Eon--the award-winning crossover fantasy that soars!
Sixteen-year-old Eon has a dream, and a mission. For years, he's been studying sword-work and magic, toward one end. 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.
But Eon has a dangerous secret. He is actually Eona, a sixteen-year-old girl who has been masquerading as a twelve-year-old boy. Females are forbidden to use Dragon Magic; if anyone discovers she has been hiding in plain sight, her death is assured.
When Eon's secret threatens to come to light, she and her allies are plunged into grave danger and a deadly struggle for the Imperial throne. Eon must find the strength and inner power to battle those who want to take her magic...and her life.

I normally like young adult novels. I enjoy watching characters learn and develop and grow into better human beings. I DID NOT like this series.
The first book in this series has a couple of redeeming factors. There is a trans character who is treated as a normal human being, which I appreciated. The magic system is a bit derivative, but still fairly interesting. But those are the only things I really liked about it. The lead character, that some have described as a "strong female lead" is anything but. She is female. I'll give them that. But she is a spineless weak-willed whiner who is acted upon rather acting. She is neither strong, nor a leader. Which doesn't make any sense, since she has apparently been training for three years in order to eventually become one of the most powerful leaders in the land.
I spent most of the first book waiting for the girl to grow a spine and being disappointed. We are "treated"? throughout to long frustrating internal monologues in which she tells herself how unworthy she is and whines about why did this power and responsibility have to be hers. (The power and responsibility she apparently spent three years training to achieve) Because I hate not finishing books, and these two books are basically just one story -- one very slow drawn out story -- I had to read the second book as well.
I spent most of the extremely long second book getting more and more frustrated with this pathetic character who never seemed to learn anything and continued to be manipulated by external events and the people around her. Spoiler alert. This stupid little girl allows herself to fall in lust with the power mad and steroid raged man who not only tried to violently rape her, but who succeeded in brutally murdering several of her friends and starting a traitorous revolt that resulted in the deaths of thousands. Yet, she still finds him attractive and enjoys interacting with him. UGH! I came to hate this stupid selfish little girl and was relieved when I finished the books and could put them away. BTW, she never did grow a spine. She was acted upon rather than acting on her own till the very end.
The only reason that I am giving this book two stars is because of the trans character. We need more stories that show trans people as people.
Eon captured my attention fairly quickly and held it to the bitter end.
I finished the book today, having to leave it to go to work, I found myself wanting to know what happened in the last hundred pages.
There were several sections of this book that captivated me, and overall I liked the main character Eona, and her struggle to power.
This book could easily frustrate you, or bore you with details though, as it did for me. I found myself skipping large paragraphs of detail that I had no desire to read, as I was more interested in moving the story along than having a very long winded description of their location. There are several points in the story where the answers to the Eona's questions are so painfully obvious that you just have to put the book down and silently curse her naivete.
Though with that said, the supporting characters are great, the plot is very interesting, and there are several very tense moments, if you managed to get into the story as I did.
Overall, I am very happy with it and will continue on to the next book!
