Book Review: Eragon by Christopher Paolini

Eragon (The Inheritance Cycle #1) by Christopher Paolini
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Synopsis: 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 soon 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. The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands.*

Eragon is one of the most magical tales I have read in a while, a stunning blend of adventure, enchantment, and good battling evil. This book will not disappoint you, and you will find it extremely difficult to put down. Eragon is one of those books you will have an intimate affair with: eating with it, walking with it (hopefully not walking into things. . .), and staying up far too late with it. Prepare yourself for a thrilling adventure, because once you start, it is irresistible.
