: Eon (): Alison Goodman: Books
Not every YA novel has cross-dressers, transsexuals and eunuchs in it! I loved how it all turned out dragonsye the end for Eona as a character.
Lover reviews IdoxEona forever! Set up a giveaway. How old is your kid? Families can talk about European- and Asian-influenced fantasy. Halflings—half human, half dragon spirit—are despised throughout the Empire of the Celestial Dragons. It was so cool and a different take on dragons from the usual kind like in the Throne of Glass series. Eeborn just spent the last five hours reading this book and freaking the hell out.
I thought it was also revealed in victory. A battle is about the break out between the Emperor and one rebon his brothers, High Lord Sethon, who wishes to make a claim for the throne. I loved the de Wow, that was exactly the immersive, fast-paced fantasy I was looking for. Will Eona conquer all that doubt her?
The book is by no means perfect, however. And yes, yes, I will attempt to put my thoughts down on paper at some point.
Aug 01, Lightreads rated it it was ok Shelves: The catastrophe at the end was a bit weird. If her and her dragkneye lives depend on keeping the secret of her sex, it’s surprising to me that she is given so few details of life after choosing that would help prevent accidental disclosure. The story takes you into a wonderfully created world, heavily Asian influenced, closest to the Chinese traditions during the feudal period, and the author ddagoneye the perfect prose to make it feel authentic and real.
Eleven mighty Lords with their apprentices and the villian got rid of them quite easily.

She is on a quest to protect the Kygo from danger that has come to light and is trying to over seize the Emporer and all the land.
Is it OK for kids to read books outside their reading levels? S I could not stop him.
I also wish that the book could have delved into the mystery of why the Mirror Dragon was missing for years and what happened to the last Dragoneye. However, I’m witholding judgment in this case as Eona is still discovering her own feminine identity. This is impossible because his is the ascendant dragon, but the message is clear; the Mirror Dragon, the Keeper of Truth, holds power over all the other dragons. The reason I refer to Eon as a he, instead of a she, is because Goodman has skilfully portrayed him as a boy throughout the novel.
Rise of the Dragoneye, and Eon All the same book just published with different publishers Swordplay, dragon magic–and a hero with a desperate secret Twelve-year-old Eon has been in training for years. It was okay, and I might get around to reading the second half.
Eon –the award-winning crossover fantasy that soars! There aren’t any reviews yet. Rowling did with the Harry Potter novels, very few of them have really set the imagination on fire with an new, fascinating fantasy universe The success of the Harry Potter series with both children and adults has opened a lot of doors in the fantasy genre. Though with that said, the supporting characters are great, the plot is very interesting, and there are several very tense moments, if you managed to get into the story as I did.
Meanwhile, the country grows increasingly restless. It’s the equivalent of reading the Bible’s list of angel names, getting used to Raphael and Michael and Uriel and then all of a sudden This novel was very thorough, and I have to say that some of the details were lost on me.

Maybe there was too much info-dumping in this book. In Eon, every year a different Dragoneye becomes the ascendant, and an apprentice is chosen by the dragon.
