I had to force myself to finish reading this story. I actually thought of not finishing it all together. I wasn’t really into with the story. Then again I don’t tend to read fantasy fiction. The story is about a boy who discovers a dragon egg and is destined to be come a great dragon rider. He is a boy with a great destiny. To me it wasn’t the best story, then again like I said it wasn’t really my cup of tea. I wouldn’t recommend this story.
I’d give it a 2 out of 5
Description on the Back of the Book

Overnight he is thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic and power. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for guidance, Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an Empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds.
Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders? The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands.
