Let's Booktalk: Eragon by Christopher Paolini

Courtesy of Goodreads
Eragon lives in Palancar Valley of Alagaesia. Daily life for Eragon is helping his family to run the farm and haggling with traders for a good price. Yet, fate will intervene when Eragon is given a strange blue stone.

"Suddenly a crack appeared on the stone. Then another and another. Transfixed, Eragon leaned forward...Standing in front of him, licking off the membrane that encased it, was a dragon."

Saphira is a beautiful blue dragon. She and her dragon rider Eragon will grow, learn, and fight together in the coming battle against the evil Galbatorix. Galbatorix is proclaimed king of Alegaesia, and the reason dragon riders and dragons had become all but extinct.

Is the age of the dragon rider returning? Will Eragon and Saphira be able to do what must in order to defeat Galbatorix? All that is known for sure is that Eragon's story is only the beginning of the Inheritance Cycle.
