Perfect for fans of Lord of the Rings, the New York Times bestselling Inheritance Cycle about the dragon rider Eragon has sold over 35 million copies and is an international fantasy sensation.

Fifteen-year-old Eragon believes that he is merely a poor farm boy—until his destiny as a Dragon Rider is revealed. Gifted with only an ancient sword, a loyal dragon, and sage advice from an old storyteller, Eragon is soon swept into a dangerous tapestry of magic, glory, and power. Now his choices could save—or destroy—the Empire.

Students are mesmerized by the story. I think everyone secretly desires to have the power to change the world for the better. Christopher Paolini has done a masterful job of showing how difficult it is to tread the line between ego and true goodness and the relationship between Eragon and the storied character of dragons is always compelling and hugely readable. Great book, great series!
