Eragon and his dragon Saphira need to defeat King Galbatorix to take back Alagaesia and free its people from the Kings reign. Along the way, Eragon and Saphira face many challenges and some secrets are revealed. Eragon is faced with some tough decisions and as a result he makes some promises that will be difficult to keep. Can this farm boy defeat the King and free the land? Is this too much for this rider and the last female dragon of their time.
Eragon is a farm boy from Carvahall who finds a dragon egg one day while hunting in the Spine. Eragon lives with his uncle and cousin because his mom died when he was little and he doesn’t know who his dad is. The egg Eragon finds contains the last female dragon (Saphira) of their time. When Saphira comes into Eragon’s life, his life is changed forever. Eragon becomes the last dragon rider and in the process, he grows up to be a brave hero.
What I liked most about this book was the fighting because it seemed so real. The author did a great job of illustrating many of the scenes in my mind. In the book when people fought I could imagine it perfectly and that really kept my attention. The author made it sound so life like and very action packed that I really enjoyed this book.
I would recommend this book to people that like action movies because it makes a movie in their head. People who like strong characterization will enjoy this book. It is a great book that keeps your attention and I would recommend this book to anybody that just likes to read.
