Product description

One boy… One dragon… A world of adventure! When a poor farm boy, Eragon, finds a polished stone in the forest, he thinks his lucky discovery will feed him for the winter. But when the stone brings forth a dragon hatchling, Eragon realises he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself. Thrust into a perilous world of destiny, magic and power, his simple life is shattered overnight. Armed only with an ancient sword, Eragon and his fledgling dragon must tackle the harsh terrain and dark creatures 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 whole Empire may rest in his hands…

    This book is amazing, fascinating and unique even if it is about dragons! You bond with the characters, and get to know them. You also start to loath and hate others..Like Galbatorix… Totally reccomended!

    I like books about dragons because even though they’re not real every know what they are, this series just brings them to life and gives them lives filled with imagination and adventure. this is the first in the series and personally I think it’s the best

    This is a book about a young farm boy named Eragon who finds a mysterious blue stone. The stone hatches into a magnificent dragon. He knows that he must keep it to himself. Eragon doesn’t know the consequences which lie ahead…this is a fantastic book, I would whole heartedly recommend it!

    This book is AMAZING!! It is filled with fantasy, magic, mystery, and some comedy too. This book inspired me to write my own and although i am still working on my story, it is going along great. I have also read eldest and brisingr, the next books in the series but have yet to read inheritance which im pretty sure will be as fantastic as the rest, hopefully better. So this is a MUST read for everyone!!
