You know that feeling when you touch a book and you knew it will be your favorite? This book gave me that kind of feeling. I have never read anything quite like Eon. Maybe it was because I used to dislike everything about dragons and celestial and Asians (even though I'm Asian). This book made me utterly engrossed and obsessed. I just can't have enough of dragons!
It's the first book after a long, painful time that stirred feelings inside me. As I devoured each words, I was able to see through Eona's eyes. I felt her ache. I felt her fear. I was her. It was such a magnificent experience. If only I could brainwash my memory and reread this book again and again.
The best part about this book was that you never knew what is coming. Trust me when I say, expect the unexpected. It seemed for me that the truth was there, right before my eyes, and yet I was oblivious about it. Excuse my slow slow brain. The plot twists and turns drove me crazy. I looked like a mad person gasping and wincing and kicking in public because I was so immersed in the captivating island Alison has created. I brought this book everywhere; from the bathroom, cafe, and to my school. So I was indeed humiliating myself when I screamed 'What the fuck?!' throughout this book. It's actually the perfect 3 words to describe this book; what the fuck. But in a good way of course.
I also like the fact that I was able to understand the antagonist, Lord Ido. I pitied him and to me, he was becoming less and less evil each time. I still can't help but wondering, though. Why didn't Alison created Ido as somewhat beautiful? Ido did have deep connections with Eona and it could developed into something so much more. A friendship maybe, or even a love line. Ido's character kinda reminded me of Warner from Shatter Me. He gave the same love & hate relationship. You just can't help but grew fond of them. I'm eager to meet Ido in the sequel.
I can't wait to read the sequel but at the same time I restrained myself from reading because it would mean THE END. The end of this epic duology would also mean the end of me. I would have no Eona, no Ido, nothing, nada. I can't believe that it has been 7 years since the book first published and yet I didn't even consider it. Where have I been? Anyway, I highly recommend this book for high fantasy lover. A definitely must read. It will leaves dragon aura all over you.

I thought the story was depressing to the painstaking point. I mean, I'm a teenager and imagining it was very scary. But I decided to give this book a second chance and I'm glad I did so. THIS BOOK MOVED ME. SO BEAUTIFUL IT BROUGHT ME TO TEARS. It taught me about friendship, forgiveness and basically, life. Newton law and karma are the main theme in this story. A little bit of romance there and I love it! Not close to perfection, but it was a great journey. Recommended to everyone, because I know we all have a suicidal side in us. Even just for a tad bit. This story reminds that somebody loves us. Everyone deserves a second chance.
I realized then that for a few people (cough, Liz Emerson, cough) sorry seems to be the hardest people. ...more

It's very dark. LI was very intimidated by this book, from the author to the storyline and the starred reviews. But I chose to give it a try. Why not?
It's very dark. Like, erotic and dark and everything depressing. It stressed me out. Really. Don't get me wrong, I love the characters. They have depth and twisted mind. Everyone of them contributed to the story. Their presence is essential and I feel they are all the main lead. Not just Toru or Naoki or Midori but everyone. The characters reminded us that there's no normal people. People are crazy and strange in their own way. It's also a quotable book. I found many of their conversations interesting.
"If you only read what everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking."
Which is my favorite quote.
Many of you may disagree about my review or why I only have 2 stars for this beautiful story. But taste is relative, right? In my case, I despise depressing story because life is already hard as it is.
But I suggest you give it a shot. Maybe it'll turn out to be your favorite. ...more
