Eon was both a character-driven and action-driven story. Moral battles I am not that well-read in the fantasy genre but I’m beginning to think that this is why I tend to prefer female writers of fantasy and sci-fi too. You should never be that person who is pushing for the bad guy.
I just felt like I was there, and I haven’t read a book in the longest time that had the ability to do that. My head is spinning! I thought his death scene was fantastic. Although, I do recommend refreshing your memory with the previous book if you forgot stuff Through it all, Eona must come to terms with her new Dragoneye identity and power eoona and learn to bear the anguish of the ten dragons whose Dragoneyes were murdered.
Eona Series in Order – Alison Goodman – FictionDB
Second, I was already acquainted with Gooman. Alas, as they say, nobody expected Spanish Inquisition. Perhaps at times I even thought there was too much magic and I wished it would stop. It was like the author threw all the questionable morals surrounding his character out the window for an easier ending.
At some parts, I would be cheering on the characters and at others, I would be rolling all over the place, screaming at the pages because I thought what was going on was crazy. I didn’t love Eona’s character in this book – goodjan the people who were supposedly her friends were jerks.
AND and this is even harder to dowhen he is written as a real, viable love interest. As with its predecessor, Eona continues to impress with the fusion of Asian culture that remains to be a large aspect of its world-building and the flashbacks to the past that Eona experiences of her ancestor all played into the tale remarkably well. He used the only power he had, not for himself, but to help her eonz he even knew they were coming to rescue him? And we got not only romance, but a love-triangle.
Eon has come out as “Eona” and admitted she was a girl all along. Other books in the series.
And since I don’t like her, I knew pretty much that, as she had annoyed me before, she would annoy me in this book as well. Like how the two characters are going to navigate the trials goidman their relationship and stuff likes.
Maybe a lot of us would like to be heroes in a perfect world but this is far from a perfect world and we all have our limits, our breaking points, and most of us can be seduced at times gooman a dark alternative to the straight and narrow path. Not that this is the right thing to do, but it is realistic.
It’s a mess and a half.
Everytime he kissed her, it was almost in a possessive, ‘I have to have everything I want’ kind of way. I’m cringing a little as I type this, but I was expecting her draw to him to have been strong enough to get him to change. I have just one last complaint. She was pretty aggravating and annoying for a lot of it with her selfish decisions and flippant attitude toward it.
But I have changed, my tastes, I hope, have evolved, so my love for Eona and the triangle in it could be characterized as mere a relapse. Luckily, people have accepted this, and she has become a Dragoneye.
I’m not even done reading, and I already love this book! I actually disliked the emperor so much, that I was pulling for Ido. The clues were given in a believable manner, spaced out so that it doesn’t seem like clue upon clue is forced upon us. How often does the sequel outdo its predecessor? The way she treats her loved ones, the way she meets everyone around her with mistrust and suspicion were not necessarily unrealistic traits for someone in her situation, but they made it almost impossible for me to feel with her.
Only the outcome of their struggles. The second requires proof, whether it be upfront or covert. He told her the plan, and she went along with it knowingly. Even when it makes sense to tell the truth she doesn’t do it. She sure was dense. Romance You like a little romance in between battles for the empire? It was nice, but just never ascended from that level.
Well, I got what I wanted in this book, a bit too much of it at times. There was even a creative plot twist about the very foundation of the whole goddamn country!!! Well written, great characterization, good pacing — I am a sucker for YA fantasy and this is a reason why. She’s a pathological liar the entire time.
Eon Series by Alison Goodman
In Eon, not so much because he was a total asshole, but throughout this whole story except the end, I will be getting to that later he was a sarcastic, funny character that I enjoyed reading about. Both men, Lord Ido, and the Emperor Kygo, are such complex and flawed characters. But then again, this is what makes her her. Refresh and try again. I never realised how cool they were until I read this.
You would think he would be a little less trusting and a little more skilled in intrigue since that is what he was supposedly raised to do. The prince should be a little more politically capable.
