Product Description

Review

"Author Alison Goodman proceeds to spin a riveting tale that will hold the interest of any reader... It's a lively and colourful read. One that's highly recommended." - Montreal Gazette

"The author's plotting is elaborate, smart and capable of taking the audience by surprise. Enthralled readers will be hard-pressed to wait for the story's second half." - Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A mesmerizing story, a world so richly imagined that it feels real. No detail is overlooked, from the smallest sensory description to the fascinating mythos of the elemental dragons. Entangled politics and fierce battle scenes provide a pulse-quickening pace, while the intriguing characters add interest and depth. Readers will clamor for the sequel." - Booklist, starred review

"Fast-paced excitement carries Eon through this tension-packed adventure, where victory can only come with self-knowledge. This adventure, filled with intrigue, friendships, combat and magical allies, is a winner." - Kirkus Reviews

"A refreshing change from the generic. This intelligent, vividly written tale grips from the first page." - The Times, London

"Alison Goodman has created a wonderfully well-rounded story in this, the first of a duology set in a faux Asian world. [Eon] deftly straddles the young adult and adult market. This coming of age story sports enough action and intrigue to keep the reader galloping along through Eona's trials and tribulations." - Courier Mail, Australia

"Fans of Tamora Pierce and Garth Nix will be riveted by this fast-paced gender-bending fantasy. Goodman's rousing mix of swordplay, magic, adventure, and Asian astrology is inventive and enthralling." - Parents Express

"Goodman has produced an action-packed, well-plotted and acutely imagined fantasy that draws on the popularity of such films as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Anyone who enjoys kung-fu movies will devour this book." - The Age, Australia

"Eon walks the tightrope between adult and child with consummate skill, immersing you in the atmosphere one minute and exciting you with intrigue and thrills the next, while all the time making Eon constantly reassess who are her allies and enemies right through to the cliffhanger finale. If part one of this story is anything to go by, part two is going to be a cracker, and I for one, cannot wait for it." - Sci-Fi London

"The girl-in-disguise plot gets interesting added twists and the blended Asian atmosphere adds plenty of color, combining to make an entertaining adventure." - LOCUS Magazine

"This complex, richly envisioned tale will appeal to fantasy lovers of all ages. Incorporating elements of the hero’s quest with closely guarded secrets, ancient texts, mythical beasts and compellingly realistic political machinations, Goodman has created a gem. The action carries readers on a wild ride as Eon attempts to balance doing what is right with keeping herself alive against mounting odds. A richly developed historical and cultural background combined with turbulent current affairs makes this is more then a coming of age tale, this is fantasy writing at its best." - Monsters & Critics

"I loved this book. You will be drawn into Eon's struggle from the first page. The story contains an epic battle of good versus evil with the fate of the kingdom depending on an unlikely and unprepared hero that you can't help but love. This is a super young adult offering that other ages will love as well." - Armchair Interviews

"An intensely compelling read. Based off of Chinese and Japanese myths and legends, it is an exhilarating blend of mystery, suspense, and foreign culture and habits that will engross and entertain readers to no end. The ending is heart stopping, and the complete cliff hanger will most certainly leave readers yearning for the conclusion of this smart and drama filled duet in the next book--whose title is too much a spoiler to reveal yet, but hopes to be just as riveting and breathtaking." - The Compulsive Reader

"Eon: Dragoneye Reborn is a richly detailed fantasy that will appeal to anyone who loves stories of exotic lands, court intrigue, interesting characters, power struggles, secrets, and personal heroism." - Wands and Worlds Review --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

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.

By K. Edwards on 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!

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.
