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 two drank too much the night before and when they wake they can feel it. Searching the city, Brom warns Eragon to be wary and not do anything rash. Brom quickly uncovers the information they need about the oil and Eragon suggest they go undercover as slaves to carry the oil and use their cover to fight and kill the Ra’zac. Brom is intrigued but takes a couple of more days to gather information before they carry out their plan.
