Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 8 Up—In this Asian-inspired fantasy world, political power belongs to the emperor, but also to the Dragoneyes: men who harness the power of the 12 energy dragons named for animals from the Chinese zodiac. Each year, a new one comes to power, and the dragon itself chooses a new apprentice from a pool of 12-year-old boys. Physically lame Eon is thought least likely to be chosen and also has a secret: Eon is truly Eona, a 16-year-old girl. At the ceremony, the Rat Dragon chooses fellow trainee Dillon for the role of apprentice. Eon thinks that all is lost until she sees a dragon no one has seen in 400 years: the Dragon Dragon—also known as the Mirror Dragon. The Mirror Dragon chooses Eon as an apprentice, and because there is no current Mirror Dragoneye, she must serve on the Dragoneye Council herself. She is thus plunged into the dangerous world of the court, which is sharply divided between the emperor and ruthless Lord Ido, the powerful Rat Dragoneye. Fans of Tamora Pierce will appreciate both the strong female protagonist and the cast of shrewd misfits who support her. Although the pace is initially slow, patient readers will be rewarded with high-stakes action in a well-crafted fantasy universe. A second volume will follow, but this one has an ending satisfying enough that readers will not feel cheated.—Megan Honig, New York Public Library

From Bookmarks Magazine

Since J. K. Rowling's ascendance to the throne of young-adult fantasy (and the recent challenge to the throne waged by Stephanie Meyer and her Twilight series), the genre has made significant inroads into mainstream fiction. In Eon: Dragoneye Reborn, first published in Australia, Alison Goodman takes advantage of that interest, crafting a tale full of the elements that have become familiar to readers -- and a few that haven't, particularly her clever take on gender and identity. Goodman is a fine storyteller, turning what could have been boilerplate fantasy into something engaging and important. Only one critic commented on a lack of tension. Eon will appeal to both adolescents and adults, and readers of both types will certainly clamor for the planned sequel.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a very engaging novel about a young girl who is forced to live her life as a young man in order to fulfill her destiny. It is a coming of age story, like many great works of fiction in the young adult fantasy genre. Alas, this novel is certainly good, but not great: the story is exceedingly predictable. This in itself if not a reason not to read the book--there is definitely some comfort in understanding exactly what you are getting when you pick up a book--mysteriously gifted young person unfairly kept down by circumstances out of their control, young person's potential finally recognized by those around them, a dire secret keeps young person's full capacity from saving them from a certain doom, young person goes on a journey of personal discovery to become who they really are. This plot works for Harry Potter, for Star Wars, and for Snow White. So, not much there that you haven't seen before...but the trappings, and the journey itself are quite nice. I haven't read much recent YA fiction set in China (although technically, this is a made-up country, not China itself, the tone is very Chinese with occasional bits of Japanese influence thrown in), although the current Temeraire series (see Temeraire Vol 1-3 Box Set With Bonus Poster)has a very very charming Chinese dragon in it, and one novel takes place in China. The historical details are quite interesting, and nicely done. The writer has a light touch, and although I felt on occasion that she gave away too much too quickly in the beginning, overall she was very readable. Both my wife and I read this book, and we both ended up satisfied with the ending, which was very very exciting.Read more ›

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
EON DRAGONEYE REBORN is a fantasy-action, swordplay novel dealing with Eastern culture and mythical dragons. At its core is the study of how female culture was subdued only to break through in times of desperate need.

The dragon culture of the novel permeates throughout, but only for the masculine ...that is until Eon (actually a teenage girl known secretively as Eona) fights her way into the fire-breathing realm. Mystical and not-just-a-bit enchanting, Eon is an interesting read that plunges the reader deeper and deeper into this nearly fairytale land. Author Alison Goodman (a woman writing in a sword and sorcery action novel?!) is to be commended for her ability to keep the reader engrossed in the story, especially as Eon/Eona falls and falls and falls, giving us a sense of dread that keeps getting upped as the novel progresses.

Death is ever-present in the story, too, as favorite characters get poisoned, beheaded or run-through with sharp blades. The main antagonist is a deeply disturbed dragon master named Ido who's lust for power might hold the key to Eon's life and his/her ability to call the Mirror Dragon, a beast that hasn't been seen for many years and is, apparently, a female dragon too.

The big battle that ensues toward the end of the novel is interesting but pretty transparent (I knew how Eon could call up his/her dragon about halfway through the story).

The other annoying part of the story is how it ends; obviously a tie-in for a future book. Although I accept this ending, it was bothersome to not learn what had happened to a few characters by the end of this story rather than (forcibly?) pulling it into a sequel.

Also, there were just a few too many kowtowings going on.

I have to say this is one of the better books that I read in the past year. The product description on Amazon was nice and intrigued my interest but I held reservations about it. I did read through one or two reviews (I usually pick a long 5 star rating and the longest 1 star rating). But setting those other's people's opinion aside I put myself on the waiting list at my local library and waited. Two weeks later, after working a full day at the office, I picked up the book and went home to my bed and snuggled under my sheets and popped open the book while it snowed outside. And before I knew it, it was 6am the next morning.

Let me tell you off the bat though, if you are looking for a complete one book, this book isn't for you. It ends when the tension and excitement is peaking. Book two I believe will be released in spring of 2011.

Goodman weaves a fantastic tale here. She immediately places the reader into the character's (Eon/Eona) point of view. You'll know which arms master to hate and which to somewhat like. The intricacy and intimacy of the characters' relationships are told in an empathic manner. There are few summaries in this book, which places readers in the present time of the book. Meaning the reader is always there with the character witnessing events unfold as if they were there, not sitting and reading the thoughts of the character, having the character filter information. Events were mostly in the present, making the story almost always urgent.

In the reviews I read I did see complaints of the book lagging due to the details of the world, and I admit I did feel the stall in the story at times. It was possible for Goodman to rein in some points in certain places but I also think it would have been a disservice to the book.
