When hunting, Eragon (who is a normal farm boy from Carvahall) discovers a mysterious blue stone, which soon hatches… A DRAGON!
Eragon’s simple farming life takes an unexpected turn, making him a Dragon Rider, a legendary peacekeeper against the perils and evils in Alagaësia.
One of my favorite scenes is when Saphira hatches and gives Eragon his Shining Palm. I think it was very lucky Brom came to help Eragon; Brom gives Eragon ‘Zar’roc’, a red Rider’s sword. Another of my favorites is when Eragon does magic for the first ever time and shouts “Brisingr!” at the Urgals.
I also loved the chapters where Brom and Jeod reunite after years.
I like it when Eragon meets Murtagh, who saves Eragon and Saphira from the Ra’zac, but not before the horrible creatures fatally wound Brom who, very sadly dies but before he does, Brom reveals to Eragon that he was a Dragon Rider too. I think it’s great when Murtagh rescues Eragon and the elf woman, Arya from a prison in Gil’ead and manage to get her to the Varden in Tronjheim.
I would recommend Eragon to, Katie McGrath (if she hasn’t read it already), my friend Freyja and Claire Hosterman. Katie is my favourite actress; Claire is my singing teacher who taught me to open my wings and fly (hence Eragon) and Freyja because she is one of the most awesome people I know.
