Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The author of "Here, There Be Dragons" compiles a collection of essays from some of today's hottest YA authors--some of them no older than Christopher Paolini was when he wrote "Eragon"--who each present a different aspect of the series to engage and entertain Paolini fans.

Synopsis:

Millions of readers adore Christopher Paolinis Inheritance Cycle: its earnest hero, its breathtaking battles, and, of course, its awe-inspiring dragon Saphira. But theres so much more to the series than meets the eye—and Secrets of the Dragon Riders, edited by todays second hottest dragon-writer James A. Owen, shows readers what theyre missing.

Why might Roran be the real hero of the Inheritance Cycle? What does Paolinis writing have in common with role-play games and modern action films? Are teenage writers judged more harshly than their adult counterparts? The YA authors in Secrets of the Dragon Riders—some of them no older than Paolini when he wrote Eragon—each take on a different aspect of the series to engage and entertain Paolini fans.
