Read in March, 2009

Every year the ascending dragon selects one boy to become a Dragoneye apprentice and Eona, disguised as a boy, is a candidate in this year of the Rat Dragon. Not only does she have to keep her gender a secret (women are not allowed to be candidates and if she is found out, it means certain death for her and her Master), but she is crippled from a badly healed broken hip. Can "Eon" draw the attention of the Rat Dragon? Can he keep his secrets hidden? The fate of the Empire may be in his hands.

This is a very detailed fantasy based on many different Eastern traditions. Eon was a likeable character and I was rooting for her the whole way through. There's a lot of action and it'll more than satisfy any fantasy lover, plus it's a little different from the typical fantasy tropes. I loved the fleshed out supporting characters. If the writing had been a little tighter and the whole book had been shorter, it might have been near perfect.
