The characters are all just as great as in book one; they’re realistic in their emotions as they deal with this new adventure at hand. In the interest of not wanting to give anything away, I’ll just say that there are other little things like that in the book.
And you know what? This wouldn’t have been a bad sngie, especially when Camille stumbles upon a letter from her mother, who Camille thought had died years ago.
The Eternal Sea
Tough, once I got caught up with what happen to him to distance himself, I understood why he did it. The first book was amazing. He really had come to her in the black water of the underground pool. As I read the first chapters, I was not exceedingly impressed.
Ultimately, they just all somehow add up to something silly, not meaningful.
Everlasting Series by Angie Frazier
But things are not to be so simple. Camille finds herself in major hot water once her “fiance” jumps back in the picture.
Plus the fact that it takes place on and surrounding the sea was a fantastic touch. This book was also a bit more dark and gloomy ftazier book one. It reminds me of a fairytale, like Little Mermaid or Tangled.
I definitely recommend checking it out, and hopefully a second installment will appear at some point, as the raw material is definitely there. Ok, I think Anfie done with that. I couldn’t wait to get home and immerse myself in this book. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Hardcoverpages. Frazier is seriously like my favorite author.

Anyway, Camille and Ange end up on a quest together to try to provide Camille with some closure and also to prevent an incredible power from being stolen by an incredible scumbag.
Unfortunately, not long after setting sail, they encounter a massive storm.
In some ways i wished it ended with Everlasting, but that is the danger of sequels. Oscar squinted at the ground and seemed to be working hard to piece together what her father had said on the other side. I was so not happy with him. Cue the evil spirits and malicious skull sightings and a mother dying of tuberculosis and both Oscar and Camille fainting in love for each other without the other knowing. 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.
Maybe I’ve just read too many compelling YA fantasy books and this one didn’t really stand up to them. Unsurprisingly, the voyage to Australia goes anything but smoothly.
Aug 19, Chachic rated it it was ok Shelves: The stone can do exactly what Camille wants most: I’m not entirely sure why I wanted to read this one.
But things are not to be so simp Romance and adventure are just around the corner. I was disappointed that there was little Ira in the story, but I did get a kick out of some of the new characters. Lucius is a bit of a snot and though he is easily written off, Frazier writes him in a manner that made me question his back story and the psychology behind him.
Everlasting and The Eternal Sea are two of the better historical reads I’ve given a chance even though they only get 3 cupcakes from me.
