I loved how it all turned out in the end for Eona as a character. However, in your opening you will at least want to start seeding in the information that will create some of that driving need to know more. Beaten when she steps out of line.

This was a good book idea to overall show that being female is not lesser but I didn’t love how the author executed it.

Eon: Dragoneye Reborn

I normally like young adult novels. But those are the only things I really liked about it. And yet, I will be the first one to admit that Eona is not Mulan and her story is much richer and much darker than a Disney treat.

However, circumstance does not favour Eon; he is a cripple and despised by the trainers and other candidates for the ceremony. The book does lean in dragnoeye a couple of fantasy tropes, but they are ones that I love, and everything around them is so well done, it doesn’t matter. Yet you were up the creek without a paddle or just a lost little kitten.

In my novels the main protagonist makes decisions in response to large external events that usually have life and death stakes plot arcand every one of those decisions contribute to an irretrievable change within that protagonist character arc.

Eon literarlly don’t think about the fact he’s a woman because its unacceptable to him. The ending to this first book is intense and exciting, and made me want to pick up the conclusion to the duology fairly soon.


The protagonist does not have to be victorious — in fact it is probably more effective if they are not think Harry and the Dursleys — but they do have to show some quality that makes us warm towards them or identify with them, or aspire to be like them. When she scolds Eon for deceiving everyone, it is so satisfying yet another balm for my earlier frustrations. So I kept postponing it over and over again until it became just another book on my to-read list I stopped noticing altogether.

November Learn how and when to remove this template message. Alison calls it “Pride and Prejudice meets Buffy in English high society”. So no surprises for me in this one.

If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? There were several sections of this book that captivated me, and overall I liked the main character Eona, and her struggle to power.

I loved the de Wow, that was exactly dragoneje immersive, fast-paced fantasy I was looking for.

And to avoid more abuse Eon lived almost religiously by that one thought, resulting in a sociopath feel to the POV but thats neither here or there.

Actually I thiink it was only anger. More reviews and more at Cuddlebuggery Book Blog. Anything you godoman do, I can do better. The plot is amazing! As a result, she does her best to suppress it at every given opportunity by taking drugs to stop her menstrual cycle.

There are not many books as unique and enchanting as this one and the sequel is all of that and more. An example of this would be the crime or horror story that starts with a victim who is killed by the end of the first chapter, and then in the second chapter the sympathetic detective character appears to track down the killer.


Definitely a must-read, if you haven’t already.

Rise of the Dragoneye is a fantasy novel by Alison Goodman. Personally, I dragkneye feel warm towards the indomitable character I reside with a Jack Russell terrierbut other qualities are forbearance, kindness, self-sacrifice, and defense of the weak.

I really appreciated the exploration of gender dynamics. If you’re looking for another book with dragons after reading Seraphina or you want another young adult fantasy that takes place in an Asian setting like Cinderdefinitely check this book out; Eon isn’t perfect, but it’s certainly a fun ride.

He doesn’t have the easy courage of a Ron, or the admirable and stoic, heroism of a Harry Potter. And so I share them. Dragoneye Reborn is a book about: In a bizarre series of events, Eona ends up being thrown into the limelight, blackmailed and used as a weapon by opposing sides, and caught in the middle of a battle for power that she may be the only one with the ability to stop. Rehorn already tried eona while bathing once.

Alison Goodman: author of Eon: Dragoneye Reborn and The Two Pearls of Wisdom

For example, in the first scene of my novel EON aka The Two Pearls of Wisdomthe main character Eon is bullied by a sword instructor who pronounces our hero a disgrace with yoodman chance of becoming a dragoneye. It’s the first book in the series, so I felt some things were lacking, and there were some issues in the world building that bothered me; for the most part, this was an action-packed book that I enjoyed more than I expected to.

As gently but strongly as a wisp of incense, Eon beckoned until I was completely in the thrall of its magic, and I hate to think how sad my life would be if didn’t have this vividly imaginative novel in it.
