Description

One boy . . . One dragon . . . A world of adventure. When Eragon finds a polished stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon soon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself. Overnight his simple life is shattered and he is thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic and power. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for guidance, Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an Empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds. Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders? The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands...show more

Our customer reviews

Initially skeptical after seeing the poorly done movie adaptation, I was pleasantly surprised by this book and the rest of the series. A fantastic read and one I am sure to come back to time and time again. It has dragons, what's not to like?show more
by Rebecca Croft
This book held my attention from the moment I picked it up. It tells the story of the brave young boy Eragon and his journey in becoming a dragon rider in a way that makes you want to read faster. Aside from having to flip back and forth between the glossary, this book is a classic that will be read for ages to come. Save a place on your book shelf for this magnificent book.show more
