Everlasting is probably not going to stick with me forever, but it was enjoyable while I was reading it, and I recommend it to preteen or teen readers who are fans of the movies mentioned above. Most of the time the betrothed is either a complete idiot, a villain in disguise, old and senile, comically inept, or generally present as a foil to the hero.
Everlasting is an interesting adventure story with a romance element to it, however I felt this story didn’t captivate me as much as I had first anticipated.
There’s a darker side to the legend everlasitng the stones that’s revealed, and Camille begins to understand that her actions at the end of Everlasting have serious consequences.
Also literally none of the characters which you love from the first book are there such as Ira; that really caused some dissapointment as he added a slight comedy and lightheartedness to the book. But fraziet all bring so much to the plot. Poignant and historically realistic, Everlasting is a great mix of love and adventure.
Ok, seriously, what is it about book series that have some sort of romance aspect that will have the main characters have some sort of stupid falling out in the middle book of the trilogy. The only reason tht i nagie not score this book any lower was because Angie continued to write well, especially the scenery.
He was hilarious and came off as a man who did not take life seriously at first. The unique paranormal elements, the magic, the well written romance, the setting, anggie time period and of course the adventure on the high seas. I am so tempted to give this one star–I hate the ending!!!!! If it wasn’t such a waiting list at the library I would want this one for a bookclub book!
But for me, it all egerlasting fell flat. Camille is still in Australia with Oscar, Ira and her newly found brother, Samuel. Open Preview See a Problem? What fabulous curve would wind into the ending scene? Had me laughing several times.
The Compulsive Reader: Everlasting by Angie Frazier
I definitely recommend checking it out, and hopefully a second installment will appear at some point, as the raw material is definitely there. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. I’m happy to say that Angie Frazier delivered–Everlasting was pretty darn good!
If you read my review of the first book you know that I really enjoyed the characters in that book, this book was no different! San Fransisco back then was built out of discarded ships. I was really impressed by this story, which, incidentally, can count for the Debut Author Challenge. Jan 23, Cialina Muggle-Born rated it really liked it Shelves: Angie Frazier is a writer and mom, a good cook, and a horrible housekeeper.
They also pass my main test for whether I believe a romantic relationship deserves to survive: And her way of weaving historical and fantasy aspects together in a subtle way made it a pleasure to read. Inthe daughter of a well-to-do San Francisco merchant embarks on one final sea voyage with her father before she is to be married. The Eternal Sea is phenomenal.
Although we know about him all along, this book real I was actually surprised by how much I honestly enjoyed book one, Everlasting. It was a vast improvement over the first and I found myself reading it well into the night.
Also, look at that cover – I think it’s lovely. This series is hard to put down and as soon as I finished reading The Eternal Sea I hungered for more! For Camille to be so strong and brave for all of the previous book and this one and then the choice she makes or doesn’t make in the end?
I loved being on this journey with our beautiful cast of characters. Everlasting is an excellent debut novel that will have readers eagerly anticipating the sequel. On her last voyage before the wedding, Camille learns the mother she has always believed dead is in fact alive and in Australia.
Thanks for telling us about the problem.
Oct 12, Deborah rated it really liked it. Do not get me wrong, it was still there in this book, but a lot more things were getting in the way this time. I slowly remembered as I started the book. While I did enjoy it, I just felt like there are better reads out there.
Like I said, a comfort read. There was a definite love triangle in this book but I think it was done better than in many other books. Everything about this book should have put me over the top gaga for it — historical fiction, an ocean voyage, loving the person you shouldn’t love, meeting a long-lost relative.
Jun 20, Danielle rated it liked it. Camille, her father, and his crew, including Oscar who is a “friend” fraier a ship one last time before Camille is to be married off. I really don’t need to read this book again She’s caring and loving – but isn’t afraid to fight for what she believes in.
