I really don’t need to read this book again View all 7 comments. Camille clicked the latches down on her trunk and glanced out her bedroom window. White haze choked the small seaport, and the fog bells sounding across the bay echoed in her chest.
Fitting weather to mark the death of her freedom. Oscar flinched and stared at her. Oscar covered his mouth with his hand and paced the rug. What is this Umandu place? It’s a romantic story of love and loss centering on Camille, a young woman ensnared in a quest for a mythical stone; a stone so powerful it could change her life forever. Relationships were so important in this book—the way they challenged the characters to question their choices everlasfing to find the courage to follow their dreams.
Trying to make her way in a world when women had little say in their future, Camille fascinated me. I loved her strength of will and sense of adventure. Throughout the events that transpired in Everlasting, Camille showed true bravery and whole lot of spunk.
I enjoyed watching her character grow and evolve. My favorite aspect of Everlasting involved the dynamics between Camille and Oscar, the poor sailor who stole her ever,asting. No matter how many fancy dresses or expensive emerald rings Camille’s fiance Randall could buy for her, it was so obvious that no one could compare to Oscar. The chemistry between these two absolutely sizzled.
I found myself desperately wanting Camille to come to her senses frazidr realize just how perfect Oscar was for her, no matter what the veerlasting and financial ramifications would everasting.
Here’s an example of Camille interacting with Oscar—you can practically cut the tension with a knife. She watched as his eyes traveled over her own features, touching on the wound by her temple and settling on the heart-shaped fullness of her lips. Oscar held his piercing stare. Even the strands of pearls, all laid out awaiting her wverlasting.
The heavy word weighed on her as Ira continued to snore and Oscar continued to study her in a way that made her feel captivating and beautiful. The twists and turns constantly surprised me and kept me turning the pages with delight. Supporting characters like Ira the gambler and Daphne, the Madame with the heart of gold added even more spark to an already exciting novel.
Everlasting will always hold a special place with me. It’s one of those books that lives on in your imagination and your heart. I hope to read more of Angie Frazier’s novels and perhaps revisit Oscar and Camille again. Evelrasting all 5 comments.

Everlasting Series by Angie Frazier
Why haven’t we heard more about this one? It combines adventure, romance, and a touch of mysticism into a meticulously researched historical fiction thrill ride. I picked up this vrazier on a whim at the library. I was so intrigued by the jacket frazie that I found myself glancing through the pages at the red light by the library’s parking lot and every red light thereafter.
I A hidden gem! I couldn’t put it down!
Yes, I know–totally not safe. I couldn’t wait to get home and immerse myself in this book. IEverlasting felt unique and refreshing. I wish it had a different title to reflect just how special this tale was. The title “Everlasting” makes it seem so generic–too much like every other teen book published this wverlasting with all of these “ever” and “never” and “forever” type titles I can’t keep them straight!
This book was anything but generic–it had a riveting plot, steal-your-breath romance, and exceptional characterization. Angie Frazier’s writing and research shine throughout this brilliant novel. Her cast of characters is delightful, from the dashing Oscar with his charm and loyalty to the loveable con-man Everlaxting with his wit and humor. Her settings are lush and enthralling, from everlxsting high seas to the Australian Outback. Unlike so many other novels with their “I loved you for no reason the moment I saw you,” Angie creates a simmering romance between Camille and Oscar that gradually intensifies throughout the novel.
I was enthralled as I watched the romance unfold–the tender moments and little touches and longing looks had me hooked! I anvie that Angie let the love simmer–it creates so much delicious romantic tension as a companion for all of the adventure. With equal parts adventure and romance, Everlasting is sensational! This novel is bursting with plot and adventure with just the angje amount of romance to spice things up.
I felt like I was reading Romancing the Stone and Pirates of the Caribbean mashed into one enrapturing historical fiction gem. Mar 23, Kelly rated it liked it. Everlasting is a comfort read.
Right after Camille and her father get back from that one last trip to Australia. Unsurprisingly, the voyage to Australia goes anything but smoothly. Storms at sea, heartbreaking loss, rumors of a hidden magical treasure, forbidden love, a dangerous journey through harsh terrain with everlastingg in hot pursuit — Angie Frazier packs all the elements of a tale of high adventure into Everlasting.
Like I said, a comfort read.
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. Make some hot cocoa and let Angie Frazier take you away on a grand adventure. Review originally published at Fantasy Literature Oct 05, Anne rated it it was ok Shelves: I really liked the idea of this book, the premise was definitely interesting.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t done very well. The characters, although charismatic, felt rather flat. I didn’t feel connected to them at all. The world needed more development as well, it was very easy to forget what time period the story was supposed to take place in.
In the end, many important scenes were done too fast, which led me to be confused at some points. I also knew what would happen about halfway Actual rating 2. I also knew what would happen about halfway through the book, there was no suspense at all. Overall, I liked that the book had more to offer than a simple love story, but the whole thing could have been written so much better and more exciting.
I have absolutely no desire to read the sequel. Nov 15, D. In today’s world of Young Adult novels, there’s no shortage of the supernatural. Oftentimes the same basic storyline displays itself across the shelves of our local bookstores.

Too beautiful to give it the same normal title as “book”, this t In today’s world of Young Adult novels, there’s no shortage of the supernatural.
