"'A compelling and action-filled adventure ... a galloping good example of its genre'" Daily Telegraph "'This book is an achievement. Readers ... will be transported'" Sunday Times "'A portrayal of true affection between boy and dragon - Paolini writes like someone gripped by his own story'" Guardian "'A stirring fantasy of epic proportions'" The Bookseller "Mentioned in the Christmas Round Up - The huge saga of dragons and elves is remarkable for outseleing Harry Potter...and pretty pacy too." -- Georgia Metcalfe Daily Mail
