Das Vermächtnis der Drachenreiter (Eragon: Inheritance Cycle Series #1)

Overview

When Eragon finds a polished blue 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 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.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Teen author Christopher Paolini breathes fire into the realm of fantasy -- whisking readers to a world of dragons, magic, and legends -- in his first impressive entry in the Inheritance trilogy. Following in the footsteps of J.R.R. Tolkien and Terry Goodkind, Paolini recounts the harrowing adventure of Eragon, a peasant boy who one day discovers a strange rock that happens to be a lost, coveted dragon's egg. Eragon finds himself raising the highly intelligent creature (which he names Saphira) and bonds with her both mentally and soulfully, but after a team of marauders sent by the land's conniving ruler destroys his family home and kills his uncle, the boy sets out to hone his skills as a Rider and claim his vengeance. Paolini pays meticulous attention to detail and to the characters' actions in the book, letting readers travel eagerly with the young hero along every step of his journey. Sure to sit memorably with lovers of the genre and worthy of every bit of praise it gets, Paolini's foray into fantasy writing will transfix and entertain. Shana Taylor
Booklist
"Un debut impresionante en la carrera de un joven autor"
Books of Wonder Peter Glassman, Books of Wonder
"Eragon es un éxito garantizado para cualquier persona que ama la fantasía. En la tradición de JRR Tolkien y Philip Pullman, Cristopher Paolini ha creado al mismo tiempo suspense trepidante, con un mundo de aventuras protagonizado por un joven y el primer dragón nacido en más de un siglo. No puedo esperar para leer el resto de la trilogía."
Island Books Roger Page, Island Books
"Eragon es una fantástica historia de dragones, magos y harcas que llegará a todo tipo de lectores, Paolini utiliza un lenguaje detallado y extraodrinario, llevándonos de la mano a su fantástico mundo de Alagaësia. En cuanto comienza la acción, es imposible dejarlo."
Kirkus Review
"Una fantasía épica dulce y sólida"
People
"Cristopher Paolini hace de su precoz debut, magia literaria"
Publisher's Weekly
"Un comienzo prometedor, tanto del autor como de la serie"
Rene Kirkpatrick All for kids Books & Music
"Wow!Que viaje tan increíble!..Escrito de forma impactante por un joven de 15 años, Eragon es un libro trepidante con batallas, armaduras, seres malvados, aventuras y amistad entre dragones, humanos, elfos y nomos. Este es el libro que llenará a cualquiera que esté en busca de la gran serie de fantasía para perderse en ella."
Secret Garden Bookshop
"Eragon, una fantasía épica en la línea de Tolkien, seguro que gustará. Un joven de 15 años y su dragón, Saphira, son parte de un trabajo bien concebido en el que los lectores viajaran con agrado. Estoy deseando leer el siguiente libro."
The New York Times
"Un auténtico trabajo de gran talento".
The New York Times
Eragon is filled with nightmare moments, dreams, visions. It never falters in its velocity. Its plot is episodic rather than climactic; it is clearly part of a larger work. The 500-plus pages race past. I found myself dreaming about it at night, and reaching for it as soon as I woke. Like countless other readers, I am waiting to see what happens next, with wonder, with admiration and with hope. As Eragon's dragon tells him, ''All will be well, little one.'' — Liz Rosenberg
The Observer
"Una de las más extraordinarias historias del año"
