Description

For years, he's been studying sword-work and magic, toward one end. He and his master hope that he will be chosen as a Dragoneye-an apprentice to one of the twelve energy dragons of good fortune. But Eon has a dangerous secret. He is actually Eona, a sixteen-year-old girl who has been masquerading as a twelve-year-old boy. Females are forbidden to use Dragon Magic; if anyone discovers she has been hiding in plain sight, her death is assured. When Eon's secret threatens to come to light, she and her allies are plunged into grave danger and a deadly struggle for the Imperial throne. Eon must find the strength and inner power to battle those who want to take her magic...and her life.show more

Review quote

-"Eon" is wonderful, with its whirlwind of gender exploration, imperial ambition, dragon lore and dissection of nature versus nurture.+ -"Los Angeles Times" -Includes plenty of exciting sword fights and plot reversals, and the dragons themselves, which only mystics of Eon+s ability can see, are beautifully described.+ -"New York Times" -This mesmerizing story begins where most novels end: in a tension-filled climactic event . . . A world so richly imagined that it feels real.+ -"Booklist," starred reviewshow more

Our customer reviews

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. *Gold Star Award Winner!show more
