All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

When Lord Sethon claims the Pearl Emperor throne for himself, newly recognized Dragoneye Eona rallies to Kygo, the real emperor. She finds herself torn between an off-limits attraction to Kygo and an illicit passion for Lord Ido, the only other living Dragoneye. Rich setting, swift-moving action, and plentiful emotional drama will hold fans' attention in this sequel to Eon: Dragoneye Reborn. Copyright 2011 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

In this exciting if slightly overwrought sequel to Goodman's popular Eon, the author returns to the Empire of the Celestial Dragons to continue the story of Eona, the first master of the Mirror Dragon in centuries, who has been exposed as a girl. The new emperor, Kygo, has been deposed by his evil uncle, Lord Sethon, aided by the renegade Dragoneye Lord Ido, and all of the other Dragoneyes—except the novice Eona—have been murdered. Fearing Ido's power, Sethon has imprisoned him, and, ironically, Eona must rescue the traitor so that he can train her to defend Kygo. Distractingly, Eona loves the young emperor, but she also discovers that doing magic with Ido is sexually exciting: "I had to anchor myself long enough to pass the power. The straining muscles across his bare chest and shoulders held both menace and a sensuality that pulled me closer. I straddled his legs." Although this installment covers a lot of ground (perhaps too much), its flashy swordplay, spectacular magic, increasingly explicit sexuality, and elaborately constructed society should leave readers satisfied as Eona's adventures draw to a close. Ages 12–up. (Apr.)

Gr 7 Up—Pulled from the obscurity of the salt mines and into the dangerous life of a Dragoneye, Eon became the first female to bond with one of the ancient dragons of the Empire of the Celestial Dragons in centuries. As the second book opens, she has cast off her male disguise and joined forces with the beleaguered young emperor and his army in an attempt to take back the throne from his corrupt uncle, Sethon. Unfortunately, this also means that Eona, as she is now called, must find a way to work with her former enemy, Lord Ido, the Rat Dragoneye. This book is every bit as dynamic and powerful as Eon (Viking, 2008). Goodman's world-building is at once mesmerizingly beautiful and viciously treacherous, and Eona must discover her true allies in order to save the kingdom and the dragons. Recommend this title to fans of Tamora Pierce and Naomi Novik.—Jane Henriksen Baird, Anchorage Public Library, AK
