Eragon is the first book of the Inheritance Cycle series by Christopher Paolini. It follows Eragon, a farm boy who finds a mysterious stone in the mountains. He attempts to sell it, but fails, and later discovers that the stone was actually an egg when a dragon hatches from it. The boy and dragon, whom he names Saphira, bond, and Eragon becomes a Dragon Rider.

Eragon was originally self-published by the Paolini family in 2002. It was later re-released by Alfred A. Knopf in 2003. The book became a New York Times bestseller. The other books in the Inheritance Cycle are Eldest, Brisingr, and Inheritance.

One Boy... One Dragon... A World of Adventure.



The Inheritance Cycle fandom is mostly based around the books, and many book fans have a low opinion of the movie adaptation.
