I recommend the duology Eon (book one) and Eona (book two) by Alison Goodman

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Eon has been studying the ancient art of Dragon Magic for four years, hoping he'll be able to apprentice to one of the twelve energy dragons of good fortune. But he also has a dark secret. He is actually Eona, a sixteen-year-old girl who has been living a dangerous lie for the chance to become a Dragon-eye, the human link to an energy dragon's power. It is forbidden for females to practice the Dragon Magic and, if discovered, Eon faces a terrible death. After a dazzling sword ceremony, Eon's affinity with the twelve dragons catapults him into the treacherous world of the Imperial court, where he makes a powerful enemy, Lord Ido. As tension builds and Eon's desperate lie comes to light, readers won't be able to stop turning the pages...

okay ayanamifaerudo...i am so glad to read your review of this book..i have in fact read an excerpt of this books and i love it...but i have not yet acquired a copy of it...only the book two was available in my local i may have to wait for the first book to be available again.
same thing here i was really captivated with the setting of this series..its in Asia and i can't remember ever reading another YA book of this genre with the kind of heroine depicted in this book. I love a heroine that can really kick ass! This remind me of that disney movie "Mulan" actually. You got me intrigue about that cross dressing character...hehehe!
