Kid, 12 years old February 15, How would it be to live a lie every minute of your life. Tension mounts and soon the battle begins.
And that my GoodReader friends brings us to the bad parts. I felt like there was just enough world-building to feel drawn to this world that is ruled by politics and magic equally.
It is is very ceremonious, very precise and measured. Dragoneyee probably figure out complicated mystery novels on page five. At first, the story is reminiscent of Alanna: 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. I really recommend it for high school aged teenagers. Based on 7 reviews. The book is by no means perfect, however.
I know I will not forget what it is about in several months, so yes, it is worth the 4 Star rating for sure!!!! I spent most of the first book waiting for the girl to grow a spine and being disappointed. I dunno, but if Dagoneye missed one page, I didn’t really understand what was happening anymore.
The details of magic and how it was used was very fascinating. This is explored through philosophical discussions and dilemmas, but also through characters. I don’t think I could do it. Rowling did with the Harry Potter novels, very few of them have really set the imagination on fire with an new, fascinating fantasy universe The success of the Harry Potter series with both children and adults has opened a lot of doors in the fantasy genre.
Yet you were up the creek without a paddle or just a lost little kitten. View Full Version of PW. There is a LOT of world building to process is in this book, but a familiarity with Chinese culture and history, and the sheer fascination of dargoneye myself in a world so far out of the norm, helped it all go down easy, Eon was a difficult book emotionally, but it was gripping and edgy and real.
And the pieces put into play in the first half begin to quickly play dividends in the second as revelations come fast and furious, all leading to the novel’s stunning and compelling conclusion.
It follows the story of Eon who has potential to become a Dragoneye, being able to dragonneye wind, water and land. Dragonehe, I had my doubts when confronted with this book. The book does lean rebon to a couple of fantasy tropes, but they are ones that I love, and everything around them is so well done, it doesn’t matter.
Eon kept making mistakes just constantly trying to be more manly. For years, year-old Eon has been training to be a Dragoneye apprentice, a coveted position in which the student serves as the condu I hardly ever read straightforward fantasy, but every once in awhile a book comes along that blows right past all my usual objections to become a new favorite. Luckily, at the end, only the Dragon knows whom and why they choose for their human vessel.
A good deal of the first half of the novel is spent on world-buidling, but it’s done in such an authentic, interesting way, building drqgoneye character of Eon and those around her that it all feels natural and authentic. Because women are considered weak and valued less than men, it is vital that Eon never reveals her true identity.
The reader could clearly see what was going on, but the character was xragoneye, deaf and dumb to all things logical all the way until the last chapter!!!! It’s pretty frustrating to know all the answers and to want to shake them into the character. Why must you frustrate me so? Alison Goodman Fantasy
