Eragon & Saphira
Just watched the movie last Sunday with 3. I wasn’t interested in the movie beforehand. But after watching it, I was like.. WOW! Saphira is cute. Eragon is super cute! I found out that Eragon (Edward Speleers) belongs to the Decemberians! 21st Dec 1987. 7 years younger than me. Damn!
Even the author, Christopher Paolini, is younger than me who’s born on 17th November 1983 in Southern California. Cool. Eragon is the first book of three, he called it the Inheritance trilogy. The second book is Eldest. Maybe in a year or so the sequel to Eragon will be in the theatres. This reminded me, what happened to the sequel to Narnia?
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. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for guidance, Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an Empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds. Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders? The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands. . .
