Eon: Dragoneye Reborn - Alison Goodman

None December 24th, 2008



The title of the book instantly put me off "” it all smacked too much of people who dress up and go to Renaissance festivals. I like a good fantasy as much as the next nerd, but I tend to draw the line at dragons. And "Eon," by Australian author Alison Goodman, is chock full of a peculiar type of dragon.

The thing is, however, that dragons or no, "Eon" is a well-written story of great imagination. It follows Eon, a young boy who has been studying Dragon Magic, an intensive training to understand the 12 different "dragon" energies that are based in Asian astrology. Except Eon is actually Eona, a girl, and if anyone discovered her secret identity, things wouldn't turn out so well for her.

"Eon" takes place in a medieval-style world of Goodman's making, where imperial struggles and magic are commonplace. The book is 531 pages long, and the first in a planned duo. But, the pacing is quick and it's sure to capture the attention of middle grade and some young adult readers.
