So, do you like books with: Fantastic worldbuilding Sick of books Before you can decide whether this book is your cup of tea, the first thing you need to ask yourself is what you look for in a book, what makes something a good read for you.

So, do you like books with: Fantastic worldbuilding Sick of books that plonk a few characters into some random society with a set of oppressive rules and no explanation? Me too. This carefully-constructed world is built on power of different kinds - that of the imperial family and that of the Dragoneyes.

Who can you possibly trust in such a world? Exciting and flawed characters The flawed character is a particular literary love of mine. Because no one is perfect.

Maybe a lot of us would like to be heroes in a perfect world but this is far from a perfect world and we all have our limits, our breaking points, and most of us can be seduced at times by a dark alternative to the straight and narrow path. His Naiso? His lover? Eona is smart but the lure of ultimate power occasionally compels her to make wrong decisions.

She is, afterall, only a flawed human being - as we all are. But beyond Eona are other great characters too. Dela and Ryko, Kygo Ido is one charismatic bastard, full of amusing quips but always looking for ways to manipulate a situation to get what he wants.

I never realised how cool they were until I read this. Romance You like a little romance in between battles for the empire? Of course you do! And what about Ido? This book all comes back to power-- that between enemies, between friends, and between lovers. Goodman shows how easily power can be abused and how just a touch of it can fuel much bigger and darker ambitions.

Ideas about power and war. For example, if you have the power to kill ten people to save yourself and your friends, should you? How about one hundred? One thousand? In fact, I wanted more. You have been warned. However, I liked the idea that even the lowest of the low could have a little redemption and I thought that was where Goodman was going when Ido chose to save Eona instead of freeing himself from his torture cell. Instead of the power-hungry madman he became at the end.

Any thoughts?

Eona: The Last Dragoneye

Are you in isolation too? If so, what have you been doing at home? I feel pretty lucky that my husband and I can isolate ourselves and stay safe in this way, and hope you and your loved ones are doing okay. I was flicking through my photos and found this short video of me promenading around the Bath Guildhall ballroom at the Jane Austen Summer Ball last June be aware that it is better with the sound on. I went along to the ball because I am a keen contra-dancer and to research my new Regency series you can check out that new series in the Coming Soon ish page via the menu. It was a costumed ball, so you could only attend in full Regency gear, and we even had a Regency style supper. It was as close as I could get to actually attending a ball in that era and I discovered some very interesting physical details that will work their way into my fiction.

Dragoneyes are the human links to the twelve dragons of good fortune, who provide energy to the earth. However, circumstance does not favour Eon; he is a cripple and despised by the trainers and other candidates for the ceremony. They believe his disability embodies bad luck and try to distance themselves, all except a boy named Dillon who is also bullied for his small size. This feat is almost unheard of and they pray that the ascending dragon this cycle, who is the Keeper of Ambition, will be drawn by the enormous power demonstrated. However, Eon has a dark secret unbeknownst to all but himself and his master; he is actually Eona, a sixteen-year-old girl who has been living a lie in order for the chance to become a Dragoneye.
