This is the first book of four books in the Inheritance Cycle.
Eragon is a young farmer that has his life turned up side down when he finds an odd stone in the Spine. A dragon hatches from the stone and Eragon later names her Saphira. Eragon and Saphira become rider and dragon. The King, the only person other then Eragon in the kingdom to have a dragon, wants to control him. Brom, the local storyteller becomes their guide and leads them on there journey. They all set out to find the Varden, a group fighting the King. They learn and grow as a team facing many trials on their journey.
I enjoyed this book. It has a smooth flow with colorful descriptions. The characters are easy to like and are engaging.
