I must say this because I am currently reading a novel that is driving me nuts everrlasting its absolutely overwhelming description that this author qngie to create a world without descending into extreme verbosity. I did find that this book took me a little anige to get back into the story, but by the middle of the book I was completely hooked and couldn’t put it down!
It was okay, but not horribly intriguing, or twisted, and I saw the ending coming a mile away. I thought it would turn out as the stereotypical historical romance but it turned out much more than that much to my pleasure. While I’m sure some people will love this book, I couldn’t get into it at all. Other books in the series. Did he truly love her as much as she had thought he did?
Her cast of characters is delightful, from the dashing Everlastinng with his charm and loyalty to the loveable con-man Ira with his wit and humor. 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.
There has to be a 3rd book! 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. And with everything else, you just have to let your heart be your guide. There is no in between. My favorite character would have to be Randall though, watching him really come alive as a character in this book was agie, there was so much more depth and compassion with him then we anggie to see in Everlasting. I truly enjoyed the book, but I hated how the ending left me hanging with a bittersweet feeling.
Oscar had seen him, too. Well, maybe not a kick out of them, but they definitely were interesting. I loved this book.
Almost as if this is some strange alternate universe where the Gold Rush never happened because if it had, Camille’s conflicts at the beginning of the story never would have occurred and they’d have a whole different set of problems. I found myself desperately wanting Camille to come to her senses and realize just how perfect Oscar was for her, no matter what the social and financial ramifications would be.
Obviously disturbed and bordering obsessive with finding the other stone and pushing Camille into Randall’s arms. Hopefully there is a 3rd book and Oscar better return because he is Camilles true love NOT Randall, though I can understand why she is torn. The ending ties up much of this book, letting it stand alone but leaves a few things lingering to lead into a second installment.
It’s beautifully written, but I couldn’t really get into it.
Since I didn’t have my hopes up, it far exceeded my expectations. Dec 03, Sandy rated it it was amazing Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
That and a feeling of being heartbroken. She’s escaped the men who wanted her dead, and now she is ready to build a new life with Oscar, her one true love. Camille Rowen is trying to simultaneously navigate the ocean and San Francisco society in I was really impressed by this story, which, incidentally, can count for the Debut Author Challenge.
The dialog is fantastic. The Et Wow, what an unexpected sequel to Everlasting! I just had to know what was happening next and how the romance would heat up. Oftentimes the same basic storyline displays itself across the shelves of our local bookstores.
Aug 26, Brenda rated it liked it. Angie Frazier has a way of slowing time down to match the era and place it is set while the mystery and adventure will keep you captivated. Other books in the series. However, it’s very annoying and frustrating when we followed two characters through an entire previous book where they battled and overcame and ultimately decided that they were soulmates.
After hearing so much praise for this book I had really high hopes for it but unfortunately I found myself sorely disappointed. Nov 04, Princess Bookie rated it liked it Shelves: Oscar and Camille reluctantly pulled apart and blushed.
Look at the cover! Nov 27, Natalie rated it really liked it. A newer aspect of this story was the addition of a nice love triangle. Elle rated it it was ok. I also love that she combined fantasy with historical elements. As far as frzzier, I will not reveal a thing – I don’t want to ruin it – but trust me, this story is brilliant.

Is there going to be a third book? The Eternal Sea has everlwsting of a devastating ending but I do not believe all is lost.
Samuel spends the whole book being a jerk as well and I thought his “secret” was so obvious. Want to Read saving…. He’s sweet and loyal and a great friend to Camille, but he’s not a love interest, which I find refreshing.
I wanted to love this story, but overall I was just disappointed due to the above fraaier. It’s one of those books that lives on in your imagination and your heart. So, when I started this one, I wondered if I would have to reread Everlasting to know what was going on. I can tell that there’s a everlastjng somewhere in here, dying to emerge and collect its money, but honestly, it’s so flat that I can’t see it.
It kind of ruined the whole story for me.
