When Eragon finds a polished 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 soon 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….

"amazing book loved every minute want the next one"

"From paperback to audiobook"
I first read the Inheritance series when Eragon was first released. I loved the books. I haven't read these for some time and decided to get the audiobooks.
I'm not sure if it because of the film adaptation, but the voice of Saphira was outside of what I would have expected and liked. It slightly tarnished the audiobook at first but once I listened on, it was fine.
"Wonderful fantasy novel"
The story itself is faultless. Having read the book years ago, this audio version definitely did it justice.
I would say that I found some of the voices strange. Saphira's voice reminds me of the cookie monster, and a few accents struck me as strange choices; in particular the female voices didn't work too well being done by a male.
"A M A Z I N G"
I wish it would go on forever but why split it in 2. Money spinner Audible.
"Great little audio"
Very well read, great story, kids loved it, moving onto the next one in the inheritance cycle now.
Loved this book when I read it years ago. Now read very well complementing a great story.
I adore this cycle of books, always have and always will, I was so happy to see there was an audible version, my journey to work certainly got better!
The film was terrible
"Brings back memories "
I really enjoyed the book back in 2003, this unabridged audiobook is everything you need to enjoy the diverse story by a talented writer.
Well narrared with a few voices added for depth.
All in all definitely worth a listen to old fans and new.
