There is a lot riding on Eon becoming a Dragoneye, one of the powerful lords of this China who channel the power of dragons to influence the world and protect the land. However Eon has a secret that could mean death. Also one of the Lords doesn't believe that he has enough power, and has plans to gain more. It's an interesting read I found the characters quite believable but still wanted more at the end. I particularly liked the character of Lady Dela. Sometimes Eon just didn't seem to be thinking things through but the confusion of being immersed into a totally new world and with a new set of rules and lethal politics probably didn't help!
