Aidan’s Pick:
Eragon by Christopher Paolini

Eragon by Christopher Paolini

Eragon lives in a world under the control of a corrupted leader, King Galbatorix. Out hunting for his 16th birthday, Eragon finds a diamond-like rock which he tries to sell but that the other merchants refuse and become terrified of what is in his possession. He goes back home only to discover it’s not a rock he is holding, but an egg… Take a wild adventure with Eragon and his cousin in this action-packed book to defeat the evil that lurks in his home, Alagaësia.
