Eona: The Last Dragoneye - Alison Goodman Even better then Eon. Complex, intricate worldbuiling, with obvious Asian influences, a strong, conflicted and above all, realistic main character made this easily one of my favorites for this year. I'm seriously impressed with Alison Goodman and how much she grew as a writer over the course of these two novels. I was so riveted, wracked with emotional whiplash over the course of the novel that I finished this 630+ page novel in one day. It's consumingly readable.Wonderful.
