Eragon Summary

Eragon: Book One (Illustrated Edition) by Christopher Paolini

Return to the World of Eragon with master storyteller Christopher Paolini in this stunning illustrated edition packed with full-colour paintings.

Celebrate the worldwide fantasy phenomenon Eragon, the first book in the Inheritance Cycle, which has sold more than 40 million copies across the series.

Prepare for the flight of a lifetime with Eragon as you've never seen him before in this dazzling oversized edition with brand-new full-colour illustrations throughout.

This is the perfect must-have gift for both new and long-time Inheritance fans. Soar high above the ground with Eragon on Saphira's majestic back. Experience narrow escapes from the gruesome Ra'zac. See the wonders of the dwarves' city-mountain, Tronjheim. Rich detail and painterly strokes make each piece by accomplished fantasy artist Sidharth Chaturvedi feel as if it's actually moving.

Fifteen-year-old Eragon believes that he is merely a poor farm boy - until his destiny as a Dragon Rider is revealed. 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. In this extraordinary work of art, Paolini's fantasy masterpiece Eragon is brought to life in an entirely new way through Sidharth Chaturvedi's brilliant illustrations that accompany the complete original text. This is the ideal book to return to the World of Eragon - experience the thrill and exhilaration of becoming a Dragon Rider all over again!

Published alongside the brand new hardback in the World of Eragon: MURTAGH.

About Christopher Paolini

Christopher Paolini was born in Southern California and lived most of his life in Paradise Valley, Montana. The tall, jagged Beartooth Mountains that rise on one side of Paradise Valley inspired the fantastic scenery in Eragon, the first novel in his Inheritance Cycle.

Christopher's journey to becoming a globally beloved publishing phenomenon is as magical as the fantasy novels he writes. Christopher was homeschooled by his parents and often wrote short stories and poems, made frequent trips to the library, and read widely. He was fifteen when he wrote the first draft of Eragon and his family self-published the book in 2001.

In August 2003, Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers published Eragon and it was an instant success, reaching a worldwide audience. Christopher's second novel Eldest was published in 2005, followed by Brisingr in 2008. Inheritance, the fourth and final book in the cycle released in November 2011. Additional titles in The World of Eragon include Eragon's Guide to Alagaesia and The Fork, The Witch, and the Worm.

Today, the Inheritance Cycle is available in more than 50 countries, and together the four books in the series (Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr, Inheritance) have sold more than 40 million copies worldwide.
