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...
Lord Ido, a crazy royal, wants Eon's power, and will do anything to have it. I think its an amazing book, and can't wait to read Eona The Last Dragon Eye.
The story is based on the Chinese Animals, The Rat, the Horse, the Pig, the Snake, the Rooster, the Monkey, the Goat etc....... The Mirror Dragon, however, has been missing for 500 years, and when Eon gets chosen, it causes a big commotion. Its a wonderful story , and personally, kind of hard to follow. I skimmed through most of it, unable to bear the suspense. Picture above: Alison Goodman, Australian author.
