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.

    "Dissatisfaction"

    Takes her until the end of the book to figure out who she is and then she doesn't even do that herself. Weak character with no strength and sense to keep the story going strong.

    "Action packed but not much else"

    Almost gave up on this title; it just didn't do it for me. (And I adored The Dark Days Club.) The protagonist was too clueless & the plot too simplistic. Too many fight scenes bore me; it's like she's was trying to write a screenplay. I also didn't find that the narrator had much skill in characterization for my taste.

    But I did very much like the gender dysphoria elements the author tried to draw together, and think many teens might relate strongly to that. I think for a YA audience grappling with identity issues, this would be a good read.

    "so 🐌 slow"

    struggle to get through it. the story was so slow most of,the time. Seems like it would take an hour of listening for the main character to cross a room.

    Story
    "Yawn."

    While the story has potential and I really liked the whole Chinese dragon part, the rest of the story was forgettable. I found my mind drifting a bit and I ended up breaking up the book by listening to something else in between. I think the thing that just made this book boring were the characters. Eon/ Eona was chosen by the mirror dragon who had been missing from the world for over 500 years. Incredible right? But why I ask myself, there was nothing special about her besides her being a girl pretending to be a boy. Even the dragons don't do anything, they are more for political ploy. I found that when I took breaks from reading, I didn't have the desire to return to the book and maybe this book gets better but after about 4 1/2 hrs, I decided to stop listening. Maybe I will return to it if I ever run out of audios to listen to. Narrator was fairly good.

    "Engaging and Thought provoking"

    My younger brother recommended this book to me. i was a little hesitant as it was not one i would otherwise listen to. However after only about an hour i was hooked. Alison Goodman has such a beautiful way of show in her world that i immediately got sucked in. I swear i could almost smell taste and hear everything thing she talked about. Nancy Wu did an amazing job of portraying every ounce of emotion and feeling the characters experienced. It to me was a wonderful book and executed perfectly.

    "Wonderful narration!"

    I love Nancy Wu's narration for the story. This book has been one of my favorites for years, and I have read it many times. Her enthusiasm and voice lend perfection to the story. She is a master storyteller, in my opinion, and her voice held me captive.
    Alison Goodman weaves a wonderful tale of feminine power in a dark Era where women aren't truly permitted a say in political and everyday life. Couple draconic influence and the feminine mystique, and you've got Eona - a young woman masquerading as a boy in order to survive and succeed in a world dominated by bloodthirsty men.

    "Narrator could be better."

    Narrator speaks too quickly and doesn't pause when starting a new thought, paragraph, or such. Listeners get confused because it's not obvious that she's starting a new thought or paragraph. No need for such fast reading here.

    "a bit predictable, which was frustrating"

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