* ArcNumber: Twelve. There are 12 dragons and 12 Dragoneyes.

to:

* ArcNumber: Twelve. There are 12 dragons dragons, 12 pearls on the folio strings, and 12 Dragoneyes.



* EasilyForgiven: Very much subverted. After being the villain of the first book [[spoiler:but having compassion pushed into his heart, Lord Ido turns out to be vital to Eona's survival, as she needs him to control her powers.]] She doubts herself and tries to convince herself that maybe he's changed, and her allies even start to worry that she's forgiving him too quickly, but she ends up viewing him warily.



* IHaveYouNowMyPretty: [[spoiler:Upon discovering that his enemy is a crossdressing girl, Lord Ido's plan goes from "attempted murder" to "mind-control-assisted attempted rape".]] Even in the second book, when he's ostensibly a good guy, he creeps on her enough that people start seeing him as a corner in a LoveTriangle.



* JerkAss: Lord Ido is definitely one of these.

to:

* JerkAss: Lord Ido is definitely one of these. Even after [[spoiler:his HeelFaceBrainwashing,]] he's still a complete douchebag.

to:

* MineralMacGuffin: The String of Pearls turns out to be an actual string of pearls.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Eona, a sixteen year-old sixteen-year-old girl pretending to be a twelve year old twelve-year-old boy.



* WholesomeCrossdresser: Lady Dela is a Contraire, a person with a man's body and a woman's soul. This is zigzagged when she cross-dresses as man.

Added DiffLines:

* HeelFaceBrainwashing: Explored near the end of the first book and throughout the second. [[spoiler:When Ido has her cornered, Eona uses her dragon's power to [[GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul force compassion into Ido]]. He lets her escape then and protects her multiple times afterwards, and while she's still completely disgusted by him, he starts to try charming her into trusting that he's changed. As it turns out, though, even though he's not an outright enemy to her anymore, he's still just as ruthless, selfish, power-hungry, and flat-out sadistic as he ever was. She finally tells him that, alignment switch or not, he hasn't really changed at all.]]

* CompleteMonster: [[spoiler: Wanna know the extent of cruelty High Lord Sethon has? He murders an ''infant'' and his mother, tortures Ido, and uses Eona as bait and uses her power against her allies.]]

''Eon: Dragoneye Reborn'' tells the tale of sixteen-year-old Eona, masquerading as twelve-year-old Eon. In The Empire of the Celestial Dragons , inspired by the history and cultures of China and Japan, twelve dragons representing the twelve-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac are connected to human apprentices. When a dragon is ascendant in the year it represents, it chooses its apprentice from twelve boys, each twelve years old, born in its year. Women are not allowed to partake of the magic of the dragons because it is believed that they would taint it. Any woman caught using the dragon magic is put to death.

There are currently two books in the series, ''Eon: Dragoneye Reborn'' and ''Eona: The Last Dragoneye''(Also known as ''The Necklace of the Gods''}.
