by Christopher Paolini
In the world of Aagaesia, a young boy, Eragon, finds a polished blue stone that turns out to be a lost, coveted, dragon's egg. Eragon finds his life woven intricately with this egg, throwing him into a world of destiny, magic and power, populated by dragons, elves, and monsters. Eragon and his fledgling dragon must navigate this dangerous world with dark enemies from an Empire ruled by a monstrous, evil king; taking up the mantle of a Dragon rider that will proove his true destiny, and seal the fate of an Empire in his hands.
