Product description

Master storyteller and internationally bestselling author Christopher Paolini returns to the World of Eragon with Murtagh. Murtagh, a stunning epic fantasy set a year after the events of the Inheritance Cycle, will publish in 2023.

The first book in The Inheritance Cycle.

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. . .

    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!

    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!!
