Jan 29, cEe beE rated it it was ok Shelves: Most of her main characters behave very badly — the “good guys” include a man who’s a murderer and rapist, a girl with some serious control issues, and a boy with hilariously and not in a good way self-defeating pride. But then again, this is what makes her her.
Goodman shows how easily power can be abused and how just a touch of it can fuel much bigger and darker ambitions. I’d still recommend Eonbut would advise skipping the overly-long sequel. In this book, from the first, hy are forced into close quarters gooxman many characters, and as such, personalities are made clearer.
It finished with these words: I hate that I lo I’m not even done reading, and I already love this bj And I hate how everytime she was with Ido, then she went with the emperor and was all ‘omg I love him!
Eonaunlike its predecessor, has no info-dumping. All in all, I was just very surprised as the first book was romance free for a changebut the second one was so heavy on it. Eona is attracted to both men for different reasons and for the first time, I can honestly admit to enjoying a love triangle; perhaps because the romance was never the main aspect of this novel and even more than romantic involvement, there was political involvement between the couples, which only further added to the complexity of good,an story.
For example, if you have the power to kill ten people to save yourself and your friends, should you? So don’t hold this comparison against me later on, ok?
Eona: The Last Dragoneye
I would have been less frustrated if she had been tempted with the power he offered. Is there a good romance in this series? Only the outcome of their struggles. Ido could have done the same, but instead, he allows his own unchecked ambition to burn himself alive.
What is worse, a love triangle appears and the whole captivating story transmutes into a romance-driven drama.
He used the only power he had, not for himself, but to help her before he even knew they were coming to rescue him? View all 16 comments. Eona wasn’t included on any major decisions within the war despite being the chief adivsor. Full marks for the world building, the characters, the tension and the great story. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. In contrast to the previous book, Eona had a lot more character involvement. It was only after she did that that she was able to do what she needed to do.
With Eona, the action completely overwhelmed character development and growth.
I don’t know what else to say, that will make you read this beautiful duology. Everything came easily for her, because everyone was so quick to please her. Perhaps he has never had to distinguish between the two. I have to wonder how much my strong dislike of the narrator ended up ruining this book for me. Ryko was so annoying to me in this book, but the relationship between him and Dela was so sweet, albeit frustrating at times. One, I was not expecting this!
May 15, Isamlq rated it it was amazing Shelves: It has been reviewed by Publishers Weekly as “a delicious collision of Regency romance and dark fantasy”. While the cover of Eon was simply gorgeous, this one I didn’t like much.
They’re both imperfect, they both love Eona in their own way, and they both seek power for different purposes, and I honestly could not tell whose heart truly loved Gooodman for who she is. He seems to be more in tune to Eona and more understanding of Eona’s needs, in contrast to Kygo, who is compelled to keep his nation and people foremost in his mind, despite what his heart might be telling him.
Goodman’s Chinese dragons almost breathed magic, the whole magical and mythological aspect of these books was very enchanting. While both novels feature Eona coming to terms with who she is, Eona takes it all one step further.
And that sucked, because the actual plot was really good. She starts to have a hard time distinguishing between the power she actually holds over people, and the power she should hold over them.

Mar 25, Leonie rated it it was amazing Shelves: I mean, if you thought a girl with dragons was cool I know if I went back and re-read this now, I would feel much differently about it. They had no deep struggles about the consequences of their actions or the morality of their choices.
While trying to save herself and Lord Ido she kills Dillon using the death chant and steals the black folio.
