Description - Eragon by Christopher Paolini

The first exciting book of the Inheritance cycle.

The first book in The Inheritance Series

When poor farm boy Eragon finds a polished stone in the forest, he thinks it's a lucky discovery. Perhaps, he will be able to buy his family food for the winter.

But, when a baby dragon hatches out of the stone, Eragon realises he's stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

His simple life is shattered, and he's thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic and power. To navigate this dark terrain, and survive his cruel king's evil ways, he must take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders.

Will he succeed? The fate of the Empire rests in his hands. . .

Book Review: Eragon by Christopher Paolini - Reviewed by (25 May 2011)

I couldn’t put this book down! Dare I say it, but this work rivals that of the great JRR Tolkien. Ok, maybe I’m going just a little overboard, but this is a seriously good quality fantasy novel! Amazing imagination has gone into the creation of creatures and this is combined with excellent writing. There is wonderful light and shade in this book, you get a vivid picture of the characters and the setting. They made a movie out of the book and it did not do it justice in any way! I have read the second and third books in this series and am waiting in anticipation for the last instalment! It’s a great series for teenagers and adults, but if you plan on buying this for a teenager, keep in mind that the beginning of the third book is quite gruesome. Given that this is Christopher Paolini's first book, it's amazing! This is one talented guy. I loved this book and if you like fantasty I'm sure you'll love it too.
