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.
The next day, the three men leave for the government castle. They succeed this time with lies and reach the room consisting of the scrolls they need to study. As they search through the records, Solembum appears to Eragon as a small boy and asks whether they need help. He reveals that the guard that let them in has told others about their presence and they’re on the way. They arrive and question them about being near the records and they once again lie, saying they are lost. The guards escort them from the castle, though they stole a map of Alagaësia on the way. They pore over the map and decide that the most possible place for the Ra’zac to beis the city of Dras-Leona where some Seithr oil was sent.
