9780142417119: Eon: Dragoneye Reborn

Twelve-year old Eon has been studying the ancient art of the Dragoneyes for two years. Singled out by an ailing but power-hungry Dragonmaster, he is desperate for the chance to become a Dragoneye, the human link to one of the twelve energy dragons and its power. But he is playing a dangerous game: Eon is actually Eona, 16 years old and a girl. His true identity must remain hidden at all costs: it is forbidden for women to practise the Art, and to be discovered would be punishable by death. Now the Rat Dragon seeks a new apprentice and only one boy will be chosen. The twelve candidates approach the mirrors and perform ancient combat sequences to prove their worth. Let down by his injured leg, it seems that Eon is destined to fail, until a spectacular twist in events catapults him into the opulent but treacherous world of the Imperial court. Without a master to guide him, Eon must learn to harness his unprecedented natural power, while protecting the secret that could cost him everything . . . Set against a rich backdrop of Ancient Chinese myths and traditions and fraught with tension, this is a classic page-turner.

Review:

"A classy, classy read. Highly recommended . . . I fell in love with this book . . . The whole thing is an absolutely sumptuous experience from beginning to end" ( thebookbag.co.uk)

" Eon: Rise of the Dragoneye walks the tightrope between adult and child with consummate skill, immersing you in the atmosphere one minute and exciting you with intrigue and thrills the next. If part one of this stroy is anything to go by, part two is going to be a cracker, and I for one, cannot wait for it" (Robert Grant www.sci-fi-london.com)

"Highly recommended" ( Inis)

"An exciting adventure story with intrigue, mysticism, martial arts and romance . . . [Alison Goodman] skillfully weaves challenging themes of disability and sexual identity including the status of women, eunuchs and the trans-gendered throughout the book" (Rosemary Woodman School Librarian)

"In spite of several episodes of undoubted tension and several passages of fine writing, the action too often drowns in its own detail" ( Books for Keeps)

Book Description:

A thrilling fantasy set in Ancient China and filled with shimmering dragons, dazzling swordplay and deadly secrets.
