Eona by Alison Goodman









Book 2 (Book 1: Eon: Dragoneye Reborn)


Novel Summation:

 Eon is now Eona, the Mirror Dragoneye, on the run (with Ryko and Lady Dela) from High Lord Sethon’s army. She is also struggling to bear the anguish of the ten dragons whose Dragoneyes were murdered by Lord Ido; as they focus their grief through her, she becomes a dangerous conduit for their power. The three renegades are on a quest for two things: first, the black folio, stolen by the drug-riddled Dillon. And then they must also find Kygo, the young Pearl Emperor, who needs Eona’s power and the black folio if he is to wrest back his throne from the self-styled “Emperor” Sethon …

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was perhaps equally as enjoyable or even better than the first book. In the first book we are introduced to a world of dragons. The power of the dragons are harnessed through their chosen dragoneyes to control the troubles of the earth (natural disasters). At the end of the first book 10 of the dragoneyes were killed leaving on Eona and the Rat dragon’s dragoneye (Ido) and apprentice (Dillon) left. The book was incredibly well written and once again the reader is captured in the culture and world that the author creates. Eona was less frustrating as a character this time. She finally realizes that she has the power to make a difference. She continues on her journey on discovering the limitations of that power and how not to abuse it. I felt really sorry for Dillon. He has an important role since he has the black folio but not much about him was told. He was merely a prop within the story. Ryoka was also frustrating for he never forgave Eona for being a girl and he spends the majority of the book criticizing Eona’s actions instead of showing support that she needs. In terms of Ido we get a lot more character development. In my view he always remains the same person we just see a range of his character traits. Kygo didn’t do much for me as a character. As a character he was a strong man who would do anything for his empire and he was good for a romantic interest but he didn’t really show much otherwise. I loved the romantic aspect of the books and found it to be wonderfully exciting to read. At one point in the book I could not stop reading. In terms of plot there isn’t a really strong story, not too much happens, but a lot still does happen. What I mean to say is that it can be summed up into 3 parts, which I won’t spoil. I would definitely recommend this book.
