    • “Even a cornered rabbit will fight with teeth and claws.” If you like the sound of really good fantasy that is steeped in a unique blend of Chinese and Japanese mythology, the world Alison Goodman has created should be next on your list. Vivid, colourful and highly imaginative. But you might want to make sure you have the even more amazing sequel lined up for when you're done.How refreshing it is to be completely surprised by a story, to not be able to predict where the plot will take me nex [...]

    • I hardly ever read straightforward fantasy, but every once in awhile a book comes along that blows right past all my usual objections to become a new favorite. 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.For years, 16-year-old Eon has been training to be a Dragoneye apprentice, a coveted position in which the student serves as the condu [...]

    • When I first started this book, I was like,Then I read some more, and I became more like this:Thankfully, before I went completely bald, the shit hit the fan, and it was THE END. This book and I have a long and complicated history. About two years ago, a friend from the UK was visiting and she left behind a book called The Two Pearls of Wisdom. She told me I HAD to read it, and as I tend to do with most paperbacks, I shoved it in the black hole I call a bookcase and promptly forgot it existed.Fa [...]

    • Well, I hope you're happy Tatiana, Penny and everyone else who convinced me to read this book. I hope you're REAL happy!They probably look something like this right now!I just spent the last five hours reading this book and freaking the hell out. I swear the tension, anxiety and heart palpitations did not stop until the last page. Right up to the end I was clutching my chest like some kind of heart patient in desperate need of a quadruple bypass.The big themes in this novel centre on sexuality, [...]

    • As seen on The ReadventurerWhen it comes to fantasy, I am a fan of the softer, girlier type, heavy on romance and relationships and lighter on mythology, magic and dragons. That's why it is such a surprise I liked this book so much, because Eon: Dragoneye Reborn is very mythology-oriented and prone to frequent info-dumping (especially in the beginning).At first, the story is reminiscent of Alanna: The First Adventure. Eon(a) is a 16-year old girl who pretends to be a 12-year old boy in order to [...]

    • Larger graph if you can't read it:here . A Few More Points: *If you want someone to seem like a villain, do NOT make them taste like a creamsicle when you kiss them. Vanilla and orange=AWESOME.*How DARE you end a book at that point! (just kidding, Ms. Goodman. You hooked me for the next one)*I hope that Chart is part of book two. When he says "Sluuuuut" to Irsa, I laughed out loud at the audiobook. (One high point of the audio version which, overall, left a lot to be desired)

    • I was really struggling between 1 and 2 stars for this one so I'm compromising with 1.5 stars.

    • Aaaaahhhh, this was good though not without faults, and I think anyone who reads Eon will know exactly why I deducted a star. You will figure out early on why Eon is struggling, and it'll drive you crazy until she figures it out. The fact that Eon takes forever to realize the "big secret" was not something that ruined my enjoyment completely, but it definitely dampened a story that could have been perfect.I started this book hot off the tail of Seraphina, not even realizing until I started writ [...]

      I need to read the second book like RIGHT NOW!!! I'm so mad that I don't own it because I literally want to start reading it immediately.

    • I'll start with the good newsThis book is very well written. The landscapes are lush and exotic. The cities, streets, buildings and rooms are described in such easy, elegant detail that you just SEE them, without having to pause to build the images in your mind. The characters were equally well formed. Goodman didn't flood us with too many people and those she did introduce were memorable and well cast. No one was one dimensional, everyone had depth, everyone seemed to draw an emotion from me. A [...]

    • Power. Glory. Honor. Reliability. Trust. Strength. Are these traits simply attributed to our gender? Does our gender determine who we are as people or who we can become as a person? For centuries women have struggled to pry themselves from underneath man's suppressive boot to claim their equality. For centuries being a woman was thought to mean you were weak, unable to defend yourself, better off in the kitchens. This is the world 16 year-old Eon(a) lives in. She lives in an Asian culture were w [...]

      I have a love-hate relationship with this book. In the end I'm glad(??) that i read itEon has grew up his entire life having a single thought literarlly beaten into his head "everything feminine is bad". Emotions are feminine therefore Eon should not feel. 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. My main issue with this book is this:If Eon had felt more of an inclination to male characteris [...]

    • Enjoyable and solid story, with excellent worldbuilding and interesting magic system - plus dragons! This book also falls into that somewhat narrow category of YA fantasy suitable for older readers that doesn't have a romantic sub-plot. Honestly, the characters in this story are far too busy keeping mortal secrets and involving themselves in various plots to worry about romance.The pacing of the story is very good and I found it quite tense in many places. It's an entertaining read given depth b [...]

      Creative storyline and a strong heroine. 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.I remember reading the blurb, realizing that the protagonist was a cross-dressing female, and said to myself "No." I've got nothing against it, it is just not a genre of storytelling that interests me. my experience with this genre [...]

    • Two and a half stars. It was okay, and I might get around to reading the second half. I should probably do so before giving an evaluation, as it appears it's more a duo than a stand-alone book. I enjoyed the pace of the first 75 or 100 pages, which some critics might label "useless worldbuilding." I felt like it was building the world Eon lived in, from the Master's house to the city, showing the different types of adversity faced, and setting up an 'overcome major adversity' plot. (view spoiler [...]

    • If I hadn’t been reading this book on a very expensive bit of technology, I would have hurled it against a wall. I believe my exact comment, upon reaching a particular moment of infamy towards the end was, and I quote, “what the fucking fuck was that fuckery?” I have all the feelings about this book. And so I share them. (Which is why you guys like me, don’t even try to lie).Right, so, this is a fantasy about a girl posing as a boy in not!ancient China, and she impresses bonds with an an [...]

    • Slow start but amazing ohh yes I mean, if you thought a girl with dragons was cool You haven't read about EONA Because first she was passing as a boyAnd then she becameControlling thisAnd right now, I'm downloading the sequel EonaAnd if you are mexican let me tell you this book will remind you of

    • *** 4 *** A buddy read with my homies at BB&B!This was one very beautifully written, very engaging, but very frustrating book of the Fantasy genre variety. The story takes you into a wonderfully created world, heavily Asian influenced, closest to the Chinese traditions during the feudal period, and the author has the perfect prose to make it feel authentic and real. We get to meet young Eon, a bond servant in the house of a one-time Dragoneye master who is preparing Eon to follow in his step [...]

    • If you, like me, have always wished that Tamora Pierce and Anne McCaffrey would finally admit their deep, abiding love for one another; make it official with a short ceremony in Massachusetts; then decide to start a family by adopting a fierce Asian baby, then I think you will fall in love with this book.This is the powerful story of Eon, a young candidate for apprentice Dragoneye. If he is selected, he will commune and share power with one of the twelve Dragons, which are energy based creatures [...]

    • AMAZING! Alison Goodman creates a fully-realized world filled with dragons, magic, ancient customs, and political warfare. Our main character is Eon, a candidate to become apprentice dragoneye, an honour bestowed to only the worthiest of men. TWIST – Eon, is actually Eona, a 16 year old girl, who if she is found out, will be killed.Initial thoughts:1. The plot is amazing! Eon is faced with obstacle after obstacle. When you think it couldn't get worse, it does!2. The backstory, and mythology is [...]

    • The success of the Harry Potter series with both children and adults has opened a lot of doors in the fantasy genre. Publishers have issued a plethora of a new series and stories intended to capture the imagination and passion of readers in a simliar way to the stories of the young boy wizard. While a lot of these new fantasy stories have imitated what J.K. Rowling did with the Harry Potter novels, very few of them have really set the imagination on fire with an new, fascinating fantasy universe [...]

    • I could not stop him. He was my emperor. My lord. My master. His will was mine.No. Never again. My will was my own. How refreshing this was.In Eon, every year a different Dragoneye becomes the ascendant, and an apprentice is chosen by the dragon. A Dragoneye is the human link to an energy dragon's power.There's the Ox Dragon, Goat Dragon, Tiger Dragon, Monkey Dragon, Rabbit Dragon, Rooster Dragon, Snake Dragon, Dog Dragon, Rat Dragon, Pig Dragon, Horse Dragon and Dragon Dragon (Mirror Dragon).

      3.5 starsI have a feeling I will be telling my grandchildren long stories about my struggles with this book. Eon (both the book and the character) did not make it easy for me to like them, oh no. Instead, I constantly had to battle my desire to abandon them in favor of something easier to read, or a more likable heroine at the very least.Sometimes, when a book is extremely popular and well-loved by everyone in the known universe and possibly beyond, I dig in my heels and simply refuse to read it [...]

    • I think a copy of Eon ought to be on most school library bookshelves. It's an interesting exploration of gender roles and expectations, about finding your true self and that ineffable identity all of us have somewhere beneath the surface. Gender and identity are explored from different angles with the main story and one intertwining side character. Eon deals with the pressure of pretending to be something he isn't, of all the things he gave up when the choice to pretend to be a boy was made for [...]

      Ultimately? Nope nope nope, I did not enjoy this book. BUT! It had so much going for it, that I feel awfully guilty for not adoring it. It ticked so many of my "I-would-like-to-read-a-fantasy-book-about-this" boxes and, believe me, I was pretty gutted when I felt myself napping between chapters. Between words. WHILE READING. GAH. I was ridiculously bored. But first! Let's list good things!:THINGS I REALLY LIKED:+ um, DRAGONS, okay?! DRAONGS!I love me some dragons, even though these were more lik [...]

      I wanted to love it, but I just couldn't. The lack of explanations just killed it for me. This book had no setting, though I'm assuming it's China. But it's never mentioned, and to me that's a pretty fundamental aspect of a book. The plot was really quite cool and exciting once you got more into the book, but it took me forever to get there because it was pretty slow and I kept having to reread things to try and understand what was going on. Not sure if I'll end up picking up book 2.

    • This is a pretty chunky book for young adult but it was a fairly easy read. Fast paced and frequently very tense, it kept this reader engrossed for some good quality reading time whilst flying half way round the world.The world building was very Oriental which fitted well with the theme of dragons. These were rather amazing dragons too and the world around them was very well thought out. The main character is a girl pretending to be a boy so there is a lot of information about gender roles but I [...]

    • I am a huge dum-dum.During the five years I worked for Barnes & Noble, I got to read quite a few books gratis. Like, not only would we get to check out books (and Nooks! with unlimited ebooks!) from the store like it was a frickin' library, but we also got ARCs and pre-publication copies (the ones that have been copy-edited) of books so we could talk them up to customers. I will admit that I took shameless advantage of all of these privileges, and I miss them quite a lot (although I do NOT m [...]

    • Back when this book was released I had abandoned it after some 50 pages because it had reminded me on another dragon-book which I found much better ( Nihal of the Land of the Wind), now after giving it another chance I must admit that it differs a lot from the other one, though they do have some obvious parallels. I did enjoy it and I will read the sequel but there were many aspects of the book that irked me. What I liked:The characters. There was just the right amount of different characters in [...]

    • “You are wrong when you say there is no power in being a woman. When I think of my mother and the women in my tribe, and the hidden women in the harem, I know there are many types of power in this worldI found power in accepting the truth of who I am. It may not be a truth that others can accept, but I cannot live any other way. How would it be to live a lie every minute of your life? I don't think I could do it.” Having really enjoyed Goodman’s The Dark Days Club, I was curious to try ano [...]
