Eon Rise of the Dragoneye – Book Review
By Angela Youngman May 11, 2010, 16:08 GMT
Inspired by the rich myths and traditions of Ancient China, shimmering with energy dragons and fraught with tension, this is a fast-paced, exhilarating page-turner.
Is Eon ready to become a Dragoneye? Testing has begun for the next apprentice Rat Dragon - but surprises are in store. Instead of serving the Rat, Eon awakens the long lost Mirror Dragon and quickly becomes a pawn in a battle for power.
Worse still, Eon's own personal secrets create difficulty in controlling the Mirror Dragon at time when survival is under threat. 'He' is not all that he seems - for Eon is really Eona, a girl, whose very existence would not be possible as a dragonlord. How can Eon deal with these problems? Can Eon survive?
And what does it mean for the survival of the Celestial Empire? Soon Eon realizes that the struggle for power is all embracing - at the heart of it lies the question of who will rule?
Alison Goodman has drawn on a fascinating series of Chinese and Oriental mythology to create this enthralling book - and I eagerly await the concluding volume to find out just what happens to Eona.
