Great Dragon Books: Christopher Paolini: Eragon

Have you read Eragon? If you haven't ever been introduced to the first book in the Inheritance Cycle, pay close attention. Eragon, is a fantastic dragon book that leaves readers wanting to read more.

I love Lord of the Rings, and this book is somewhat similar. Except, that it is easier to read. Any YA fan that likes Tolkien should check out Paolini. I actually own signed first editions of all four books, and they are some of my favorite possessions.

A few years ago, my husband, kids, a friend, her mother and her children all loaded up in the car and we took a road trip to get these books signed. It was a lot of fun, and each of us walked away with a signed book.

Christopher Paolini was very kind, and spent a little bit of time with each of us as we went through the line. He also encouraged me to keep writing. I thought that was a really great thing for someone to do. So, if you're new to Eragon, check out this book and know you will love it.


About Eragon:

"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."
