Eragon is a fifteen year old orphan who lives with his uncle and his family on the edge of the spine in Carvahall. But one day, he finds a mysterious silvery-blue rock and keeps it, not knowing that it would change his life for better and for worse.
Soon after finding it, he wakes up in the middle of the night after hearing strange noises. In that moment a dragon hatches out of the rock.
He had been chosen to be the next dragon rider. But would he choose to be good or evil?
I think this book is fantastic, so much so, that I am now reading the third book, and can’t wait for the fourth and final one in the cycle to be released. The book is well written, in the sense that nothing that shouldn’t be is left unexplained and the characters are fully developed, so much so that you can often predict their reactions.
I would recommend it to anyone around my age who is a good reader, or older, as it can be difficult to get into, at the beginning! It is fantasy fiction and also uses a lot of good vocabulary.
