Publisher's Summary

One boy. One dragon. A world of adventure.

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.

Be sure to listen to Eldest, the sequel to Eragon.

What the Critics Say

"It's an impressive start to a writing career that's sure to flourish." (Booklist)
"Doyle's range of accents is perfect for the multiple characters of this epic....On paper Eragon is a sprawling fantasy, filled with obvious nods to Tolkien and too many convenient plot devices. But on audio, it fills the ears with vivid characters, witty dialogue, and nail-biting battle scenes set in a magical world where a beautiful blue dragon and her rider are at the noble center of it all." (AudioFile)
"An impressive epic fantasy." (Publishers Weekly)
"An authentic work of great talent. The story is gripping;...it moves with force." (The New York Times Book Review)

    Story
    "Formulaic"

    It was about what you would expect from an author his age. The story was very standard fantasy. Boy, special powers, teacher, bad guy, beautiful girl, epic journey. I'm a fan of the genre so I enjoyed it.

    The character development was a little weak but the story and action were good. Eragon's inherent distrust of everyone around him was fairly interesting.

    "Great book"

    Only problem i had was the dragon's voice, otherwise everything was solid. The book itself is very interesting to anyone who likes fantasy.

    Story
    "A spell binding book of unimaginable quality."

    It has been to long since I have read a book like this. Brilliantly written and told in an absolutely wonderfully imaginative fashion that has left me starving to read the next book in the series. This story was perfect in all the ways that matter most to make a perfect book. I recommend this book very highly.
