Editorial Reviews

Lizzy Ford
"Julia and Nolia have created an original and intriguing tale about a girl who stumbles upon a world hidden within the depths of our own. The story is what I've come to expect from Julia: delightful, well-told and entertaining. I was equally impressed by Nolia, an up-and-coming young adult author with an effortless talent for storytelling." - Lizzy Ford, bestselling author of the Rhyn Trilogy

    As a YA book blogger I meet a lot of awesome authors, and one of my
    favorites hands down is Julia Crane the author of the Keegan’s
    Chronicles. So when I was contacted to be a part of a blog tour for
    Eternal Youth a book which Julia Crane and author Nolia McCarty wrote
    together, I was all for it! Although Eternal Youth was very different
    compared to Julia’s other works, it was still a very enjoyable read!
    Eternal Youth follows Callie, Callie is sick of having to follow her mom
    up volcano’s and travel all over the world to places she can’t
    pronounce, all in search of the fountain of youth. She is sure her mom
    is losing her mind, but when a supposed to be normal vacation to Bermuda
    goes wrong she lands in Aionia a magical island where there is no
    electricity and no way home..a place where nothing is as it seems.
    Callie will meet some new friends. Maybe even fall in love, but what
    happens when she finds a way to get back home? Will she leave everyone
    she has learned to love in Aionoia…or will she stay there forever. This
    was a great read, right in the beginning you are thrown into Callie’s
    life marching up the side of a volcano with her ‘crazy’ mother, I
    absolutely loved hearing about the scenery of the jungles and amazons
    she has been to. I will admit the beginning of Eternal Youth was a
    little slow, but once you got about half way through it really really
    picks up, and even though the beginning was slow it was still nice to
    read, Julia and Nolia’s writing flowed very nicely and I easily read
    Eternal Youth in one day! My favorite part of Eternal Youth was Aionia,
    at first I couldn’t imagine being trapped on a small island where there
    is no electricity. But the more I learned about Aionia and the people
    that lived there and heard about it threw Callie’s eyes the more the
    place seemed peaceful, and beautiful. I would’ve loved to learn more
    about Aionia and how it became there, everything about Aionia was very
    enchanting. Although Aionia was my favorite part of Eternal Youth, I
    also very much loved the characters. Each character was very different
    than the next, but still all very lovable. My favorites were Alaric and
    Braden. Alaric was just flat out dreamy and so wonderful to Callie, and
    did I mention this guy is hot? I adored their relationship, it was nice
    to see Callie so open to him and loving, but still kept her spunky-ness!
    Braden is Callie’s cousin, but he might as well be her brother! I LOVED
    Braden, I was completely jealous of Callie to have such a caring cousin.
    Since Braden had basically grown up with Callie he knew her almost as
    much as Callie knew herself, he knew when she was upset and mad and
    would help her threw her problems. Their friendship was very touching.
    Altogether Eternal Youth ended up a great read that I could not put
    down! If you’re looking for a light read that will take you to a
    beautiful world, with lovable character, than Eternal Youth is a novel
    for you! On a side note-Eternal Youth is currently a standalone novel,
    and I think it does great at being a standalone and ending with the
    reader being able to have their own imagination on what happened next
    for Callie, but it could also easily be made into a series and be
    continued -copy provided by author,in exchange for honest review

    I am going to keep this short as I dont like long lengthy review

    I am going to keep this short as I dont like long lengthy reviews that end up giving the story away and I am sure if you are an avid reader as myself you are the same way..  At first when I started reading this book I wasnt quite sure whetjer I would like it but as I kept reading I got into it and found I couldnt put the book down.  Callie is a young girl that has to travel around the world with her mom as her mother is obsessed with finding the fountain of Eternal youth.  I liked the way the author portrays the charactets.  They are easily relayable.  Callie and her mom have many adventures and one of them will blow you away.  I found this story to be very exciting.  The beginning was just a little slow but it soon turns around so keep reading.  Believe me when I te.ll you that you wont be able to put the book dowm.  I have read a few of this authors work.  This is quite different than what she usually writes but it is now one of my favorites.  A must read and at only $2.99 its a steal.  Love. LOVE LOVED IT!
