    When Eragon finds a polished 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.

And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him.

    It's only been months since Eragon first uttered "brisingr", an ancient-language term for fire. Since then, he's not only learned to create magic with words - he's been challenged to his very core. Now Eragon must make choices - choices that will take him across the Empire and beyond, choices that may lead to unimagined sacrifice.

    Eragon is the greatest hope to rid the land of tyranny. Can this once simple farm boy unite the rebel forces and defeat the king?

    Het leven van de jonge boerenzoon Eragon verandert van de ene dag op de andere als hij op een jacht in de wouden van de onherbergzame Rug een raadselachtige blauwe steen vindt. Aanvankelijk is Eragon blij met de vondst, maar tot zijn grote teleurstelling wil geen van de handelaren die jaarlijks door de Vallei van Palencar trekken de steen van hem kopen. Dan geeft de steen zijn geheim prijs en is Eragon getuige van de geboorte van een drakenjong. Tussen Eragon en de draak, Saphira, ontstaat een hechte band.
