Publisher Description

A new adventure hatches in the first book of the Inheritance Cycle, perfect for fans of Lord of the Rings! This New York Times bestselling series has sold over 35 million copies and is an international fantasy sensation. 

When fifteen-year-old Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon soon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

Overnight his simple life is shattered, and, gifted with only an ancient sword, a loyal dragon, and sage advice from an old storyteller, Eragon is soon swept into a dangerous tapestry of magic, glory, and power. Now his choices could save—or destroy—the Empire.

Features interlocking art that reveals an image across the spines of all four books! And don’t miss the most recent book set in Eragon's world, The Fork, the Witch, and the Worm: Tales from Alagaësia!

Adam-was my idea first ,

Lol! Copy?

This isn't a copy of lord of the rings... It shares a few general things in common, but it is certainly not a copy.
I really loved this series, and I've been waiting for book 4 for the past year it so. I just wish they could've made an epic movie series like lord of the rings. Yes many things are lost when making a movie, but let's just face it, the Eragon movie was so different from the book you can't even make a semi accurate sequel! I hope they remake it and put a little bit more effort into farthen dûr :) because the movie made it look like a crappy little village.
