Avow by Chelsea Fine

Goodreads Summary:

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.

My Review:
Avow is the last book in The Archers of Avalon series. I must say that this one was my favorite. The story was so well written I felt like I was a part of their world. We finally get a to see what happened in Scarlet's past lives and Tristans behavior makes so much more sense now. The depth to which he loves her is the kind that shifts the world. The kind that makes you super jealous! I loved seeing how things went when Scarlet was alive  before. It also gives the information we need to know what the Fountain of Youth really is and why it is dangerous. The journey that they group takes the the Fountain is full of dangerous obstacles and bobby traps.  In order to get the water from the fountain there has to be a sacrifice. Someone has to die for others to live. Scarlet takes it upon herself to give her life for Tristan after the curse is reversed. She can not let him die. The journey through the cave to the Fountain is a dangerous one. Nothing goes as planned. Not everyone survives. I cried when the particular character died. Not everything that happens in the cave is bad though. There is some serious lovin too! Will they get their happily ever after? Or will Raven wreck the Archers lives again?

One of my favorite parts of the story was Nate! His Indiana Jones outfit and use of the whip is awesome! His ability to make people feel calm or crack a smile in an intense situation makes him even more awesome. I love Nate. He is the perfect contrast to the Archers. He keeps everyone grounded. I feel like Heather was the female version of Nate. She kind of got the short stick here. Heather is poisoned and her "crazy" scenes are quite funny. They are both awesome characters.

Tristan and Scarlet are perfect. Their lives have kind of sucked because of the curse but, they are so in love. It is hard to describe it. Their love has transcended time and death. There is no better way to say it. Their past is rock and beautiful at the same time. I am glad they got that moment in the cave to finally be with each other. I was hoping they would get a moment. I am so glad their relationship won. I don't feel bad that Gabriel didn't truly get Scarlet's heart. You will see why when you read it. He is truly a good guy even with his interesting past. 

The story ended perfectly. Even if it was different from how I thought it would end. I am glad I found this series on another blog. It is one of my favorites. I strongly suggest that you go out and buy the whole series ASAP!
