'Greetings, Dragon Rider. It is a great honour to be chosen as a Rider. I have compiled these papers for you as an introduction to the most important peoples, places and things within Alagaesia. Study them most carefully, for some day your life may depend upon this information. Mine has, and more than once' - Eragon Shadeslayer.

In fifteen lavishly illustrated spreads, the reader is invited to explore the landscape and cities of Alagaesia and its many races, including dragons, humans, Urgals, dwarves and elves. Each spread is filled with special effects and stunning examples of paper engineering and other elements.
