Goodman imbues all of your senses. Fans of various Asian cultures will either be delighted with Alison Goodman’s world or find flaws in it that come from a passionate love affair with the cultures she tries to emulate. Yeah, as a reader you’re forced to swallow some of the world building in weird fre with thick content, rebodn it’s never really that painful.
While Eon’s fright and denial of the burden placed on him were beautifully drawn, and only mildly irritating, it was his attempts to reach his dragon that truly tried my patience.
The story continues in Eona: The main thing that earned this book four stars is the sheer diversity of its mythos and characters. I hopefully find some fres in Eona: I was terribly hooked to this one.
Eon: Dragoneye reborn
I read the synopsis in disbelief and log on to Goodreads to see that my terrible suspicion is true. Usually, when I book infuriates me that much, I end up rating it not higher than 3 Stars, but it was very well written, very imaginative, and it made me totally emotionally invested, which is the hallmark of a good book to me.
I have to admit, at first I wasn’t too impressed by the pacing of this novel. I found power in accepting the truth of who I am. How refreshing it is to be completely surprised by a story, to not be able to predict where the plot will take me next, to not be bombarded with insta-love and cringy romance.
Eon struggles to accept her dual nature, but there are numerous other characters in the story that represent this struggle as well. Like, it was too easy. Generally, those have not been well-interpreted in books, particularly those written by Caucasian authors Studying the men and boys around her in order to emulate them.
Not everything was as it seemed and I was honestly surprised at some of the twists the story took, plus Goodman managed to create a villain that I couldn’t hate completely. One high point of the audio version which, overall, left a lot to be desired.
At first, the story is reminiscent of Alanna: It’s intensely layered and detailed for any novel, let alone YA. When Eon’s secret threatens to come to light, she and her allies are plunged into grave danger and a deadly struggle for the Imperial throne. Preview — Eon by Alison Goodman. Eon really excels at world building. The main character is a girl pretending to be a boy so there is a lot of information about gender roles but I This is a pretty chunky book for young adult but it was a fairly easy read.

Eon is not an easy character to like. It’s strange reading a book based on the Far East where the characters have Western sounding names.
This is definitely a novel for mature young adult fans because of the situations and themes explored with transgendered characters, eunuchs, forced intimacy, and physical assault. I think it’s one of those books that will make you a better person if you read it young enough. There is some emotional angst, but it is not unbearable: Actually I thiink it was only anger. Absolutely no one should desire you.
It doesn’t help that I highly disliked all the characters in the live-action adaptations either, but I digress. And by the end of the novel, I felt myself very excited for the sequel. That’s why it is such a surprise I liked this book so much, because Eon: We don’t get too deep a glimpse into their character, what makes them tick, or get more of their personality besides the superficial. I can not help but to sit back and admire the amount of research Alison Goodman had done to describe Eona’s world.
I’m so glad I stuck with it though, because after the first seventy pages I suddenly couldn’t put it down. This combined with the fantasy aspect of the dragons – which I didn’t really expect to love that much – was superb.

View all 6 comments. I felt that the writing was smooth with rich descriptions and powerful characters. I loved how it all turned out in the end for Eona as a character. The secondary character of Lady Dela, who is considered dual gendered with born male with female energies, deals with the public side and some of the possible social consequences of different gender identity.
There was so much political intrigue in the Dragoneye council that I could literally feel the tension as I was reading.
Read The Strange Case of Dr. I will recommend this to all those who love the Fantasy genre and some more lyrical writing. Weak, easy to manipulate and intimidate, overall rather spineless, not very bright, at times overdramatic.
It makes sense within the context of the book, since Eona never really get to become too close to anyone, for fear of revealing who she is.
