Paolini, Christopher. Inheritance 1: Eragon. R. 20061115. A good mix of Tolkien High-Fantasy with a dash of Harry Potter. Epic feel, high elves, powerful mysterious evil. Interesting dragons. Nothing that you've never seen before, but a good interesting mix put together well with a few good twists to make it somewhat unique. Growing up and leaving home, finding friends, some excellent supporting characters, perhaps overly evil villains, but a staple of high fantasy. Well developed magic system, and societies. good especially for a first novel a 7.
