Everlasting is one of my fave books last year. So you can imagine that I have been anticipating this book in seeing what is going to happen to the characters now. EEPPP! This book picked off where the second one left off. They are back from the island trying to figure out what to do next but there are a few things that are holding them back. For instance, Oscar. Major love strain in his book. He is not the same buy in the first book and is hiding loads of secrets. I was so not happy with him. Tough, once I got caught up with what happen to him to distance himself, I understood why he did it. Old loves come back. That's right. Camille finds herself in major hot water once her "fiance" jumps back in the picture. At some points of the story, I am not happy with her either. Some of her decisions that she made makes me want to slap her! The cost. Yes my dears, their is cost to the stone that Camille used. This is the center point of the story and the biggest problem. I loved that Camille did not give up. She pushed toward her goal of saving the one that she loves despite all the other drama. Each new chapter, the reader learns more about the stone and at what cost it will take to get back their lives. The Eternal Sea is much darker and edger than ever. Faced with a journey to travel to find more pieces of a missing puzzle, The Eternal Sea delivers love and sacrifice. The Eternal Sea is a great read!
I'm not entirely sure why I wanted to read this one. I wasn't overly impressed with the last quarter of so of Everlasting. But, I enjoyed the premise of the story and knew it wasn't over. Therefore, I decided to give this newest installment in the series a try. Since I didn't have my hopes up, it far exceeded my expectations. Camille seems much more grown up in this book. She went through a lot in the first one, so I was expecting it. It just seemed like I enjoyed her character more. She's trying to figure out her place in life and were she really belongs. She has to do this without her father and mix in a long lost half brother. Too add to the confusion, Oscar is not acting like the person she feel in love with. In fact, he's pretty much ignoring her. Turns out the stone isn't through with Oscar and Camille. You obviously can't get something for nothing and the stone wants payment for Oscar's life. I enjoyed the paranormal aspect more. Their journey leads them to Egypt and even the underworld. Along the way, we learn that not everybody is friend. And, sometimes the crew knows what more than they let on. Love can grow cold without a soul, and friends can become more than that without meaning to. I loved were this book takes us. From aboard a ship crossing the Indian ocean, to a sand storm in the Egyptian desert, and the Underworld itself, this story has it all. It was a vast improvement over the first and I found myself reading it well into the night. It's dark and sinister as times, but also has hope and love. Now, I truly want to read the next in the series!
