Christopher Paolini - Eragon - Band Time: ~ Stunden | Publisher: Random in MP3 / kbps Book 1: Eragon book | Eragon. Synopsis of Eragon,. Book One of Inheritance. Eragon—a fifteen-year-old farmboy—is shocked when a polished blue stone appears before him in the range of. ​The 15 year old resident of Carvahall, Eragon, starts the book by finding a strange blue stone while traversing The Spine, a mountainous area outside his.

He looked human except for his crimson hair and maroon eyes. Unfortunately, describing someone with only hair and eye color is both unimaginative and ineffective. Here we have to ask: he looked human to whom?

There is no character observing this, so that puts it in omniscient, rather than limited, perspective. By then it was too late to run. Limited perspective provides a closer connection to the viewpoint character.

Omniscient perspective sacrifices that closeness for greater freedom and flexibility. Give those observations some voice and breathing room; let them add personality to your work.

Stick to what characters are actually observing in the moment. The message had been correct: they were here. Or was it a trap?

Stop whoever is coming… or die. These first two paragraphs are too brief. They should slow down a little and provide more context… or die.

Who is he seeking and why? If he needs to remain mysterious, we should witness only his commands, not his thoughts. Around him shuffled twelve Urgals… they resembled men with bowed legs and thick, brutish arms made for crushing.

It was too dark for any human to see, but for him the faint moonlight was like sunshine streaming between the trees; every detail was clear and sharp to his searching gaze. I like the moonlight to sunshine simile here, because it provides a nice visual. Even so, Paolini is consistently doing too much telling and too little showing. His gaze surveyed the forest and found crickets singing in the grass, owls hiding in the branches, and the stems his party had trampled as they came down the hillside.

They wait longer in the woods, and… The Shade hissed in anger, and the Urgals shrank back, motionless. He suppressed his distaste—they smelled like fetid meat—and turned away. They were tools, nothing more. Then we have a reminder that the Urgals are worthless and the Shade is evil. They wait in the woods again. Just include one paragraph describing how the moon rises on the horizon or the protagonists grow hungry and tired. The smell was stronger this time.

Excited, he lifted a thin lip in a snarl. It is flowery? The emotional expression also needs work.

Even with the label, it still comes off as more angry than excited. Quivering, shaking, and shivering are used to describe human motions. Faint smudges emerged from the darkness and advanced down the trail.

Three white horses with riders cantered toward the ambush, their heads held high and proud, their coats rippling in the moonlight like liquid silver. The good guys have arrived! If they are emerging from it, it should be from a longer distance than the hearing range of a loose stone. The first time I read the second part of this clip, I thought the heads held high and rippling coats belonged to the riders.

This is a little odd, it suggests the riders are of secondary importance.

Maybe these are super magical horses? Redundancy Is Still Redundant the Third Time On the first horse was an elf with pointed ears and elegantly slanted eyebrows. His build was slim but strong, like a rapier. A powerful bow was slung on his back. A sword pressed against his side opposite a quiver of arrows fletched with swan feathers.

The last rider had the same fair face and angled features as the other. He remained unnaturally quiet, a long pale sword in his hand.


A within scratch curved down the blade. The weapon was thin enough to slip between a pair of ribs, yet stout enough to hack through the hardest armor. The Urgals could not see as well as the Shade; they groped like blind beggars, fumbling with their weapons.

An owl screeched, cutting through the silence. No one relaxed until the bird flew past. Then the monsters shivered in the cold night; one snapped a twig with his heavy boot. Eragon decides to follow his dream of Arya to Gil'ead, and Murtagh and Eragon rescue her, though Eragon has to battle Durza.

When Arya remains unconscious for days on end, Eragon decides to take a risk and communicate with their thoughts. Arya tells him how to find the Varden.

They flee to the Varden as they are being chased by Kull overlarge Urgals. As they are trapped by the Kull, Murtagh is revealed to be Morzan's son. A dwarf named Orik saves them with the help of some of the Varden. One of The Twins, two nasty bald men, examines Eragon's memories, but Murtagh refuses to let anyone into his head.

The leader of the Varden, Ajihad, imprisons Murtagh after he refuses again to allow his mind to be read, even though Ajihad recognizes Murtagh's voice. Eragon is properly introduced to Ajihad, his daughter Nasuada, the dwarf King Hrothgar, and his foster son Orik. The Varden are attacked by an army of Urgals. In the ensuing battle, Eragon gets separated from the main fighting and finds himself in a one-on-one duel with Durza.

In the duel, Eragon receives a large cursed scar on his back, but Arya and Saphira break Isidar Mithrim, the Star Rose, creating a distraction long enough for Eragon to stab Durza through the heart. In the aftermath, Ajihad is killed by a band of stray Urgals, and Murtagh and The Twins are captured. Meanwhile, Roran is wanted by the Empire.

His supporters help him fortify and defend Carvahall. He later evacuates to Surda along with most of the villagers, intending to join the Varden. Eragon then reveals his true feelings to Arya. After much persistence, Arya angrily rejects Eragon's suit. Meanwhile, Nasuada moves the Varden to the separate country of Surda which is ruled by King Orrin, and Roran moves the villagers of Carvahall to Surda, after their village was destroyed by the Ra'zac, who also captured Katrina.

Eragon returns to the Varden, and Nasuada allows the Urgals to join the ranks of the Varden, even though her decision is opposed by many. The next day there is a great battle against Galbatorix's minions. During the battle, a ship arrives with Roran and the entire village of Carvahall. Roran kills The Twins, who are revealed to have planned the death of Ajihad. Meanwhile, Eragon and Saphira confront an enemy Rider, who kills King Hrothgar, and turns out to be Murtagh, and Thorn, who hatched from the second egg and whose growth was accelerated by Galbatorix, making him almost as large as Saphira.

Murtagh says that he is sworn to Galbatorix, who extracted oaths of fealty from him and Thorn, and that he and Eragon are brothers. This he says in the ancient language, meaning he can't lie. He takes Zar'roc from Eragon, but shows him mercy, interpreting Galbatorix's orders in a different way. Eragon stays behind because he finds Katrina's father Sloan, who betrayed the villagers of Carvahall to the Ra'zac.

Then Eragon catches up with the rest of the Varden. He then goes to the Beor mountains and helps Orik become king of the dwarves, and Saphira fulfills her promise to mend Isidar Mithrim. After the defeat of one of the Empire's cities, Nasuada is captured by Murtagh, who becomes attached to her and heals her of her injuries, which causes an identity switch, breaking his oath to Galbatorix.

Eragon duels Murtagh, besting him. Then Eragon and Galbatorix have a fierce mental battle, where Eragon accidentally forces Galbatorix to commit suicide with an improvised spell. Murtagh and Thorn retreat to somewhere in the north to have some time to themselves, but Eragon tracks him down. Murtagh tells him the name of the ancient language. She takes with her the rescued green dragon egg, which soon hatches for her. The two dragons become mates shortly thereafter.

Eragon reworks the magic of the original pact between elves and dragons to include both dwarves and Urgals, allowing the dragon eggs to hatch for members of their races. Its name was invented by the author, although other place names in the series are drawn from real-world examples. The Empire is split by an untamed mountain range known as The Spine.

One peak, named Utgard from the Norse language [8] , contains the Rider's sanctuary where Vrael died. It was named for the artist John Jude Palencar before he was chosen as the series' cover artist. It is where the Ra'zac live. Northwest of the mainland lies the island of Vroengard, containing the city of Doru Araeba.

This used to be the home of the Riders before they fell. Now, it is inhabited by strange creatures - later named by Eragon - and is almost completely abandoned except for a few strange people that Eragon saw.

They have the ability to turn into any canine and appear as a human with a tail and wolf ears. She may or may not be an elf , spirits beings of pure energy , Shades a human that is possessed by a spirit or spirits that are stronger than the human vessel , and Ra'zac.

No one knows the true name of the ancient language, except for Eragon, Arya, Murtagh, and Galbatorix. The common is spoken by all, but mainly humans. Many races can speak Common, including the dragons through thought , though they more often communicate through the ancient language and through feelings and images.

Dwarvish is spoken somewhat obviously by the dwarves.
