It makes sense to me. Samuel spends the whole book being a jerk as well and I thought his “secret” was so obvious. Angie Frazier is a writer and mom, a good cook, and a horrible housekeeper.
I love that Angie let the love simmer–it creates so much delicious romantic tension as a companion for all of the adventure. Everything was here ships, forbidden love, funny side character but something was missing, and Everlasting fell short of the brilliance of its cover.
There’s more danger, deceit and a well written love triangle that left me just as confused as Camille. I am so over love triangles. Another reason for my dissapointment was that there was literally no action in the majority of the book, all the action was at the end of the book and had to be wrapped up pretty quickly as she left alot of threads hanging throughout the book.
Best of all, Everlasting was a breath of fresh air. There are too many unanswered questions. Having spent the first 17 years of her life sailing on her father’s ships, she’s not qu In my opinion, there are not enough historical fiction books with fantasy elements out there, and some of the ones that are out there are a bit disappointing. I felt like I was reading Romancing the Stone and Pirates of the Caribbean mashed into one enrapturing historical fiction gem.
Angi feel like there aren’t all that many YA authors who can pull this off successfully, but Frazier did an excellent job.
Everlasting by Angie Frazier | Scholastic
I loved the unconventional setting of the story Australia as well as the way the paranormal and historical elements were woven together. In some ways i wished it ended with Everlasting, but that is the danger of sequels.
I think the best part of this book is the love triangle that emerges. Oftentimes the same basic storyline displays itself across the shelves of our local bookstores.
It’s one of those books that lives on in your imagination and your heart. But can she truly say goodbye to the thrill of the open sea, or to her friendship with Oscar, the young man who her father rescued from the streets years before?
I personally really love History so I love getting my hands on a good historical fiction book.
In my opinion, there are not enough historical fiction books with fantasy elements out there, and some of the ones that are out there are a bit disappointing.
And I want to see Camille and Oscar together.
Their journey leads them to Egypt and even the underworld. Veerlasting book did seem to start off a little slow that was my only real issue with it.
I missed Ira throughout the whole book. I must say that this series continues to stun me as it continues. The setting was very realistic, as were the Everlasting was, in short, a very pleasant surprise. And this wasn’t the best of stories.
That has to mean something in the grand scheme of trying to find a soul, right? Angie is a masterful story teller who weaves fantasy and romance. An fraziier map, a mythical, magical stone, and an era when travel was dangerous at its best. And although Oscar was the broody guy, the everlsting that he died at the end was a nice plot twist from the norm.

Everlasting (Camille Rowen, book 1) by Angie Frazier
This book left such a cliffhanger. For example, Oscar spends almost the whole book pushing Camille away and being a jerk.
I wasn’t overly impressed with the last quarter of so of Everlasting. When their Sydney-bound ship g Sailing aboard her father’s ship is all seventeen-year-old Camille Rowen has ever wanted. Now that Camille has Oscar back she thinks her destiny with the stones is over but that is not the case at all. Major love strain in his book.
I A hidden gem!
With several different elements and arcs, there is plenty to keep the reader interested throughout the book. The Eternal Sea is much darker and edger than ever. The kind with swords, pirates, shipwrecks, tough decisions and islands with buried treasure.
