Waiting on Wednesday (5)

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

by Alison Goodman
(April 19th, 2011)
Eon has been revealed as Eona, the first female Dragoneye in hundreds of years. Along with fellow rebels Ryko and Lady Dela, she is on the run from High Lord Sethon's army. The renegades are on a quest for the black folio, stolen by the drug-riddled Dillon; they must also find Kygo, the young Pearl Emperor, who needs Eona's power and the black folio if he is to wrest back his throne from the selfstyled "Emperor" Sethon. Through it all, Eona must come to terms with her new Dragoneye identity and power--and learn to bear the anguish of the ten dragons whose Dragoneyes were murdered. As they focus their power through her, she becomes a dangerous conduit for their plans....

Eona, with its pulse-pounding drama and romance, its unforgettable fight scenes, and its surprises, is the conclusion to an epic only Alison Goodman could create.

This book seriously needs to hurry up. I absolutely loved Eon. I read it in one sitting - I wanted to read a bit before I hopped in the shower, and ended up staying in bed all day to finish it. I've been waiting for this sequel for what feels like forever.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?


  1. Happy to find a fellow tea lover -- I love tea as much as I love reading :)
    Very striking cover on your book pick this week. Hope you enjoy it when it come out.

  2. Wow this is the second time I've come across this one in the last 24 hours. It looks like Eona will be a really fun, high stakes adventure kind of read. Thanks for sharing!

    This Week's Waiting on Wednesday: Burn Bright

  3. I'm so excited for this one as well! It sounds amazing and I would probably buy it just for that cover. I still need to read the first one, so at least that will tide me over until April:)

  4. @TheBookGirl: You can't have one without the other! ;D Tea isn't as good without a book to read, and books aren't as good without a huge cup of tea to enjoy.

    @Carissa: It definitely sounds much more action-packed than the first. :D

    @Jenny: You haven't read it yet?! But at least if you read it now, you won't have to wait so long for the next one. I've been pining for it for over a year now. ;_;

  5. Great pick!! :)
