Eona: The Last Dragoneye (Eon, #2) by Alison Goodman
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.

Eona: The Last Dragoneye
That’s kind yoodman why it’s hard not to love this series from the beginning, with this colourful world that has been enoa by Chinese and Japanese culture and mythology but has also taken on a life of its own. This carefully-constructed world built on power of different kinds – that of the imperial family and that of the Dragoneyes. Goodman’s land is steeped in power struggles, magic and secrets. Who can you possibly trust in such a world?
Varied, exciting and flawed characters The flawed character is a particular literary love of mine. Because no one is perfect.
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 by a dark alternative to the straight and narrow path.
Eona is an excellent heroine who faces godoman struggles with power and her alkson character let’s face it, who wouldn’t be aloson after what she’s been throughis she Kygo’s Dragoneye? Eona is smart but the seduction of ultimate power occasionally leads eoma to make the wrong decisions, she is afterall only a flawed human being – as we all are.
But beyond Eona are other oena characters too. Dela and Ryko, Kygo Ido goovman one great whopping surprise in this book, it’s only a really good writer that can take you from seething hatred towards a character to pity to almost-kinda-liking him.
Ido is one charismatic bastard, full of amusing quips but always looking for ways to manipulate a situation to get what he wants. Along with Eona, Ido was the other character I constantly looked out for, eager to see his progression and where he’d end up.
Fantasy There’s dragons, my friend, dragons. I never realised how cool they were until I read this. It’s so strange that just a year ago I thought I didn’t like high fantasy – you know, magical realms and whatnot – and now this book is easily making it onto my favourites list. My bad experiences with The Lord of the Rings made me think these kind of books weren’t for me.
But this is such a vivid fantasy world that I couldn’t help being sucked in. It’s the perfect blend of magic and real-world alisno stirred in with a little dragon drama to create a very exciting mix. Romance You like a little romance in between battles for the empire?
Of course you do! Especially when the romance is complicated and both parties aren’t exactly trustworthy. Eona tries to determine Kygo’s motivations and whether he is being honest with her, and she in turn holds information back from him in fear of what he could do with it.
It’s a complicated relationship aliso two powerful people who are all too aware of each other’s power.
And what about Ido? Are his and Eona’s destinies more inextricably linked than anyone could have foreseen? This book all comes back to power, that between enemies, between friends, and between lovers.
Goodman shows how easily power can be abused and how just a touch of it can fuel much bigger and darker ambitions. 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.
I don’t want to drop authors of either gender into a box, it’s not so black and white as that, but I do think from experience that there’s just something a bit more human about the stories written by women, and the lack boodman this is probably the goodmsn I oena so detached from The Lord of epna Rings.
Hoodman fantasy and sci-fi it’s common to take the reader far away from the world and people they are fona to, but in Goodman’s land far far away the moral conflicts Eona faces are something very real and easily applicable in our world.
Ideas about power and war. For example, if you have the power to kill ten people to save yourself and your friends, should you? How about one hundred? A quick read Nope, there’s no point even trying. But, unlike some books I’ve read recently, I thought every page was necessary and it never felt too long. In fact, I wanted more. You have been warned. Not that he shouldn’t have died, I knew as soon as he made Eona feel conflicted about her feelings that the author would have to get rid of him so Eona could be with Kygo.
However, I liked the idea that even the lowest of the low could have a little redemption and I thought that was where Goodman was going when Ido chose to save Eona instead of freeing himself from his torture cell. I loved that he did that, and whilst he was still a murderer and had gone too far for real forgiveness, I would’ve liked his death to have remembered him as the guy who finally put someone else first.
Instead eeona the power-hungry madman he became at the end. View all 48 comments. As seen on The Readventurer If you liked Eon: Dragoneye Reborn and your eyes didn’t glaze over every time you read about Eona uniting with her dragon, allson into her mind-sight, channeling her Hua and so forth, I don’t see any reason for you to dislike aliison novel. I feel like every goodman I had with the 1st book of this duology was successfully fixed or improved upon in this sequel.
Eonaunlike its predecessor, has no info-dumping. Instead, it is a quest-type adventure in which Eona attempts to save her home country and in the process learn to control her newly acquired immense power.
It is also a very personal story. The time is no longer spent on extensive world-building, but on Eona’s exploration of her power as both a Dragoneye and a woman. Of course, everything is messy. With great power comes great responsibility – how much violence is justified in war? The romance story line is no less complicated – romantic relationships are convoluted by mistrust, fear of deception, power imbalances, questions of morality, loyalty and honor.
Every decision Eona has to make is ambiguous and difficult and requiring serious sacrifices, just the way I like them. But the best part of the book for me was the fact that when I started it, I was sure it would simply be about saving the Empire of Celestial Dragons from Sethon, but it turned out to be much more than that, sort of like in Shadowfever Note: So don’t hold this comparison against me later on, ok?
I am thoroughly impressed by this intelligent, complex and thoughtful story. Highly recommend it, unless, of course, you can’t stand fantasy, dragons and heavy world building. View all 26 comments. Apr 29, Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies rated it it was amazing Shelves: I gave up on Eon: Dragoneye Reborn when I first attempted to read it because the beginning moved like molasses.
I just wanted some action already, geez. Well, I got what I wanted in this book, a bit too much of it at times. Eona was nonstop action from the first page.
