There was no bargain between man and beast. Sorry for the rant, but I really did not have any charcters I liked, other than Ido. She is kind of a hard character to like, but once you pass that hard shell of hers, you seem to love her.
Eona Series in Order – Alison Goodman – FictionDB
And we got not only romance, but a love-triangle. It was only after she did that that she was able to do what she needed to do. One thing that disappointed me about the first book was not resolved in the second either.
I would recommend giving the books a try despite my disappointment in this second volume, they are excellently written and the cast of characters is definitely unique in the fantasy genre. Apr 28, Lara rated it it was amazing Shelves: That would have made sense, but I loathed the whole love interest idea.
Eona: The Last Dragoneye (Eon, #2) by Alison Goodman
A disappointing follow-up to Eonthe opening begins with a display of dragon power and a hint about the fate of Lord Ido in Sethon’s hands.
I cannot quite place my finger on the reason, but nevertheless it didn’t work out as well.
In war, truth is the first casuality. I always felt so uneasy about the amount of secrets she kept. I was so hopeful and the beginning was such a tease.

I’d still recommend Eonbut would advise skipping the overly-long sequel. But I guess that’s expected in every book, because you have to introduce the characters …more In my opinion I think it is, as it got straight to the point. With great power comes great responsibility – how much violence is justified in war? View all 26 comments. I mean, if you thought a girl with dragons was cool Alison calls it “Pride and Prejudice meets Buffy in English high society”.
On the GR good,an up there it says this is a standalone but don’t believe that, you can’t possibly enjoy this book without all the background information from Eon. Alison was a D.
Eona wasn’t included on any major decisions within the war despite being the chief adivsor. Is there a good romance in this series? In fact, I never fully trusted either one of them. Romance You like a little romance in between battles for the empire? Eona frustrated me at times, but then again, I’m a bloodthirsty little thing.
Other things that bugged me: Most of the way through this book, I wasn’t sure where it was going, or what the point of it all was, but at the end it all came together, and the reasoning behind all the other stuff that had happened became clear.
This book continues with the theme of finding a balance, expanding it from the balance between male and female to include the balance between yoodman and tyranny and duty and love.
I feel like every issue I had with the 1st book of this duology was successfully fixed or improved upon in this sequel.
Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys fantasy especially if you like dragons: And there’s also beautifully done side-romance between Lady Dela Alias: There are a few parts that, taken a few steps further, could have easily gone the way of an erotic novel Alison Goodman, if you ever decide to go this route, please let me know.
And at least she knew that Ido was useing her. I don’t know about you, but if I were forced to be maimed my entire life or given to compulsion for a few moments, I’d choose the latter. So it’s no wonder that the “bad guys” are parodies, detailed as even more unscrupulous rapists, power-mongers, and outright demons.
And I kindda hate her for it.
