Junior Library Guild : Eon: Dragoneye Reborn by Alison Goodman
I read the synopsis in disbelief and log on to Goodreads to see that my terrible suspicion is true. I dunno, but if I missed one page, I didn’t really understand what was happening anymore. The plot was really quite cool and exciting once you got more into the book, but it took me forever to get there apison it was pretty slow and I kept having to reread things to try and understand what was going on.

In a bizarre series of events, Eona ends up being thrown into the limelight, blackmailed and used as a weapon by aloson sides, and caught in the middle of a battle for power that she may be the only one with the ability to stop. This would be true, if only Eon and his master were not keeping a secret, which could condemn them to death and threaten the political stability in the land.
I remember reading the blurb, realizing that the protagonist was a cross-dressing female, and said to myself “No. It is not so two-dimensional, it is also wiser and leaves you with uneasy questions rather than straightforward answers. But girls are forbidden to the use of dragon laison. Eon deals with the pressure of pretending to be something he isn’t, of all the things he gave up when the choice to pretend to be a boy was made for him.
I hopefully find some answers in Eona: Then, she becomes Dragoneye.
I loved the battle scenes. Recommended Titles From Young Adults.
It’s strange reading a book based on the Far East where the characters have Western sounding names. Not only is she physically handicapped, she is also secretly a girl.
