Eona: The Last Dragoneye (Compact Disc)
March 2011 Indie Next List
“When you've been anticipating a book as much as I have this one, there's a good chance that you will be disappointed. Happily, Goodman's sequel to the stellar Eon definitely does not disappoint! Facing the ultimate battle for control of the land she calls home, Eona finds herself waging an internal battle every bit as devastating as the war threatening to break out across the kingdom. Goodman's characters and her world-building talents are exceptionally strong, and I was very sorry to see this saga end.”

Once she was Eon, a girl disguised as a boy, risking her life for the chance to become a Dragoneye apprentice. Now she is Eona, the Mirror Dragoneye, her country's savior but she has an even more dangerous secret. She cannot control her power. Each time she tries to bond with her Mirror Dragon, she becomes a conduit for the ten spirit dragons whose Dragoneyes were murdered by Lord Ido. Their anguish floods through her, twisting her ability into a force that destroys the land and its people. And another force of destruction is on her trail. Along with Ryko and Lady Dela, Eona is on the run from High Lord Sethon's army. Sethon has declared himself Emperor. In order to stop him, the renegades must find Kygo, the young Pearl Emperor, who needs Eona's power if he is to wrest back his throne. Eona, with its pulse-pounding drama, thrilling fight scenes, sizzling tension and many surprises brings to a close an epic story.
