Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8-10–In 1855, it is not proper for a young lady to sail on a trade ship, but 17-year-old Camille Rowen, raised by her "widowed" ship captain father, is allowed great freedom. The two embark on a last voyage, from San Francisco to Australia, before Camille marries a rich man to save her father's shipping business. Camille discovers that her father has been lying to her: her mother is alive, although gravely ill, in Port Adelaide. The woman is in possession of a treasure map that leads to a magical stone. When a fierce storm sinks the ship and kills Captain Rowen, she and a sailor for whom she has strong feelings are rescued and taken ashore in Australia. Frazier has created terrific, if slightly anachronistic, characters; they are feisty, strong, caring, smarmy, slick, dashing, and dastardly. The plot takes off with the ship and doesn't look back. The sailing tale turns into a treasure hunt with dark overtones and mysterious magical elements that never get in the way of the action. Frazier's descriptions are beautiful: the wild roiling of the ship in the storm, the oppressive closeness of a tiny room in hot weather, the strange beauty of the Australian outback all come to vivid life. This is a strong and charming debut.Geri Diorio, The Ridgefield Library, CT

Fans of historical fiction will enjoy this book." -- Voice of Youth Advocates "Frazier's world is gritty and beautiful and enchanting." -- Shaun Hutchinson, author of THE DEATHDAY LETTER

Everlasting combines adventure with historical fiction and romance, and adds just enough magic to make things interesting.

My biggest problem with this book is that it moved a bit slowed at times.

Camille has always enjoyed an abundance of freedom for a young lady in the late 19th century. She has traveled far and wide with her father on his merchant ship, and prefers her life of adventure and ease to the stuffy society life of her peers. But her upcoming journey to Australia is quite unlike the others: it shall be her last before her marriage to the wealthy Randall Jackson, who expects her to embrace propriety and cease sailing with her father.

But before they can reach their destination, Camille uncovers a long kept secret of her father's and the unpleasant truth about her future...and their ship is wrecked in a terrible storm. Camille and her father's handsome first mate, Oscar, are two of the only survivors, and Camille must convince Oscar to help her find her mother, a woman Camille thought was dead, and discover an unbelievable artifact her mother has kept hidden from Camille's father--and his enemy, who is still very much alive.

Angie Frazier has a strong and talented voice, as revealed in this debut novel. Everlasting is adventurous, smart, and sweet, and contains many unique elements that will cause this novel to stand out. The characters are realistic and personable; Camille is a strong and capable character who possesses courage and determination to get her through the toughest of situations. Oscar is witty, sharp, and loyal, and his past in an interesting one. Even the supporting characters, like Oscar and Camille's Australian guide, Ira, are well rounded, and add a spark of humor and fun to the story.

The plot is well drawn out, with just enough mystery to keep you reading, and excellent, descriptive settings.

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!

Format: Hardcover
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. The names have been changed, but the story remains the same: normal teenage girl falls for otherworldly beautiful boy. Vampires, werewolves and witches run rampant across every aisle (not that there's anything wrong with that). ;)

And then there's this story.

Too beautiful to give it the same normal title as "book", this tale weaves itself into an amazing adventure, with so many twists and turns and beautiful characters, that before you've gotten to the ninth chapter, you've found that its wound its way directly into your heart.

Angie Frazier has created a tender, romantic, thrilling, fun, heart-wrenching novel.

This is the type of book that you yearn for as you search through shelves upon shelves of selections at the library. This is the type of book that began your desire to read fiction in the first place. Everlasting is a charming, overwhelmingly emotional journey through the life of, yes, a teenage girl. And that is where he similarities with all the other supernatural novels ends.

Camille has but two loves: her father and the sea. Now, at the age of seventeen, and with an impending wedding coming up, she is faced with the difficult choice of letting one of those go. With her last and final voyage with her father, Camille feels she is ready to come to terms with what her new adult life will hold. But can she truly say goodbye to the thrill of the open sea, or to her friendship with Oscar, the young man who her father rescued from the streets years before?

As it turns out, Camille learns that sometimes in life, the important decisions are made for you.
