Eon has been a slave most of his life. Between the salt mines, and now being focused on sword work and magical study, he is attempting to become chosen as what is called a Dragon eye in his customs and life, where he will train alongside other Dragon eye’s for twelve years, when a new one is chosen.
There is a slight problem..Eon is actually Eona. Males are only permitted to work with the dragons, learn their energies, and secrets. If Eona is found out to be female instead of male, the penalty is death.
As she is in the performance platform, something happens in the middle of her presentation. One of the dragons that has been missing for the last 500 years returns. Of course everyone is excited, but, this poses a problem – Another candidate has been chosen as well, one of her good friends.
As their paths take on this new life, Eona (Eon) and her friends and close acquaintances find out secrets that haven’t been heard of for many, many years. Old enemies come to light, new alliances are discovered, war starts with the Emperor being killed by one of his own men. Eon and a few adversaries have come to save the country, the palace, and of course the world of Dragon Eyes. Will they have enough time and courage to do it all when it is needed ?
Non stop action, excitement, fear of the unknown, as well as courage to do something they haven’t ever done before. This book blew me away. Intended for juvenile fiction fans, which from what I have heard was a runaway hit when it was first published last year, is bound to have your child or even yourself glued to the pages until the last one is read wanting more.
You may have to wait a bit for the sequel. Eona is coming sometime in the beginning of 2011. I know I want to be first in line for the book when it is released ! If you are a fan of exotic fictional places, that take place a long time ago or even in a place you have never heard about before (fantasy) then this is the book for you. It has been a long time since when I was swept up into a book packed from the first page the last with absolute non stop action and adventure.
Trust me – go and get the book !
