Example text

Despite Eragon’s efforts, the forest around the farm filled with signs of the dragon’s existence. It was impossible to erase all the huge four-clawed footprints sunk deep in the snow, and he refused even to try to hide the giant dung heaps that were becoming far too common. The dragon had rubbed against trees, stripping off the bark, and had sharpened its claws on dead logs, leaving gashes inches deep. If Garrow or Roran went too far beyond the farm’s boundaries, they would discover the dragon.

To get information,” Eragon said. ” The old man grunted and reached for the door. Eragon noticed a gold ring on his right hand. Light glinted off a sapphire, highlighting a strange symbol carved on its face. “You might as well come in; we’ll be talking awhile. ” Inside, the house was darker than charcoal, an acrid smell heavy in the air. ” Eragon heard the old man move around, then a low curse as something crashed to the floor. ” A white spark flashed; a flame wavered into existence. Brom stood with a candle before a stone fireplace.

To that end he needed to talk with Brom, master of epics and legends—the only places where dragonlore survived. So when Roran went to get a chisel repaired in Carvahall, Eragon volunteered to go with him. The evening before they left, Eragon went to a small clearing in the forest and called the dragon with his mind. After a moment he saw a fast-moving speck in the dusky sky. The dragon dived toward him, pulled up sharply, then leveled off above the trees. He heard a lowpitched whistle as air rushed over its wings.
