A Double Trouble Review: Awry by Chlesea Fine
So What is better than 1 review? TWO REVIEWS!
To me; having a double opinion on a book is a good thing! :)
I have teamed up with Tess from My Pathway to Books to bring you
A Double Trouble Review !
Basically; we have both read a book and have decided to share BOTH opinions in one post! Since this is our first time doing this, we are both featuring the same book. Don’t worry though; from here on out – both of our post will feature DIFFERENT books – but both post will have BOTH reviews! :)
I completely love this book! No joke. I kind of feel bad saying this; but this one rocked my face off even more than the first book did. Which is a good thing! It means that Fine hasn’t lost her writing momentum!
The flashbacks of Scarlet have got to be my favorite part of this book. I LOVE them. It is almost like you are getting to read two books in one. I also enjoyed the fact that we got to see just how things played out. I will say that after those flashbacks, I am 100% Team Tristan! Why? Because it is not everyday that you find someone who can love like he can. It literally knows NO time limits & it is pretty much never ending. Everyone should experience a love like that at some point in their lives.
I love that it showed just how Scarlet at Gabriel ended up together. This book also make me like Gabe just a little. (A TINY SMIDGE) Be that as it may, I am still totally Team T! This book happens to be JAM PACKED with Epicness. You don’t want to miss a single page! The book flowed effortlessly and kept me entranced the entire time. Chelsea Fine knows how to write such believable characters, that you feel like you are right there with them as they journey though the pages of this book.
The ONLY issue I had with this book was the ending. ARE YOU KIDDING ME CHELSEA! I am the most impatient person in the world and you went and ended the book like that. I will say though, I am freaking EXCITED to see how everything plays out! :) I would def recommend this book to anyone who likes to fill their time with epic.
Review from Tess:
**You can see the post from Tess – HERE**
The Good: One word…Tristan. You could definitely say I’m Team Tristan All. The. Way. But Awry definitely did soften my heart towards Gabe….a little bit. In Anew, I thought Gabe was annoying but in Awry I got to see Gabe’s side on things and that maybe he doesn’t just love Scarlet because of the curse.
I was super excited while reading Awry that we (the readers) were no longer going to be left completely in the dark about Scarlet’s past life because Chelsea Fine put flashbacks in the book! I got to say at first I was a little annoyed with these flashbacks because it seemed like they kept happening in the middle of the action, but then I started craving them. I had to know more of their back story and you really find out what makes Tristan, Scarlet, and Gabe tick through these scenes!
This book, especially the end, is of EPICNESS. *cue fan-girl moment* Scarlet becomes kick-ass. Tristan somehow gets HOTTER. Gabriel is more tolerable. The story and plot trap you and don’t let you go until you read “The End”. Chelsea Fine knows how to weave stories. Just like Anew I felt like I was trying to find the freakin’ cure to this curse along with them.
The Bad: The only thing that I didn’t like about Awry (which obviously wasn’t even enough to knock it down a star) was there was a part of the book that went a little slow for me. I’m a HUGE Chelsea Fine fan and for me every part of her book is as close to perfection as books get and this part just dragged a little bit for me. With this being said, right after this lull and for the rest of the book I couldn’t take my eyes off my kindle. It just kept getting better and better until it got to the end and then I got pissed because I REALLY didn’t want to wait for book 3 :D
This is a book that you don’t want to miss. Trust me. If you are looking for a book series of Epic, I would definitely recommend the Archers of Avalon series. Epic Story. Epic Love. Epic Tragedy.
Tess and I have decided to offer an eCopy of Awry to one lucky winner!
Remember; check out BOTH blogs – since both are entries for the contest!
