Eona: By Alison Goodman



Eon has been revealed as Eona, the first female Dragoneye in hundreds of years. Along with fellow rebels Ryko and Lady Dela, she is on the run from High Lord Sethon's army. The renegades are on a quest for the black folio, stolen by the drug-riddled Dillon; 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 selfstyled "Emperor" Sethon. Through it all, Eona must come to terms with her new Dragoneye identity and power - and learn to bear the anguish of the ten dragons whose Dragoneyes were murdered. As they focus their power through her, she becomes a dangerous conduit for their plans. . . .

Eona, with its pulse-pounding drama and romance, its unforgettable fight scenes, and its surprises, is the conclusion to an epic only Alison Goodman could create.


If you were a fan of Eon, then you’ll absolutely be blown away by Eona.

While Eon was full of deception and struggles for power, in my opinion it still lacked both action and magic. This is certainly not the case in Eona. Eona is filled to the brim with non-stop action, deception, magic, and even a little romance thrown in for good measure.

The characters are strong and dynamic. And while I didn’t get to see as much as I’d like of some of my favorite characters from Eon (such as Lady Dela, Ryko, and Chart), readers will be introduced with much greater detail into the lives of Ido, Kygo, and Yuso, making an odd yet colorful assortment of characters.

Besides that, Eona is faced with numerous moral and ethical dilemmas that both move the story forward as well as shape Eona into an almost entirely new character from the timid yet hard working girl hiding as boy in Eon.

This, plus the action, magic, and high level of deception and intrigue make Eona a fantastic book that will be sure to captivate even the most hesitant of readers.
