Book Review: Eona
Eona is no longer disguised as a boy and has now become a Dragoneye. However, she can’t control her power. To make matters worse, she and her comrades are on the run from the evil Emperor Sethon. The only way to stop his terrible reign is for Eona to find the true heir to the Imperial throne: Prince Kygo.
While Eona is one hundred pages thicker than Eon, the plot is still fast-paced. There are many things that keep the book engaging. In addition to the sword-fighting that was present in the previous book Eon, you get to see more magic. One of the most extraordinary feats is the harnessing of lightning in a glass form. However, there is a dark twist to Eona’s magic that makes it difficult for her to use it heroically.
Another element that makes the story interesting is the romance. Even though this is hinted at in the previous novel, it couldn’t be developed because Eona was pretending to be a boy. Now, she is free to be passionate internally and externally about her feelings. Yet, it isn’t all roses and violets. There is a dark twist to it that is connected to her magic.
The only thing that was unlikeable about this book was its ending, which felt a little rushed and abrupt. Despite this, Eona was a great conclusion to the Eon/Eona duet. If you liked Eon, then you’ll definitely like this book.
