Review:

In the empire of the celestial dragons, reminiscent of ancient China, twelve humans, known as dragoneyes can mind meld with their dragons and control nature. Ten of the dragoneyes have been killed by Lord Ido, dragoneye of the Rat Dragon. Eona is the dragoneye of the Dragon Dragon, but she is untrained, and whenever she tries to bond with her dragon, the grief-stricken ten masterless dragons come roaring toward her and threaten to destroy her. Her only hope is to be trained by Lord Ido, the tortured prisoner of Lord Sethon. With his large army, Sethon is conquering the empire and stealing it from its rightful ruler, the Pearl Emperor, Kygo. While trying to save the life of a friend by calling on her untrained power, Eona wrecks havoc, killing numerous innocent people. After meeting up with Kygo and his few loyal followers , Eona persuades him that the only way she can help him is by first freeing Ido, who will teach her to control her power.

In this sequel to Eon, in which Eona was disguised as a twelve-year-old boy, Eona, now a beautiful young woman, becomes a pawn in the struggle to rule the empire between Sethon and Kygo and the desire for supernatural power that the rescued Lord Ido desires. Eona tries to help Kygo, whom she loves, without losing her own soul in the process. Author Alison Goodman gives readers a highly original story with a truly excellent adventure with totally unpredictable twists and turns.
