When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky
discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the
winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has
stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself. Overnight his simple
life is shattered, and he is thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic,
and power. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for
guidance, Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain
and dark enemies of an Empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds. Can
Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders? The fate of the Empire
may rest in his hands..... Congrats to Juliette Z. who won this book!
