Product description

Action--a stunning magic system--swordplay galore! Eon has been studying the ancient art of Dragon Magic for four years, hoping he'll be able to apprentice to one of the twelve energy dragons of good fortune. But he also has a dark secret. He is actually Eona, a sixteen-year-old girl who has been living a dangerous lie for the chance to become a Dragoneye, the human link to an energy dragon's power. It is forbidden for females to practice the Dragon Magic and, if discovered, Eon faces a terrible death. After a dazzling sword ceremony, Eon's affinity with the twelve dragons catapults him into the treacherous world of the Imperial court where he makes a powerful enemy, Lord Ido. As tension builds and Eon's desperate lie comes to light, readers won't be able to stop turning the pages ...

Review quote

"The author's plotting is elaborate, smart and capable of taking the audience by surprise. Enthralled readers will be hard-pressed to wait for the story's second half."--"Publishers Weekly," starred review "A mesmerizing story, a world so richly imagined that it feels real. No detail is overlooked, from the smallest sensory description to the fascinating mythos of the elemental dragons. Entangled politics and fierce battle scenes provide a pulse-quickening pace, while the intriguing characters add interest and depth. Readers will clamor for the sequel."--"Booklist," starred review "Fast-paced excitement carries Eon through this tension-packed adventure, where victory can only come with self-knowledge. This adventure, filled with intrigue, friendships, combat and magical allies, is a winner."--"Kirkus Reviews" "A refreshing change from the generic. This intelligent, vividly written tale grips from the first page."--"The Times," London "Alison Goodman has created a wonderfully well-rounded story in this, the first of a duology set in a faux Asian world. ["Eon"] deftly straddles the young adult and adult market. This coming of age story sports enough action and intrigue to keep the reader galloping along through Eona's trials and tribulations."--"Courier Mail," Australia "Fans of Tamora Pierce and Garth Nix will be riveted by this fast-paced gender-bending fantasy. Goodman's rousing mix of swordplay, magic, adventure, and Asian astrology is inventive and enthralling."--"Parents Express" "Goodman has produced an action-packed, well-plotted and acutely imagined fantasy that draws on the popularity of such films as "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon." Anyone who enjoys kung-fu movies will devour this book."--"The Age," Australia ""Eon" walks the tightrope between adult and child with consummate skill, immersing you in the atmosphere one minute and exciting you with intrig
