Eragon crept slowly towards the herd of deer and prepared to fell one to provide food for his family. Just as he was ready to shoot his arrow, the herd bolted and Eragon felt a fiery wind surge past his cheek. The herd was gone but in its place, in the middle of a charred, smoldering circle, was a blue stone. This stone was made of a hard substance and was something that Eragon had never seen before. The blue stone contained a dragon hatchling. Eragon and the dragon are soon forced to leave his small hamlet and enter into a world of magic and evil engaged in fighting the evil King of the Empire.
This fantasy book is a great story with twists and turns, deceit and love, evil and goodness. Eragon, as an unlikely hero, must save the kingdom from the evil which has been lurking for centuries.
The reader will immediately be engaged in Eragon’s quest and will empathize with the barriers that are put in his way. Eragon’s dragon is a loveable dragon and provides strength to Eragon when he needs it.
YAs will enjoy this book as will upper elementary students. If you like great stories that will keep you turning the pages late into the night, I would recommend Eragon as a great read.
