Pulse-pounding drama and sizzling tension brings the epic Eon duology to a shocking close

Eon is now Eona, the Mirror dragoneye, on the run (with Ryko and Lady dela) from High Lord Sethon’s army. She is also struggling to bear the anguish of the ten dragons whose dragoneyes were murdered by Lord Ido; as they focus their power through her, she becomes a dangerous conduit for their plans.

The three renegades are on a quest for two things: first, the black folio, stolen by the drug-riddled dillon. And then 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.

In addition to Eon and Eona, Alison Goodman is the author of Singing the Dogstar Blues, which received the Aurealis Award and was named an ALA Best Book for Young Adults. Alison lives in Melbourne, Australia.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mini review on GR! Mini review: Minor spoilers! Book 1 for Tome Topple Readathon challenge: Read a tome that is apart of a series. DNF Trigger warning: Mention of rape, misgendering a trans female, and mention of disability cured via magic. I was so excited to read this! Eon left off on a huge cliffhanger and I so wanted answers! Tome topple gave me the perfect chance to dive back into this series. Unfortunately I didn't like it. Lots of things started to erk me in the beginning. Particularly when Eona mentions how 'free' she feels now that she can use both of her legs. And her constant misgendering of Lady Dela. While this was present in Eon, I found it more annoying in Eona. I set the book down and decided to read up on some reviews. I had for the most part made up my mind on DNFing. Though I could've gone back to it depending on what I gleaned from the reviews I was reading. I was so angry when I found out about Ido! I knew that Eona gave him some feelings but I still don't think it excuses him raping her. Apparently Eona felt that it did. This new information really solidified my DNFing. I'm really surprised considering what a well loved series this is. Overall I didn't enjoy this. I recommend the authors latest series rather than Eon.

My absolute favourite book to this day, Goodman combines ancient mythology, history, and fantasy with a unique story that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I absolutely love this book and have read it 5 times!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from !!!! In a word ... AMAZING!! I had high expectations for this series but the first book was a little bit of a let down. It was good, but not what i was expecting. This one on the other hand was non stop, and i loved it. Eona was a much better character than boring eon, and i ended up loving Ido!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intense Just...wow, the places where this book has gone! Seriously, you need to read it for yourself to find out, but let's just say that the world, characters, etc. are so unique and well-preserved, and some things are just...wow, mind-blowing!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unoriginal When I read Eon I became interested in the world. Asian culture is commonly used as a stepping stone for fantasy books, but less common are books actually set in Asia. Were the characters particularly interesting or deep? No, not really. Was the story inventive? No again. But the world-building gave me hope for this series. I thought maybe Goodman was going somewhere with it. But sadly, no. Eona doubles down on the Mulan story, but doesn't bring anything new to it. I'm not invested in these people. While I appreciate the diversity shown in the book, there needs to be an interesting story to go along with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good read A good story but some of the characters didn't have much in the way of "on page" chemistry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epic Finale To A Complex World Gah! This ending was insane! Definitely a climax of epic proportions. The story was long, definitely a journey for every character involved, but it was never dull and always full of surprises. So many I could barely keep up at times, but this is a complex world with true conflict and dangers that put characters on a knife's edge. The most rewarding part of this story (and there was a lot) was the growth and challenges many of the characters faced. They all grew and experienced different emotions, both good and bad. Nowhere is this more prominent than with Eona, our hero and a girl continually torn between duty, honour, truth, and ambition. She was on a roller coaster, always growing and changing, and while she made choices I questioned, I was constantly on her side, cheering her on. There were tons of secrets revealed about the world and the dragons, leading to a climax worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster. Honestly, I was biting my nails to the very last page, never knowing what to expect. This was a breathtaking, emotional journey, and I couldn't have been happier to experience this story. A definite recommend for anyone looking for a unique, complex, YA fantasy read!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay Slightly better than the last. Loved the cover, but I still wasn't as impressed as I expected to be with the contents.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Sequel! It's very refreshing to see a novel like this that manages to seamlessly integrate many topics that aren't traditionally seen in literature. You have a -previously- crippled main character who isn't perfect from the get-go, and instead has to work hard towards achieving her own goal. In addition there are great representations of Chinese and Japanese culture and even a prominent trans character whose existence in the story isn't confined to her identity. The plot was very interesting and even though it did have the traditional romance that is usually present in most YA stories, the romance was surprisingly tolerable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful sequel to wrap up an awesome story As expected after reading Eon, Eona was a great read. It had me on the edge of my chair the whole time, wherever I happened to be reading - I couldn't put it down until I was done. Excellently written and executed. If you've read and enjoyed Eon, then reading Eona is a must.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Girl, a dragon, and a civil war. Eona is the first Mirror Dragoneye in centuries – powerful, yet untrained. Caught in the middle of a civil war, her powers are coveted by both sides, and her past is the key to victory or total destruction. To save her country she will have to work with her greatest enemy and perhaps forfeit both the power of her dragon, and the life of the man she loves. While not set in Ancient China, the book feels like a missing chapter in Chinese history. The ancient cities and customs are mirror of Imperial China, as are the gender roles and many of the cultural beliefs. Eona is an absolute page turner from beginning to end – a mystery wrapped in a puzzle and surrounded by magic and a war of succession. The struggles and emotions seem real, the battle scenes are mesmerizing in their execution, and the whole novel is richly detailed – truly this is a teen novel that adults will also enjoy. Readers new to Eona’s story must start with the first novel in the duology, Eon, as the author wastes no time recapping events from the previous story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Awesome!! http://dazzlingreads.blogspot.com/ I think my review on Eon left things pretty clear about how I feel about the book. Well, After reading Eona things have changed. Indeed, if before I thought that the world the author created delighted me in every single way, that changed. If I said that I loved the characters beyond the walls of my heart, that also changed, and If I said that Eon was one of the best things I have ever read, well yeah, that changed too. Because this was a freakingly-awesome-beyond-understanding-not-of-this-world kind of book!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now, everything I thought about Eona goes beyond understanding with Eona! I just love it way too much!! Every single thing previously said in my review of Eon are now way too little to express how magnificent Eona was! Alison Goodman surprised me times a million with this book. She is absolutely someone full of wisdom. If I said before that I was proud to have read Eon, now I say that I am immensely grateful Alison Goodman wrote these books! There are no words good enough to describe how much I love this read. Saying that Eona left a mark in my soul is an understatement because it simply took over it. Eona was terrible and beautiful from beginning to end. The greed (or nature?) of man illustrated in this book just left me thinking about it for so long every time I turned a page. All this dilemma about keeping of giving up power. Who can we trust when we have power? can we trust at all? or are we damned to betrayal? Is it power always achieve by hurting others? and so many many more questions that Eona brings up. Some questions are answered some are not, but most important, some of them are for you to learn and discover the answer by yourself. And oh Lord! The ending of Eona is one of the best endings ever! If you haven't read this duology you are really missing one of the best stories in YA fiction! You MUST read these book. They are incredibly good! As I said, there is no way to described it. You must experience it. Read it, and discover by yourself the limitless love you can feel towards a book!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Sequel After discovering that the Mirror Dragon was actually a female, and revealing that she herself is also female, Eona is now on the run with the resistance. High Lord Sethon has taken over the empire, and has the only remaining Dragoneye - evil Lord Ido - in captivity. Now Eona, Ryko and Dela must overcome insurmountable odds and find the true heir to the throne so that they can take back the empire from Sethon. But can an untrained Dragoneye and a small number of resistance fighters really accomplish such a grand feat without any assistance? In Eona: The Last Dragoneye, Alison Goodman continues to build on the rich and layered universe that she created in Eon, the first book in the Dragoneye series. This time Eona is away from the palace and her journey takes us through a variety of settings in the Empire. The story starts out with plenty of action right off the bat, and as Eona and her friends travel across the countryside there are many battles along the way. Despite all the battles and action scenes, I did find the middle of the story a bit long and slow to get through. There is a nice twist that I wasn't expecting at the end, and I was happy with where the story left off. The characters in Eona are darker and possibly less likable than they were in EON, but with the Empire having fallen, times are harder, and as they are hunted by rebels at every turn, it makes sense that they would have to develop their darker sides in order to survive the hardships that seem to be following them. Many interesting gender issues are touched upon, as Eona who spent the first novel desperately trying to pass herself off as male has to learn to play the role of a woman, and Dela who spent the first novel as a man presenting himself as a woman is now playing the role of a man. The struggle between ultimate power and right and wrong is also explored in detail, which always makes for fascinating reading. While not quite as captivating as Eon, Eona is an enjoyable read, and closes Eona's story satisfactorily.
