My take on Eragon

Eragon is a tantalizing read for Harry Potter, and The Secrets of the immortal Nicholas Flamel fans. It has plenty of magic, dragons, betrayal, love. Eragon the farm boy who gets thrown into the dying legacy of the Dragon Riders (the guardians of peace), before Galbatorix almost destroyed them all. Eragon has deep insights as to why he was chosen, he questions himself and who he is to become. While hunting in the Spine, the forest by Eragons home Carvahall, he finds a mystious blue stone that explodes in a raging turrant of fire when he almost bags a stag for home. Curiosity overiding caution, he takes the stone thinking he has the greatest find for a poor farm boy. Unknown to him, he has found one of the three existing dragon eggs. It soon hatches and he is thrust into a deadly world of magic and fate that the Dragon Riders face. He then finds himself fighting for himself and his dragon. He named the dragon Saphira. In order to restore his world plunged in chaos ,he must beat the Galbatorix.

I recommend this book because it was an interesting read. And so were the other parts of this series.
