Eon - Dragoneye Reborn

Book Review   by:Senbonsakaura     Original Author: Alison Goodman
ª
 
Eon - false name, false identity, true gift ... Eon is the only person in the kingdom, able to see all 12 dragons. It's the only reason he became a candidate to the title of Dragoneye - a member of the council keeping order and peace in the empire. The day of the trial is coming near. Only 1 of 12 students will be selected by the Rat-Dragon. For each student it is a matter of life and death. Eon will have to stand before the dragons - the guardians of truth and order. But no one knows that Eon ... is a girl. From the moment in which Eon stands before a the Dragon’s Mirror, the history of the kingdom will change its course, in a way that nobody expected ... even her Master.
"Eon" is a very interesting position in the current fantasy market. A novel is particularly the world created by the author, referring to the myths of the Far East - especially China. For this reason, "Eon" stands out from other fantasy books.
The characters are interesting and psychologically complicated. The author showed in them hopes and fears common to both the people of the lower classes (slaves) and the imperial family. Eon figure shows us not so much a struggle for power, but more struggle for survival, during which the heroine grows up, and face the prejudices and expectations of the environment. This is basically a story about how hard it is to be yourself in a society that does not accept it. The story is extremely addictive and the action moves quickly, drawing the reader ever deeper into the intrigues of the imperial court.
On a scale of 1-10 I give the book 7 points. I recommend!
