Starring... Eona by Alison Goodman {Review}

Eon has been revealed as Eona, the first female Dragoneye in hundreds of years. Along with fellow rebels Ryko and Lady Dela, she is on the run from High Lord Sethon's army. 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..

Book Rating:1/2
Fangirling Scale: Gazing at the Stars!

The things missing in the first book is revived in Eona of the Eon duology by Alison Goodman. Being said this I mean: action and romance (Yes!). Ms. Goodman wows the reader once again with another book placed in a world where dragons are maintained by dragoneyes. This is a sequel and ending not to miss!

Ms. Goodman crafted this complex world in Eona where dragons are kept by individuals who are called "dragoneyes". (Read the 1st book to understand!) She explains the struggles of Eona with her control of her Mirror Dragon which needed much explanation. However, Ms. Goodman thoroughly explains all the info needed to understand the world she has placed this book in. Don't worry, you don't need to use all your Hua to understand her world!

The characters in Eona is very mistrusting and mad at Eona for that she kind of messes up everyone's life in some way. Their long-kept annoyance at Eona kind of annoyed me because Eona did these things because she thought it was right. However still, the things she did did mess up everyone's lives. The period as to how long their mean attitude towards Eona was kind of long in my opinion but, their attitude taught Eona a great deal of what she has been doing. Therefore, intervention was needed!

A love between Eona, Kygo, and Ido is present in this second book of the Eon duology. The romance is on the rocks for Eona and Kygo while she is attracted to Ido at the same time. Well now if you've been reading about love triangles, typically you know what will happen. Many problems emerge for both romantic interests like being a concubine or betrayal. Since romance is not a main aspect in this book, there were not many scenes with romance. The romance did not ruin the book, it just added more drama in the plot and also, it made up for the absence in the first book.

Although some parts were slow for me (like the rescue for Ido), I did enjoy most of Eona because their journey to help the dragons and Kygo to return to their rightful places was awarding in the end. The recurrent action scenes lets you forget the romance for a moment and watch with curiosity on with their small number, the characters are still fighting for their goals and for power.  

After finishing this duology, I dwelled on its ending the whole day and couldn't read another book the next day. I just couldn't say goodbye to this series. Therefore, I definitely recommend you to get started on the Eon duology now because it is not something to miss.
