Eragon

Author: Christopher Paolini
Title: Eragon
Number of Pages: 544
First Publication: 2003
Genre: Fantasy
Synopsis: "When Eragon finds a polished blue 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 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...."

I have decided to give The Inheritance series review in the third post about this series. I should warn you that I have read Eragon at least four times since I got it.

I give Eragon 5 out of 5 cameo pendents.

  1. I'm going to have to read Eragon eventually. I've been meaning to for a few years now, but it's so long I'm really going to have to be in the mood to read it, otherwise I'll never finish it. :)
