Eragon is the book I always wanted to read. It has wonder, awe, villains, and beauty.Not to mention dragons and magic! When I graduated from high school at fifteen, I was bored and looking for a project. So I started a trilogy! It took three years to finish this beast, but it was well worth the time. My whole intent with Eragon was to capture the awestruck feeling I always have at the end of a great book or movie. I wanted it to be so that when you, the reader, set Eragon down, you can only say, Wow! And if you think Ive succeeded, spread the word! Dance naked in the streets with Eragon! Anything to spread the word!
My favorite part of Eragon is the link between the hero, Eragon, and Saphira, the dragon. Saphira is wry, humorous, savage, and she loves Eragon utterly.Their relationship forms the central pillar of the story. As I wrote her, Saphira seduced me with her wit and intelligence. At times I felt she could see me, as if she were watching over my shoulder as I wrote the book.
Talk about pressure to make it right! I hope you enjoy my land of Alagaësia. Its as real and complex as our world, and perhaps a little bit nobler. If youve always dreamed of adventure, true love, and stunning vistas, then let me invite you into these pages.Only remember, its much deeper than you think, or expect.
