by Christopher Paolini

Eragon’s identity changes from that of a farm child to a Dragon Rider, a member of an ancient and forgotten race, after he finds, in his field, a blue stone which is really a dragon egg. He sets out after his parents’ murder and meets Varden, dwarves, elves, Shades and Urgalls, as well as an evil king in this complicated book. If you enjoy fantasy that includes a huge cast of characters and dips into an ancient language, try this first volume of <i>The Inheritance Cycle</i> series.

In the last book in the series, Inkworld is in danger and its “good guys” are floundering, drinking, and under siege until a “savior” arrives in the form of the Bluejay. If you are a book lover, check out all three books in the series about the universe of Inkworld.
