Arya from Eragon
I thought Arya was a great character. She’s smart and cunning which is pretty typical for elves. I love how proud their race is. They demand respect and they really do deserve it. They treasure everything that comes from nature and they know how the world works. They just have a way of thinking that I really admire because they act like a big family. This book isn’t mainly about elves but I loved how they were incorporated. They’re still a very important race to the series and it wouldn’t be the same without them. I find this is more of a younger teen book but if you’re willing to give it a shot you won’t be disappointed.

Summary: One boy . . . One dragon . . . A world of adventure.
When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon soon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.
Overnight his simple life is shattered, and he is thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic, and power. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for guidance, Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an Empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds.
Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders? The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands.
