More About the Author

Christopher Paolini was born on November 17, 1983 in Southern California. He has lived most of his life in Paradise Valley, Montana with his parents and younger sister, Angela. As a child, he often wrote short stories and poems, made frequent trips to the library, and read widely. The idea of Eragon began as the daydreams of a teen. Christopher's love for the magic of stories led him to craft a novel that he would enjoy reading. The project began as a hobby, a personal challenge; he never intended it to be published. All the characters in Eragon are from Christopher's imagination except Angela the herbalist, who is loosely based on his sister. Christopher was fifteen when he wrote the first draft of Eragon. He took a second year to revise the book and then gave it to his parents to read. The family decided to self-publish the book and spent a third year preparing the manuscript for publication: copyediting, proofreading, designing a cover, typesetting the manuscript, and creating marketing materials. During this time Christopher drew the map for Eragon, as well as the dragon eye for the book cover (that now appears inside the Knopf hardcover edition). The manuscript was sent to press and the first books arrived in November 2001. The Paolini family spent the next year promoting the book at libraries, bookstores, and schools in 2002 and early 2003. In summer 2002, author Carl Hiaasen, whose stepson read a copy of the self-published book while on vacation in Montana, brought Eragon to the attention of his publisher, Alfred A. Knopf, which is part of Random House. Knopf published Eragon in August 2003. Eldest, which continues the adventures of Eragon and the dragon Saphira was published in August 2005, and in December 2006, Fox 2000 released their movie adaptation of Eragon in theaters around the world.

I love reading, but being a mother of 2 I had no time. One day my son was reading these books (borrowed from school library) and he was so exited, he kept asking me to read it as well. I finally gave in and started reading it. I thought I do not care anymore for magic, dragons, dwarves and elves! But the fact is, I enjoyed reading these books so much, I was lost in the world of Eragon for several days! These books are worth every minute you spend ion them. Awesome!

If you have enjoyed the ever popular Harry Potter series, or the Twilight series, and are looking for a new series to keep you reading, this is a winner.

For an author who was as young as he was when he first was published he did a remarkable job of creating this whole universe and characters in these books. These books are a bit long but are very easy to read and they are really an epic adventure to save the world from evil. You'll find the main character Eragon to be a loveable boy whose innocence and bravery are similar those of some of the great characters of novels past. You'll enjoy seeing him grow up and you'll love you'll the relationship he creates with his rare and special Dragon.

They are worth a read, and with the 4th and final book of the series set for publication and release now is a great time to start these incredible books.

This book is actually a combination of Eragon, Eldest, and Bisinger. This combimation is only $25, which $12 less than if you baught each book seperetly as ebooks. So don't listen to the idiot who dosen't read the book description.

Im now in tenth grade, but I have been following this series since my seventh grade year of middle school. In this time, I have read these books a total of three times and they get better and better with each viewing. At the conclusion of this series, I find myself more or less saddened by how great this series was.

This is one of the best series that I have ever read. It rivals Tolkien on many levels, but is in it's own world all together. I look forward to the conclussion of the series coming in November. I feel like a kid again, entering a world of fantasy and using my imagination again! Cheers

I'm currently deployed to Afghanistan and the product arrived within 2 weeks, and was packed very well. The books were in great shape. Good job to Amazon. This is an awsome series and recommend to anyone who is into mythology style books. If you like the movie " Eragon " this is a must have collectors item.

These book are fantastic. I am an avid reader of fantasy, and all 3 of these were very fulfilling reads. Christopher Paoilini is an amazing author and I look forward to all of his future publications. Thanks Chris - your work is stunning.

I would qualify as a reader who lacks any patience when it comes to waiting for the next book in an ongoing series and I actually waited out till JK Rowling exhausted the Harry Potter series before I ventured into reading the Harry Potter set. The Inheritance quartet is one that caught me off my guard and inevitably i landed up suffering from the when- is -the -next- one- out blues. The quartet by itself positions close to the Lord of the Rings genre and though lacks the intensity and detail of Tolkien, it still ranks as a reasonably good series to read.
The premise is fairly simple, lady luck shines on a simple peasant boy when he dicovers a dragon egg by chance, the dragon on birth mystically tied to the boy which confers him with the status of a Dragon rider. This in turn earns him the wrath of the evil tyrant Galbatroix, who is single handedly responsible for the extermination of the previous generation of Riders who maintained the peace in the land.
The series is set in the mythical land of Alagaesia which is populated by Elves, Dwarves, Men and Urgals with other species adding color to this motley mix. Eragon undergoes a painful coming of age where he witnesses the death of his beloved Uncle and sadly with the power he transforms into a loner of sorts. his adventures bringing him into the company of an elf princess Arya. The pace quickens as he slowly completes his education on magic with an elf as his teacher, which confers him with significant powers. He joins up with the Varden who are a group of rebels located in a remote corner, who lack the power to take on Galbatroix. Eragon (with a litlle help from his friends) manages to unite an army of elves, dwarves, men and Urgals and the battle begins in earnest.
