Once she was Eon, a girl disguised as a boy, risking her life for the chance to become a Dragoneye apprentice….

Now she is Eona, the Mirror Dragoneye, her country’s savior–but she has an even more dangerous secret.  She cannot control her power.  Each time she tries, she opens herself to the ten spirit dragons whose Dragoneyes were murdered, and her ability twists into a killing force.  Worse, more destruction is on her trail, for she and her friends are on the run from High Lord Sethon’s army.  They must find Kygo, the young Pearl Emperor, who needs Eona’s power if he is to wrest back his throne.  But to help, she must drive a dark bargain with an old enemy, which could obliterate them all.  Eona, with it’s pulse-pounding drama, unforgettable fight scenes–and many surprises–brings to a close an epic story.

My Thoughts

Eona picks up right where Eon left off.  Eona has escaped the clutches of the evil Rat Dragoneye and the usurper Lord Sethon.  Joining ranks with the Resistance, the cause dedicated to the rightful heir to the throne, Prince (now Emporer) Kygo, Eona is at a loss as to how to harness her new power without bringing down the wrath of the forlorn Dragons upon her and her company.  Now Eona must embark on a journey to discover her full power potential, restore Prince Kygo to his throne, and right a most grievous wrong from the past.

I was all in on this book.  I enjoyed Eona getting to know herself as a young lady and trying to navigate the politics of her world while trying to stay true to herself and her ideals.  Though she crosses her own lines and fails miserably at keeping promises, her struggle with power and herself was interesting.  I felt the struggle of her budding romance with Prince Kygo yet her strong attraction to Lord Ido’s power, though evil.

Eona did manage to work my nerves though.  There were many instances where she held back information or kept secrets when it really wasn’t necessary or beneficial to her or her friends.  It also irked me when she would get upset with someone else keeping secrets when she was doing the exact same thing and when the consequences were way more detrimental.

This book was intense and action packed.  Overall a lovely series by Allison Goodman.  If you’re into YA Fantasy, then this series is a must read.
