Günther Uecker. Twenty Chapters

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 the rich myths and traditions of Ancient China, this is a fast-paced, exhilarating page-turner that shimmers with energy dragons, and dazzles with deadly intrigue and breathtaking swordplay.
