When a young farm boy named Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery that will perhaps help buy his family food for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy older than the kingdom itself: the legacy of the Dragon Riders.
Overnight, Eragon's simple life is shattered, and he is thrust into a dangerous new world. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for guidance, Eragon and the young dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of a land ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds.
