Publisher's Summary

Once she was Eon, a girl disguised as a boy, risking her life for the chance to become a Dragoneye apprentice. Now she is Eona, the Mirror Dragoneye, her country’s savior — but she has an even more dangerous secret. She cannot control her power. Each time she tries to bond with her Mirror Dragon, she becomes a conduit for the ten spirit dragons whose Dragoneyes were murdered by Lord Ido. Their anguish floods through her, twisting her ability into a force that destroys the land and its people. And another force of destruction is on her trail. Along with Ryko and Lady Dela, Eona is on the run from High Lord Sethon’s army. Sethon has declared himself Emperor. In order to stop him, the renegades must find Kygo, the young Pearl Emperor, who needs Eona’s power if he is to wrest back his throne.
Eona, with its pulse-pounding drama, thrilling fight scenes, sizzling tension — and many surprises — brings to a close an epic story.

Surprisingly disappointing!!!

What disappointed you about Eona?

This book was nothing like book one which set up a great beginning to an intriguing story.


What was most disappointing about Alison Goodman’s story?

The whole focus of this story seemed to be the passionate love blossoming between Eona and the Emperor. If I wanted to read a romance novel, I would have purchased one.


What about Nancy Wu’s performance did you like?

She is a wonderful narrator and would shine with a better novel more suited to her obvious talent.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Eona?

Everything that had to do with Eona and the emperors sexual desires.


Any additional comments?

If you are going to write a follow-on novel in a series, make sure you maintain a fluid flow with the story line. This novel barely touched on the Dragon-eye persona and focused more on the romance and desire of two characters and threw in the repulsive desires of a villan for good measure. I will not purchase another book from this author.

Great Concept Falls Flat

Eona the sequel and conclusion to Eon was a great idea that in the end underwhelmed. In Eon we met Eona the last Mirror Dragoneye, a crippled girl posing as boy. On the run after the fall of the emperor by he's brothers coup along with Lord Ido, she must find a way to restore the rightful monarchy and save the dragons.

Eona is like a reflection of the first book as she is wanted as a boy so she is hiding as a girl. Unfortunately regardless of gender Eona keeps getting in her own way. In Eon she was frustratingly slow or maybe it was just how apparent the storyline was, but she displays cleverness at the speed of molasses. It seems Eona learned nothing from the first book since her fears and lack of communication was the root of most of her problems. I was really disappointed at the lack fighting in these books it seemed like a good setting for a strong female warrior, but wasn't. I found all the supporting characters way more interesting and likable than the lead.

I love the idea of this series. The set up was great. The world, asian lore, and influences are refreshing in the stacks of vampires, witches, and shifters. But with all the time and effort put into creating the Eona world, the heroine got left behind. The storyline was interesting but really what good is the plot or an intricately written world if your main character is annoying and ruining everything. What a waste.
