When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is a lucky discovery of a poor farm boy. Perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon soon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the empire itself. My favorite part is when Eragon kills Durza (a shade), because he hasn't had much training. I recommend this book to people who like fantasy books.
