I’m trying to find as many different books as I can so that you guys get some variety this month. This is a lesser known book I’m finding and I’m not sure why. It was a big favourite of mine when I was younger. What kid wouldn’t fall in love with a book about riding dragons right? It’s for a slightly younger audience but I’d still consider it middle grade. If you’ve read the series you’ll know immediately what it is by scrolling down!

If you guess The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini then you guessed right! I’m not going to say who is in this picture because that would be a spoiler, but this dragons name is Firnen. This piece was drawn by Ticcy who I found on DeviantArt. I really love this piece because you don’t often see picture of these two floating around. I love how regal the dragon looks and he’s actually really similar to the picture on the cover of the last book! I think the artist did a fantastic job taking the authors descriptions and bringing them to life.
It began with Eragon… It ends with Inheritance.
Not so very long ago, Eragon — Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider — was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders.
Long months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And ifthey cannot, no one can. There will be no second chance.
The Rider and his dragon have come further than anyone dared to hope. But can they topple the evil king and restore justice to Alagaësia? And if so, at what cost?
This is the spellbinding conclusion to Christopher Paolini’s worldwide bestselling Inheritance cycle.
“Why does everything have to be so hard? [Eragon] wondered.
Because, said Saphira, everyone wants to eat, but no one wants to be eaten.”
