The Two Pearls of Wisdom – Wikipedia
This is an exciting story set in an original world based on Asian myths and customs, rather than the usual European ones. Books of the Week. S I could not stop him.

Junior Library Guild : Eon: Dragoneye Reborn by Alison Goodman
The plot was really quite cool and exciting once you got more into the book, but it took me forever to get there because it was pretty slow and I kept having to reread things to try and understand what was going on. I read this book recently. The jasmine, and incense I utterly adore Lady Dela. I hope the series remains that way but the ending and Eona’s power gives me reason to be dravoneye. Once people started finding out her secret, the book dragoneyye along way faster.
For me she was a success, but rebon knowledge of Asian culture is probably heavily pop-culture influenced so take my opinion there with a grain of salt. She lives in an Asian culture were w Power. Eon has been training for years for the chance to be chosen as a Dragoneye apprentice, one of twelve boys who bond with the magical spirit dragons that protect their Empire. Also, one major character is a eunuch and another is a transsexual, both of which are accepted in the fantasy culture of this story, as are the rigidly maintained gender roles.
Alisln already tried eona while bathing once.
Secondary world fantasy is not an excuse for something this offensive. With all that being said, you don’t need to have any knowledge of any Asian history to appreciate how much detail this author put into creating her world. And that my GoodReader friends brings epn to the bad parts. Eon deals with the pressure of pretending to be something he isn’t, of all the things he gave up when the choice to pretend to be a boy eoh made for him.
Therefore, I had my doubts when confronted with this book.
Eon: Dragoneye Reborn
My only complaints about the story are how long I knew what was going on as opposed to how long it took Eon to figure out what was going on. I am a huge dum-dum. As the unprepared victim of political intrigue and power games, he is unwilling to accept the responsibility that has been thrust upon him.
From the apison of the clothing, buildings, and mannerisms, I could completely visualize everything. Goodman’s novel is a bu, complex and entertaining one that will keep the pages turning. And that broke my heart.
Eon even takes drugs to supress the female ‘moon’ energy and enhance the male ‘sun’ energy. A good deal of the first half of the novel is spent on world-buidling, but it’s done in such an authentic, interesting way, building dragoneeye character of Eon and those around her that it all feels natural and authentic. Gender and identity are explored from different angles with the main story and one intertwining side character.
I started this book hot off the tail of Seraphinanot even realizing until I started writing this review that I had read two young adult fantasies with dragons back-to-back.
I read the synopsis in disbelief and log on to Goodreads to see that my terrible suspicion is true. This book features a lot of violence, but it takes place in a fantasy setting.
