YA Novel: Eternal by H.G. Nadel Review



Los Angeles, CA: In her debut novel, ETERNAL (Sourced Media Books; available in PBK and ebook formats), admired acting teacher H.G. Nadel creates a vivid romantic thriller surrounding a twelfth-century French medieval philosopher and a twenty-first--century tortured scientist who resurrect a romance--and all the demons belonging to it.

The first in a trilogy, ETERNAL introduces eighteen-year-old science prodigy Julia Jones, who is still recovering from the death of her mother and is using her summer internship to help her move on from her loss.  After she saves the life of her boss during a freak accident, strange things start to happen.  Readers will be drawn into the story of real-life, star-crossed lovers Pierre Abelard, twelfth-century French philosopher and poet, and his breathtaking, brilliant, beloved Heloise.

"We are so excited to be publishing Eternal.  HG Nadel is so beloved as an acting teacher and we feel confident that her rapport with teens comes through in her writing as well,” says Amy Osmond Cook, Publisher of Sourced Media Books. Packed with shocking twists and otherworldly turns, ETERNAL keeps readers riveted and wondering about the true nature of the scientist’s experiments and  the true identity of Julia’s tormentors. 
Nadel’s vast knowledge of drama, her considerable expertise working with children and young adults, and her sense of humanity allow her to share stories that touch the hearts and souls of readers everywhere.

H. G. Nadel was born in Paris and has spent most of her adult life in the United States. She began her professional career as a SAG/AFTRA agent and later started Kids Acting School, a successful acting school in Orange County, California. Nadel has written numerous screenplays, but her first love is novel writing.  Her expertise in young adult drama has allowed her to write captivating coming-of-age stories in both English and French.

The 411 by Maria:

We meet Julia Jones, an 17 year old scientist who is doing an internship with Dr. Caleb Bertel.  She is smart and dedicated to helping Dr. Bertel on their not unlike Dr. Frankenstein experimental tactics.

Dr. Bertel is nearly killed when electrocuted and Julia brings him back to life. Suddenly the doctor has disappeared, Julia starts receiving threats and she is being followed. 21 year old police officer Austin Moore is assigned to the case and together they try to figure out the bizarre reappearance and disappearance of Dr. Bertel.

Julia and Austin are also having the same dream where they see each other as Heloise d'Argenteuil and Pierre Abelard french lovers who were savagely torn apart many, many, many years ago.

Great quick story that covers all genres of science fiction, romance, mystery, drama.  Perfect for ages 13 and up. There is quick kissing but that is about it.
