When I first saw this book, I didn’t even think about what the plot was. I haven’t even heard of this book until looking at it on the shelf. The cover was sure pretty! and I was looking forward to reading a light perhaps romantic historical romance YA. I was in for a real nice surprise. Yes it was historical fiction. Yes it had nice romantic elements without going overboard. But! it had a real nice action (think Indiana Jones) story to it, and it was so good that I was flying through the pages and was so engrossed in the book I nearly finished it all in one sitting. I thought Camille was a great character. She’s likable without being too tough. She’s not too girly either. She does have fierce determination though, and that’s what really makes her admirable and likable. Her chemistry with Oscar is well done and they do make a cute couple. Again, I’d have to say, nothing over the top, nothing too mushy. It was just about right. That’s what I noticed about this book. There’s a little bit of everything that makes it just the right amount to make this story very enjoyable to read. The adventure aspect of the book has to be my most favorite, because it really kept the story going. There are a couple of twists throughout the book and I liked the little story about her mother and what happened to her during all this time. The ending was a real good one, and there is a sequel after this book (titled; The Eternal Sea) which I will be getting. I really want to know what happens and hopefully it will be just as good as this one. I recommend this to all YA readers. You’re in for a surprise. It’s a great adventure story with a little bit of everything, at the right amounts so you will fully enjoy the book.

This book, despite it's uber-pretty and dreamy cover, is in fact a swashbuckling adventure full of twists and turns and shocking events. Despite being bound to marry Randall, a man of wealth who can save her father's business, Camille sets off for one last sea-faring adventure with her father. Upon his tragic death, she finds herself in close contact with her longtime friend and secret crush, low-class Irish Oscar. With only him to depend on, Camille must find her long-lost mother and the map to find a stone that can bring her father back to life - all before his evil rival steals it to sell to the highest bidder. The best part of the book, to me, is the romance that slowly blooms between Camille and Oscar. His tragic past and deep love for her is really awesome to read about. He makes Camille feel the way she wishes Randall could do, and she must make a choice between being responsible to do what society requires and in being true to her heart. This book had so many elements that I typically love in a book, but for some reason they didn't come together in a way that made my pulse race. I think that I wanted it to slow down and focus on the romance aspect rather than the actual adventurous events in the story. Since the story was ultimately plot-driven rather than character-driven, I constantly found myself hanging, waiting for the parts I enjoyed most. However, this is worth a read, especially if you enjoy adventure!

Good beginning that really draws yiu into the story. The characters are fun and likeable and the plot is interesting but so many questions werent answered. It is like the author started stuff and didnt know how to finish it so she just dropped it. Itlf there is anseqyal then the unanswered questions might be ok but i felt there were some major plot holes in the story. I believe this is a n,book worth reading thoug if you like the search for cursed treasure and an adventure on the seas. If the author wrote it a bit differently it would be extremly better. The life threatening situations just seemed too easily conquored like you never worried the charaxywr might die because they got out of trouble way too easily. Still it was enjoyable to read.

This book is the best that I have read for a long time. I recccomend this to girls who are not old enough for deep romance but are old enough to understand love and how to know it is there. Maybe the 10 to 13 age. Great book read it straighr through without taking a break. I absoloutly LOVE it. It is my favorite bok of all time!!!!!! Should be a definate buy.

I stumbled upon this book on a shelf at my library and got it because of the cover. (strange, yes I know) It was a good story. Very different than the vampire, witch, werewolf, angel theme going on right now.All the characters were great. I am looked forward to the next book

Several months before Camille's marriage, she goes on one last voyage with her father. Just before reaching their destination in Australia, Camille discovers a secret her father has kept for 16 years-her mother did not die during childbirth and she is still alive. Before Camille can extract more information from her father, the ship goes down with her father-leaving Camille in the care of Oscar, her father's first mate. He agrees to go with Camille to see her mother and get the map to the stone of Umandu. If Camille can get to the stone before her father's rival, then she can bring her father back to life. With the help of Ira, their Australian guide, and Monty, Oscar and Camille travel through the wild Outback. With each day comes a bunch of near-death experiences and fast paced action scenes. I wanted to love this book. The first half of the book was a bit disappointing. There were a few really juicy scenes that I loved, but overall, I thought it was okay. The second half blew me away. I found myself flipping rooting for Oscar and Camille. I loved their relationship. Oscar was constantly caring for Camille. He saves her life many times throughout the book. It's so cute. My absolute favorite part of the whole book was actually in the beginning when they were on the ship and the storm was bringing it down. Camille ran on deck and was scared. Oscar embraced her and said "My Camille" calming her and letting her know that he'd keep her safe. It was just TOO cute. My heart was melting! Basically whenever Oscar opened his mouth I was melting. He just had that effect on me. I found Camille, while ahead of her time with her independence, quite selfish at times. I thought choosing to marry Randall instead of pursuing her interest in Oscar, at the beginning of the novel, because her father's business was failing was honorable of her. However, there was one scene where I wanted to slap her. She basically was wondering why she couldn't marry Randall and still continue her thing with Oscar. I mean come on! That is so selfish. She only decides it wouldn't work, not because its wrong, but because she thinks Oscar wouldn't like to be considered second best. But I other than that I thought she was brave and had a back-bone. I loved Ira. He was so funny-kind of like an uncle. He stuck with them through their journey even though he would get nothing out of it. While I was disappointed with this book, I still thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a swashbuckling adventure. Everlasting read like a movie. I literally could see everything very clearly in my mind, including music! Think Pirates of the Caribbean meets Titanic. It was great. I liked Everlasting and will definitely be reading the next book when it comes out.

Oh was I ever surprised by Everlasting!! I was very skeptical of what this story would produce, I thought it would be a typical historical or fantasy but Everlasting was anything but typical to me. There is a young-girl who loves to sail the seas with her father William and his handsome and distracting first-mate Oscar. She embarks on her last voyage on the sea before she gets married to Randall and that trip changes her life forever. Angie Frazier has completely peaked my interest in YA Fantasy novels like this. I haven't read any novels that are similar to this one or ones that had so much adventure in it that I actually enjoyed. Usually I'm not big on adventures but I was hooked from chapter 1. There is magic, adventure, an enchanted map, danger, and delicious romance that makes this series a must read! It's hard to categorize this as paranormal romance, historical or fantasy - it had the best of all genres. The characters are genuine and likeable; Camille is so determined, caring and adventurous plus her issues of the heart are so realistic. I connected with Camille instantly and she tugged on my heart with all the struggles she faced. Then there is Oscar, he is sarcastic, manly, protective and very supportive of Camille which made him a strong hero that grabbed you in to the story. The secondary characters are all great too, Ira was so humorous and I loved how he called Camille "love" all the time. The adventure is so unique, I really wasn't sure what was going to happen next and I was surprised every step of the way. Once I picked up Everlasting, I couldn't put it down, even at the times where I wanted to cry and give up I just couldn't. The romance is so sweet and enchanting yet it doesn't take away from the adventure at all. The romance is clean and the language is clean and I would highly recommend this book to YA readers! I will be grabbing book 2 here soon!

I hardly ever write reviews to books because i feel some of them are biased, however this book was too good not to write a review about!! i read this book in about 4 hours because it had me hooked from the second i opened it! i love the characters, especially cameille and oscar. there were so many twists and turns that i cried so much! the ending was beautiful, but i wish they would have shown cameille returning home to randall...that would have been quite interesting! this book is a young adult book, but i feel it is perfect anyone loving a good, romantic, adventure book! please read it and i know you won't be disappointed!! I just wish my life could be like this book. but at least i have something to aspire to :)

If there is one thing I love about book its historicals. And what this book had was just great. I enjoyed reading every part of it. Camille is on her fathers ship and she discovers his secret. Upset? during a bad storm, it up ends capsizing, leaving only Oscar and Camille. There they take a adventure of a lifetime. The plot, drama and secrets were good. What I wanted more of was more insight on Camille and Oscar. I felt like I got a better insight of Camille and Randall relationship then with Oscar's. I love the choices Camille had to face and the treasure hunting. It all made everything seem real and fun to read. Of course I loved Camille because not only was she strong, but she listened to her heart. I felt for her when she had to make the biggest desicion yet and knew right away who she would choose. Along the way she made some very interesting friends who inturn made the book refreshing. I have to admit I would love to here more about Ira Beam. He was one that made me laugh quite a bit. Now, the only problem with this book was that is started off slow, so it took a while to actually get to the best part. The book did that alot. Slow, then good. Slow, then good.
