As Eragon trumps through a forest, the Spine, he discovers the most peculiar stone he has ever seen. He takes this mysterious and valuable item, in hopes that he can sell it. With no such luck, Eragon stashes it away in his room, only to find that this blue rock is much more valuable than any offer; within the stone lays a dragon. In the incredible fantasy book, “Eragon”, the boy who happened to tumble upon a dragon egg now has a huge responsibility. He must raise this growing dragon and most importantly, keep it a secret from everyone... including his uncle, Garrow, who has raised him since he was a boy. But a secret can't be kept forever. When the Ra'zacs (who work for the evil Empire) start questioning the town of a beautiful blue stone, Eragon is forced to flee, leaving his uncle behind. On a journey throughout the land, he will be forced to choose a side, fight for his life, and make decisions that will change his entire destiny.
“Eragon”, written by Christopher Paolini, was the first of the thrilling adventure and fantasy series called Inheritance. The continuous fighting will keep you on your toes and force you to flip the pages as fast as your eyes can read. The action is awesome and each chapter gets more and more interesting. This is not your typical fantasy novel. This one is not completely predictable and mushy- gushy. The adventure is more dominant than the romance. In comparison, the written book “Eragon” is much better than the movie because the movie missed so much detail. Meant for both boys and girls, “Eragon” is a very lengthy book consisting of 754 pages, but if you’re like me, you’ll be finished in no time. If you love novels that involve fantasy creatures and want a really good series to engulf yourself in, read “Eragon.” You’ll love it.
