Review: Eon by Alison Goodman

Source: Won in a giveaway from The Moody Teenager
Publisher: Viking Juvenile
Release Date: Already Released

I won this book in a giveaway a while back, and I didn't actually pick it up until I was contacted about receiving an ARC copy of the second book, Eona. This was one of those books with a cover that just didn't really wow me, and it was one that I hadn't heard of, so I didn't really think twice about letting it sit on my shelf, but I am so glad that Penguin Canada contacted me about Eona because it got me to pick up Eon, and it was amazing!

I absolutely love dragons, and I wish that I had actually looked at Eon earlier because I was definitely missing out! Alison has created an amazing universe in this series, and it comes with a vast history. I loved learning more about Eon's world, it was amazing and incredibly fascinating! If you've heard of this book, I'm sure you've also heard of the fact that Eon is actually Eona, a girl pretending to be a boy. I kinda loved that she was a girl pretending to be a boy, but I loved it even more when she just let herself be who she actually was. :)

Since I've professed my love for dragons, I'm sure you can already tell that I loved that part of this book. I loved how Eon had to go into the spirit world to see the dragons, the colours and the dragons' appearances were described beautifully and I loved those parts! I also loved the characters. Eon, or should I say Eona, was a complex character and I loved reading about her. The whole book is packed full of action, and political strife, but it's also a story about Eona finding out who she is, and that journey to self-discovery was wonderful. Lady Dela, and Ryko were some of my other favourite characters, as was Prince Kygo.

Eon was an amazing story! If you love dragons like I do, I'm sure you'll love it! Also, the history of this book is splendid, it was addictive, and I constantly wanted to know more!

Do you like dragons?
Do you like magic?
Do you like magic and dragons?

Well, then this is THE book for YOU! ;)

haha Has anyone else read Eon or are you thinking about reading it now? :)

Happy Reading!!!
