A few days ago ( Maybe years when your reading this but in that case, hi future! ) I was looking through the colletion of dragon books amazon had to offer because i was feeling very droganey today lol and stumbled upon the cover art. I was very intrigued at the mysterious fantasy looking cover. I decided to give it a try. at first it was a little confusing with the chinese-style…uh…i dont know…feeling…? And yea the plotting was kind of hard to get into because of the abundant amount of characters to keep track of and it was a little complicated. But once i got maybe into a quarter of the book i was totally hooked! It was magical, violent, mysterious, and overall fantastic! I would like to recommend it to some of my friends. To end my review ( Thanks for reading this far :D ) i am going to do a pros and cons list.

- Very original plot ( to me )
- Great balance between magic and mystery
- Very eye-catching

- Kind of complicated
- Some unanswered questions that a sequel wont change ( Like: Why didnt the pearls on the folio not whip lady dela when she was reading to find the name? didnt it whip anyone but Eona? )
- Not very much detail if at all on any of the other dragons except tiger, ox, and rat. ( Did you know there was a rooster dragon!? )

Aaaaaaanyway, thats my review. Thanks for sticking around and i hope you found this helpful! :)

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.

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!
