Question: Have you had a character that disappointed you? One that you fell in love with and then "broke up" with later on in either the series or a stand-alone book? Tell us about him or her.
For me, it's going to have to be Eon/Eona. I loved the idea of this book. Girl masquerading as a boy (I have a weakness for these stories). Eona is chosen to be a dragon-eye, a powerful position in society where she is linked to a dragon's energy. But women are forbidden to practice dragon magic, so she must hide her femininity or lose her newfound position. The Oriental setting is rich and wonderful. Beginning Eon is crippled and compassionate, just the type of character you want to cheer for.
But by the end I felt frustrated with Eona's stupidity. There was a dilemma that any normal person would've QUICKLY SOLVE. But Eona stumbles along blindly ignoring the very obvious truth that's staring her in the face. So I spent a lot of time shouting "ITS SO OBVIOUS!!!!!!!!!" at the main character. Even though cross-dressing heroines carrying swords is something I love, I haven't had the heart to pick up the sequel yet.
One of my friends on goodreads summarized my frustrated perfectly in the form of a bar graph. Check it out.
