As you see, it was not the case of high expectations, it was a case of high certainty that I am in for a real treat.
You have been warned. Dec 25, Mayim de Vries rated it liked it. Well, I got what I wanted in this book, a bit too much of it at times. Apr 29, Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies rated it it was amazing Shelves: View all 26 comments. I really loved the whole magical energy world and seeing her unleash a whole slew of bad ass on their enemies.
Plot-wise, the intrigue was exposed in the previous book, premised explained, all figures set in motion, the main lines drawn and the finishing line beckoned on the clouded horizon.
Then how in the while wide world do they end up together?! I suppose I should stop saying ‘arse,’ since ladies don’t say-” “‘Arse’,” he finished for me. Full of magic and colorful descriptions, not just the world, but the story itself is so very much alive. However, I liked the idea that even the lowest of the low could have a little redemption and I thought that was where Goodman was going when Ido chose to save Eona instead of freeing himself from his torture cell. When she calls the mirror dragon, the ten deserted dragons come charging in, causing massive damage and death.
Is there a good romance in this series? The second requires proof, whether it be upfront or covert. Jan 25, Wendy Darling rated it it was amazing Shelves: While Kygo is a pompous, childish, goodnan kid – true, he IS the Emperor but does he have to act all the time like everything is due to him? Patch met all those requirements. There was even a tolerable love triangle and I had no idea which way that was going to go.
Eona: The Last Dragoneye
Full o Three stars, but barely. It was like a giant soap opera that I couldn’t get into. The romance story line is no less complicated – romantic relationships are convoluted by mistrust, fear of deception, power imbalances, questions of morality, loyalty and honor. I always glodman so uneasy about the amount of secrets she kept. The storytelling is superb, the plot is intricate with twists and turns that will keep you glued to the pages, the pace is breathless and the battles epic.

I admired that very much about her. I feared that most of the book would be about finding Kygo and reuniting with the resistance, but Kygo found them within four chapters. And the emperor couldn’t even be with her by law, cause he’ll need to have royal wives, and a mountain of royal concubines!
The time is no longer spent on extensive world-building, but on Eona’s exploration of her power as both a Dragoneye and a woman. I actually liked the evil fool! The love triangle introduced did not make it any easier for me. Just blatantly used him. This book continues with the theme of finding a balance, expanding it from the balance between male and female to include the balance between power and tyranny and duty and love.
And she shouldn’t have to suffer for the misdeeds of others. But, are they both merely using her for her power? For example, if you have the power to kill ten people to save yourself and your friends, should you? Before you can decide whether this book is your cup of tea, the first thing you need to ask yourself is what you look for in a book, what makes something a good read for you.
Every time she tries to bond with her Mirror Dragon, she becomes a conduit for the ten spirit dragons whose Dragoneyes were murdered by Lord Ido. View all 9 comments. It’s a mess and a half. I couldn’t stand the characters.
Much better than the first book! Dela and Ryko, Kygo Meanwhile, they are being pursued by the vast army of would-be emperor Sethon, who is a one-dimensional and stereotypical evil villain. Most of the way through this book, I wasn’t sure where it was going, or what the point of it all was, but at the end it all came together, and the reasoning behind all the other stuff that had happened became clear.
The wonderful world-building lost its appeal for me with this sequel’s poorly developed storyline where an unlikely ‘hero’ turned into an unlikeable and unreliable heroine. Good luck sorting out your entire fucking empire because everything was a lie and now everyone is dead. So it’s no wonder that the “bad guys” are parodies, detailed as even more unscrupulous rapists, power-mongers, and outright demons. Eona, with its pulse-pounding drama and romance, its unforgettable fight scenes, and its surprises, is the conclusion to an epic story only Alison Goodman can create.
It had the mythology that I loved so much about the first book, but more adventure and romance, which were two things I mentioned in my review of Eon that I wished there had been more of.
It literally took around pages just to rescue Ido before he could start training Eona. A bunch of lame shit would happen but then these small little moments continued to tempt and tease me this entire novel.
