Twelve-year old Eon has been studying the ancient art of the Dragoneyes for two years. But he is playing a dangerous game: Eon is actually Eona, 16 years old and a girl. Her 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.

Let down by her injured leg, it seems that Eon is destined to fail in her quest, until a spectacular twist in events catapults her into the opulent but treacherous world of the Imperial court. Without a master to guide her, Eon must learn to harness her unprecedented natural power, while protecting the secret that could cost her everything . . .

Set against a rich backdrop of Ancient Chinese myths and traditions and fraught with tension, this is a classic page-turner.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A completely gorgeous fantasy set in an ancient Oriental world, drawing on Chinese myths and tradition. Complex, vivid, and with themes of difference, it's a classy, classy read. Highly recommended * thebookbag.co.uk *
The originality of the tale, the freshness and believability of the protagonists and the epic landscape combine to deliver fantasy at its absolute best * The Bookseller *
Highly recommended * Inis *
The language and culture of this ancient world setting are beautifully realised and very descriptive, placing you right at the heart of each scene and one thing that is really smart is the way the Dragoneye ceremonies and traditions and history are woven into the existing Chinese horoscope without the need for excessive exposition * Sci-Fi London *
Set against a fabulous and exotic backdrop, Eon is a superbly paced and action-packed journey full of excitement, danger and romance * Lancashire Evening Post *
