Read Alison Goodman's blogs and other content on the Penguin Community. Eon--the award-winning crossover fantasy that soars! Sixteen-year-old Eon has a dream, and a mission. For years, he's been studying sword-work and magic, toward one end. He and his master hope that he will be chosen as a Dragoneye-an apprentice to one of the twelve energy dragons of good fortune. But Eon has a dangerous secret. He is actually Eona, a sixteen-year-old girl who has been masquerading as a twelve-year-old boy. Females are forbidden to use Dragon Magic; if anyone discovers she has been hiding in plain sight, her death is assured. When Eon's secret threatens to come to light, she and her allies are plunged into grave danger and a deadly struggle for the Imperial throne. Eon must find the strength and inner power to battle those who want to take her magic...and her life.
In case you missed this (which will be surprising if you think how many times i've mention it :P) i love dragons. I'm a little obsessed. Others like unicorns or dogs, i like dragons. First book i've read with dragons was Eragon (Hobbit doesn't count) and then Eon. Eon became easily my favorite book with dragons (i've read others after it too). It's simply amazing, not just because it has dragons but also with really strong characters, an original story and i liked how author finished it and said stop. That's it. No more. I liked the book so much, that i also gifted it to a friend (who he hasn't read it yet grrrr!) and it's always at the top of my recommendations!
