Kurztext / Annotation

The first exciting volume in Christopher Paolini's bestselling Inheritance Cycle.


One boy . . . One dragon . . . A world of adventure.

When Eragon finds a polished stone in the forest, he thinks it is the 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.

Overnight his simple life is shattered and he is thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic and power. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for guidance, Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an Empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds. Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders? The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands...

Biografische Anmerkung zu den Verfassern

Als Jugendlicher entdeckt Christopher Paolini, der nie eine öffentliche Schule besuchte, die Welt der Bücher. Hingerissen verschlingt er J. R. R. Tolkien, Raymond Feist, die nordischen Heldensagen - und erschafft mit 15 Jahren eine ganz eigene, komplexe Fantasy-Welt.
