By Jessica Strider TOP 500 REVIEWER on Feb. 10 2011
Format: Paperback
Pros: engaging, combines new age beliefs with fantasy world magic, protagonist stays in character

Cons: major plot twist is very obvious

Eon's ability to see all 11 energy dragons is awarding her the chance to become the apprentice of the Rat Dragon, ascendant this year. But women aren't allowed to be Dragoneyes, so she must hide her gender. When the choosing ceremony goes awry and the long lost Mirror Dragon returns, she is plunged into mess of political intrigue she is ill equipped to handle.

Eon is an engaging read that's hard to put down. The girl goes from crisis to crisis as she's thrust into the heart of palace politics while trying to keep several important secrets.

The magic of this fantasy world is based heavily on new age beliefs. The chakras are used to focus chi, while the dragon mythology is the Chinese zodiac. Goodman manages to take these familiar concepts and makes them unique by molding them to the energy dragons, through whom natural phenomenon can be controlled.

Modern readers will quickly figure out the plot twist regarding the truth of the Mirror Dragon. While it is in character for Eon to misunderstand what is happening, it is frustrating as a reader to see how she's missing something that to us is so obvious. However, I was impressed that the author resisted the urge to give Eon a modern mindset. She is very much a product of her world, which is as it should be.

I found Eon a fascinating character, even while I didn't always like her decisions. She's caught in a difficult position where if it's learned she's a woman, her life and that of her master and servant, are forfeit. As more and more people put their faith in her power her position becomes even more desperate.

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!

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.

By T. Johnson on 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.
