Now in paperback! 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.A New York Times BestsellerA USA Today BestsellerA Wall Street Journal BestsellerA Book Sense Bestseller
One of my many favorite Dragon books! Right from the beginning you are thrust into the action of a warring world. I truly thought the beginning of Eragon was like a prologue, but It turns out it was it the same time period! Now, the main antagonist shows that elegant sense of Corrupt Royalty which I love in reigning antagonists!
Now Eragon himself seemed like a bumbling teenager(Boy that reminds me of someone =3) who knew nothing of the outside world. But who would’ve thought he would have Insane Character Development, along with him being the Protagonist. I also love how Saphira is owning him like a slave in the early parts.
I also found it quite sad for many of the deaths in this book. Trust me, ALOT OF PEOPLE DIE in this book. Like a massacre! But I found it a great book. I especially loved the comedy moments throughout the books. Even after the thrill ride of this great book, it left us with the thought, what happened to the elder brother?
