Eragon is the first book in the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini, who began writing the book Eragon at the age of 15. After writing Eragon‘s first draft for a year, Christopher Paolini spent a second year rewriting it and fleshing out the story and characters. Christopher Paolini‘s parents saw the final manuscript and decided to self-publish Eragon. Christopher Paolini spent a year traveling around the United States promoting the novel Eragon. By chance, the book Eragon was discovered by Carl Hiaasen, who got Eragon re-published by Alfred A. Knopf. The re-published version of Eragon was released on August 26, 2003.
The book Eragon tells the story of a young farm boy named Eragon, who finds a mysterious stone in the mountains. A dragon he later names Saphira hatches from the stone, which was really an egg. When the evil King Galbatorix finds out about Eragon and his dragon, he sends his servants, the Ra’zac, after them in an effort to capture them. Eragon and Saphira are forced to flee from their hometown, and decide to search for the Varden, a group of rebels who want to see the downfall of Galbatorix…
Eragon by Christopher Paolini: Critiques of Eragon often pointed out the similarities to other works such as The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars.

Eragon was adapted into a feature film of the same name that was released on December 15, 2006. It was directed by Stefen Fangmeier and written by Peter Buchman. The film starred Ed Speleers in the role of Eragon…
The novel Eragon begins with a prologue. A Shade – a sorcerer possessed by evil spirits – named Durza and several Urgals kill two Elves and chase Arya (an Elven-lady) through a forest. Arya has a blue stone, later revealed to be a dragon egg. Arya is captured, but sends the egg to the Spine using magic to keep it safe. It is later revealed that the egg was sent to the Spine due to its close proximity to Carvahall, where an ally of Arya lives.
Eragon lives with his uncle Garrow and cousin Roran on a farm on the borders of a small village called Carvahall. While hunting in the Spine, a large and feared mountain range, Eragon is surprised to see a polished blue stone appear in front of him. A few days later, Eragon witnesses a baby dragon hatch from the “stone”, and realizes that it is actually a dragon egg. Eragon names the dragon Saphira. He raises the dragon in secret until two of King Galbatorix’s servants, the Ra’zac, come to Carvahall looking for the egg. Eragon and Saphira manage to escape by hiding in the forest, but Garrow is fatally wounded and the house and farm are burned down by the Ra’zac. Once Garrow dies, Eragon is left with no reason to stay in Carvahall, so he goes after the Ra’zac, seeking vengeance for the destruction of his home and his uncle’s death. Eragon is accompanied by Brom, an elderly story-teller, who insists on helping him and Saphira.
