Book Review: Eragon (The Inheritance Cycle, Book 1), By Christopher Paolini

A mysterious blue stone is about to turn Eragon's life inside-out, making legend his reality, and danger his constant companion.

Since childhood Eragon has heard the whispered tales of Dragon Riders and longed with the rest of Alagaesia for their return, but he never thought he would be the answer to those hopes.

An excellent beginning to the four books Inheritance Cycle, Eragon is entertaining, exciting, and just satisfying enough to be enjoyable with enough of a cliff hanger to leave you wanting the next book. The vocabulary occasionally feels higher than the targeted age, but not enough to make the story inaccessible. Readers and parents should be aware that it contains some disturbing images of death, injuries, killing, intoxication, fortune telling and the use of magic. Overall, a romping good tale.
