This is an incredible book. If you like your fantasy with an eastern flavour and plenty of sword-play, then this is for you.
Candidate Eon is training to become a Dragoneye – a chance to become powerful, and master water and wind to protect the land – very tempting for a poor, crippled boy taken from the salt-mines. But Eon holds a secret – a dangerous secret that could make or break his chance to change his life forever.
Gripping and wonderful, The Two Pearls of Wisdom/ Eon is a ripping read from beginning to end, and is followed magnificently by Eona.
