Publisher's Summary

Twelve-year-old Eon has been training for years. His intensive study of Dragon Magic, based on Oriental astrology, involves two kinds of skills: sword-work and magical aptitude. He and his master hope that he will be chosen as a Dragoneye - an apprentice to one of the 12 energy dragons of good fortune.

But Eon has a dangerous secret. He is actually Eona, a 16-year-old girl who has been masquerading as a 12-year-old boy for the chance to become a Dragoneye.

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.

    Story
    "A Fresh Change of Pace"
    If you could sum up Eon in three words, what would they be?

    Fun, Unique, Excellent.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Eon?

    Eona and her dragon Eona finally making their union.


    Have you listened to any of Nancy Wu’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listen to any of Nancy's other performances however I enjoyed what she did with Eon so i will be looking for more of her later on.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Main extreme reaction was what happened to the dragoneyes at the hand of the Rat Dragoneye.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book, in audio and paper form. A good read.

    "very entertaining story"
    What did you like best about this story?

    This was an interesting take on the fantasy story, taken more on what I would imagine is the Asian view of dragons vs. The European view with a little feminism thrown in.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Nancy Wu?

    I liked this book in spite of Nancy Wu. I felt her voice was a little high pitched and monotone...it grated on me at times. An odd choice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but only after a couple chapters.


    Any additional comments?

    I felt the story sucked me in more than I expected it would from the start. There were a couple of minor things that bothered me. When the narrator reached a climax in the story she got all high pitched and monotone which detracted from the story. There were some very odd word choices, like the author was not a native speaker. Some other elements of the story bothered me..the lead being crippled, the world hierarchy, etc. That being said I ended up really liking it.

    "Like listening to someone else's whiny 12-year-old"

    I don't know, maybe I just didn't like the narrator's voice and I have something against dragons? Whatever the cause I found this book unreadable.

    Story
    "Think Mulan, only better."

    the narration of this story was perfect, Nacy Wu has perfect timing and her ability to fluxuate her voice for the characters added depth. That said, she had an excellent story and beautiful writing to work with.

    Alison Goodman uses Eon, a crippled girl disguised as a boy, to bring forth a world of spiritual magic and political intrigue. Eon goes through struggles with personal beliefs, greater good, and the heart. She chases her desire through lies and doing what one has to while trying to form bonds and keep them.

    That's the short of the story. The long is that you just have to read it. I found myself engaged with every character, none of them stereotypical in any way. The book also doesn't rely on magic to carry it through to the end. If anything, magic is like power and money in the real world, a corrupter if sought with no regard to those around you.

    This book is magnificent for young adults, and I would argue that adults and younger children would benefit from some of the deeper emotions and thoughts within, as they read it together. It shows the up and downs to pursing a greater position in life and following your dreams. There is always a struggle and ethics are never black and white. What would you compromise in yourself to get to where you believe you need to be?

    I have also read Eona, and the two book series does not lose momentum, it builds powerfully upon itself. The language within the pages is well turned and paints some beautiful pictures when the dragon eyes bond with their dragons.

    "Pretty Good"

    This book started off terrific but about 2/3 of the way down it stalled. I agree with some of the other reviewers who said that it felt like the author was trying to stretch the story out in order to write a sequel. I wish she had just gone for the one book and the tighter story but it was good. The narrator was good also.

    I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

    "I won't listen again"

    It certainly is not the worst book I have read, but this story isn't what I would call a Kids or Young Adult book. The events of the book are far from what I want my young children reading. When the book was over I was relieved. I find the research to be good but the presentation was lacking.

    "a bit predictable, which was frustrating"

    generally a good story but the predictability was frustrating. I still want to read the sequel though.

    "Good"

    I did like the book well written although very predictable. The narrator was a little on the "over excited" side most times. All and all although I would not re read this novel I most likely will be reading the sequel eona

    Story
    "A Good Listen for a Fantasy-Driven Adolescent"
    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It was open-ended.... It nearly forces you to have to read the 2nd book. Not impressed.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I think for the most part- although it was not as strong of narration as I have had in the past with narrators of Rules of Civility, Pillars of the Earth and Cutting for Stone.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No
