This book has been checked out.  A lot.  A whole lot.  I finally decided to read it over Spring Break to see what all the fuss was about.  WOW!  I can’t believe it took me this long to read this book!  Have you read it?  Why not?

Don’t let the 500+ pages fool you.  This is a great, fast-moving read.  It’s about a boy who is actually a girl.  Eon was taken in by a “master” former Dragoneye.  Dragoneyes are people who have a rare ability to see and communicate with a dragon.  The dragoneyes are chosen by the dragon.

Eon is trying to win the Rat Dragon’s choice.  She has a special bond with him.  However, no one is prepared for what happens at the Dragoneye ceremony.

This book takes the reader on so many journeys.  You’re forced to examine prejudices you carry.  You are taken on a spiritual journey.  You examine what friendship really is and finally, you examine what it’s like to be raised ashamed of who you are.  All of this is intertwined into action-packed pages of fighting, political intrigue, cunning warfare, and daring rescues.
