Not so very long ago, Eragon—Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider—was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders.
The Rider and his dragon have come farther than anyone dared to hope. But can they topple the evil king Galbatorix and restore justice to Alagaësia? And if so, at what cost?
About the Author
Christopher Paolini's abiding love of fantasy and science fiction inspired him to begin writing his debut novel, "Eragon," when he graduated from high school at fifteen after being homeschooled all his life. Both "Eragon" and "Eldest," the second book in the Inheritance cycle, became instant "New York Times" bestsellers. Christopher is currently at work on "Brisingr," the third volume in the cycle. He lives in Montana, where the dramatic landscape feeds his visions of Alagaesia.
