Eona – Alison Goodman

Book Cover - Eona2 stars


Eona (Amazon)


Eon has been revealed as Eona, the first female Dragoneye in hundreds of years. Along with fellow rebels Ryko and Lady Dela, she is on the run from High Lord Sethon’s army. The renegades are on a quest for the black folio, stolen by the drug-riddled Dillon; 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 from the selfstyled “Emperor” Sethon. Through it all, Eona must come to terms with her new Dragoneye identity and power – and learn to bear the anguish of the ten dragons whose Dragoneyes were murdered. As they focus their power through her, she becomes a dangerous conduit for their plans. . . .

Eona, with its pulse-pounding drama and romance, its unforgettable fight scenes, and its surprises, is the conclusion to an epic story only Alison Goodman can create..


There are some spoilers if you haven’t read the first book.

If I had to pick one word to describe how I felt about this book it would be….Horrible! The major thing that I loved about Eon was the amazing world that Alison Goodman created. But in this book the world seemed to take a backseat to all the drama that Eona surrounds herself with.

Eona throws a fit when Ryko tells the king that he shouldn’t trust her, and then every other page is seems like she is either lying or hiding something from the king. And of course when she finds out that Kygo has hidden part of his war plan from Eona, she flips out. Eona was just a horrible person, and a horrible character. I just couldn’t bring myself to like anything about her.

Now lets throw in a stupid love triangle that had no point of being there. You think that there might be because of passage from the red folio but nope, just a pointless mess. Sure, lets take the horrible bad guy from the first book, the one that killed all the Dragoneyes and tried to rape Eona. Yeah, because that makes a lot of sense.

Overall, a horrible book. If you have read the first book, prepare yourself before you read this one. And if you have yet to read the first book, don’t. The series just jumps the tracks.
