Eragon by Christopher Paolini

So this is the first book in a series by Christopher Paolini, who wrote this book at the age of 15! Yes, 15! It is a 544 page book that is simply the FIRST book in a series of FOUR. I am blown away by his writing and could not put it down. I am reading the sample chapter (of the second book) provided by Amazon on my Kindle until I can get the book from the library.

Here is the synopsis:
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.

If you read or know anyone over the age of 10 that enjoys reading I highly recommend this book (possibly the entire series…I will have to let you know.)

Also I want to thank my niece, Nicole for recommending these books to me 🙂
