The main character is a girl pretending to be a boy so there is a lot of information about gender roles but I This is a pretty chunky book for young adult but it was a fairly easy read. It can be a bit too overwhelming at times but I am very patient with worldbuilding which made Dragoneye Reborn a perfect read for me, at least in one very important way.

I also like Lord Ido’s character, his is one of the more well-developed ones, and I’m a sucker for ambiguously evil anti-heroes.

She went from suppressing her womanhood to eln it. The only person who knows the truth is her Master and teacher, a former Dragoneye, geborn the secret could easily kill them both.

It’s pretty frustrating to know all the answers and to want to shake them into the character. I personally think it is more the second than the first. You can trust me that the world building is thorough.

The Dragoneyes are the link between the spiritual world of the dragons and the physical universe. It rebrn not so two-dimensional, it is also wiser and leaves you with uneasy questions rather than straightforward answers. Eon has a deformity of the hips and no one believes that such a luckless boy would ever be chosen for this most prestigious honor. There was a plot to overthrow the emperor and only thin lines of rank and respect stopped evil lords from whipping out their swords and killing everyone.


He and his master hope that he will be chosen as a Dragoneye–an apprentice to one of the twelve energy dragons of good fortune. As a reader, you are well aware that Eon’s continued consumption of the Sun drug, and his denial of his femininity, are distancing dragoneey from his dragon; but since Eon continues to struggle against this obvious conclusion for several chapters, it leads to a sort of hideous, helpless frustration on the poor reader’s part.

In a bizarre series of events, Eona ends up being thrown into the limelight, blackmailed and used vragoneye a weapon by opposing sides, and caught in the middle of a battle for power that she may be the only eoj with the ability to stop.

In truth, secondary characters were far more interesting than Eon himself.

She’s blurting out statements right and left, when just months before she lowers her eyes and says “yes, Master,” “yes, Swordmaster” and so on. To make impossible odds even more impossible, Eona is also crippled, so the deck is very much stacked against her.

I don’t think I could do it. If you like conflicted villains who aren’t evil purely for the sake of being bad, go pick up the nearest copy of this book. If he is selected, he will commune and share power with one of the twelve Dragons, which are energy based creatures If you, like me, have always wished that Tamora Pierce and Anne McCaffrey would finally admit their deep, abiding love for one another; make it official with a short ceremony in Massachusetts; then decide to start a family by adopting a fierce Asian baby, then I think you will fall in love with this book.

I really like the idea of stories with girls disguised as boys, and though the concept is certainly nothing newit’s definitely not something we see too much in young adult literature. It makes sense within rebofn context of the book, since Eona never really get to become too close to anyone, for fear of revealing who she is.

Eon; Dragoneye Reborn. – Free Online Library

It has a magic system inspired by feng shui and Chinese dragoneyr, with a blend of Asian cultures that was beautifully developed. So glad to read a 5 star book! Although I admit, I missed the romance and some tear-inducing moments in this book, the impeccable, magnificent world created by Alison Goodman completely captured my imagination and made me forget about the slight deficiencies in characterization. Its cover is totally fierce I gree admit that I took shameless advantage of all of these privileges, and I miss them quite a lot although I do NOT m I am a huge dum-dum.

He doesn’t have the easy courage of a Katniss, or the admirable and stoic, heroism of a Harry Potter. It was so interesting. View all 6 comments. His master has staked his own future and that of his household’s reobrn Eon being chosen, and if he’s not, Eon will be doomed to a life of servitude and de-humanizing treatment, due to dragonye being a cripple in a world where cripples are signs of ill-luck.

Booklist Review

I have to admit, at first I wasn’t too impressed by the pacing of this novel. The answers to everything Eon is asking and how many mistakes he’s making are really really obvious.

What defines the essence of woman and what defines the essence of man?

I found it fascinating that the author chose to write a book focusing on a world where power is forbidden to women, and my favorite character was the indelible Lady Dela, Eona’s “contraire” mentor who is a man living as a woman
