Perfect for fans of Lord of the Rings, the New York Times bestselling Inheritance Cycle about the dragon rider Eragon has sold over 35 million copies and is an international fantasy sensation.


Fifteen-year-old Eragon believes that he is merely a poor farm boy—until his destiny as a Dragon Rider is revealed. Gifted with only an ancient sword, a loyal dragon, and sage advice from an old storyteller, Eragon is soon swept into a dangerous tapestry of magic, glory, and power. Now his choices could save—or destroy—the Empire.

    This book is about a regular farm boy, who, after finding a dragon egg, is thrust in to a magical new world, full of monsters, elves, war, and hidden identities.

      This was one of the most amazing books that I have ever read! It is set in a place that I have never even imagined with magic and elves and dwarves. My favorite charecter is Arya because she is an elf and she is awesome and my name is alot like hers.

            I love this book!!!!!!!!!!! I love how detailed it is, and I even cried when the uncle died! I like the dragon Saphira. My friend's G-Ma is a really talented artist, and she drew a picture of Saphira for me. I'm not done with the book yet, but I can tell the rest of the whole series is gonna be awesome!
