Reader Review: Christopher Paolini creates such a vivid world that following Eragon and his dragon Saphira's adventures across Alagaesia is truly easy and mesmerising. This classic coming of age tale is bound to keep you turning pages, and so a dauntingly large book soon turns into something that can't last long enough.
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.
“An authentic work of great talent.”— The New York Times Book Review
“Christopher Paolini make[s] literary magic with his precocious debut.”— People
“Unusual, powerful, fresh, and fluid.”— Booklist , Starred
“An auspicious beginning to both career and series.” — Publishers Weekly

Shade of Fear
Wind howled through the night, carrying a scent that would change the world. A tall Shade lifted his head and sniffed the air. He looked human except for his crimson hair and maroon eyes.
He blinked in surprise. The message had been correct; they were here. Or was it a trap? He weighed the odds, then said icily, “Spread out; hide behind trees and bushes. Stop whoever is coming . . . or die.”
Around him shuffled twelve Urgals with short swords and round iron shields painted with black symbols. They resembled men with bowed legs and thick, brutish arms made for crushing. A pair of twisted horns grew above their small ears. The monsters hurried into the brush, grunting as they hid. Soon the rustling quieted and the forest was silent again.
The Shade peered around a thick tree and looked up the trail. It was too dark for any human to see, but for him the faint moonlight was like sunshine streaming between the trees; every detail was clear and sharp to his searching gaze. He remained unnaturally quiet, a long pale sword in his hand. A wire-thin scratch curved down the blade. The weapon was thin enough to slip between a pair of ribs, yet stout enough to hack through the hardest armor.
The Urgals could not see as well as the Shade; they groped like blind beggars, fumbling with their weapons. An owl screeched, cutting through the silence. No one relaxed until the bird flew past. Then the monsters shivered in the cold night; one snapped a twig with his heavy boot. The Shade hissed in anger, and the Urgals shrank back, motionless. He suppressed his distaste—they smelled like fetid meat—and turned away. They were tools, nothing more

I loved this book. There were very few times where the story seemed to slow considerably. It was exciting and truly grabbed my interest within the first few pages, I just couldn't put it down. I've read this book many times.

Picked up this book for my children, but they didn't get it till I was through reading.
Engaging world to get lost in, characters that you find yourself rooting for and against, and dragons. You can never go wrong with dragons. Excellent edge of your seat adventure.
