5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Miss This!! Dec 29 2009
Format:Hardcover
In a world akin to ancient China, the Empire of the Celestial Dragons rules. Twelve energy dragons and their human partners, the Dragoneye Lords, protect the empire. Well, eleven do ' the Mirror Dragon is missing.

Each year, 12 boys compete to become the next Dragoneye Apprentice, but the Dragon will choose just one. No one expects crippled Eon to win, but he has two pivotal secrets. First, he possesses the rare ability to see all of the energy dragons, rather than just one. And second, Eon is a girl.

If Eona is discovered, she will be executed immediately.

And when the Mirror Dragon suddenly reappears, after being absent for centuries, it chooses her.

Why has she been chosen? Will she be able to prevent the chief Dragoneye from overthrowing the Emperor? And what will happen if Eona is discovered, especially now that she has befriended the Emperor's son?

This book is fantastic!! It was published in Australia as an adult novel, and can be read by adults or teens. The medieval fantasy is great, and will appeal to fans of Tamora Pierce.

But there are many layers to this story, about self-awareness and power among other things. A fast-paced plot and a hint of romance will keep you turning pages late into the night!

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too Jan. 3 2009
Format:Hardcover
This book was spectacular! I really enjoyed reading it, very addicting. The story takes place in a sort of Asian themed world. Although the world itself is purely created by the author, Goodman did mirror some of the past elements of Asian culture and society, which I thought was a wonderful addition to the overall setting. Beautiful descriptions!

The plot, while steady throughout the novel, seemed to fly by the last quarter or so! There was some predictability, and I was frustrated with Eon/a for not figuring it out earlier when it's so blatantly obvious! For a fairly smart boy/girl, she was considerably dense when it came to this aspect!

Despite my frustrations, it did play out nicely within the plot, and while I became increasingly frustrated in this one element of the story I totally missed the obviousness of another! But perhaps that is what Goodman had planned all along.

The characters were all fascinating and well-developed. My favorites had to be Lady Dela, Ryko, and Chart.

Goodman's writing is filled with rich details! I loved the descriptive elements! Did I mention that already!?

Can I just say that I really had no idea what a eunuch was and not come across as ignorant? I actually learned a thing or two while reading EON: DRAGONEYE REBORN.

My only complaint is the ending - total cliffhanger. I need the next book, like now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Story Line Dec 22 2013
Format:Paperback
This book captured my imagination and twists many ideas between duality. The push and pull of masculine and feminine energy, the powers of rank in society, and the human spirit to push forward to survive.

The author gives enough detail to describe elements so that you can picture it, and enough sub plot to keep her reader hooked.

I enjoyed it and will definitely be reading the sequel.

For other readers negative comments, the main character is thrust into many scenarios that she has never been exposed to quickly and has to adapt, while being controlled by her circumstance or her indentured rank.

While the general idea and premise for the story was interesting, I found this book difficult to get into, mostly because I (personally) found the main character almost impossible to connect with or care about. Now, this is an entirely personal problem, so naturally if you're interested in the book my personal apathy toward the character shouldn't disuade you. However, I might recommend definitely reading the sample chapters of the book before buying it - just to get a sense of whether or not you'll like Eon.

Anyway, my basic problem with Eon was that he/she was a little too obviously and deliberately obtuse, to the point that I felt like the character was being made purposefully stupid in order to draw out the plot longer. There are lots of books where readers know more than the character about what's going on, and usually this serves to heighten the sense of worry and suspense over whether the character will figure everything out in time or not. In this case, I thought the "subtle" hints were way, way too obvious and that a character with the amount of average intelligence that Eon is presented to have should have been able to figure out the "mysteries" in the novel a little quicker. Or at least there should have been SOME connections being made. Instead, Eon would "notice" things in the narrative but completely fail to connect them with all the other things he/she had noticed before and therefore also fail to get some vague idea of what might possibly be going on.

Also, I felt some things weren't explained quite enough, and so when Eon made some of his/her decisions, they felt like they came absolutely out of nowhere.
