result: 4/5 Stars
