Eona is the sequel to Eon with its sixteen-year old heroine now revealed as the Lady Eona. Here, the excellently created Fantasy background to this world comes more forcefully into its esoteric and psychological own. Great battle scenes, danger and passion. At stake – the Empire and its young ruler, the Pearl Emperor. If he is to survive and ascend the throne, he needs her power to do so. But can she handle all the power she has amassed, ironically through the treacherous actions of Lord Ido who seeks to seize power and rule.
Lord Ido is not alone. He has his allies opposed to the first ever girl Dragoneye who feel doubly insulted as she has been accepted by the most powerful of all Dragons.
The action hinges around a red folio and a black folio. One of them giving the holder access to great power. Individual danger abounds as, helped by her closest friends, the now Lady Eona confronts the treacherous Lord Ido as they seek to steal them, leading to a fitting climax of battles between great armies and the resolution of the great romance
I felt very sad that there was no sequel to read.
