Return to the World of Eragon with master storyteller Christopher Paolini in this stunning illustrated edition packed with full-color paintings! Celebrate 20 years of the worldwide fantasy phenomenon Eragon, the first book in the Inheritance Cycle, which has sold more than 40 million copies across the series!

Prepare for the flight of a lifetime with Eragon as you've never seen him before in this dazzling oversized edition with brand-new full-color illustrations throughout. This is the perfect must-have gift for both new and longtime Inheritance fans.

    Soar high above the ground with Eragon on Saphira's majestic back. Experience narrow escapes from the gruesome Ra'zac. See the wonders of the dwarves' city-mountain, Tronjheim. Rich detail and painterly strokes make each piece by accomplished fantasy artist Sidharth Chaturvedi feel as if it's actually moving.

    Fifteen-year-old Eragon believes that he is merely a poor farm boy--until his destiny as a Dragon Rider is revealed. Gifted with only an ancient sword, a loyal dragon, and sage advice from an old storyteller, Eragon is soon swept into a dangerous tapestry of magic, glory, and power. Now his choices could save--or destroy--the Empire.

    In this extraordinary work of art, Paolini’s fantasy masterpiece Eragon is brought to life in an entirely new way through Sidharth Chaturvedi’s brilliant illustrations that accompany the complete original text. This is the ideal book to return to the World of Eragon--experience the thrill and exhilaration of becoming a Dragon Rider all over again!
