The story takes place in an imaginary place called Alagaésia and other places like Hadarac Desert, Beor Mountains and Surda.
The main character is a poor orphan boy who lives with his uncle and has to go hunting for food. His name is Eragon and he is helpful, friendly and loving.
On a 3 to 8 day hunting trip Eragon finds a smooth, hollow, and oval stone.
