Eon: Rise of the Dragoneye Summary


Eon: Rise of the Dragoneye by Alison Goodman

Twelve-year old Eon has been studying the ancient art of the Dragoneyes for two years. Singled out by an ailing but power-hungry Dragonmaster, he is desperate for the chance to become a Dragoneye, the human link to one of the twelve energy dragons and its power. But he is playing a dangerous game: Eon is actually Eona, 16 years old and a girl. His true identity must remain hidden at all costs: it is forbidden for women to practise the Art, and to be discovered would be punishable by death.Now the Rat Dragon seeks a new apprentice and only one boy will be chosen. The twelve candidates approach the mirrors and perform ancient combat sequences to prove their worth. Let down by his injured leg, it seems that Eon is destined to fail, until a spectacular twist in events catapults him into the opulent but treacherous world of the Imperial court. Without a master to guide him, Eon must learn to harness his unprecedented natural power, while protecting the secret that could cost him everything ...Set against a rich backdrop of Ancient Chinese myths and traditions and fraught with tension, this is a classic page-turner.

Eon: Rise of the Dragoneye Reviews


"Eon" is wonderful, with its whirlwind of gender exploration, imperial ambition, dragon lore and dissection of nature versus nurture. "Los Angeles Times"
Includes plenty of exciting sword fights and plot reversals, and the dragons themselves, which only mystics of Eon s ability can see, are beautifully described. "New York Times"
This mesmerizing story begins where most novels end: in a tension-filled climactic event . . . A world so richly imagined that it feels real. "Booklist", starred review
