The Lovereading4Kids comment
Eragon is the first in Paolini’s Inheritance trilogy. For those teenagers and adults alike who’ve enjoyed The Lord of the Rings or indeed The Dark Materials trilogy we think you’ll really enjoy the magic, the power and the storytelling of the Eragon series. The characters and the plot will get so under your skin that you’ll feel you’re in that world.
A 'piece of passion' from the publisher:
On 7th July we were delighted to reissue the first three books in Christopher Paolini's compelling fantasy Inheritance Sequence: Eragon, Eldest and Brisingr with special coloured edges. The novels have been international publishing sensations, featuring dragons, death defying battles and epic conquests, with 49 foreign language editions for Eragon alone, and sales of 25 million copies worldwide. The countdown has now begun to the publication of Inheritance, the fourth and final novel in Christopher's sequence, which will be released on 8th November.
Eragon by Christopher Paolini
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.
