Eon--the award-winning crossover fantasy that soars!

Sixteen-year-old Eon has a dream, and a mission. For years, he's been studying sword-work and magic, toward one end. He and his master hope that he will be chosen as a Dragoneye-an apprentice to one of the twelve energy dragons of good fortune.

But Eon has a dangerous secret. He is actually Eona, a sixteen-year-old girl who has been masquerading as a twelve-year-old boy. Females are forbidden to use Dragon Magic; if anyone discovers she has been hiding in plain sight, her death is assured.

When Eon's secret threatens to come to light, she and her allies are plunged into grave danger and a deadly struggle for the Imperial throne. Eon must find the strength and inner power to battle those who want to take her magic...and her life.

Review:

"Lidell quietly emerges on the high fantasy market with her debut, which was a finalist for the 2010 Amazon Break-through Novelist Award. With a new king and an ongoing turf war between two moblike crime families, unrest is sweeping through the kingdom of Tildor. At the nation's elite academy, 16-year-old cadet Renee de Winter is determined to serve Tildor as a soldier. As the only girl in the Combat Arts track, Renee struggles to meet the demands of her new instructor and idol, Commander Korish Savoy, and prove that she's as strong as the boys. When Savoy's younger brother is kidnapped, Renee, her friend Alec, and Savoy set out to rescue him, uncovering secrets both personal and political. Lidell packs a great deal into her story: the romantic tension between Renee and Savoy (which, due to their teacher-student dynamic, wavers between uncomfortable and enticing) vies for space with the impending civil war, powerful magic-wielding mages, a black market drug trade, and more. Although at times slow moving, it's an intriguing story with a capable heroine. Ages 12 — up. Agent: Leigh Feldman, Writers House. (Jan.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Synopsis:

Tamora Pierce meets George R. R. Martin in this smart, political, medieval fantasy-thriller.

There is a new king on the throne of Tildor. Currents of political unrest sweep the country as two warring crime families seek power, angling to exploit the young Crown's inexperience. At the Academy of Tildor, the training ground for elite soldiers, Cadet Renee de Winter struggles to keep up with her male peers. But when her mentor, a notorious commander recalled from active duty to teach at the Academy, is kidnapped to fight in illegal gladiator games, Renee and her best friend Alec find themselves thrust into a world rife with crime, sorting through a maze of political intrigue, and struggling to resolve what they want, what is legal, and what is right.

Synopsis:

Incarceron is a prison so vast that it contains not only cells and corridors, but metal forests, dilapidated cities, and wilderness. It has been sealed for centuries, and only one man has ever escaped. Finn has always been a prisoner here. Although he has no memory of his childhood, he is sure he came from Outside. His link to the Outside, his chance to break free, is Claudia, the warden's daughter, herself determined to escape an arranged marriage. They are up against impossible odds, but one thing looms above all: Incarceron itself is alive . . .
