Adding to the Dragon Magic with a strong female lead character

Also highly recommended:
Author: Alison Goodman EON: Dragoneye Reborn This was hard to put down once I was wrapped up in all the secrecy and magic!
(16 year old Eon is training/hoping to be an apprentice to one of the 12 energy dragons and carefully guarding the secret that she is a girl)
Book 2 EONA: the Last Dragoneye is due out December 2009!

Science Fiction Fantasy Series that Mary the Librarian recommends

Recent series that I've read and recommend:
Author: Christopher Paolini = Eragon Inheritance Series Book 1
(Eragon is an "orphaned farm boy" whose destiny is chosen forever when a "mystic stone" chooses him as its keeper. This is not an "ordinary" stone it is the last known surviving dragon egg! Eragon is the new dragon keeper and must fight against the evil empire and choose to fight with the Varden Resistance)
Eldest Inheritance Series Book 2
(Eragon and his dragon Saphira have just saved the kingdom from destruction by fighting the evil forces of Galbatorix the cruel king! Eragon & Saphira return to the elven land of Ellesmera for further training in dragonriding, swordsmanship and magic)
Brisingr Inheritance Series Book 3
(Further adventures of Eragon and the dragon Saphira as they continue the battle against the evil King Galbatorix)
IF you like dragons, elves, and magic stories, this series has great characterization and there is a hint that there could be a book 4!
