Eragon (Inheritance, Book 1)Eragon is the first of three books in the Inheritance Trilogy. It is a great next step for someone who, like me, has finished reading a certain seven-book series and needs more. It was written by a seventeen-year-old, which makes it even more amazing. The writing isn’t Dickens, but anyone who likes The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and similar novels would appreciate it.

Eragon/Eldest Trade Paperback Boxed SetThe hard-back version is being sold cheaper than at your local book store at, but you can also get all three books in paper-back for nearly the same price.

One Thought on “eragon”

    I’m gonna have to disagree with you on this one. Eragon and it’s sequel, Eldest are some of the most shamelessly derivative fantasy books I’ve read in a really long time (this coming from a genre that is often known and stereotyped as derivative). While it isn’t the worst fantasy book out there, new (and fresh from Harry Potter) readers can do a heck of a lot better. I recommend Tamora Pierce (especially if you like female protagonists) or, for those of you who prefer your fantasies set in England and don’t mind something a bit more grown-up than Harry Potter, Susanna Clarke’s excellent “Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell”
