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 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

    Story
    "Not that good"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It wasn't a complete wast of time, but I don't think I'd listen to it again if I could go back. I understand that Eon was in a hard spot, but honestly I can only listen to so much winnying before I'm just annoyed.
    The courtly wit and banter that could have add some much the book fell flat. The book is missing something, I really don't I'll bother with the sequal.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I didn't have a problem with her in the beginning but she started to wear on me the longer I listened. Maybe is was how it was written but the narrator didn't help Eon sounds like a winy little girl most of the time, at times the narrator even gave her a differant voice. But the worst part is listening to the narrator's mouth noises, and you could hear the creck of a chair.


    Do you think Eon needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    sure if you liked the first one.

    "Great concept, good book, very original."

    I enjoy reading Asian-inspired fantasy, I liked it even though I had problems with some of the characters seeming a bit underdeveloped. Very good book none the less.

    "Pretty good"

    Very entertaining story, not boring, and quick. The reader was nice as well and very easy to understand. The recording of the reader how ever could have been a little better. At time listening to it on my Iphone the recording sounded as if it was a recording of a recording. But still very easy to understand and enjoy

    "Wait for the abridged version."

    And save yourself a lot of frustration. The book overall has a lot of potential. However, it's so long I skipped chapters (and it was still too long) and the plot was so obvious you wanted to slap the characters! Also, do NOT let children listen; older teens would be ok. Doubt if I read the sequel as I already know how things will end up.

    "Grating, mechanical, unable to suspend dis-belief."

    Awesome topic and very much researched. But not well storied. I stuck it out to the end, but it's hard when you can see everything coming, but it takes forever to get there and often never does. Nancy Wu made it bearable.

    I average three books a week, but as I cannot afford to purchase that many books I frequently re-read those I already have. If you are here looking for reviews, I typically only review those books I feel particularly strongly about or have some insight that hasn't yet been posted in a review.

    "Frustrating"

    The main character of this book is so frustratingly stupid I occasionally found myself yelling at her. Nearly everything bad that happens is her own fault, and most of it is blatantly obvious.

    The idea and setting of the book are good, but the character is sooo stupid. I know this is supposed to be a kids book, but if I were a kid I would be insulted, especially since this is obviously intended for older kids (seeing as how it deals with subjects like harems, rape, murder of children, etc - nothing graphic but all there).

    I hate being too hard on this book as the author obviously put quite a bit of time and effort into it. The reader is decent, and the language good (Though I wish they were called something other than "Energy Dragons" as that sounds really silly in the context of the book, but thankfully the overuse of this phrase is mostly only in the first and second chapters, after that they are just called dragons most of the time).
