Eragon by Christopher Paoloni
This is the first book in the Inheritance series and it is a really great book. I really like fantasy stories so I was hooked from the beginning. I don’t think that the writing is the very best, but the story is great. The idea of a boy and a dragon being linked and stronger because of it is very interesting. This book is a pretty easy read, but there is a lot of fighting so it may not be the best for younger readers. In this book, a farm boy, Eragon, finds a strange stone while hunting. To his surprise, the stone hatches to reveal a dragon. Now, pursued by the evil kings servants, Eragon must learn all he can about his new situation and try to find refuge with a mysterious group of rebels called the Varden.
