I see this as a modern fairytale that offers a wonderful morale of the story.
TJ
I hope Ms. Dray uses this story as a kickstart for a full-length novel, because I can't wait to read more about Arsinoe.

As much as I love reading anthologies, I always dread reviewing them because it's really a difficult task, but I really enjoyed this book! I started reading this book last week for Spring Break and I finished it this afternoon. I was hoping this anthology would get me in the springtime mood, and it did!! This anthology consists of 13 stories by 13 different authors. What I love most about this novel is that all the stories had their own genre...none of them were exactly alike; some were romantic, others were funny...the list goes on. Overall, I really enjoyed this story; some of my favorites were Camp Cauldron, The Princess of Egypt Must Die, Spring Perfection, Off Balance, Dating After Dark (With Clowns)...I really enjoyed most of the stories. It was really hard for me to get into On a Field, Sable and Sometime though...they just weren't my sort of story. A lot of these stories made me think though; for example, in Camp Cauldron they attend a camp, and it really made me wish that I could've went to a camp as a child or even at 21 become a camp counselor. Unfortunately, the only camp my parents are willing to send me to is Fat Camp (and not to be a camp counselor either)!! I really enjoyed reading this book, and I would definitely recommend it to other people, especially during the Spring. Before I read this anthology, I was only familiar with Leslie DuBois' work, so it was nice to see what the other authors were like. I must admit though, while I was waiting for this book to come out, I did some research on author, Tawny Stokes, who wrote "Dating After Dark (With Clowns) and I wouldn't mind reading more of her...also, it's a huge plus in my book that she's an aspiring Screenwriter; it's nice to know of other aspiring screenwriters besides my classmates sometimes. This is a great book, and you do NOT want to miss out on it!!!

I downloaded this book because I saw it mentioned on Amanda Brice's website, cuz I love her books and I've been looking for it every day for the past month. I'm really glad I fouind it!

This book contains 13 stories, all of them totally different. And all of them very good. My favorites were "Barre Hoping @ Midnight", "Potionate Love", "Camp Caludron" and "The Language of Flowers." But the others were awesome too!

Really enjoyed the stories in this book, especially Stephanie Dray's "The Princess of Egypt Must Die." I hope Ms. Dray uses this story as a kickstart for a full-length novel, because I can't wait to read more about Arsinoe. I loved her two previous historical fiction novels about Egypt, Song of the Nile and Lily of the Nile.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This anthology of thirteen short stories will be a sure winner for lovers of YA romance. I certainly wish I could rate the individual stories for there were 2 Star doozies. Nearly every story offers an enchanting view of teenage budding romance or a teen facing a paranormal event.

Camp Cauldron -- This one reminded me slightly of the Perry Jackson series intertwined with Harry Potter and the typical fall-in-love at summer camp story. The tone of writing is from a teen's perspective so be prepared for slang and pop culture references. I did appreciate the gradual falling in love piece to the story instead of instant ga-ga angsty daydreams.

Barre Hopping -- The story didn't offer me enough to feel anything toward the ballerina's "not-quite-boyfriend" so it lacked the suspenseful emotion of fearing toward the ballerina, her rival, or boyfriend. And the Midnight references were very tongue-in-cheek to being that story's Twilight. I likely would pass reading more about this character.

The Vanishing Spring -- This one was cute. I did appreciate the writer using that era's tone. For example, Eleanor was raised on a farm and her tone of speaking was PERFECT for that timeframe. It endeared me to the character and later when she's in the modern world. This is a simple n' quick story.

The Princess of Egypt Must Die -- This story is absolutely refreshing after reading the first three. Ms. Dray doesn't result to modern euphenisms or teenage slang; she does not dumb down her writing for a teenage audience. The morale of the story is an inspiration for a young female on the verge of adulthood, of learning when to shed the past to embrace a stronger future. I give this story along 5 stars and HOPE Ms. Dray chooses to write another young adult fiction.

Title: Eternal Spring
Author: Anthology; 13 Authors of Young Adult Genre
Format: PDF
Pages: 180

Eternal Spring is an anthology of stories written primarly for the Young Adult audience. Even so, as a 40 something, I found it to be quite a delightful read.

Camp Cauldron by Juli Alexander--Emma finds herself a counselor at a camp, for wayward witches. That's right, she' not your typical teenage girl. Emma has no hope of finding a boyfriend while taking care of children...or does she?

Emma's best friend Sophie gets caught sneaking out of the house to go out. This leads to Sophie becoming counselfor at "Smack Camp" (Spring Supplemental Magic Management Camp) In trying to keep from telling Emma's dad why Emma is not going on her Spring Break trip as planned, Mom inadvertenly gets Emma into "Smack Camp." What a waste, thinks Emma.

Emma meets new kids, including Ian, a counselor for the first time also. Camp Cauldron takes us through some hnilarious and somewhat sad scenarios of kids with powers, and how using self-serving magic can have rather interesting results.

I would have to give Camp Cauldron a solid ****'s. It was laugh out loud funny, and also quite touching. I would definintely read more from author Juli Alexander.

Barre Hopping at Midnight by Amanda Brice. This is story 2.5 of the Dani Spevak Mystery Series. Barre Hopping is a delightful spoof of a sort of Twilight by Stephanie Myers. The blatent references of Midnight and Bethany Byers make for laugh out loud funny. Dani's boyfriend, not boyfriend, she's not sure what he really is to her, is playing the role of one of the two male leads from the book turned movie, "Midnight", and Dani knows he'll be busy.
