Eragon, a young adult fantasy novel, is the first book in the Inheritance Cycle. It tells the story of a young boy named Eragon who hatches a dragon, Saphira, out of a mysterious stone he finds in the woods. Eragon bonds closely with Saphira and becomes a dragon rider, drawing the attention of the evil king Galbatorix, who sends his servants, the Ra'zac, to kill him. While escaping from the Ra'zac, Eragon and his mentor Brom become embroiled in plots against the evil king.
Roran and Eragon are leaving Carvahall to return home and Roran reveals that he’s been offerd a job in a mill very far from Carvahall. He also announces that he will propose to Katrina. Eragon for his part is worried that his father will not accept the decision, worried about the work that needs to be done on the farm.
Now that Eragon knows that dragons are as intelligent as human beings, he sees his in a different light. Even with her reaching out to him, Eragon is in a fowl mood, something that she can also feel through their link. He begins listing names for the dragon, at first turned down because he’s listing male names for a female dragon and then just turned down because she doesn’t like them. Eventually, he says Saphira and she accepts the name, happy with the sound of it.
