Hi everyone! Ash here. We’re starting a new way of rating books, since we keep doing four-point-this and four-point-that. We’re doing it in pens: 0 pens sucks, 10 pens rocks!
Eon: Dragoneye Reborn, by Alison Goodman, is an amazing book in many ways, so I’m giving it 7.8 pens. (Oops. I did something-point-something.) It is set in China, with the Chinese custom of years being a prominent influence. The protagonist is a girl, a girl who wants to be a Dragoneye is a world where men are dominant. Not only is she a girl who wants to be a Dragoneye, she is a crippled girl who wants to be a Dragoneye. So it’s all, like, the weak rise up to defeat the strong.
As if. When the Rat Dragon (remember, this is based on the Chinese years!) appears in front of the select boys (and the secret girl), and selects… not Eon. Definitely not Eon. And while we’re wallowing in sadness, remember, Lord Eon is actually Lady Eona. And she’s not twelve, she’s sixteen.
When Eon’s secret comes to life, she must fight to keep the Imperial crown in safe hands. She must find the strength to fight the people who want to take her power. Oh, and her life.
Hope you like!
