Twelve-year-old Eon is in the running to become the next Dragoneye, the intercessor between man and the energy dragons. Eon has a secret: Eon is actually Eona, a year-old girl forced by qualification to live her life as a boy. Females are forbidden to use Dragon Magic and her consequences would be dire if she were ever discovered. Worse than being female, she is also a cripple, which puts her beneath the other Dragoneye contenders. Now, Eona must hide her femininity and transcend her disability to avoid suspicion, all while being caught in the middle of a political battle for power divided by the emperor and the ruthless Lord Ido.

Because females are forbidden to practise the Art, Eona endures years of study concealed as a boy.
Eona becomes Eon, and a dangerous gamble is put into play. Eon's unprecedented display of skill at the Dragoneye ceremony places him in the centre of a power struggle between the Emperor and his High Lord brother. The Emperor immediately summons Eon to court to protect his son and heir.

Eon: Dragoneye Reborn
It follows the story of Eon, who has potential to become a Dragoneye, being able to control wind, water and land. However, Eon is actually a female concealed as a boy, and with females forbidden, she becomes a dangerous gamble. Eon has been studying the ancient art of Dragon Magic for four years, hoping he'll be selected as apprentice to a Dragoneye. Dragoneyes are the human links to the twelve dragons of good fortune, who provide energy to the earth. However, circumstance does not favour Eon; he is a cripple and despised by the trainers and other candidates for the ceremony. They believe his disability embodies bad luck and try to distance themselves, all except a boy named Dillon who is also bullied for his small size.
