These are troubled times in the land of Alagaesia. The evil King Galbatorix rules the land with an iron fist. He is the last of the Dragon Riders, a band of heroes who once maintained peace in Alagaesia. Galbatorix betrayed and murdered the rest of the Dragon Riders to seize power. Farm boy Eragon dreams of a life of adventure. One day, he finds a mysterious rock. This rock turns out to be one of the last dragon eggs, and the dragon inside hatches when it chooses Eragon as her rider. Eragon must learn how to ride his dragon with the help of Brom, a former dragon rider and Erya, an elf princess. They are in a race to teach Eragon all he needs to know before he can be killed by Galbatorix.
