Description

Under the harsh regime of an ambitious master, candidate Eon is training to become a Dragoneye - a powerful lord able to master wind and water to protect the land. But Eon also harbours a desperate secret - Eon is, in fact, Eona, a young woman who has endured years of disguise as a boy for the chance to practise the Dragoneye's art. In a world where women are only hidden wives or servants, Eona's dangerous deception is punishable by death. Still in disguise, Eona's unprecedented talent thrusts her into the centre of a lethal struggle for the Imperial throne. Summoned by the Emperor to the opulent and teacherous court, Eona must learn to trust her power and find the strength to face a vicious enemy who would seize her magic and her life. Inspired by ancient Chinese lore and sharing the wonders of films such as 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon', this thrilling novel of deadly politics and dazzling swordplay is set in a brilliantly envisioned world where both appearances and loyalties can prove so very deceptive. This novel was first published in Australia in 2008 as The Two Pearls of Wisdom
