Title: Eon (Eon #1)
Author: Alison Goodman
Published: August 31, 2010
Length: 531 pages
Synopsis (via Goodreads):
She has a powerful secret… with deadly consequences.
For years, Eon’s life has been focused on magical study and sword-work, with one goal: that he be chosen as a Dragoneye, an apprentice to one of the twelve energy dragons of good fortune.
But Eon has a dangerous secret. He is actually Eona, a sixteen-year-old girl who has been masquerading as a twelve-year-old boy. Females are forbidden to use Dragon Magic; if anyone discovers she has been hiding in plain sight, her death is assured.
When Eon’s secret threatens to come to light, she and her allies are plunged into grave danger and a deadly struggle for the Imperial throne. Eon must find the strength and inner power to battle those who want to take her magic… and her life.
how did i get it?
Pretty sure it was during a Barnes and Noble binge. I bought both books in this series because they were huge and looked interesting.
when did i get it?
I honestly have no idea. Maybe in 2015? Definitely not when it first came out.
why do i want to read it?
Does it actually have dragons in it? I sure hope so. Because I swear I am the mother of dragons. I love anything dragon related and I can’t get enough of well written, good dragon novels. I think the last one that I read that was my absolute favorite was Talon by Julie Kagawa, and I need to get on that series ASAP. The first book was a fun taste to what Kagawa had in store. Now, if it doesn’t have actual dragons, will I be upset? Maybe.
So I think there’s a pattern emerging in this theme. I think there’s a pattern emerging in my bookshelf. I think I may just need more dragons in my life. Mythical creatures for the win, honestly. Mermaids? Dragons? Domovoi? Werewolves? Upir? Succubi? Give it to me all day, every day.
Has anyone read this duology? It’s pretty hefty with being over 500 pages. I’m pretty sure the second one is over 500 pages as well. That’s a pretty long story, am I right? Let me know your thoughts!
